Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

I help families have fun again! I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other. Family members find that they can “open-up” and start a dialogue that will help re-build their confidence, love & respect for one another. Together, we will discuss and gain insight into communication patterns, the family’s hierarchy and whether appropriate boundaries exist. Does the entire family attend sessions each week? It all depends; I may ask to see sub-sets within the family one week, or the entire family the next. The goal is always to help the family have less conflict and more connection.

Your family is the center of your world. When there is sadness or conflict within your family it is difficult to feel good about life. I want to help your family heal and grow. As a family therapist I help individuals and couples overcome life's challenges including divorce or affairs. Marriage counseling can help you learn to communicate more effectively and to feel closer and more connected to your spouse. Many families have challenges. With commitment and patience we can work to overcome the challenges in your family. We can restore the passion and affection that you once shared. I know this is not easy. But your family is worth the effort. Love grows here.

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

Many families face challenges at one time or another. When functioning well, families can work through these issues together and come out stronge. At times, however, families experience challenges that are difficult to resolve by themselves. For example: conflicts between parents and adolescent children, coping with illness of a family memeber, father/mother relationship with their children, or helping elderly parents. As a clinician I work jointly with members of families and extended families to help your family develop the tools to overcome these challenges together, to strengthen your relationships with one another, and to create a supportive environment for all.
