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.

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 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 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.

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.

Sometimes a child or one family member is brought in for treatment of an issue that may actually have more to do with interactions between family members than a problem specific to this identified client. The psychologists at Lepage Associates believe that some of the issues that come up for children are due to interaction styles between family members and that a holistic, family therapy approach is the most effective treatment. Our psychologists approach family work with an awareness of each family member needs while also respecting parenting styles and cultural differences in childrearing. We find that the families we work with report stronger parent-child relationships, less conflict in the ho....

The aim of family therapy is to develop insight and understanding into relationship dynamics and family structures that may be contributing to dysfunction for one or several family members and ultimately identify develop healthier, more adaptive means of resolving conflict within the family system.
