Family Counselor

Donald Hall, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

It has been said that " people do what they know how to do, and when it doesn't work, they do more of it." If your family is "stuck" in repetitive negative and unhealthy patterns, I will work with you to identify these patterns and help you move forward as a family toward positive and more loving ways of living with each other. Family systems and developmental theories about life-cycle stages guide my work with families. These approaches are also appropriate for families making post-divorce adjustments and especially for launching adolescents.

Family relationships can be complicated and confusing. With family counseling I provide a safe environment for each member to express their perspective and feelings. I help each member of the family to recognize and understand the roles and rules that exist within their family. I will teach skills and we will do exercises to create empathy and understanding for all members. Roles and rules will be re-arranged, kept, eliminated and/or altered in order to create a healthier, safer and more nurturing family environment.

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Family therapy is often the treatment of choice for families who are confronted with specific crisis situations, (such as death, divorce, illness, or child/adolescent issues). When the family is the client, I assess the way members interact and work to improve communication and problem-solving skills, as well as resolve the current life stressors. Each family member plays a role in the way the family interacts and is seen as a vital participant in both the healthy and dysfunctional styles of interaction. Therefore, in family counseling the goal is to assist each member to work together more effectively to create a more functional family unit.

Family Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Daryl Temkin

Ph.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Family counseling is a most valuable opportunity for helping families in crisis as well as families who may be going through a life transition. Families can become socially, emotionally and psychologically dangerous, confusing, and even internally devastating. Families that are experiencing dysfunctional changes including addictions, emotional and mental illness, abandonment, fierce arguments, new family members, departing family members, new family rules, power relationships and family power changes that happen in an unprepared manner can create emotional traumas of significant proportions. Family counseling serves to restructure a families operation and aims to transform family dysfunction to family function.

Family Counselor

Donna Carollo, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe in Systems Theory - which regards family relationships as an important factor in psychological health. I believe that regardless of the origin of the problem, clients benefit when the whole family participates in therapy. This school of thought adheres to the idea that no individual in the family is the "problem" - although he/she can often be viewed as the scapegoat in the family. "Fixing" an individual without addressing the dynamics and rules of the wider family system is not helpful for the long term well-being of the individual or the familial relationships.

Family Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

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 Counselor

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

All families develop their own unique 'dance' that is hard to discern when you are a participant. The dance steps started in our own family of origin and get recreated in our current families. Often there is an 'identified patient' that acts out what isn't processed within the family system. By entering the family system as a professional attuned to what healthy dynamics look like, I can help transform a limping, depleting family system into one that has vitality and encourages each family member to thrive and grow.

Family Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Family Counselor

Colleen Young, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

My approach to treating families begins by understanding & observing how the family functions as a unit rather than focus on individual problems which arise when this is not occurring. Families face more challenges than ever before in this fast-paced world which praises achievement and success over unity. I am passionate about families and consider it a privilege to work alongside them.
