Many times we find ourselves in conflict with the ones we love. This may be due to poor communication, old hurts, growing pains or misunderstanding each other needs. In my experience just having a neutral person to facilitate a meeting makes a huge impact. Many of my clients report improvements in their relationships after the first session. Take the first step to improve your relationship today. Call now.

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.

I offer families with emotional and hormonal teenagers a place to come to find rest and peace. Raising teenagers can be very hard work but with your hard work and determination, no family is without hope. I've worked with teenagers for many years now and have a heart for the difficult and confusing time of life that they are in. They will find my office to be a place where they feel safe sharing what they are experiencing which can lead to more openness and change.

No safer place. No better time. Because family is not an organization but an organism, when one part is hurting or out of sorts, the entire organism is affected. It's easy to play the blame game, and attempt to segment off a family member's issue from the lives of the others. Like it or not, we are all connected, and all have a part in the health and solution of the problem or trouble. I can help you come together to use the collective resources of each family member to benefit the whole, and help with the healing. Family is perhaps the greatest shaper of our identity and values, and therefore is worth the investment and priority to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible.

The family is made up of individuals. Yet the family itself is a unit, an organism, a system of moving parts. Every member is a moving part in the whole of the family. When one moving part stops moving or moves in an entirely different direction, the family unit is affected. For this reason, it is important when working with families that I ideally work with all members of the family. I bring in family members to counseling sessions individually, sometimes in pairs, sometimes all together. I help families learn to communicate and interact in a way that is harmonious, respectful and effective.

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. Contact us for an innovative neuroscience solution to family dysfunction. Kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

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,

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.
