Family Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

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.

Working with the entire or part of the family is always helpful in changing and improving family dynamics. When you're family comes in you will all get a chance to speak without interruption. We will improve your listening skills and your communication skills using I statements, like "I feel_____ when you________, I need for you to __________. "Using I statements helps the other person to hear what you're saying and care about your feelings while feeling less attacked than if you had said, "You always________ and I can't stand it." When working with teens it's always best to include the family. This results in more permanent changes. Bring your family in and we'll resolve your issues.

Each member of your family has an important role that affects how your family functions. Sometimes it seems that even one person can cause most of the problems that a family experiences. Other families it may be hard to identify the cause of stress. In any case family issues can affect each individual in a powerful way causing anxiety, feelings of powerlessness, frustration and even hopelessness. Counseling can get at the root of the probllem(s) and provide affective strategies that will help your family communicate better, support and even appreciate each other more!

Family therapy sessions aim to strengthen all members of the family so they can work out problems together. Often, if one family member is identified as having an illness, the cause can be traced back to a larger family problem. If the person with the illness is treated while the rest of the family does not change, then the symptoms will persist. Family therapy breaks these cycles by teaching everyone to better interact with one another.

Families are the places where we should find the love and support to face the world and all its challenges. However, sometimes families loose their way due to poor communication and misunderstandings , anger, acting out behaviors, hurt feelings and lack of knowledge. Maya Angelou has said: "People do what they know; when they know better, they do better." My plan for families is to help them know better so they can do better. Where there is loving-kindness and a will to make change the future seems brighter.

Our struggles are not formed, nor do they persist, in a vacuum. Particularly when working with young children, it is often important to work with the family as a unit to create systemic changes which will support lasting change. This make take the shape of helping to facilitate difficult parent - teen communication, change interaction patterns between parents and children to support changes in all family members, or involving the family in supporting one member's recovery from a traumatic experience. Whatever your goal is for your family, please call to discuss how family therapy with me may benefit you.

As someone trained in family therapy, I see each family member as part of a team. Sometimes, one member is in pain and acting out. The whole family will then feel the effect. I love my work with families to help them get unstuck and see the growth. For the children / teens, family counseling can help sort through the acting out (or acting in sometimes) and help them more appropriately express their needs and wants. I can help!

"I love my family enough to bring them here. As a family, we need help." Many of my clients are families who need support and guidance to help them through a difficult season in their family life. Frequent conflicts, feeling distant, and wanting to talk openly and honestly within the security and privacy of my therapy office are typical reasons families come to me for Family Therapy. As a Family-Systems Therapist, I help families explore how their relationships can be transformed through openness to a new way of communicating and relating to one another. If your family could benefit from support and guidance, call me today at (626) 272-4908. I look forward to connecting with you.

I work with alleviating trauma through working with individuals, couples, and families that are affected by trauma. I work with them to transform personal stories focused on the pains and effects of the trauma to a narrative focused on newly formed self-identity, and life meaning. Working with children and teens poses a special challenge for therapists and families because trauma can show up in a variety of ways. Children can be angry, scream, cry and yell at parents, peers, and even teachers. Children can talk back, refuse to do chores, and may even regress to earlier developmental stages (baby talking, thumb sucking, etc.). My goal is to help families manage trauma symptoms.
