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.

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.

Raising our children is one of the most important things that we will ever do in life. How they turn out, how life goes for them, whether they experience joy and happiness because of their inner strength and resources, or struggle with life because of inadequate coping skills is largely in our hands. Many adults have had hundreds, if not thousands of hours of training for their profession, yet when we become parents there is virtually no training available for what most people agree is one of the most important jobs on the planet: being a parent.

Carolyn Hudson, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Dimas, CA

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my education, training, and experience has had an emphasis on the family system. When working with families, a focus on the structure of the family, roles, rules, boundaries, and communication are areas included in our work together. Families of origin, extended families, and blended families can participate in family therapy and I find it beneficial when we can include all involved so everyone has a voice.

If you meet with us, we will begin therapy working with the adults to better understand their perception of the problems. Then we will work to help the adults gain insight into their part of the family dysfunction. Once those patterns change usually the children or teens respond favorably to the changes and often the acting out behaviors can be resolved fairly quickly.

Family Therapy is often the most beneficial when there is a family conflict or crises. Examples of family conflict are a recent divorce or separation, sibling rivalry, arguments over a living trust or will and discussing end-of-life issues. One of the most difficult situations for families to adjust to is blending families. If you have been married before and going into a second marriage with your own children, it brings a whole new set of problems . Examples of a family crises is death of a loved one, a family member of loved one getting a serious illness, or a family member going through a trauma like physical or sexual abuse, being severely bullied, victim of a crime or the like.
