Yes, family therapy can be fun. Family therapy can include a time for talking and exploring, it can include time for group projects in order to see how you work (or don't work) as a unit, and sometimes it includes fun activities such as art or games. Family therapy can include parents, children, siblings, and in-laws (and whoever else you feel may be important to the problems). Often if there is a problem with a child, the problem is bigger than the child. I work with birth families, blended families and adoptive families.

Family therapy is helpful in understanding your family unit. Understanding each member of the family as having roll, responsibility and expectation is the beginning of the process of understanding what works and does not work within your family unit. Working with the family from this starting point, will hopefully open the door to improved communication among each family member.

I have found in my many years of experience that many emotional issues and dysfunctional patterns occur in the context of the family system. In our family therapy sessions, we understand the presenting issues through the lens of the family. What are the relationships and connections that provide the foundation for a particular behavior? What is the secondary benefit of a particular behavior? Many behavior patterns and issues can be improved by working through the family.

Family systems was the theory and leading force behind my clinical training. Using family systems theory my focus and theory is derived from Murray Bowen. We will create a family genogram where I will gain pertinent information to how your family operates. How were arguments resolved? How do family members communicate? We will explore what your family role is. What is your sibling position? How do you currently communicate? Do you communicate? These are some of the ways I begin to explore my work with families.

When one person in the family is plagued by a problem, it disrupts the whole system. Feeling disruptions in the family is difficult and may be the reason family therapy is the right choice for you. I believe that by providing family therapy, the family can learn to live more cohesively and talk to one another, not at each other. A good family therapist is one to help put the pieces back together after things have fallen apart. I listen to family members individually and as a whole to hear what the problem is from their perspective and treat it accordingly. Getting family therapy may be the best decision of your lives.

My clinical approach to Family Therapy begins with an evaluation to determine and understand the issues within the family context. It is the goal of therapy to provide a safe environment for family members to express their concerns about the family dynamic. It is at the beginning of therapy that treatment goals are determined. Emotional needs for each family member will be explored. Treatment consists of teaching conflict resolution and communication skills to help family members be able to address conflict more productively and with less distress. My clinical approach consists of instilling insight for families about the relational dynamic within the family.

Family Counselor

Jo Ellen Fletcher, M.A.,LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Family therapy is about communication and safety in the family system. Balanced family leadership requires the ability to be firm, and friendly, and to set developmentally appropriate limits while remaining fair, flexible, and encouraging. In balanced families, individuality and connection to the family are both significant. Family processes can be cooperative, consistent, and caring. My humanistic approach is in presenting with “realness” and joining the family in their discussions to understand the issues at hand. My goal is towards unmasking issues and creating new meanings for the family. Often the spontaneous reactions to the present situation in the therapy room create the client’s awareness of their inner potentials and opens the channels of...(view profile to read more)

Families are complicated machines. There are many parts, all of which must work in unison and balance with one another. When this balance is disrupted because one or more family members are having an issue or a hard time, the entire machine (family) stops functioning optimally. Like any machine would, your family may need a "tune up" at that time. You must relearn how to function at your best.

Family Counselor

Jean Powers, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Psychotherapist, Individual & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Canoga Park, CA

We need our families. If your family is in danger of disconnecting or falling apart, let's work together to lean toward each other instead of away. No one family member is ever the cause of disfunction. We each must learn our responsibility in the mix. My approach to healing families is to help each member understand how they absorb stress, and explain it to the group in a way that will be heard. Our family is our home base. Let's keep it that way by learning empathy for each other's struggles.
