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.

Oftentimes, one person will be identified as the problem in a family system, but, oftentimes, they are simply the one who has been showing the symptoms of the dysfunction in the family, rather than themselves having an individual issue. Families can address this by sitting down and talking with each other, with an impartial third party, to discover what is happening within the family and what can be done to fix it.
