We come from a systems approach when working with families. We teach family members how to communicate more effectively with one another. There is an emphasis on personal responsibility and each family member looking at how their behavior is contributing to the problems. Building empathy between family members is also a main focus for us when working with families. We strive for families to leave sessions feeling more connected and understood by each other with the tools to be more successful in their communications. We do family therapy both in the office and in homes.

Helping you find wholeness...

When there are difficulties in our family, they tend to also affect other areas of our lives. With everyone participating (or just the couple if that is the prime area of the situation), it is possible to move to better ways of working together as a family. When this is done, you will find that your family again becomes the rock on which everything is built, allowing you to experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher will guide your family as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

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. Contact us for an innovative neuroscience solution to family dysfunction. Kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.

This is an area of expertise for me. I trained to be a family therapist at the oldest family therapy training institute in the country, The Ackerman institute for the Family. I work very well with most age groups in the family and you will be delighted with the expedited improvement in your family. It pays to see someone who actually works with families on a consistent basis and can yield very positive results.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Family therapy is a safe place to learn healthy patterns of behavior. You will learn how to effectively and lovingly communicate, provide true emotional support and respect, and create an environment that nurtures the success of all family members. An emphasis is placed on collaboratively building a new or different family life, as well as collectively establishing goals. A component to family therapy may be parenting issues, which significantly challenge the individual and the couple. You learn parenting skills from your family of origin and repeat them, regardless of how healthful or toxic they are. Family therapy focuses on teaching the skills needed to confidently work as a team

Many emotional problems that appear concentrated within one individual often have an impact on other --or even all--members of the family. Working with either the entire family or with selected members can help to sort out the factors that contribute to the problem and hold it in place. Often making a change in one individual or in one aspect of interpersonal behavior can shift and re-structure the family dynamics. As a result, family members whose functioning has been seriously impaired may find themselves able to change their customary roles and thereby experience a new-found sense of autonomy.
