Family Therapist

Melissa Brentlinger, MA, LPC, LMFT

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of McAllen

I help couples and families uncover problems and effectively communicate their unmet needs and wants. I teach tools and skills to help them hear each other. I help them collaborate on solutions to their problems. We work together on productive ways to handle conflicts. There are no couples or families that do not inevitably have conflict. Much satisfaction comes in learning how to work together toward common goals.

Family Therapist

Dean Sims, MAR, LCDC

Addiction Recovery Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

I offer family sessions with clients because addiction is a family disease. You are a product of your family system. I utilize Bowen Family Systems as a theoretical framework. What a family session will look like in practice will be a series of phone sessions (conference call with multiple parties as needed). 1st session will involve your family member writing an Impact Letter to you describing in detail how your substance use has negatively impacted them and the entire family. You will listen and not get to respond. 2nd session you will get to read your reaction to hearing their letter. 3rd session will involve us discussing needs and expectations and getting everything on the table.

Family Therapist

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.
