Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

Originally trained as a family therapist at the Family Institute of Cambridge, Mass., I have evolved as an experienced family therapist. I believe that family therapy is generally the treatment of choice in resolving issues and preventing the problem from going to the next generation. It is useful to see an entire family but can also be beneficial if parts of a family will work together to overcome communication problems, resentments, and misunderstandings that can tear families apart. Family therapy is very helpful to resolving conflicts of adult children after a parent has died. It can also be useful with young children, siblings, as well as teenagers, middle-aged people and older adults.

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.

Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

In family counseling family members develop healthy ways of communicating and responding to one another to create and establish an atmosphere of trust and emotional safety. Family members learn to identify their own needs, increase sensitivity to the needs of others and interact in ways that build trust. Family counseling is conducted in an atmosphere of respect and dignity for all.

I teach family members a skill called the Intentional Dialogue to help improve family communication. Often family members don't feel heard, that what they say matters, understood and that others know what they are feeling. The Intentional Dialogue allows each family member to share their 'side of the story' in a safe environment without fearing being judged or criticized. When this happens family members start to work as a team rather than be adversarial.

We have our closest, longest-lasting, and most complicated relationships with family. When there is divorce, remarriage, addiction, mental illness or other dysfunction it can become even more complicated. With my Family Systems perspective I can help you understand how your family helped to form the person that you are, and help you untangle yourself from the dysfunction and heal the relationships that are important to you.

Steven Sussman, Ph.D

Licensed NJ & NY Psychologist

615 Sherwood Pkwy, Mountainside, NJ, New Jersey

I always include parent(s) in all sessions so they can learn how to bring out the best in their children. I reach, teach, educate and motivate children to value and respect their parents. When children show gratitude not attitude it is much easier for parents to praise and show love rather than yelling, punishing, and restricting their children. The resulting harmonious relations improve the atmosphere of the entire household and the benefits extend to siblings.

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

236 West High Street, Bound Brook, New Jersey

Family problems affect everyone in the family-from the oldest down to the youngest family member. Working with as few as two family members, I can help you and your family resolve conflict, emotional cut-offs, and negative communication patterns. Long term unresolved issues often create present day conflict and misunderstandings that affect everyone in the family. Therapy can help uncover and resolve those issues as well as work through the current family issues.

It is always important to work with families when working with children. Through the use of family therapy, communication between family members is enhanced and conflicts are better resolved. Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and bring you closer together.

I am a licensed family therapist and teach family therapy. I used to do individual work with children. I don't anymore because in 30 plus years working with families I have found that family therapy is more effective. Children and teenagers respond to the patterns in their families. Whatever problems children are having, dysfunctional family patterns will make them worse, and parents, and families in general, can have more positive impact on their children than a therapist can. Family therapy can also be useful with adult issues. We all have relationships with spouses, siblings, and parents that continue into adulthood,. A therapist can help families to maximize strengths and shift patterns

Family Therapist

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

307 President Street, Brooklyn, New York

Family life is a multi-layered experience for each person. No two family members experience family life, or the relationships within the family, in exactly the same way. For this reason, family therapy is a very active, dynamic process. Although several family members may see me initially to explain what they think is problematic, I like to see the entire family together as soon as possible. My work with families focuses on helping each person explain their needs and hear how others in the family feel hurt and misunderstood. Reducing the stress and conflict within the family is the purpose of learning in sessions how to communicate clearly.
