Family Therapy can be an incredible modality in shifting an entire family from unhealthy dynamics and unhappiness to peace and healthy relationships. Since my primary specialty is Addiction, I see many families with this obstacle. The solution often is not only that the addict needs to change but the entire family system. My passion is working with families and seeing this beautiful transformation come from such despair.

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!

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 19468 - Nearby to West Chester.

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.

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.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

What family doesn't have challenges that are stressful, disappointing, confusing, and often lead to feelings of hopelessness? I offer a safe place for family members to come together and begin the discussion of making life better. Utilizing a family systems approach, I can help you better clarify roles and expectations and develop better communication skills. Helping family members honestly talk about differences and develop skills to build healthy family relationships is possible and an essential reason I am dedicated to family counseling.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 19087 - Nearby to West Chester.

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.
