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.

When a family member hurts or has a problem, the whole family can be affected. As a systemic therapist I will support the family in finding solutions which not only help the individual but assist the whole family in learning how to cope and make positive changes. Every family has strengths.Let's identify and work with those strengths to problem solve and find healthier ways of interacting.

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.

Family therapy is working with the system, or the people who are present within the area of the problem. Even though a problem may be presented in one member, all members are being affected by the problem. It is the system that needs to be altered or taught how to work on communication, or interacting differently with each other. This can alter the problem. When one person changes, everyone changes.

The reason why I love doing family therapy is because unlike working with just one member of a family group, I get to see the generational themes that have caused the family system to become compromised. Besides my Ph.D. I also have a masters in marriage, family and child counseling. This has always been a bonus for my clients because I am able to pull from many different modalities as I help your family put itself back together again. If a family is fragmented..some of the members are suffering and carrying the burden for the rest of the family. Its my job to isolate the primary "disconnects" and get down to business as we uncover what has led the family into a dark place.

I help families have fun again! I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other. Family members find that they can “open-up” and start a dialogue that will help re-build their confidence, love & respect for one another. Together, we will discuss and gain insight into communication patterns, the family’s hierarchy and whether appropriate boundaries exist. Does the entire family attend sessions each week? It all depends; I may ask to see sub-sets within the family one week, or the entire family the next. The goal is always to help the family have less conflict and more connection.

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.
