Family Therapist

Laurie Friedman Donze, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

784-B Shelton Road, Crownsville, Maryland

When I work with adolescents or young adults living at home, I involve the parents in therapy, as well as other family members as needed. I will meet with one or both parents as part of the initial evaluation, to obtain a history of the client's life and difficulties, as well as a family history of psychiatric illness and substance abuse. Throughout treatment, I will meet again with the parents as needed, to discuss their concerns about their child and to offer practical suggestions to reduce conflict and help the client with his/her issues. If desired by the client, we may have one or more conjoint sessions with the child and one or both parents.

I work with families to encourage connections and also communication. Sometimes, these break down just due to business and the role of technology. Family time needs to become a priority once again. Offenses that have not been forgotten or forgiven need to be processed. Boundaries also need to be established, particularly between parents and children.

When working with children, I believe that the family has to be involved and invested in the therapeutic process in order to make the necessary changes. One family members concerns can lead to problems in the whole family. My main goal when working with families is determine what every members' goal of therapy is and see how we can bridge the differences and come to a common goal that satisfies all family members.

When I see the family, I ask each one how they view the situation and how it affects them and the whole family. With parenting issues, I will see the child or teen alone and then the parents. I teach parents ways of listening to each other and understanding where each one is coming from. Once they validate each other, I help them problem solve using possible strategies with their child or young adult. These strategies will depend on the issue whether their child is experiencing symptoms of hyperactivity, addictions, learning processing difficulties, acting out in a new blended family, etc. Then I bring the family together for the parents to set limits on the child or young adult.

Family Therapist

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP

Licensed Psychologist

5560 Sterrett Pl. #205, Columbia, Maryland

A family is a living organism, and when one member is in pain or confusion the whole family unit is part of that pain or confusion--sometimes as part of the cause, and always as a potential part of the cure. I offer families help in seeing how family members may contribute to each other's suffering and, more importantly, how they can help each other reduce the suffering.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Collaborative Counseling, LLC, 744 Dulaney Valley Road, STE 7, Towson, Maryland

We are all relational beings, living within interactive, interpersonal systems. How we relate to our most significant others (spouse, children, parents, etc.) can sometimes lapse into unpleasant scripts, patterns and powerful undercurrents of action-reaction, negative group-think, and ineffective authority structures. Restoring and sustaining a sense of effective functioning, wellness and harmony (shalom) within family relationships can be aided by engaging the services of a professional counselor with a family systems approach. I use my skills and training to help family members learn and practice better ways to empathize, communicate, resolve conflicts, and collaborate with each other.

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.

When people feel heard, everything changes. Thus, if a family can create an atmosphere in which every voice has its place, a great shift can occur in which the atmosphere changes from defensive to expansive, from reactionary to benevolent, from frustrated to fulfilled. Sure, change is hard, but it is also rewarding, and miraculous. There cannot be a more rewarding experience than seeing family members discover just how warm and supportive a place the family can be.

Family Therapist

Laurel Fay, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

8720 Georgia Avenue, Suite 308, Silver Spring, Maryland

Did you know that not everyone who claims to practice family therapy was actually trained in family therapy? It's true. Only licensed marriage and family therapists are specifically trained to deal with the complex issues that can arise in families. Not surprising - you know your own family and how complicated it can be! It takes a therapist with experience and training to know how to balance the needs and wants of each family member, all while making sure everyone is heard and understood. Add to that the difficult tasks of helping the family as a whole achieve its goals for better communication and closer relationships, and it's clear it takes a professional to make lasting changes for you.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Sometimes family members find it very difficult to communicate with each other. Adolescents may offer challenges that the family finds overwhelming. Parents may be sandwiched between grandparents and their children. One member of the family may have a mental illness that causes a lot of stress. There are many reasons why a family requests family therapy. This therapy may be short term. It can include all members of the family or some members of the family. I help the family develop skills they can use to improve relationships and move through stressful times.

Licensed Therapist

I love it when I have the opportunity to work with multiple family members because I get a chance to see rather than hearing about interaction styles and that gives me a chance to help a family try something different. Many times we get stuck in how we interact with a particular family member - perhaps you feel that a parent still treats you like a child well into your adult years. Or perhaps you feel like an emotional teenager every time you get into a power struggle with your child. I help families figure out how to "grow up" in their communication and build cooperation so that family time can be enjoyable instead of stressful.

As you learn more about yourselves as a family, you will also begin to better understand yourselves as individuals and a collective unit. You can identify your own needs and learn how to express them more honestly and respectfully. You can become a stronger and happier family, while increasing understanding and love for your family. Although you may be feeling hopeless right now, with guided support and a willingness to change, itis possible to re-build your family dynamics and have it be even better than it was before.
