About Rebecca Kane
I am a therapist with extensive training in child/marriage and family therapy, in additiion to twelve years of therapeutic work with many populations within New York City. I am and have been for the last twelve years, extremely interested in the well-being of children of this great city. I have found most every type of issue and problem within the bounds of the family and therefore, the confines of my private office. Being part of a family is a joy, but always a great challenge. I utilize a multi-theoretical basis for children and for their families. Art, play-acting, use of materials, and the creative force of the unconscious , give way to the problems, and the answers that these young people are searching for - a way to express themselves, to be truly heard and appreciated for whatever they bring to the world. Most importantly, the child discovers what is going on inside of him/her. Their stories depict their feelings, behaviors and relationships . I mirror back to them with empathy, insight and compassion. The child begins to appreciate her/himself , to trust that I might hold their pain or difficulties and then to find the true self and the love for themselves. This work paves the way for anyone seeking to find their way out of their difficulties. This is quite a process for the child and for the family that is so engaged in their struggles. The extraordinary news is that it works!
In family therapy I work on a problem-solving basis, utilizing aspects of behavioral and insight therapy. You will begin to see results that you have been hopng for or creating new adventures with your family you didn't think possible You and your family will begin to:
1. Learn communication skills in ways that members have found it very difficult to talk to each other
2. Strengthen the bonds between parents in a practical and spritual sense on all levels of issues
