About half of my clients are couples seeking help in their relationship. I help each partner to take responsibility for their contribution to the issues and difficulties that bring a couple to therapy. "Communication" is the most commonly mentioned issue. The couple learns how to argue fairly, how to express their needs and desires effectively, and how to listen to each other. Sometimes they accomplish these things very quickly, while in other cases it takes a considerable amount of time.

I believe in the power of an effective family. They can be our greatest refuge and sanctuary in the times of storm. Families can sometimes become "stuck" when the system isn't allowed to grow and develop appropriately and when boundaries are not effectively implemented, understood and respected. I will work with you and your family to resolve conflict, understand and then build upon your strengths.

The basis of society is the family. Growing up around other people, we learn how to treat one another and what to expect from the world. When there is conflict in our households, every family member has the potential to carry that conflict or attitude out into the world-- our schools, workplaces, the playgrounds, even into our churches. Family therapy can diagnose and treat the conflicts that we all encounter from time to time.

Does handling the day-to-day stressors of parenting seem so overwhelming that you sometimes feel like giving up? If you are a parent struggling to manage your child's difficult behaviors, help is available. Over the past 15 years I have helped parents develop the skills necessary to provide discipline, limit setting, love, and support that will enhance the growth and development of their child. I also help families understand how each member influences the family unit and how they can work together to support, nourish, and strengthen the family bond. As a parent coach I am trained to support and guide parents or caregivers as they work to deal with the challenges of raising healthy children.

My approach to family therapy can best be described as family systems. This is particularly helpful in working with teens and adolescents and their parents and other members of the household. In family systems, each person contributes to family dynamics uniquely and in turn the family provides feedback to the individual. Through creative techniques including sculpting, imagery, & role playing, the family practices new ways to perceive themselves and new ways to behave, which of courses impacts the entire system. This approach can be effective in making change when talking about the problem has only led to the family being stuck.
