As a MFT, family therapy entails looking at the family as a unit or "system", and identifying how the members' interactions affect the whole family. This approach takes pressure off the identified problem and invites families to work together for the benefit of everyone. Family therapy can benefit families going through significant changes/challenges such as divorce, loss, illness, conflicts, blended families,adoption, natural disasters and many more. Many families are greatly strengthened and have experience a sense of togetherness by working toward the goal of famly unity and peace. There are specific skills used in family therapy resulting in an effective and powerful experience.

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My training is in Marriage and Family Therapy. In a nutshell, this means that I believe that the family that you grew up in, and the relationship patterns and rules that affected your family, have a profound impact on who you are today. For instance, how did your family deal with conflict? Were they stand off-ish or affectionate? Critical or nurturing? Where you allowed to fail in your family? Were you accepted for being you? All of these questions help us explore your past and how it relates to your life in the present. It also helps guide you in creating goals, and changing what isn’t working effectively for you in your life right now.

As children we learn how relationships work from our families. Families have subtle and not-so-subtle rules about how to treat each other that get passed down from generation to generation. When these patterns result in hurt and misunderstanding, family therapy is an opportunity for change. If you're uncomfortable with how you feel in your family, or how you act with family members or loved ones, reflecting on the patterns you've learned and connecting with your emotions will help you choose how to relate, instead of being in reactive mode. I create a safe place where family members have the opportunity to learn to express needs and support each other in healthy ways.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

We all have a story about how our parents messed us up. Kids essentially come out of the womb looking to building their case against their parents. And parents, we just try to do better than our parents did. The problem is: what we need and what our kids need are different, and it's often impossible to bridge that gap on our own. Whether the issue stems from divorce, a new life stage, sibling conflict, or something else entirely, I help your family to overcome gaps in knowledge, empathy, communication, and understanding so individuals can come together, or accept that a specific piece of the family puzzle might just never be a fit.

I believe family relationships are the foundation of our experiences in the world. When one member of a family is hurting, not only is it likely that others are as well, but there is great potential in the ability of the family system to help in the healing process. For the first few sessions, I say “the more the better!” I will either continue seeing everyone at once, or change it session by session, seeing one member or a few members together - depending on the family and the difficulties they present with. I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

Family therapy is needed when the family isn't working well. Maybe there are a lot of fights between parents and children or maybe one of the family members is using drugs or alcohol. Family therapy is a place where the whole family can talk about what is bothering them. Sometimes people want more closeness and sometimes family members want more distance. Family therapy is a great way to identify and sort out these issues.

Family therapy is a unique experience to invite any or all family members to join at various times during the counseling process, as determined by the family and the therapist. Families work as a system -- what one person does affects the rest of the family, and vice versa. Family therapy allows an opportunity to come together to work on and understand the unique dynamics of your family. We have worked with parents and children, as well as adult married couples and in laws, blended families, and more.

In family therapy, you will learn how to communicate so that others will listen and how to listen so that others will talk. I will be very involved in the session - stopping family members when they are being mean or rude and encouraging when someone's opinion or feelings have not been heard. There are no taboo subjects and everyone in the room will be respected.

As a marriage and family therapist I enjoy working with couples, families, and blended families. Sometimes couples need help to work through issues such as infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, sexual issues, defensiveness, in-law problems, step-parent or ex-spouse issues just to name a few. I appreciate the effectiveness of emotionally focused couples therapy. This approach promotes compassion and emotional intimacy for couples. I also utilize the Prepare/Enrich Inventory, which helps couples identify their strengths and areas of growth. Then we process though the results of you inventory. Whether you are engaged or are looking to improve your marriage couple counseling can help.

There are many problems that can occur in our family relationships. it's very easy for conflict to occur in marriage, with children, family of origin, or even in-laws. As a therapist working with families for many years I've found that many problems can be solved through respectful communication of deeper feelings while developing greater understanding and appreciation of other family members. At the same time, there are some family situations with extremely difficult, defensive personalities that only create continued frustration, so that the best solution is to set clear boundaries for limiting the impact of such toxic personalities.
