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.

Families quite often are going through various changes simultaneously, some more impacting than others. Babies are born, family members get married and may bring new families with them, siblings move away, and parents get older. I like to work with families and support them as they navigate and manage these changes, and continue to redefine their relationships with one another.

I use the belief that our family relationships determine to a significant extent our ability to form healthy relationships. We each carry ways that limit is in intimate relationship based on adaptations that are unconscious, and powerfully limit flexibility. I work to free individuals, and couples from these family patterns that keep us stuck.

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.

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. Contact me to discuss how counseling can work for you

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.

Family therapy is working with the system, or the people who are present within the area of the problem. Even though a problem may be presented in one member, all members are being affected by the problem. It is the system that needs to be altered or taught how to work on communication, or interacting differently with each other. This can alter the problem. When one person changes, everyone changes.
