Families are complicated machines. There are many parts, all of which must work in unison and balance with one another. When this balance is disrupted because one or more family members are having an issue or a hard time, the entire machine (family) stops functioning optimally. Like any machine would, your family may need a "tune up" at that time. You must relearn how to function at your best.

One of the ways we know who we are, is in the context of our relationships with other people. Of all the relationships that we have, it is the ones with our families that most impact us. Sometimes family members forget how to communicate in loving and supportive ways. Often times there are subjects that are too hard to talk about. Silence is often in the place of healthy discussions. I believe that the home should be the safest place for everyone to express themselves. Let me help your family learn how to keep each other emotionally safe and to get to know each other on a deeper level. Call for an appt.

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Sherman Oaks, CA

In doing family therapy I try to work with all members of the family so that I can understand the dynamics, the rules and roles, the relationships that are not permitting the family to function in a healthy way. Even when it seems to be just one person who has a problem, it may be the whole family that is interacting in ways that can be improved. I work to have the family understand what is really going on and changes they may need to make to function in healthier ways. I focus on the need for respectful communication and cooperation between all family members, including children. My Parenting Classes focus on specific skills to achieve calmer homes with respectful and respected children.

Family Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Sherman Oaks, 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.

A family is a unit composed of several individuals, that form its dynamic, communication style, interaction, needs and desires, and sometimes these ‘clash’ or do not go hand in hand or in great harmony, to say the least! When working with families it is important to know that each person and each family is unique and has its own style, challenges and differences in character and personality. Our primary aim will be to explore, with each of you, as well as together, the concerns and challenges and guide you to create a more harmonious and balanced family relationships.

Family Counselor

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Sherman Oaks, CA

To me, the people with whom you've chosen closeness, whether related by blood or intentional bonding, are "family." I help family members surmount problems in communication, understanding, decision-making, and boundary setting. I have also worked successfully with family businesses, or business groups that are "family-like," when dynamics become problematic. Sometimes, longstanding patterns or roles need to be addressed and adjusted. Some members may feel unheard, under-appreciated, or discounted, and need a chance to re-establish their sense of belonging within the group. I'm honored to have been part of creating family therapy breakthroughs that truly change peoples lives.

To my mind, nothing is more important than supporting families in raising emotionally healthy children. In our fast-paced, high-anxiety culture, it can be hard for parents to know how best to create a nurturing environment for their children. I encourage parents to spend both quality and quantity time with their kids, to set and hold limits so that the children feel safe and secure and to resolve parental conflicts to that they don't contribute to family tension. Sometimes I work with the parents alone (not the children) and this can be quite effective. At other times it helps to bring in the entire family to observe and change family dynamics.

Lindsey Rosenthal, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Psychotherapist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Sherman Oaks, CA

Families are complex and dynamic entities. Often, different family members get pigeonholed into one specific identity which is pathologizing & limiting, and does not serve them. Family systems teach us how to behave in the world. Dysfunction in families can be very harmful and can set people up to feel doomed. Luckily, there is help. In family therapy sessions we will create an atmosphere of openness and non judgment. Through identifying, and actively working through issues, balance and harmony can emerge.
