Families are complicated. Each person in a family plays his or her own role, and the way each person behaves when the whole family is together is not necessarily the same as when they are apart. At the Lukin Center, we use emotionally focused therapy to help families understand the complex dynamics among all family members and to help each individual in the group feel heard, supported, and understood.

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.

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.

Family Therapy is not only for people with small children. I specialize in helping adult members of families to improve their communication and resolve conflicts. The goal is to teach family members skills to work through their long standing dysfunctional patterns, to deepen their family connections, and to facilitate the healing process. I work with both gay and straight families. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.

In working with families and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

When a family doesn’t work well together there’s little peace, contentment or fun at home. I work with families to help identify the non-working dynamics that may be repetitively occurring and causing ruptures and resentments. Family therapy can help strengthen the resiliency of a family after a crisis, as well as break long-standing destructive patterns. Sessions allow for everyone’s voice to be heard and often include defining each individual’s role and responsibility.

I focus on specific relationships , rather than the entire family. Like I do in couples work, I would see the two of you both together and individually. I evaluate these cases carefully to make sure that I would be able to be of service to both of you. Usually whatever is going wrong has a long history, and we will unravel that. It may take a bit of time, but can be done if you are willing and patient.

What do you do when your family life is such a struggle…when you’ve read every psychology book, magazine and blog to get answers but the advice is contradictory and usually impractical? If it seems like you don’t know which way to turn, then you’ve come to the right place. Through proven, practical techniques, I can help you work through the stress, anger and conflict that arises from issues that can prevent you from fully enjoying time with your family.

The teenage years can be a difficult time for both the teen and the parents. We work with both adolescents and families to help alleviate issues at home. There are two options for working with adolescents. We can work individually or through family therapy. Individual therapy would be like any other therapy, and the information would be confidential. Family work would incorporate all family members and its aim is to help family members, not just the teens, improve communication and solve family problems. We work on learning how to handle family situations differently to create a better home environment for everyone.

Are members of your family having a tough time getting along? Perhaps your family needs some help ironing out communication problems. Or perhaps conflict is causing tremendous strain or tearing the family apart. Family therapy can help teach you & your family important skills to help deepen your connections, resolve disagreements and get through stressful times. Helpful for families that are traditional, blended or LGBTQ or for sub-sets in families like fathers & daughters, mothers and sons, adult siblings or in-laws.

Helping you find wholeness...
124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016
When there are difficulties in our family, they tend to also affect other areas of our lives. With everyone participating (or just the couple if that is the prime area of the situation), it is possible to move to better ways of working together as a family. When this is done, you will find that your family again becomes the rock on which everything is built, allowing you to experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher will guide your family as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.
