Family Therapist

Marty Tashman, Ph.D.(psychology), ACSW, M.S.W.

Dr. Marty

622 -624 Valley Road, Uppper Montclair, New Jersey

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Family Therapist

Konstantin Lukin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

223 Bloomfield Street, suite 107, Hoboken, New Jersey

Families are complicated. Each person in a family plays his or her own role, and the way each person behaves when the whole family is together is not necessarily the same as when they are apart. At the Lukin Center, we use emotionally focused therapy to help families understand the complex dynamics among all family members and to help each individual in the group feel heard, supported, and understood.

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

244 5th Ave. Suite 9G, New York, New York

When a family doesn’t work well together there’s little peace, contentment or fun at home. I work with families to help identify the non-working dynamics that may be repetitively occurring and causing ruptures and resentments. Family therapy can help strengthen the resiliency of a family after a crisis, as well as break long-standing destructive patterns. Sessions allow for everyone’s voice to be heard and often include defining each individual’s role and responsibility.

Family Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Manhattan, New York

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.

Through proven, practical techniques, I can help you work through the stress, anger and conflict that arises from issues that can prevent you from fully enjoying time with your family.

Family Therapist

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York

I focus on specific relationships , rather than the entire family. Like I do in couples work, I would see the two of you both together and individually. I evaluate these cases carefully to make sure that I would be able to be of service to both of you. Usually whatever is going wrong has a long history, and we will unravel that. It may take a bit of time, but can be done if you are willing and patient.

Family Therapist

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

New York, New York

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Family Therapist

Lois Horowitz, Ph.D, LCSW

Psychotherapist

London Terrace Gardens/ Chelsea/ West 23rd Street, New York, New York

Family Therapy is not only for people with small children. I specialize in helping adult members of families to improve their communication and resolve conflicts. The goal is to teach family members skills to work through their long standing dysfunctional patterns, to deepen their family connections, and to facilitate the healing process. I work with both gay and straight families. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

Family Therapist

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, New York

I was trained in Minuchin Family Therapy with Jorge Colapinto during the 1980's at the Community Center for Mental Health in Dumont, New Jersey, where I worked with family members of the severely mentally ill population. I've been providing family and couples therapy since that time, either with individual families or in a multi-family group format. Structural Family Therapy identifies the maladaptive communication and behavioral patterns within the family structure. Sometimes changing just one dynamic among family members can increase adaptive functioning, communication, and relationships. My degrees are: MA in psychology, MS in clinical social work, and PhD in social work.
