Family Therapist

Jay Jemail, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Upland

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!

Families come in all forms especially in our changing times. The stresses of life show up in our families lives. Families change over time. Dealing with young children is different than a family with teenagers or no children at all. We need to negotiate these changes in our families. At REACH Counseling we believe in the strength of families and helping families to communicate and connect at a deeper level. We specialize in exploring what intergenerational patterns are affecting your family, how you may be dealing with transitions and how you can make your family strong.

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....

I provide sessions specifically designed with this in mind. Families who are struggling will greatly benefit from sessions that I give on How to have a Happy and United Family.

Sam Romirowsky, Ph.D

Psychologist

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.

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.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

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!

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.
