Family life is a multi-layered experience for each person. No two family members experience family life, or the relationships within the family, in exactly the same way. For this reason, family therapy is a very active, dynamic process. Although several family members may see me initially to explain what they think is problematic, I like to see the entire family together as soon as possible. My work with families focuses on helping each person explain their needs and hear how others in the family feel hurt and misunderstood. Reducing the stress and conflict within the family is the purpose of learning in sessions how to communicate clearly.

A family is a system. When one member of the system is experiencing something, he/she will, affect the other members of the family. Family therapy needs to be done right. It is a delicate balancing act--making sure each member is feeling heard and supported, but also to have the members acknowledge that each plays a role in promoting positive change. Open minds, open hearts are required for this to work.

I am a licensed family therapist and teach family therapy. I used to do individual work with children. I don't anymore because in 30 plus years working with families I have found that family therapy is more effective. Children and teenagers respond to the patterns in their families. Whatever problems children are having, dysfunctional family patterns will make them worse, and parents, and families in general, can have more positive impact on their children than a therapist can. Family therapy can also be useful with adult issues. We all have relationships with spouses, siblings, and parents that continue into adulthood,. A therapist can help families to maximize strengths and shift patterns

Often one family member stands out as "troubled". But every close relative is hurt by painful family dynamics, many repeated down generations. Ultimately, such families produce children, who become adults, without the child they were ever having been given a chance to grow up. In this state of developmental arrest, the damaged Child Self lives life, housed in the older adult body, still unconsciously yearning to have its unmet early needs for love and approval fulfilled. My successful Family Therapy relieves your pain, teaches parents and grown children New Behaviors, New Ways to Communicate, and Solidifies each one's SELF-Love. That is, the SELF-EMPATHY essential to feel what others feel.

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.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

We come from a systems approach when working with families. We teach family members how to communicate more effectively with one another. There is an emphasis on personal responsibility and each family member looking at how their behavior is contributing to the problems. Building empathy between family members is also a main focus for us when working with families. We strive for families to leave sessions feeling more connected and understood by each other with the tools to be more successful in their communications. We do family therapy both in the office and in homes.

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Lodi

I was trained in Minuchin Family Therapy with Jorge Colapinto during the 1980's at the Community Center for Mental Health in Dumont, New Jersey, where I worked with family members of the severely mentally ill population. I've been providing family and couples therapy since that time, either with individual families or in a multi-family group format. Structural Family Therapy identifies the maladaptive communication and behavioral patterns within the family structure. Sometimes changing just one dynamic among family members can increase adaptive functioning, communication, and relationships. My degrees are: MA in psychology, MS in clinical social work, and PhD in social work.

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.
