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.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Lake Success

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.

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.

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.

All families experience conflict, particularly during times of transition. How each member reacts and adjusts can impact the well-being of the family as a whole. Meredith works with families to identify ineffective patterns of communication and behavior, while offering emotional support to all members. Often, conflict within the family stems from an underlying issue within the parents' relationship. Meredith specializes in working with couples in conflict to resolve difficulties, teach new strategies, and enhance their relationship satisfaction.

Family issues can feel daunting. They can cause much inner stress, grief and even illness. Addressing tension in family relationships is key to living a happy, wholesome life. I see each individual as a sub-unit of family life. I have done great systems work in working with the entire family unit, in creating a space to discuss issues, allow anger, and at the same time, finding a space to develop creative solutions and better ways of working through conflict and pain. Together we create a space to process the strained dynamic and work on understanding, respecting and improving connection with one another, allowing space for harmony, compassion and love to be expressed.

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 Clinical Social Worker

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.

As a family therapist I subscribe to a system based modality. I believe it is imperative for any family that all lines of communication must remain open and productive between members. My clients can expect to learn that the appropriate processing of feelings honestly in therapy is the cornerstone for their family healing. Restoration of full family function is my only goal.

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.

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
