A Few Testimonials
about resolving or dissolving

Here at Conscious Counseling, we believe that everyone has the right to be heard in a calm, and productive setting. If you have made the decision to resolve concerns and improve your marriage you have come to the right place. For couples and families who feel its best to dissolve the marriage, you have also come to the right place.
Conscious Counseling provides both services in order to preserve families as best as possible.
The benefit to you, your partner and family is this… as a family psychotherapist as well as a trained mediator
my position is always to maintain neutrality  and fairness. You can bet on that!

We understand relationships are challenging and can use help from time to time. Couples who seek us to assist in their conflicts, know they need a third party to hear both sides without judgement but to listen to both partner’s stories and experiences.
When a couple takes the step to seek guidance and clarity here in our office, respect for the relationship is the first goal I make before we begin. I know it took courage to make the appointment and show up. Therefore, what you bring me and the work we do together is valuable and taken seriously.

And then there are couples who feel that separation is the best decision for themselves and their family.  Mediating is an option  for  couples who wish to preserve the family and the finances. Although this can be a difficult time, the treatment involved at Conscious Counseling is meant to help you go through your divorce with a healing perspective. While the process of  a separation and divorce may be painful, we believe that there is an opportunity for each party to heal, process and grow emotionally. For some individuals CRISIS is the same as OPPORTUNITY.
With our clinical skills and  coaching we get you and your family to an emotionally secure mental state.

Conscious Counseling offers services for RESOLVE to keep families emotional healthy.

In order to RESOLVE, couples learn tools to communicate, learn how to fight fair and not to win or lose. Finding the path toward love and friendship again will bring excitement and connection.
Our treatment method is known as Systems theory, training from the world re known Ackerman Institute For Families and Couples.
located in New York City

Systems theory states that the system itself is more significant than all of the individual parts that comprise it. Two systems theories allow the ability for a family to adapt to their environment, the first being morphostasis, meaning “changing to adapt or adapting to change,” and the second, morphogenesis, which is the family’s ability to grow and change for the better because of internal or external environmental conditions. Additionally, a system has feedback loops from the individuals and others that modify and create the system.

In a family system, the system refers to the family unit, though it can have smaller systems, sometimes referred to as subsystems. These might be the parents, brothers and sisters, stepchildren, or any extended family currently living with the nuclear family unit. Additionally, there is both negative and positive feedback in the family dynamic and applying systems theory.

  • Negative feedback loops are expectations and communication that do not offer change
  • Positive feedback loops offer change

Boundaries are another component of communication and interaction within the family. Boundaries have to do with both how information exits and enters the family. For example, some information may be held only inside the family, while others may be shared with non-family members. Boundaries on information can be tied to the expectations set by the family leaders, such as the parents or caretakers.

Additionally, homeostasis argues that family members always try to obtain a balance within their interactions; systems theory can also be thought of in terms of homeostasis and teamwork in a work environment. If a team works very efficiently and accomplishes many tasks, they have achieved a state of homeostasis. However, if the team is easily disrupted by distractions or is inefficient, they have not achieved homeostasis. Adaptation is how a family readjusts to anything that changes within the environment of the family unit.

Systems theory was created because of the effect behaviorism had on psychology. It addresses the weakness of mechanistic approaches and provides an excellent framework to solve problems because it analyzes the interdependence and wholeness of the system.
Understanding how the system works also lends itself to also carefully shifting the systems when it chooses to separate and morph into another system when on spouse moves away from the family home.
