Family Therapist

Licensed Professional Counselor

129 Park St. NE Suite C., Vienna, Virginia

Families have as many dynamics as there are members. Each family has its own system to handle life's challenges. Sometimes, some of these systems do not operate effectively. The goal of family therapy is to help families understand the systems used, how they are not helping, and learn new skills to better equip the family to provide a safe and secure home for all to thrive

Carlos Durana, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Professional Counselor

11417 Tanbark Dr. , Reston, Virginia

The focus of my family therapy work is the family as a whole. Working on the relationship between family members is more effective than just treating the person that is supposed to be in need of treatment. From my perspective, family therapy work sees individuals in relationships to others. As a result, the attention shifts from the symptomatic individual and problem is seen as the family as a whole. The goal of my family therapy work is to help establish a “functional family” – one in which needs and the desired goals of closeness, identity, self-expression, and meaning are met.

Typically, family therapy will bring the entire family together in therapy sessions. However, it may be that individuals in the family also see the therapist alone. There may also be times when individuals who are not a member of the family (such as a teacher or school counselor) participate in a therapy session with the family if their participation would be of benefit to the family. We can help your family learn how to better solve problems and how to better express thoughts and feelings. In family therapy, family members will learn about family roles and rules. Family members will examine behavior patterns and learn to identify issues that cause conflict.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

457-B Carlisle Drive #202, Herndon, Virginia

Family relationships are hard and demanding and frustrating. We strive for peace and harmony in our homes and often find ourselves angry, in tears and feeling powerless. I work with nuclear families, blended families and adoptive families who are living in chaos. I educate parents on setting appropriate limits and boundaries and STICKING TO THEM while also teaching kids how to have respect, follow rules as well as having an appropriate voice and getting their needs met. You WILL see positive results; bringing structure and balance into the home is the bare minimum you will experience, when you find yourselves laughing together as a family, you will know you have arrived.

Family Therapist

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia

I approach families from a Family Systems and Structural Family perspectives, in that I view differentiation and adaptable yet present boundaries among family members and extended family members as a healthy family approach. I collaborate with the client family, including all members, to identify goals and process strengths and observed issues. I view the couple subsystem as the priority on the family hierarchy, the parent and/or caregiving subsystem as second, and child or sibling subsystem as third. I assess and evaluate internal, external, and multi-generational triangle, patterns, alignments, and rules which impact the client family.

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia

If your family is experiencing conflict and misunderstanding, I can help. By sitting down together, learning to listen to one another and allowing me to help you sort out your differences, you can begin to relate to one another in a new way. My goal is to provide a calm and safe environment where each family member expresses his or her point of view and conflicts are resolved through understanding and consensus.

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia

In family therapy I meet with any number of family members together as a way to build understanding between family members and resolve conflicts that may exist. This tends to be a very active and dynamic interaction where each member is given the opportunity to express their views and concerns in a neutral environment. I, in turn provide feedback and help to clarify the issues.

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.

Family Therapist

Athena Staik, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

12866 Harbor Drive, Woodbridge, Virginia

Free and open expression of thoughts and feelings is a hallmark of healthy family relationships. When members of a family feel safe to be themselves and express their thoughts and upsetting feelings, relationships flourish. Reactivity is common in family relationships. It simply says that your brain has activated your body's fight-flee-or-freeze system. A relational approach to healing family relationships focuses on forming quality connections in which each member feels they can express themselves and give from a place of love rather than fear, and non judgment allows each to grow in a supportive context.
