Family is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I utilize Imago concepts and tools to teach family members powerful communication techniques. While using these skills, I guide families to understand each other at a deeper level. This creates the space for family members to interact with each other in a more respectful, caring and nurturing manner. These techniques are very different than conventional family therapy techniques and may or may not be suited to your specific family issues. Imago is very suited to families where members are not feeling heard, supported or respected. Please call to discuss your particular situation.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

I have many parents that bring their child to me and in essence say "please fix my child". It usually involves the entire family working together to fix the problem that is showing, which is typically through the child. The child is really saying "please help me and my family" with their behavior. Family Systems Theory supports this belief and I have seen it work with people that are willing to make positive changes dozens and maybe even hundreds of times.

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.
