Each of you has a role being played out in your family - and possibly not the obvious one you imagine. I take a 'structuralist' approach to family therapy - looking at what is taking place between members rather than to individuals. We will explore these events/relationships and work on changing patterns of interaction that on one hand have developed in your family, but on the other are likely continuations of patterns played out before, perhaps for generations. These can change - and it is usually for everyone's benefit.

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? Family Therapy can help each individual take responsibility for his/her own behavior and make the necessary changes to improve life satisfaction. Family therapy also allows for each member to learn how to communicate effectively and respectfully, so that the entire family can be more constructive at handling any crisis or challenge. 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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

When there are difficulties in our family, they tend to also affect other areas of our lives. With everyone participating (or just the couple if that is the prime area of the situation), it is possible to move to better ways of working together as a family. When this is done, you will find that your family again becomes the rock on which everything is built, allowing you to experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher will guide your family as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

Amy Armstrong, MS, NCC, MCC, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

When I work with teens, I do like to keep the parents involved. Sometimes, my work with a young family member reveals patterns within the family system that cannot be resolved effectively by working with just that family member. By having everyone in the family unit to share perspectives, concerns, we uncover assumed roles, responsibilities, and labels that may be dysfunctional for the family system.

Family Therapist

Ari Fox, LCSW-R

Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

There are times when family dynamics become hard to manage. For a variety of reasons and circumstances, relationships can become strained. For example, a life-changing event like the birth of a child, an illness or a loss can put enormous strain on the family system. Behavior problems of a child or teen may be a stressor for the family. Siblings may have difficulty getting along or parents may differ on limit setting. Ari has worked with many families to identify strengths and weaknesses and has helped them to work together as a unit. Depending on the specific needs of the family, Ari will see a family together or in various configurations. Please visit www.copewithschool.com for more info.

Family Therapist

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

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.

Family Therapist

Helen Borel, RN,MFA,PhD

PsychoTherapist and PsychoAnalyst

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

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.

Family Therapist

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

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.

I am not the traditional family therapist who will support family members in talking out problems or concerns. Instead I make family therapy fun and support my clients in healing relationships through filial (family) play and parenting support. Family play allows for so many changes such as providing the child with appropriate control, establishing boundaries, learning to communicate positively and improving problem solving skills. Parenting support helps adults strengthen and improve the way they respond to their children, which allows for improved behavior from the child.

Family Therapist

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Perth Amboy

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
