A lot of who we are today as adults comes from our families of origins. Even when we are conscious about the not so good areas and set great intentions to not repeat patterns, we see where what we claimed we wouldn't do or be seems to pop up without our noticing. In family work, whether together or individually, we go backwards to go forward to figure out who and how you want and choose to show up moving forward. You can't change what you were given but you can work on deciding on how you show up in your future.

A family is a complex system, with a great many dynamics. Add to that how parents bring their past, history, childhood, and emotional baggage into the parenting of their own children. It can feel overwhelming: where do you start. But parenting and running a family can be amazing and healing. You can succeed in raising happy, successful children, while also working through the left over issues of your own childhood. You can be stronger as a result of your family of origin experiences, and create the family life you dream of and will be proud of. Get clear on the goals of parenting – independent and confident children, with life skills and emotional tools. Enjoy your family again.

Water & Stone, a Creative Arts Therapy PLLC, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT, LCPAT

Founder & Director

155 Water Street, Brooklyn, New York

People entering into family therapy can often benefit from finding new ways to communicate or exist in the same space as each other. It's a challenge that is made easier with creative arts therapy, which brings in alternative ways to express, communicate, and reflect. At Water & Stone the therapist working with the family will help focus on the specific issue that brings everyone into a session while also exploring deeper connections, patterns, and relationships that might need attention and healing as well. Since there are multiple therapists available it is also possible for individuals to see their own therapist within the same practice when that is of interest.

Johannes Marselis, LCSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist

26 Court St., Brooklyn, New York

Each of you has a role being played out in your family - and possibly not the obvious one you imagine. I take a 'structuralist' approach to family therapy - looking at what is taking place between members rather than to individuals. We will explore these events/relationships and work on changing patterns of interaction that on one hand have developed in your family, but on the other are likely continuations of patterns played out before, perhaps for generations. These can change - and it is usually for everyone's benefit.

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.

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

44 East 12 Street, New York, New York

In working with families and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

207 East 15th Street, New York, New York

My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.

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

Priska Imberti, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

46-10 61st. Street, Woodside, New York

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.

Family Therapist

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York

When there are difficulties in our family, they tend to also affect other areas of our lives. With everyone participating (or just the couple if that is the prime area of the situation), it is possible to move to better ways of working together as a family. When this is done, you will find that your family again becomes the rock on which everything is built, allowing you to experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher will guide your family as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

Our family system, both past and present and cultural traditions have a great influence on us individually and in our relations to others. We will focus on issues of communication, boundaries, parenting of children and teens, rules, behavior in and out of the home, effects of divorce, remarriage, blending step families, and life transitions.
