Families come in all shapes and sizes, and nobody provides you with a manual to navigate the issues that may arise as a family. I help families address the concerns that are specific to them, and aim to understand the personal issues that they are going through. I work from a therapy model that prides on creating a safe environment for all members to feel comfortable in expressing themselves and their needs. Together, we will find the tools that will help your family communicate better and reconnect! I am available for a free 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether family therapy with me is right for you - to schedule, send an email to info@nassauwellness.com or call/text (516) 387

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.

Family therapy is a type of counseling that involves working on family issues as a whole or unit. It is usually sought after to help the family resolve all sorts of conflicts and most importantly improve communication to strengthen the family bonds. Your type of therapy is determined by your specific situation and with your overall goals in mind. Family therapy is often short-lived as families learn the necessary skills to function well on their own long-term.

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.

Often, parents come in with their child or children presenting a particular problem behavior or emotional issue. While it is often important for the child to engage in individual psychotherapy, it may also be helpful to engage the entire family in treatment in order to discover patterns in communication, behavior, and boundaries which may be influencing the particular presenting concerns. Family therapy works to improve overall communication, and build positive, trusting, and balanced relationships.

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.
