I have worked with families in a variety of clinical settings and from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Every family is different and every member holds different roles. In family therapy it is essential to work with families on breaking maladaptive patterns, begin to truly listen to one another and to provide them with the tools to create healthy environments in their own home. My approach with family therapy is to join with the members in a open, safe and non-judgmental environment to help provide insight, support and new strategies for all types of life's challenges.

Understanding your family, understanding the roles each family member plays as well as what your role is within your family can be some of the best work a person can do in order to be a more cohesive family unit. Most families struggle with how to make their families work in a more cohesive and harmonious manner. It takes work but it is well worth the investment.

Research shows trying to just “fix the kid” does not generally work. The family should be involved if at all possible. I made it a special point to learn the specific strategies and techniques for this population as I went through my schooling. To this day I have approx. one decade of experience in working with this population, and I look forward to continuing to work with children of all ages, particularly with family involvement.

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.
