Conflicts in a family can become so routine that it may be difficult for you to determine which issues are important and which have become automatic battles. I can provide your family a safe place to work through this with an objective and neutral perspective that allows everyone to hear and everyone to be heard. Frequent arguing, nagging, complaining - all intensify the stress of daily life. Your family can learn to live harmoniously - not perfectly without ever having conflict - but without the need for "winners" and "losers" in constant tug of wars. It is exhausting and unhealthy to live with tension in your home. Call me today and let's begin easing that tension and regaining calm.

By the time a parent is considering counseling for their child, they may have experienced a variety of emotions ranging from: sadness, fear, shame or anger. It can be very helpful to have a neutral professional to help teach the young person and their families how to learn different ways to think, behave, and communicate. Psychotherapy can help children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of ways – getting emotional support, resolving conflicts between family members, and trying out new solutions to old problems.

Most families want to make their relationships within the family more positive and communication more effective. Therefore, developing healthy interactions within a family unit is a key for survival of those relationships. Different members of the family can have their own problems which can have a negative impact on the entire family. In those cases, helping family members (often teens or children) resolve their own problems while working with others on supporting them in their journey becomes the goal of therapy.

Family counseling is the logical treatment of choice when couples are struggling to deal with a child having behavioral or social problems or when a family undergoes major changes - a new step-parent, the birth or loss of a family member, a move, disruption of the social support network, or marital discord. All members of the family may be included in the sessions and create a joint plan for working toward resolution of the problem or the sessions may focus on the parents working together to bring about positive change.

Family therapy is an opportunity to connect and bring balance and connectedness back into everyday life and interactions. It can be so easy for families to feel like they have no sense of guidance or direction, then everything starts to feel chaotic. I have worked with nuclear families, parents, parent and child, siblings, and many other configurations. I can both help provide ways to think about parenting as well as provide opportunities for connection within your family system. With families our basic bond is of the utmost importance don't let a sense of rupture become your longstanding reality.

I subscribe to the Gottman method which teaches effective listening, softening tools and mutual respect and value for each family member. Family therapy is one of my favorite areas and I love to see couples and families relearn how to experience the love they share for one another and give every family member a voice so they can gain self esteem that they can bring out in to the world

Family therapy gives the family the opportunity to explore its strengths, define its challenges and treat the entire family system. Individual Therapy offers the teen a safer place to vent difficult feelings, explore unpopular beliefs. This leads to more self-awareness and self-confidence. I have had considerable success working with teenagers. They sense my empathic interest in their problems and quickly recognize my understanding and desire that they solve their problems.

You are looking for family therapy because your family is so important, so precious to you, and you want a change to happen. Coming in for family therapy makes so much sense since nothing we do or feel is isolated - everyone in the family is affected. In therapy we will work together to regain balance and find a joyful solution for everyone (not just a compromise.) Our families are the most important part of forming who we are - by deciding to take action and come in for therapy, you are honoring the gift of family and getting to the root of the changes you want to make.
