About Ronald B. Cohen, MDDistinctive among psychiatrists, Dr. Cohen works with individuals and couples in the context of their nuclear and extended family relationships in a process that can be more timely and less costly than treatment with multiple individual therapists for multiple family members. Working with the whole family is both healing and protective of future generations as they develop secure emotional attachments, well-being and an enhanced quality of life.

As a consultant specialist, Dr. Cohen provides clinical supervision, and confers with individual therapists and other healthcare professionals and organizations to help them consider how adding family therapy sessions to the treatment program is both restorative and proactive as improvement is long lasting.

“If you are experiencing family relationship problems or a difficult life-cycle transition, don’t treat all therapists alike. Look for a Therapeutic Family Systems Coach who has had specific training, is comfortable with emotional intensity and will offer clear direction to help resolve identified problems and interpersonal distress. Working with families is a challenging craft that takes a long time to master and few have received the kind of education, experience and savvy guidance necessary to deal with the range of tough issues families can present.

The lives of our children and our children’s children are deeply affected by how we live our lives. Multigenerational Family Healing helps improve human relationships and solve major complex, challenging family life problems in less time and with less expense than multiple individual therapies. Healing current relationships avoids leaving a damaging legacy for our descendants.”
