Family Therapist

Cheryl Sparks, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

Families are very interesting and fun to work with. Every family has a unique and powerful strength to survive any obstacle. That strength can be hard to find if it is covered by years of loss, pain, and/or trauma. I offer a systemic, structural family therapy model that helps families communicate more effectively, develop appropriate boundaries, create trusting and fulfilling relationships, and establish healthy attachments in order to make the home environment more enjoyable.

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.

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....

Licensed Professional Counselor & Addiction Therapist

Families of loved ones are often very affected by those with mental health disorders and substance use disorders. There are so many questions and its difficult to know how to support your loved one without enabling. At the same time, your own mental health can take a toll with trying to help them get well. I work individually with families to answer their questions, learn how to properly support their loved ones. I also work with the families of the individuals with mental health or substance use disorders in order to open up lines of communication and re-establish feelings of peace and connection in the family.

Being a relationship therapist means that I believe that the systems we live in (especially our families) are key to our mental health. My training gives me perspective on how best to help you fix the damage that has been done within the family, and to help you move forward better than ever. Whether you come in to therapy by yourself, with a partner, or with a family member, we can work on whatever family issues you need to work through.

Ariel Stern, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Coming to counseling as a family is one of the bravest and more challenging steps that people who love each other can take. Often times, an event or specific incident will motivate a family to seek therapy. Whether your family is working through a specific crisis or hoping to improve overall relationships, I can help. I will work with your family to identify patterns that result in the same problems repeating. Once those patterns are recognized, we can break the negative cycles and create new, more effective ways of coping with challenges.

Family Therapist

Jay Jemail, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Parkside

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!

Family Therapist

Barbara Shaw, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Parkside

As a trained Marriage & Family Therapist and a mother of two, I can help you to navigate the challenges of marriage and parenting. Simply put, we all want to be loved and accepted for who we are. What family does not wish this for everyone involved? Unfortunately, as a result of day to day stressors, ineffective communication, learned defensive behaviors, and a simple lack of know-how, families can fail to accomplish this simple task for one another. Therapy can turn this cycle around by allowing family members to rediscover each other's perspectives and true selves, replacing conflict and misunderstanding, with harmony and compassion.

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.
