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.

Do you experience behavior problems within your family? Are there conflicts that cause anger, sadness or worry? Have you experienced divorce or abuse? We will explore role behaviors and how they affect a family's emotions, with the intent to change those behaviors in a more positive way. Working with all family members, our goals are to understand and to help you utilize mediation and compromise, to find solutions to negative attitudes which interfere with daily family life.

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 therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

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.

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

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Chestnut Ridge

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.

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.

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.

If your teenager is struggling with one or more of the above issues, we recommend the following: 1. Individual sessions will teach your child skills for decreasing symptoms, regulating emotions, and gaining self-awareness about the process of self-change. 2. Family sessions will address your child’s specific needs in the context of your family. We believe it is essential to view your child as one part of the whole – your family. 3. Support Groups for ‘Tweens (ages 9-12) and Teens (ages 13-17) will give your child the opportunity to express him/herself in a supportive, safe environment.

Families are complicated. Each person in a family plays his or her own role, and the way each person behaves when the whole family is together is not necessarily the same as when they are apart. At the Lukin Center, we use emotionally focused therapy to help families understand the complex dynamics among all family members and to help each individual in the group feel heard, supported, and understood.
