COUPLES and FAMILY THERAPY
Couples often become stuck in repetitive patterns of conflict and coping. Dr. Stack brings family systems theory and psychoanalytic ideas to her work with couples and families to elucidate these patterns and to understand the role that each person's history plays in his/her part of the problem. Carolyn Stack helps couples and families understand how an individual's feelings and behavior contribute to a static deleterious cycle; she provides instruction on changing behaviors in concert with others. Carolyn is comfortable working with heterosexual, gay and lesbian family configurations.
Dr. Stack also provides brief mediation work for couples transitioning out of a relationship.
When she works with adolescents and young adults Dr. Stack meets with the individual and their parents as needed. She also works with adolescent and adult sibling groups.
