My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I bring specialized experience in working with families with a wide variety of needs. Our family system, both past and present and cultural traditions have a great influence on us individually and in our relations to others. We will focus on issues of communication, boundaries, parenting of children and teens, rules, behavior in and out of the home, effects of divorce, remarriage, blending step families, and life transitions.

When there is dysfunction in a family, going to therapy can be a very effective way for the entire family to learn how to communicate and express themselves in a way that the other members can hear them. They will also learn how to listen and hear each other. There is often an "identified patient" assigned by other family members but it is generally the family's dynamics that need to be explored rather than focusing on one member. I will help you to see, understand and change those dynamics.

Families are complicated. Each person in a family plays his or her own role, and the way each person behaves when the whole family is together is not necessarily the same as when they are apart. At the Lukin Center, we use emotionally focused therapy to help families understand the complex dynamics among all family members and to help each individual in the group feel heard, supported, and understood.

Licensed Psychologist

I focus on specific relationships , rather than the entire family. Like I do in couples work, I would see the two of you both together and individually. I evaluate these cases carefully to make sure that I would be able to be of service to both of you. Usually whatever is going wrong has a long history, and we will unravel that. It may take a bit of time, but can be done if you are willing and patient.

Family can be a wonderful source of strength and love, but the dynamism of so many individuals and their own needs and desires can also create different and new challenges. My goal as a therapist that works with both individuals and couples is to help you understand your family dynamics and needs so that I can provide you with the tools and techniques to thrive within your family life as it is now.

In 07078 - Nearby to Garwood.

Family therapy is an extremely rewarding area of my practice. If one or more members of a family are hurting, everyone is affected. Fortunately, healing to those family members also brings healing to everyone. By examining the underlying issues that may be affecting family relationships, I am able to address longstanding difficulties and bring resolution and growth to a family.

Family Therapist

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor

In 07054 - Nearby to Garwood.

When a loved one has an addiction or alcohol problem, the whole family suffers. The impact may not be immediately evident, but it is there, festering and creating anger, resentment, insecurity and other emotional and often financial issues. Families often feel beat up by the addict and then beat up by the treatment centers, who offer addict focused education and minimal family treatment. Who is supporting you, the family, when your family weekend is over? You loved one is released from treatment with an aftercare plan. What is your aftercare plan? Living with a newly recovering person doesn’t have to mean walking on eggshells. Compassionate family focused education, coaching and therapy help families heal and create lives worth living.

Is your family fighting? Do you avoid discussing certain issues? Is a family member suffering or engaging in self-defeating behaviors that scare the entire family?

If your family is struggling, please consider contacting us. We would be happy to answer your questions and schedule an appointment to begin the work of improving your family's situation.

We will explore role behaviors and how they affect a family's emotions, with the intent to change those behaviors in a more positive way. Working with all family members, our goals are to understand and to help you utilize mediation and compromise, to find solutions to negative attitudes which interfere with daily family life.

I work with expecting and new parents around issues that come up either in planning for a new baby or in the postpartum year. I offer two services, one in my clinical practice treating the range of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, which often involves work with partners and family members. I also provide parent coaching services, and you can find more information about this on my professional website.

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

In 10003 - Nearby to Garwood.

In working with families and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.
