Sometimes families lose their way in this busy world and need a place where they can come together and communicate and listen in a safe place. With the use of family systems therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, play therapy (for children) and solution-focused techniques we will work together to increase your family functioning to be able to withstand the many demands on todays families.

Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

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.

A lot of who we are today as adults comes from our families of origins. Even when we are conscious about the not so good areas and set great intentions to not repeat patterns, we see where what we claimed we wouldn't do or be seems to pop up without our noticing. In family work, whether together or individually, we go backwards to go forward to figure out who and how you want and choose to show up moving forward. You can't change what you were given but you can work on deciding on how you show up in your future.

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.

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 Professional Counselor

Family therapy is unique in comparison to individual therapy, as the focus is placed on the dynamics within the family and not on one individualized person. My family therapy approach is to understand the goals of each individual, as well a the family unit as a whole. The focus is traditionally placed on communication styles within the family, different alliances formed within the family and how the family is functioning together.

Family Therapy is not only for people with small children. I specialize in helping adult members of families to improve their communication and resolve conflicts. The goal is to teach family members skills to work through their long standing dysfunctional patterns, to deepen their family connections, and to facilitate the healing process. I work with both gay and straight families. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

My training in Family Counseling brings the whole family together in one room to discuss, argue, agree and disagree with the benefit of a trained moderator -the therapist-whose sees the unit as a whole as well as all the different moving parts. My goal is to help you communicate, identify the sources of both love and irritation and hopefully help each of the members work as unified whole while maintaining individual identities. I work with "families" of all genders and types, as well as traditional families.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

As a family therapist, I evaluate functioning within a client’s systems of interaction: the family, school, work and community environments. I will often invite family members into the room to nurture change and development with the goal of improving relationships. My objective is to influence conversations in a way that accentuates the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider system to initiate change and ultimately improve functioning.

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

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

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.
