Family therapy can be highly effective for conflict resolution, healing relationships, and making clear agreements that work for everyone. Many families feel more connected during, as well as after, effective counseling. Family therapy is a safe place for each family member to express their views and experience without judgement. It is important to discuss the issues that "nobody talks about" and this enables each family member to be more authentic within their family as well as in other relationships (i.e., work, school, etc.).

Whether you are a new family dealing with marital issues and toddlerhood, or a blended family with teens, or a middle-aged child of an aging parent, you have the need for tools and understanding of the dynamics you are dealing with. We offer couples and families empathic support that helps sort out the conflicts and needs of each member of the family. Sometimes it may seem that one family member is the problem. What we find oftentimes, is that each one has a part to play. Simply having a skilled facilitator helps bring the difficulties into a new light of understanding. We use Non-violent Communication, art therapies, and somatic methods to support healing and resolution

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.

Families are likes systems, an amazing cause and affect dynamic that is continuous. Families are like mobiles, you move one part and the rest of the pieces move. When you can understand how physics plays out in families you discover how you can learn to change patterns, and this is dependent upon all family members learning to communicate more openly, honestly, and effectively with each other. Yet for this to happen it is most important for parents to have this established first before it can be expected of children to follow suite.

Many times when things are not working with one family member it is actually a whole family problem. I work with whole family to uncover the hidden dynamics, problem interactions and underlying issues that are causing stress within the family. I am strategic in my approach to family therapy and give families tools they can use when they are not in my office.

Families can create some of the most beautiful moments in our lives, and also some of the worse. There is nothing like having that special connection with those we love; knowing we have a soft place to land in the world. Yet, sometimes we hurt, or are hurt, by the ones we love the most, and walls get put up. I help families to get back to a place of respectful communication and connection, having boundaries that keep everyone feeling safer and happier. I also help families get through the hurt, and to resolve a variety of family problems: fighting, parenting, blended families, divorce. I would be happy to join you and your family on your healing journey.

My approach to family therapy includes all members who want to participate in therapy with the hopes of enhancing the current family structure. Through assessment, communication ,and authenticity, the therapeutic relationship strives to create a safe framework for the family. Once safety standards are set, the family can explore the nuances that need to change and to participate in accomplishing goals.

Anna Dasbach, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Monte Sereno, CA

As a family therapist, trained in the modality of family systems, I work with the entire family and sometimes will see individual members, couples, the children, the teens and then bring all family members back together for joint sessions, depending on what will serve all the most at any given times. Often times families need to regain the trust and remember their love for one another which can be achieved through family sessions in which every one has a chance to speak honestly, respectfully and to be truly heard in a safe and comfortable environment with the help of a skilled therapist.

Our family can be one of our greatest resource. Yet when things go badly, it can stress us terrible. Divorce can be especially difficult for families. Children may be acting out with cutting their arms or legs. Teens may be missing school without permission. Dad may drink too much. Choosing a family therapist can be difficult. You probably want someone you can trust to help you and also support you. Also, it is important to find someone who all the family members feel is fair and caring. This can be a difficult balance to strike for a therapist. Selecting a family therapist that works well with your family can make a big difference. Often, we go to a therapist during transitions like loss, moving, a child starting school, or a new step...(view profile to read more)

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.

Psychotherapist

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.

Families are where the heart is. Everyone desires to belong to a loving, close-knit family. However, close knit families don't just happen. It takes work to know how to effectively enjoy each other and yet be independent and be appreciated and accepted for who you are in your family. When you feel secure and loved in your family, you can survive most anything the world dishes out to you. Coming to family counseling can help you learn how to develop and maintain healthy relationships and greater communication skills with those you love most--your greatest treasure.
