PsychoTherapist and PsychoAnalyst

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Founder & Director

Within driving distance of Baxter Estates

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.

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.

Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.

Helping you find wholeness...

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.

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Baxter Estates

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.
