Family Therapist

Jay Jemail, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Lansdowne

Dr. Jemail was trained at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, the birthplace of family therapy. After ten years training, teaching, and doing clinical work in the field, she is grateful that she learned from many gifted teachers to use herself not just her skills. The family is a system and it develops its own rules of operating. The task in therapy is to understand the rules or lack of rules and to help the system organize around more adaptive ways of functioning. It involves clarifying roles, boundaries, and improving communication that is respectful and maximizes individual growth and considers the developmental needs of its members. Families can be different and be healthy!

I believe that with the increase in stress being placed on families, learning how to be the best parent that you can be is crucial. I work with parents and families to help gain insight as to what hampers the ability to have the healthy family relationships you desire. I help parents to learn the tools to permanently shift the quality of the family relationships.

Family therapy can be a place where all members of a family are safe to discuss their concerns. It is also a place where you can hear each other in new and surprising ways. Being willing to hear, understand and respond to the surprising feelings behind the anger or withdrawal that blocks closeness in your family can set the stage for more cooperation, compromise and a new strategy for interacting without hurt. I will help you do the work of connecting emotionally and strategizing about new ways to cope with old problems. Call me for an appointment to discuss your family's particular difficulties. As a therapist, a wife, and a mother of teenagers, I bring professional and personal resources.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Families are under tremendous pressure to function well together without having the skills to do that. I work with the family to develop skills in listening, appreciation, working more effectively as a team.In our current over-scheduled, over-pressured world, families are confronting problems they have little capacity to do anything about. We can tend to cope by getting stuck in a narrow range of behaviors and responses even if they are not helpful. A child who has learned to have temper tantrums when she is angry, and her parents who have learned to punish or pamper her, are stuck in maladaptive, non-growthful environments—‘a bad play’. It’s like playing the same part in the same play on the....

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.

Eugene Kayser, M.A., M.F.T.

PA Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of East Lansdowne

Family counseling is the most powerful form of therapy I know. For years, individuals with social and relationship problems were pathologized and treated alone. With the advent of Family Therapy, individual problems were considered a manifestation of issues through the entire family system. I work with everybody involved with the “patient” in the same room at the same time. Parents and children, brother and sisters have their first chance in years to speak and be heard by others in the family. I maintain order and safety, and engage the family in a balanced and fair manner. The results are often amazing.

Jennifer McCarron, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified EMDR Therapist

Within driving distance of East Lansdowne

I have worked with families for over 25 years and find it one of the most exciting and effective forms of therapy. It requires special training and skills to sit with a group of people, many of whom are upset with each other, and help them find a way through the pain to healing for them all. I have trained with some of the founders of Family Therapy, and worked with at-risk children in their homes and my office. Nothing is more satisfying.

The late Erma Bombeck wrote, "Family - The Ties that Bind . . . and Gag!" So it is. In Family Systems Therapy, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts in that each member of the family influences and is influenced by every other member of the family. Most of these influences are outside of conscious awareness. Bringing unconscious patterns of relationship and emotional reactions to light is the benefit of family work. Family therapy complements individual therapy because, as one member of the family seeks change, the family system will respond in a way that naturally seeks constancy. Making change difficult. I love supporting parents create lasting change in their homes!

Distressed family members too often exclusively focus their efforts on changing their difficult sibling, parent, grandparent or in-law. This is ineffective. Difficult family members often resist such efforts. I teach each family member how to first work on changing their own self-defeating emotional and behavioral reactions in response to their difficult family members. Once someone calms down and not gets so upset about the other people in their family they can influence other people to find better ways to live with or at least gracefully tolerate each other. I show each family member how to work on themselves in order to have a better chance of influencing others. Think about this.

Licensed Psychologist

It has been said that members of a family are like the creatures on a child's mobile - when one moves, they all move. I help families understand their relationships with each other, and how each family member influences and impacts the entire family unit. I work with families to help them learn effective communication and problem solving, while respecting individual autonomy.

Many individual problems become understandable if we understand more about how the person functions within his or her family. Without that understanding, it is often difficult for the person to change or feel better. Family therapy creates an opportunity to "change the rules" within the family, and change old habits that lead to unhappiness. This approach to therapy is particularly effective in helping children, and helpful in helping parents become more successful caregivers.
