Family Therapy: Individuals are best understood through their relationships to their entire family. The problematic relationships in a household are seen in the context of the family members’ expressions in that unit, as any change in one member can affect the whole family. An individual’s symptoms are just an indication of relational patterns and by using a systemic perspective I change the system in order to change the individual’s issues. By the way that each family functions, subconsciously, certain roles get assigned to each member and each individual acts accordingly to fulfill the part. Through changing the dysfunctional patterns and releasing the individual from the assigned role I promote more functional interactions, which results in more personal freedom and peace. A healthy family is the core of our community and every child deserves a stable emotional environment.

Group Therapy: In group therapy usually 4 to 8 individuals meet every week with a trained licensed therapist to discuss and resolve a similar and or related conflict.
Interpersonal concerns such as intimacy, anger, assertiveness, trust, isolation, and loss can be worked through a group that provides opportunities for personal growth. The reactions to each other in a group replicate the real life experiences and under the watchful eye of an experienced group therapist the group members learn new ways of interaction and dealing with people in their life.Since group is a social microcosm, the group members learn to communicate in a more open and authentic way, and become less fearful about the impact on other people when they are honest — even with expression of angry emotions. When a member witnesses the impact of his/her behavior on others and gets feedback from the group, the relationships become more intimate or assertive.In a group setting experiences of loss, envy, longing, and desire for intimacy can be identified. At the same time group therapy reaffirms that you are not alone in the world; you feel connected and get support, empathy and validation from people who have shared similar experiences.Dr. Daniel Sadigh is a clinical mental health professional who has met nationally accepted criteria of education, training and experience in group psychotherapy.
