Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Have you ever noticed how one person's problem in the family affects everyone? This is true in all families, even the Brady Bunch! One of the reasons this occurs is because our reactions to each other often serve to "keep the problem, the problem". Working together as a family in counseling gets people off the blame-game and on to ways of relating that bring the respect back. As a specialist in family systems counseling and clinical author in professional literature I enjoy working with families of all ages in a variety of interactive/experiential methods to help family members learn how to communicate and connect. The end result is increased harmony and productivity.

Our belief is that families are the soil from which people grow. Families are the place where so much of who we are is formed. We work closely with families to help them understand their patterns and how they came to be the way they are. We provide a safe place for families to come and look at how they can be better and most effectively deal with the unique challenges they face. Family therapy requires very specific and detailed skill set that can only be acquired through specific training. All of us are trained in family therapy and how to best nurture change, taking into account each family's unique needs and challenges.

Our understanding of families and desire for how families should function stem from our earliest expereinces within our own families. Sometimes these expereinces don't fit the new relationships we enter into and new rules and roles need to be developed. These evolving understandings of family will explore areas of communication, conflict managment, emotional support, resolving differences, and strengthening internal intimacy maps.

I work with a lot of adolescents struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Family involvement is an important component of their treatment, as adolescence is a challenging developmental period to navigate. Adolescent clients often feel misunderstood and isolated in their experiences, so communication is an important factor in alleviating these feelings.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

I grew up in a family too. What is it with this most necessary unit of human existence that makes it so problematic? Why can't we speak our truth to the people we ought to be closest to? I call it the Law of Inverse Emotional Risk (LIER). We are most likely to hide the truth from people whose love we most fear losing. In working with families, I have found that, at the root of most of their problems are secrets, unexpressed feelings, resentments, and blame. How do you talk about such things? There is a way. It has four steps: Take responsibility - Admit the past - Live together - Keep it going; TALK for short. If you want to learn it, call me, email me, come see me. You get a free first session and I will tell you all about it.

Life is complicated. It is hard to create and maintain healthy relationships with those we love the most. There are many different thoughts and feelings, from the past and present, that exist in all of our interactions with one another. It isn’t always simple, whether we are trying to effectively communicate feelings, establish rules for the household, navigate the waters of intimacy, guide our children toward a successful future or simply attempting to provide a healthy meal while working, studying, and cleaning. The world and our family lives are increasingly more complex. Though we all have the tools within ourselves and within our relationships to create thelives we want. Through our psychotherapy approaches whether parenting coaching, couples or...(view profile to read more)

The family is the most important institution in society and I take great pleasure in helping a family to resolve their issues and move towards health and happiness. I understand as the mother of 4 children myself what the pressures there are for families. We are in a bad ecoonomy now and many families face economic uncertainty and stress. My focus in family therapy is to build cohesiveness and resiliance.

Family Counselor

Dene Stamas, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of La Grange, IL

In family therapy I will see all the members of the family. The typical family will have the parent(s) and the children. In the first session I ask every member in the family what do they perceive as the family problems or issues. There are guidelines and rules so communication can be open and safe. My major goal is to have the family identify and deal with the family issues. Initially I will see the family weekly or biweekly.

Family Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within Driving Distance of La Grange, IL

I have utilized family therapy with families experiencing substance abuse and/or divorce. I encourage family members to respect the views of other family members, even if they do not agree with them. I may suggest that family members change roles during therapy sessions, for an enhanced understanding of the views of other family members, although I do not have an expectation that this will lead to their agreeing with that family member. I encourage respect between family members. So, it would then follow that I discourage family members from name calling and/or labeling the behaviors of other family members. My goal is to increase their understanding and acceptance of each other.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Grange, IL

You might seek family therapy in response to a stressful event or situation such as death of a loved one, divorce, a change in family structure, problems with one of the children, or perhaps you are having problems communicating. Collaboration among family members is an important goal of family therapy, as is improvement in connection, improved communication, and a mindset of problem solving rather than blaming one individual in the family.

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 life can feel like an incredible joy or a life draining prison. But did you know that in either case, families operate within an emotional system that has predictable patterns you can discover and observe? It's true, Family Systems Theory offers you the tools you need to understand the role you're aware and unaware of and how the other members of your family are responding to you. Family therapy at the Sprout Family Clinic, isn't about blaming; it's about growing. Growing the ability to be clear about who you are and what are your limits, strengthen your ability to control yourself, better own your actions, and become more able to withstand some discomfort for growth.
