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.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

We come from a systems approach when working with families. We teach family members how to communicate more effectively with one another. There is an emphasis on personal responsibility and each family member looking at how their behavior is contributing to the problems. Building empathy between family members is also a main focus for us when working with families. We strive for families to leave sessions feeling more connected and understood by each other with the tools to be more successful in their communications. We do family therapy both in the office and in homes.

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.

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.

In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I have served as the emotional and verbal connection between family members. Modeling healthy dialogue and building emotional trust and intimacy, I facilitate family exercises. Having each member describe how their brain works, neurotypical or neuroatypical, and their emotional temperament, allows family members to know each other from the inside out. Each person describes what they need from the other to feel more understood, approved of, and loved. Pairing family members up to become partners in change to work collaboratively and collectively in building a healthy family culture for ongoing comfort and unity, has been a primary focus of my practice.

Family can be a wonderful source of strength and love, but the dynamism of so many individuals and their own needs and desires can also create different and new challenges. My goal as a therapist that works with both individuals and couples is to help you understand your family dynamics and needs so that I can provide you with the tools and techniques to thrive within your family life as it is now.

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.

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.

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.

People seek out family therapy when they are faced with challenges in their relationships, raising children, and problems involving extended family and friends. Adopting a relationship perspective, I do not negate the significance of individual intra-psychic of human relationships, or the family social system. If you are currently experiencing a challenging situation with your immediate, or extended, family it might be worth considering the kind of professional support marriage and family counseling can provide.

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.

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.

Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.
