Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Long Beach.

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.

When conflict arises within the family system it can create severe distress. My approach to family therapy begins with developing an understanding of the needs of each individual and the family unit as a whole. Based on this formulation a practical treatment plan is developed, which enables the family to create a healthy dynamic where conflicts can be resolved and a mutual understanding of the various perspectives of each family member can be recognized.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

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.

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.

Family counseling is an important and crucial part of the therapeutic process. It allows all members to be heard to work in a collective and collaborative manner to be able to solve difficulties or concerns. I use innovative techniques and skills to allow everyone to be understood. I have implemented games, activities and worksheets to allow for open communication.

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 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.

Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.

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.
