Marriage and Family Therapist

1620 Lee Hill Road, Suite 7, Boulder, CO 80304

Family Counseling has been given its own field of study for a good reason- they are hard! Families are a unique and distinct challenge~ How much have you learned and gown in your own life only to return to your family system & rubber band right back where you started? I work with Family Systems to untangle the knots & investigate the struggles you and your loved ones might be stuck in. The beauty is that when one person shifts into health, then entire family unit shifts too, & vise-versa. Families are complex & dynamic, & therapy can offer a deep powerful shift with life-long lasting healing benefits. Real connection & understanding become your reality rather than mere wishful thinking.

Howard Lambert, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Middlefork Road, Boulder, CO 80302

Often one member of a family carries and acts out the hidden issues that lie beneath the surface of family life. Children often unconsciously inherit the unresolved problems that have not adequately been dealt with by their parents. Blended families make the situation even harder to understand. I can help you diagnose and deal with the issues behind the difficult behaviors that you see in one or more of your family members. Families are strongest when people can count on each other to be there for one another and open discussions lead to health behavior changes.

Family Counselor

Marilee Snyder, LCSW, DCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

75 Manhattan Dr., Boulder, CO 80303

I have been practicing child and family therapy for over 20 years as a licensed clinical social worker. I began my practice with culturally diverse families in Chicago -- in homes, schools, community agencies, health clinics (including specialized teen, women's, and GLBTQ clinics), places of worship, hospitals, courts and juvenile facilities, and my own private practice. I use many therapeutic modalities, combining general systems, structural, strategic, Ericksonian, Rogerian, Bowenian, psychodynamic, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, play and filial therapy, cognitive behavioral, advocacy, and psychoeducation. Jargon is great, but what I do, works! And I love this work.

Family Counselor

Joe Soma, MA, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2769 Iris Ave, Suite 114, Boulder, CO 80540

When working with a family, I treat the entire family as the client. The family is a system, and all parts of the system assume roles, adhere to stated and unstated rules that seek to keep a dysfunctional system in place. All parts of the system need to be heard, and all parts of the system hold wisdom. Core components I utilize are a) self awareness, b) listening, and c) speaking... in that order! I also seek to respect the culture of each family that I see, listening and learning myself the nature of the cultural, and multi-generational traditions of that family. I see all manner of families without judgment regarding the makeup of that family.

Family Counselor

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Boulder, CO

Feel your family is dysfunctional? Most families are. I will provide a space in which everyone is heard and respected. I will look at the whole family as a unit and help you develop new strategies for interactions as a family. I will also look at how each memeber of the family relates to the other members and help you develop new ways of responding and communicating. No member of the family will be left out as we build a stronger family unit.

Family Counselor

Bill Frea, Ph.D., BCBA

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Boulder, CO

The struggles that families face are diverse. My approach to family therapy focuses on the interactions, communication, and behavioral patterns between each family member. I view the family as a complex system, but also as an intricate set of behaviors that can change with understanding and support. I take a practical approach to assessing these behaviors and designing treatments that benefit the family. I also recommend individual therapy when necessary.

Family Counselor

Kathryn McGuirk, LCSW, CACII, EMDR

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addictions Counselor

100 Arapahoe, suite #12, Boulder, CO 80302

Although I primarily work with individuals, there are times when it is necessary to have family members join our sessions. Often times, the focus is to help facilitate communication barriers, address past issues or help them better understand what you are going through in order for your family to best support you. I utilize a family systems approach looking at the various roles and dynamics of a family- however you define them.

Family Counselor

Celeste Labadie, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

2769 Iris Ave. Ste. 108, Boulder, CO 80304

Families are our home base. Our source for meaning. Our source for understanding the world and ourselves. When there is tension, chaos or misunderstandings in the family, the entire structure is unbalanced. Our world seems lopsided or heavy. Often one family member becomes the target or the reason why something is out of balance. But when we look a little deeper or become more curious, the interconnectedness of the entire family can show us the opportunities for healthy change that can right the family equilibrium. Using Family Genogram work to illustrate the dynamics present and how they formed, each member can clearly find and utilize solutions that dramatically benefit the family.
