Understanding your family, understanding the roles each family member plays as well as what your role is within your family can be some of the best work a person can do in order to be a more cohesive family unit. Most families struggle with how to make their families work in a more cohesive and harmonious manner. It takes work but it is well worth the investment.

Research shows trying to just “fix the kid” does not generally work. The family should be involved if at all possible. I made it a special point to learn the specific strategies and techniques for this population as I went through my schooling. To this day I have approx. one decade of experience in working with this population, and I look forward to continuing to work with children of all ages, particularly with family involvement.

I have worked with families in a variety of clinical settings and from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Every family is different and every member holds different roles. In family therapy it is essential to work with families on breaking maladaptive patterns, begin to truly listen to one another and to provide them with the tools to create healthy environments in their own home. My approach with family therapy is to join with the members in a open, safe and non-judgmental environment to help provide insight, support and new strategies for all types of life's challenges.

family therapy and family systems is truly my specialty. A family history of drinking alcohol for example is important for the client to be aware of in regards to their potential to become alcoholics. Also, patterns of anger, divorce, and abuse can be passed on from generation to generation, and it is important for the client to become aware and identify patterns verbally with the therapist to process and acknowledge these patterns for future generations. I also invite family members to be part of the session, as long as this is agreed upon by the client.
