Do thoughts get stuck in your brain and its hard to get them to stop? Sometimes the worries lead to actions that keep repeating for no good reason but it may feel like it is preventing something bad from happening. Sometimes the actions repeat until "I feel just right."

Welcome to The Cohen Center....Are you overly stressed? Suffering anxiety, panic attacks, or ADD/ADHD symptoms? Perhaps you are struggling with insomnia or depression. These symptoms are easily treatable, sometimes requiring medication. Are you ready to take the next step? Are you willing to see if medication, ideally, combined with therapy, can enhance your life? You will be monitored closely, so that you do not needlessly experience side effects, and that optimal treatment gains are obtained. Careful attention will be focused on any physical illnesses. Often, this approach leads to a more appropriate diagnosis and plan of treatment.

I am both a certified psychiatric mental health NP since 2018, and board certified family nurse practitioner since 2006.
I service adult and children treating multiple mental and physical health illnesses. My focus is a bio-psycho-social, holistic, natural approach to health and wellness. I am also a certified health coach. Many desire an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat their illnesses since they have experienced bad side effects, know someone who has, or knows someone who died while being treated with pharmaceutical agents. Individuals fear potential harmful negative outcomes. This is where I come in. I offer an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat acute and chronic conditions focusing on genetics, diet, environmental, and social factors.

Family Therapy Psychiatrists

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
