Licensed Marriage, Family and Individual Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

Family therapy is needed when the family isn't working well. Maybe there are a lot of fights between parents and children or maybe one of the family members is using drugs or alcohol. Family therapy is a place where the whole family can talk about what is bothering them. Sometimes people want more closeness and sometimes family members want more distance. Family therapy is a great way to identify and sort out these issues.

George Brisse, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

As a marriage and family therapist, much of my work involves exploring family dynamics and relationships. Families are complex social systems that contain structure, communication, roles, and rules. Finding ways to get all the parts to work well together is rarely an easy task. In my previous work, I've found success in helping families better manage conflict, deal effectively with anger, communicate more consistently and openly, and better implement and enforce rules. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding how I may be able to help your family's specific problems and concerns.

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

There are many problems that can occur in our family relationships. it's very easy for conflict to occur in marriage, with children, family of origin, or even in-laws. As a therapist working with families for many years I've found that many problems can be solved through respectful communication of deeper feelings while developing greater understanding and appreciation of other family members. At the same time, there are some family situations with extremely difficult, defensive personalities that only create continued frustration, so that the best solution is to set clear boundaries for limiting the impact of such toxic personalities.

I have considerable experience working with families. I have worked with small children, tweens, teens and parents. I believe that a combination of individual and family therapy is an approach that works. We will work together to overcome the issues you and your family are going through. Understanding you’re not alone and getting support to help problem solve and learn communication skills is a step forward. We will take the time to move out of the chaos into a more authoritative environment. Authoritative is a blending of a caring tone with structure and consistent limit setting. Together we can make it work!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

Family dysregulation can leave all family members in a state of despair and hopelessness. Chronic conflicts can take joy out of life and make both parents and children feel like they are failing in their essential life tasks. My combination of doctoral family therapy education and experience in working with families from all walks of life has enabled me to witness many families overcome long standing patterns of conflict and rediscover warmth and harmony in their relationships. Though specific therapeutic steps are unique for every family, I found that the general spirit of care and good will for one another can help people overcome even the seemingly insurmountable conflicts.

Family Counselor

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

My training is in Marriage and Family Therapy. In a nutshell, this means that I believe that the family that you grew up in, and the relationship patterns and rules that affected your family, have a profound impact on who you are today. For instance, how did your family deal with conflict? Were they stand off-ish or affectionate? Critical or nurturing? Where you allowed to fail in your family? Were you accepted for being you? All of these questions help us explore your past and how it relates to your life in the present. It also helps guide you in creating goals, and changing what isn’t working effectively for you in your life right now.

Family Counselor

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Relationship and Sex Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Shorewood, MN

As children we learn how relationships work from our families. Families have subtle and not-so-subtle rules about how to treat each other that get passed down from generation to generation. When these patterns result in hurt and misunderstanding, family therapy is an opportunity for change. If you're uncomfortable with how you feel in your family, or how you act with family members or loved ones, reflecting on the patterns you've learned and connecting with your emotions will help you choose how to relate, instead of being in reactive mode. I create a safe place where family members have the opportunity to learn to express needs and support each other in healthy ways.

Family therapy is highly effective for depression, addictions, anxiety, unresolved grief, ADHD, coping with health problems, and parenting problems for all kinds of childhood and adolescent problems. My approach to family therapy involves helping a family to communicate and listen more effectively, better manage feelings, learn to better negotiate, effectively set limits, develop problem-solving skills, reduce stress as well as increase cohesion in your family. Family therapy often uses homework assignments to help the family practice the skills that are taught in the session. My approach is low key, supportive and focuses on practical things that family member can do resolve problems.

In family therapy, you will learn how to communicate so that others will listen and how to listen so that others will talk. I will be very involved in the session - stopping family members when they are being mean or rude and encouraging when someone's opinion or feelings have not been heard. There are no taboo subjects and everyone in the room will be respected.
