My work with families is from an attachment based focus meaning that problems within the family system may reflect unaddressed attachment disruptions in an earlier generation that unknowingly get perpetuated in the current generation. Disordered attachment, trauma or other adversity experiened but not addressed in childhood can result in problematic ways of perceiving and interpreting a family member's behavior resulting in conflict and perpetuation of dysfunctional, maladaptive relationships. Within a safe, collaborative, nonjudgemental environment, I help family members recognize, understand and resolve sources of conflict.

We all have different family members that have influenced who we are and even how we interact with others. We learn so much from our families which influence our behaviors in daily life and with others (friends, relationships, co-workers). In therapy, we will discuss family systems by doing genogram work. Genograms are maps of your family of origin. We will discuss that there are certain patterns of behavior in your family that could be passed down from one generation to the next. We will explore how those negative patterns could be affecting your daily functioning.

Addiction is a family disease and Recovery for an individual is strengthened when a family enters recovery together. While I do not specialize in family therapy, I am a trained and certified interventionist and can help families work together to encourage one member to seek treatment.

With my experience in my Rabbinical work, and my practice, I will mediate all family issues, and quickly address all components that require attention. I have had tremendous success with family therapy, in which the family attends a session and through my therapy method, are able to reveal their inner emotions. I have counseled many families in my office, and have saved entire families from falling apart.

Families have many challenges in these times. I have experience with issues ranging from divorce, to medical illnesses, to traumatic family experiences. I have years of experience as an adolescent therapist, on an inpatient and an outpatient level. I have specific experience with the family dynamics of aging and dementia. This can be a challenging issue, but with the right strategies you can succeed.

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.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.
