Courageous Living Counseling, 22 N. Price Street, POTTSTOWN, Pennsylvania 19464 | 610-909-1569

What family doesn't have challenges that are stressful, disappointing, confusing, and often lead to feelings of hopelessness? I offer a safe place for family members to come together and begin the discussion of making life better. Utilizing a family systems approach, I can help you better clarify roles and expectations and develop better communication skills. Helping family members honestly talk about differences and develop skills to build healthy family relationships is possible and an essential reason I am dedicated to family counseling.

Families come in all forms especially in our changing times. The stresses of life show up in our families lives. Families change over time. Dealing with young children is different than a family with teenagers or no children at all. We need to negotiate these changes in our families. At REACH Counseling we believe in the strength of families and helping families to communicate and connect at a deeper level. We specialize in exploring what intergenerational patterns are affecting your family, how you may be dealing with transitions and how you can make your family strong.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

168 West Ridge Pike, Suite 208, Limerick, Pennsylvania 19468 | 610-308-4523

As a trained Marriage & Family Therapist and a mother of two, I can help you to navigate the challenges of marriage and parenting. Simply put, we all want to be loved and accepted for who we are. What family does not wish this for everyone involved? Unfortunately, as a result of day to day stressors, ineffective communication, learned defensive behaviors, and a simple lack of know-how, families can fail to accomplish this simple task for one another. Therapy can turn this cycle around by allowing family members to rediscover each other's perspectives and true selves, replacing conflict and misunderstanding, with harmony and compassion.

Carol has counseled and provided consultation to many families with special needs children. Her services included working with children with autism, learning disabilities, tourette's syndrome, central auditory processing disorder and gifted. Parenting a special needs child can be challenging. There are times when families need assistance with home or school issues. Counseling can be beneficial, and help not only the parents, but the entire family. I also offer consultation regarding IEP's and GIEP's. Tom also provides family therapy, and his specialty area is adjudicated youth, and adolescent issues, co-parenting and families in crisis.

Licensed Social Worker

Landisville, Pennsylvania 17538 | (717) 742-0501

I cannot imagine a family out there that does not want to be happy. But life happens. Things can become dysfunctional as family members come and go (planned or unexpectedly), structure and hierarchy change, illness strikes, conflict escalates, addiction is discovered, careers are earned and lost, and communication comes to a standstill. Through mutually agreed upon ground rules, therapy will be the place for each family member to share their experience without fear of retribution and to have the opportunity to be heard without interruption. Then, through a variety of strategies, we work together to reorganize the family's energies and move towards a positive outcome.

Licensed Professional Counselor

175 Strafford Avenue, Suite 360, Wayne, Pennsylvania 19087 | 484-467-1156

Family therapy can be a place where all members of a family are safe to discuss their concerns. It is also a place where you can hear each other in new and surprising ways. Being willing to hear, understand and respond to the surprising feelings behind the anger or withdrawal that blocks closeness in your family can set the stage for more cooperation, compromise and a new strategy for interacting without hurt. I will help you do the work of connecting emotionally and strategizing about new ways to cope with old problems. Call me for an appointment to discuss your family's particular difficulties. As a therapist, a wife, and a mother of teenagers, I bring professional and personal resources.

Many individual problems become understandable if we understand more about how the person functions within his or her family. Without that understanding, it is often difficult for the person to change or feel better. Family therapy creates an opportunity to "change the rules" within the family, and change old habits that lead to unhappiness. This approach to therapy is particularly effective in helping children, and helpful in helping parents become more successful caregivers.
