FAMILY EDUCATION ABOUT DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE Addiction not only affects the patient, but also those who love them. Retreat’s Family Education Program is designed to educate loved ones about the disease of addiction and the dynamics it creates. The goal is to facilitate and promote healthy communication skills that will lead to regaining trust and healing relationships through the process of treatment and recovery. Attendance will be scheduled through the Primary Therapist. Once family members have attended the Family Education Program, a family session may be scheduled with the Primary Therapist.

The "Family Crucible" as coined by the late Carl Whitaker, can be the greatest source of strength in our lives or it can be a source of pain. Our families of origin are always part of us for the rest of our lives. Family therapy helps us to discover who we are and who we want to become as a differentiated person apart from my family. It helps us to grow up and take responsibility for our own lives apart from family influence allowing us to make decisions about our lives, our relationships, and our decisions in general. As a Family Therapist I help people distinguish between healthy and unhealthy families and guide them in their quest for the healthy family they so desire.

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.

Carol has counseled and provided consultation to many families with special needs children. Her services included working with children with autism, learning disabilities, tourette's syndrome, central auditory processing disorder and gifted. Parenting a special needs child can be challenging. There are times when families need assistance with home or school issues. Counseling can be beneficial, and help not only the parents, but the entire family. I also offer consultation regarding IEP's and GIEP's. Tom also provides family therapy, and his specialty area is adjudicated youth, and adolescent issues, co-parenting and families in crisis.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
168 West Ridge Pike, Suite 208, Limerick, Pennsylvania 19468
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.

Marriage and Family Therapist
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.

Oftentimes, one person will be identified as the problem in a family system, but, oftentimes, they are simply the one who has been showing the symptoms of the dysfunction in the family, rather than themselves having an individual issue. Families can address this by sitting down and talking with each other, with an impartial third party, to discover what is happening within the family and what can be done to fix it.
