Family Therapy usually consists of learning healthy ways to communicate so that problem solving becomes much easier. In my practice, I have been able to help family members improve their understanding of one another by simply offering helpful strategies that have been researched over time and have been founded to be helpful. Family members learn that if things are not going well within the family dynamics that it is not only important but healthy to get help from a professional so that they learn skills to communicate with one another better. Parents learn ways to model healthy communication patterns with their children and their children will model these same patterns in the future.

Families work best when everyone functions in his and her proper role. This means that parents need to be in charge, children need to know what is expected of them and to be given increasing freedom as they move through adolescence, and grandparents need to be "honored" in an advisory (only) role. When grandparents meddle or disempower parents or when children are in charge, problems arise.

Families provide a unique complexity of dynamics and relationships. Different personalities, families of origin and opinions/perspectives often lead to conflict among two or more members within the family. While there may be one "identified client", it is important to work together as a system to make changes and grow. I work with families on communication skills, conflict resolution and becoming more aware of how their behaviors effect others around them.

Families sometimes get stuck in ways of relating that are hurtful. When looking at a family, I first understand the stage of development they are at. A young couple with young children is not the same as older couple with teenagers, or adult family that work together. Within each particular context, I try to work and strengthen each subsystem (sibling/parental) as well as the dyadic relationships (father/mother-son/daughter, sibling-sibling). This helps create bonds and special connections among all family members inevitably leading to new positive ways of interacting.

I routinely work with families in my practice. There are any number of reasons that families seek counseling. Quite frequently, the reasons revolve around children and parenting. Sometimes there are issues between child or adult siblings. Unresolved conflicts from childhood. Arguments ensue over the family business. Caring for a special needs child, or an aging parent. At other times, family members have experienced a loss in the family or there are struggles with blending families in second marriages. These struggles also bring with them opportunities to create openings that may not have existed before. Counseling can be very useful in healing old wounds and settling disputes.

I believe in working with individuals as well as family members in therapy. Often I tell parents that I may be the expert in areas of counseling theory, developmental issues, parenting strategies or play and filial therapy, but they are the "experts" on their children. Together, we will work to find ways for the individuals or the family system to change and grow together in healthier unity.

There are a lot of different types of families. There are families of origin, blended families, two different home families, adopted families and grandparents raising grandchildren families. Sometimes conflict arises within the structure of a family unit. My expertise is with teaching parenting skills, dealing with divorce and separation, taking care of elderly parents, bringing home a new child whether infant or adopted, and work or school related issues. I can help you find and focus on the solution.

My strength and focus when working with your family is to hear what the problem is and provide you with a solution that your family can benefit from. When working with families, I understand that their are many voices wanting to be heard and different personalities clashing. That is why - I work to help each involved family member with tools and strategies on how to manage their areas of concern and that of the whole family. Give me a call today to explore what it is that may be impacting your family and how I can help. I understand that the process of "shopping" for a counselor is lengthy - difficult - and a bit scary --- but so is the alternative of continuing on.

When it comes to family therapy, it is important that interaction between you and I are supportive in nature. I approach this in a non judgmental and acting manner. My approach is to understand the family dynamics and gain insight into what is best for the family. We identify the needs and wants to allow a strength based approach to healing. I believe that everyone is important and their voice must be heard and this is encouraged in family therapy.
