Family Counselor

Sue Passalacqua, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of South El Monte, CA

Working with families is extremely rewarding and requires a therapist to be able to manage multiple perspectives, a variety of feelings and behaviors while creating a safe and supportive environment for every family member. My role is to facilitate a fair and open space for each family member to share their thoughts and feelings about a variety of issues. Enhancing the manner in which families resolve confict is key to my treatment and intervention. Communication skills and conflict resolution are all part of this process. Each family is unique and it requires from me a cultural and gender sensitivity and understanding.

Family Counselor

Kristin Martinez, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of South El Monte, CA

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.

"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.

Although most therapists in California have a license in Marriage and Family Counseling, most of those therapists don’t actually do family counseling. Because we have over 25 therapists at the La Vie Counseling Center we have a wide range of specialties, and one of them is family counseling. We have therapists who are equipped to work with your entire family to open lines of communication, set better boundaries and restructure relationships that have needed change for years. If your family needs help, give us a call and one of our family therapists will start the process of change that is long overdue.

Many times families need help to deal with struggles between them, or to get through difficult circumstances. Each relationship within a family is different from all others, and may need specific opportunities to express thoughts and feelings. Supportive and encouraging therapy may be just what is needed to remove blocks between family members so that the love can flow again.

Family Counselor

Verdant Oak Behavioral Health, Psy.D. and Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of South El Monte, CA

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.

Many of our struggles are not just individually focused; they are shaped by and affect the family system around us. I have a passion for helping family relationships heal in places where they are broken, and thrive in places that are stagnant. I especially love journeying with parents and their children, strengthening bonds and decreasing family conflict. My training has predominantly been in family psychology, and I love to watch families transform together -- as individuals and as whole units.
