Family Therapist

Water & Stone, a Creative Arts Therapy PLLC, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT, LCPAT

Founder & Director

Within driving distance of New Milford

People entering into family therapy can often benefit from finding new ways to communicate or exist in the same space as each other. It's a challenge that is made easier with creative arts therapy, which brings in alternative ways to express, communicate, and reflect. At Water & Stone the therapist working with the family will help focus on the specific issue that brings everyone into a session while also exploring deeper connections, patterns, and relationships that might need attention and healing as well. Since there are multiple therapists available it is also possible for individuals to see their own therapist within the same practice when that is of interest.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

All families experience conflict, particularly during times of transition. How each member reacts and adjusts can impact the well-being of the family as a whole. Meredith works with families to identify ineffective patterns of communication and behavior, while offering emotional support to all members. Often, conflict within the family stems from an underlying issue within the parents' relationship. Meredith specializes in working with couples in conflict to resolve difficulties, teach new strategies, and enhance their relationship satisfaction.

Family Therapist

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of New Milford

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Family Therapist

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

The teenage years can be a difficult time for both the teen and the parents. We work with both adolescents and families to help alleviate issues at home. There are two options for working with adolescents. We can work individually or through family therapy. Individual therapy would be like any other therapy, and the information would be confidential. Family work would incorporate all family members and its aim is to help family members, not just the teens, improve communication and solve family problems. We work on learning how to handle family situations differently to create a better home environment for everyone.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Family Therapist

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I work with parents and family members of children with developmental delays. It is hard enough to raise a child in this day and age. The stress and conflict associated with caring for a child with special needs can be devastating and overwhelming if you do not have the support and tools you need. Know that you are not alone. One in five children are diagnosed with ASD and it seems that almost everyone has a family member or friend touched by special needs issues. I am here to help whether it be working through feelings, venting, managing difficult issues or behaviors with your children or navigating the difficult systems that are in place to get them the services they need.

Family Therapist

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of New Milford

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.

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

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 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.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

When a family doesn’t work well together there’s little peace, contentment or fun at home. I work with families to help identify the non-working dynamics that may be repetitively occurring and causing ruptures and resentments. Family therapy can help strengthen the resiliency of a family after a crisis, as well as break long-standing destructive patterns. Sessions allow for everyone’s voice to be heard and often include defining each individual’s role and responsibility.
