An interactive family therapy approach is utilized to engage all the family members regardless of age. The family will explore their interactions with each other as well as how each family member reacts in their own way to family stressors. The family will then create a plan in regard to how the family can create change in the the household to enhance the family environment.

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.

I work with parents and family members of children with developmental delays. It is hard enough to raise a child in this day and age. The stress and conflict associated with caring for a child with special needs can be devastating and overwhelming if you do not have the support and tools you need. Know that you are not alone. One in five children are diagnosed with ASD and it seems that almost everyone has a family member or friend touched by special needs issues. I am here to help whether it be working through feelings, venting, managing difficult issues or behaviors with your children or navigating the difficult systems that are in place to get them the services they need.

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

As a family therapist, I evaluate functioning within a client’s systems of interaction: the family, school, work and community environments. I will often invite family members into the room to nurture change and development with the goal of improving relationships. My objective is to influence conversations in a way that accentuates the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider system to initiate change and ultimately improve functioning.

A family is a system. When one member of the system is experiencing something, he/she will, affect the other members of the family. Family therapy needs to be done right. It is a delicate balancing act--making sure each member is feeling heard and supported, but also to have the members acknowledge that each plays a role in promoting positive change. Open minds, open hearts are required for this to work.
