Families are complicated; especially blended families. I devote an entire chapter in my book, "The Second Wives Club" to the difficulties of bringing two families together, possibly under the same roof. I try to hear each member of the family relate just what is bothering her/him and offer concrete solutions to resolve the differences. The same approach is used with other families...direct,specific advice and goal-oriented solutions for the greatest benefit to every member of the family.

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.

Family therapy is an active approach that Chris Colasuonno, LCSW-R uses to help bring peace and harmony for the family. There are a lot of dynamics in a family where psychotherapy and counseling can balance out clients and family. A family's culture, dynamics, viewpoint can play a big part in how a family interacts. Many families have issues with mental illness and substance abuse issues that effect each member. Some families benefit from couples therapy, relationship counseling that can lower anger and get individuals to communicate effectively. Chris possesses a lot of experience to balance out a family member's viewpoint using cognitive behavior therapy to find solutions.

My approach explores the family dynamics that keep people from living authentic lives. Unresolved issues from the past may cause the heart to shut down. If left unattended, this disruption in the flow of love is carried across generations, ripples into the shadows of the family landscape, often emerging as illness, emotional difficulties, and broken relationships. All family members are invited to attend and together we work through the issues in a safe caring environment.

The reason why I love doing family therapy is because unlike working with just one member of a family group, I get to see the generational themes that have caused the family system to become compromised. Besides my Ph.D. I also have a masters in marriage, family and child counseling. This has always been a bonus for my clients because I am able to pull from many different modalities as I help your family put itself back together again. If a family is fragmented..some of the members are suffering and carrying the burden for the rest of the family. Its my job to isolate the primary "disconnects" and get down to business as we uncover what has led the family into a dark place.

Families quite often are going through various changes simultaneously, some more impacting than others. Babies are born, family members get married and may bring new families with them, siblings move away, and parents get older. I like to work with families and support them as they navigate and manage these changes, and continue to redefine their relationships with one another.

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.

Your family is the center of your world. When there is sadness or conflict within your family it is difficult to feel good about life. I want to help your family heal and grow. As a family therapist I help individuals and couples overcome life's challenges including divorce or affairs. Marriage counseling can help you learn to communicate more effectively and to feel closer and more connected to your spouse. Many families have challenges. With commitment and patience we can work to overcome the challenges in your family. We can restore the passion and affection that you once shared. I know this is not easy. But your family is worth the effort. Love grows here.

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.
