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.

One individual alone can be extremely complex and difficult to understand. What happens when you have a number of complex people living together under one roof? Absolute chaos! Through family therapy, I help family members to understand each other better and even more importantly, to appreciate how each individual contributes to the family dynamic. Individuals evolve and change overtime and in turn, the family system experiences dramatic shifts as well. This can often be confusing! With the help of a family therapist, your family does not need to struggle alone. A patient and gentle objective listener can educate, guide, and assist you in overcoming

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

The family is the crucible from which we all emerge, for good and for bad. Family extends back generations, and we are influenced, one way or another, by everyone that came before us. We inherit genetic tendencies and traits, learn ways of acting, thinking, feeling and relating, and we grow our own unique self within a group of oddball people we call our family. We have a roll and function within this family, a roll that helps form our personality. Again, for good and for bad. Family therapy is about bringing into awareness the dynamic nature of the relationships in the family, and to make more conscious decisions about how to negotiate the multitude of issues.

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.

During sessions, the family will have a chance to share how your addiction has affected their lives. Additionally, family members will learn more about how they can be supportive for their loved one. We’ll provide your loved ones with connections to community resources to have access to additionally.

No safer place. No better time. Because family is not an organization but an organism, when one part is hurting or out of sorts, the entire organism is affected. It's easy to play the blame game, and attempt to segment off a family member's issue from the lives of the others. Like it or not, we are all connected, and all have a part in the health and solution of the problem or trouble. I can help you come together to use the collective resources of each family member to benefit the whole, and help with the healing. Family is perhaps the greatest shaper of our identity and values, and therefore is worth the investment and priority to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible.

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Milton / Alpharetta, with more than 20 years experience, I understand the dynamics of how the actions, feelings and moods of one individual within a family can negatively affect all members of that larger group. In family therapy, I use a number of techniques, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy, to help the affected person deal with his/her issues with the support of other family members who come to understand the situations that drive the problem and how to help the individual cope with them. For Family Therapy to work best, it is important to have the cooperation, attentiveness and willingness of all members of the family. If you believe your family may benefit from open and honest...(view profile to read more)

I counsel couples, children and their families through their life journeys. There are many transitions a family goes through in their journey: Pre-marital couple; newly married; a family with a newborn or children of various ages; a family divorcing or remarrying; single parenthood; mental illness; career changes; empty-nesters; retirees; adult caregivers of their parents; grieving the loss of a loved one. Whichever stage you and your family are in, I am equipped to guide you through these life transitions to make the adjustment to them smooth and healthy.

Family is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.

Family is like an ecosystem. Each part interacts with the other and each part plays a unique role. There are rules, whether explicit or implicit, that are to be followed. Not all these rules may be healthy. We grow up in a family, and most times, join another in our adult lives. What we were trained to do in our original family, and what others were trained to do in theirs, comes out in our present relationships. I work with families where they are. I consider all the above when teaming up with family. So I address the individuals, the group, the past and the present with an aim toward a healthier future.

A family is a dynamic system, often seen as an entity in and of itself with various parts. Each individual in the family is also a part of the family system. Some therapists provide counseling for families by having the entire family present in each session in order to work with the dynamic as a whole. Sometimes therapists will work with members of the family separately or in pairs depending on the issues that are presented. At Thrive Counseling, we take a prescriptive approach and structure the format of the sessions around what that unique family needs. At the base for working with families is a goal of using activities that facilitate a shift in the dynamics within the family, introducing new....

1585 Old Norcross Road, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046 | 404-275-6646

I have many parents that bring their child to me and in essence say "please fix my child". It usually involves the entire family working together to fix the problem that is showing, which is typically through the child. The child is really saying "please help me and my family" with their behavior. Family Systems Theory supports this belief and I have seen it work with people that are willing to make positive changes dozens and maybe even hundreds of times.

Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, every individual will only be as successful as the weakest part of their life. In this way, the relationship health within the family plays a key role in the happiness and success of each individual. Family therapy benefits each individual by improving interactions and relationships for everyone. This can be especially useful when facing depression, substance abuse, divorce, grief, chronic illness and even food issues or everyday issues such as communication, conflict or behavioral problems. Some emotional pain is as much a part of the family as a whole as it is to the individual and thus is best addressed in family therapy.
