I am am trained marriage and family therapist, and will help your family exlore and improve the interaction styles between family members that are provocative, insensitive, emotionally misattuned, or in any way unproductive. We will look at ways in which children have become inappropriately drawn into parents' marital conflicts, and how that affects power dynamics within the family. Most importantly, we will examine systems of interactions that unfortunately may be supporting and maintaining pain within and between family members.

Family therapy focuses on relationshipswithin the family unit, and takes place with other family members present. My approach is to work individual first, and then bring in the family together so we can work-out what is working or what is not working. Individual counseling works because we can first see if there are any personal issues first, then bring it to family sessions.

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 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.

A family is a complex system, with a great many dynamics. Add to that how parents bring their past, history, childhood, and emotional baggage into the parenting of their own children. It can feel overwhelming: where do you start. But parenting and running a family can be amazing and healing. You can succeed in raising happy, successful children, while also working through the left over issues of your own childhood. You can be stronger as a result of your family of origin experiences, and create the family life you dream of and will be proud of. Get clear on the goals of parenting – independent and confident children, with life skills and emotional tools. Enjoy your family again.

Juliette Sussmann, LMHC,NCC

New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor

My interest in family counseling came from studying the dynamics which make up a family, sometimes for many generations. Patterns exist as a result of shared beliefs (or rules like in my family of origin). Each family member has their own way of understanding what takes place and by using conjoint family therapy, everyone has a voice from the oldest to the youngest. As a therapist, I provide an environment for exploration, curiosity & opportunity to create better choices and which patterns the family as a whole find beneficial.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I work with many families in all stages of the life cycle, facing numerous and varied challenges. This is a complex area of therapy for which I have a real passion. Families today face particularly difficult situations and can often feel overcome their resources for dealing it all. Reaching out for help to a qualified therapist is wise and most often quite helpful.

Family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family. Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships. In family counseling we will aim to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve problems and assess family patterns that may be hindering the dynamic of the family. As the family works to uncover the source of the problem through therapy they can learn ways to support each other and proactively work on the problem together.

The family can be the very foundation of support, comfort, and love, but it can also be the greatest source of stress, strain, and sorrow. Our compassionate and experienced family counselors help family members have a closer, stronger, and more rewarding relationship with each other and teach family members how to resolve conflict in a healthy way. Our counselors can assist parents to address the unique needs of children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral, communicative, and learning issues. They will help facilitate much-needed dialogue between feuding family members. The counselors will assess how best to treat the family. Sometimes, counseling will be conducted with the entire family present and sometimes with just the designated child. At...(view profile to read more)

Elizabeth Zimmerman, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Highlands

We're shaped by our relationships with our family members for life. Healthy families share certain core traits. In families that thrive, people share a willingness to change and to own their part in creating conflict, yet feel safe enough to express differences in feelings and beliefs. Whether a family is struggling with chronic conflict or emotional distance, the process of family therapy is a powerful vehicle for change. I help families increase awareness of current patterns and develop new ways of relating and interacting. While the process of family therapy is different for each family, the goals remain the same: to improve communication, increase trust, and strengthen family bonds.
