Family Therapy

Julie Klamon LMFT, Family Therapist located in Agoura Hills, CA

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with families to address the difficulties and conflicts that can arise in their relationships. In family therapy, I help navigate various issues, including sibling relationships, parenting issues, blended families, family communication issues, family conflict, and extended family dynamics.

I also work with families to help them cope with transitions like divorce, including assisting with co-parenting, managing teen behavioral issues, and addressing addiction and substance use. My mission is to help families form solid and positive bonds and deal with life's challenges in healthy and constructive ways. I am here to help you whether you are dealing with the difficulties of divorce or want to improve your family relationships.

Family Therapy And Divorce

Working with Children During a Divorce

Children may feel confused, angry, and even responsible for their parents' separation during a divorce. Providing them with a safe and accepting environment where they can process their emotions and learn coping skills to help them get through this difficult time is critical.

In family therapy sessions, I work with children to:

  • Understand that the divorce is not their fault
  • Process their emotions in a healthy and productive way
  • Learn coping skills to help them manage their emotions and navigate the changes in their family structure

Assisting Parents in Co-Parenting

Divorce can often lead to strained relationships and communication between parents. To establish a positive co-parenting relationship, I work with parents to improve their communication, conflict resolution, and interpersonal relationship skills.

Effective co-parenting involves finding ways to communicate and work together as a team to meet your children's needs. This may include setting boundaries, finding ways to co-parent between two households, and being flexible to meet your family's needs.

A strong co-parenting relationship can give children the love and support they need during this difficult time, making them feel heard and cared for by both parents. It can also help to lessen the negative impact of the divorce on your children and improve their overall well-being and mental health.
