When people feel heard, everything changes. Thus, if a family can create an atmosphere in which every voice has its place, a great shift can occur in which the atmosphere changes from defensive to expansive, from reactionary to benevolent, from frustrated to fulfilled. Sure, change is hard, but it is also rewarding, and miraculous. There cannot be a more rewarding experience than seeing family members discover just how warm and supportive a place the family can be.

We are all relational beings, living within interactive, interpersonal systems. How we relate to our most significant others (spouse, children, parents, etc.) can sometimes lapse into unpleasant scripts, patterns and powerful undercurrents of action-reaction, negative group-think, and ineffective authority structures. Restoring and sustaining a sense of effective functioning, wellness and harmony (shalom) within family relationships can be aided by engaging the services of a professional counselor with a family systems approach. I use my skills and training to help family members learn and practice better ways to empathize, communicate, resolve conflicts, and collaborate with each other.

When working with children, I believe that the family has to be involved and invested in the therapeutic process in order to make the necessary changes. One family members concerns can lead to problems in the whole family. My main goal when working with families is determine what every members' goal of therapy is and see how we can bridge the differences and come to a common goal that satisfies all family members.

Families are systems made up of individuals much like the transmission in your car. If a gear is damaged, it wears on the other parts. If you only replace the damaged gear, the other parts will soon wear the new gear into the shape of the old. Family therapy produces long lasting changes because it rebuilds the whole system instead of just fixing one part!

When I see the family, I ask each one how they view the situation and how it affects them and the whole family. With parenting issues, I will see the child or teen alone and then the parents. I teach parents ways of listening to each other and understanding where each one is coming from. Once they validate each other, I help them problem solve using possible strategies with their child or young adult. These strategies will depend on the issue whether their child is experiencing symptoms of hyperactivity, addictions, learning processing difficulties, acting out in a new blended family, etc. Then I bring the family together for the parents to set limits on the child or young adult.

A family is a living organism, and when one member is in pain or confusion the whole family unit is part of that pain or confusion--sometimes as part of the cause, and always as a potential part of the cure. I offer families help in seeing how family members may contribute to each other's suffering and, more importantly, how they can help each other reduce the suffering.

I work with families to encourage connections and also communication. Sometimes, these break down just due to business and the role of technology. Family time needs to become a priority once again. Offenses that have not been forgotten or forgiven need to be processed. Boundaries also need to be established, particularly between parents and children.

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.
