Family Therapy works with both the individual and the family to ensure goals achieved are long lasting. For adults, family therapy involves setting realistic goals and finding strategies to achieve them. If dealing with a mental illness, coping strategies can be made not only with the client, but with their entire family, to ensure success for any who wishes to be involved. St. Louis Marriage Therapy teaches individuals and families parenting skills, problem solving skills, anger management skills, emotion regulation skills, and social awareness skills.

Is your family out of control? Is communication non-existent in your home? Do you long for peace and harmony? If so, you'll likely benefit from family therapy. When families come to see me we talk about the whole family, not just one or two individuals. I believe conflict in the home involves everyone, therefore family therapy should involve everyone too. I will address everyone and challenge everyone to work on their contribution to the conflict. We'll address negative patterns that develop and how to replace them with positive ones. You'll learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way and how to communicate without fighting. Call me and let's talk about a plan of action for your family.

Ideally, a family is safe place where each of the members expresses love for the others and there is a mutually supportive atmosphere that promotes growth and success. All families struggle to live this ideal at times because we are human and we have faults. However, some families experience more significant struggles because of various reasons such as mental illness, addiction, previous hurts, or difficulty communicating. I believe that all families have the ability to move from their current functioning to a more satisfying and enjoyable experience. At times, families may need someone to help them address these concerns and build new skills that allow them to move forward.

As a parent, you know your child better than anyone else. Yet sometimes family distress clouds our abilities to navigate effectively. As a therapist but also a wife and mother, I understand how troubling family distress can be upon every member of the family. I have done extensive research and speaking on the topics of childhood attachment and how family relationships develop and thrive. If you are a parent looking for ways to understand and respond more effectively within the midst of family stress, I would love to help.

Family therapy brings families stability. Your family is continuously evolving and growing, through births, deaths, new life experiences, and many other changes. As changes occur, families experience stress and feel unstable. In therapy, each family member works to help others to more fully understand their own uniqueness, bringing the family to a deeper relationship.

Similarly to the way all the parts of a car engine function together to make the vehicle run, family members have specific roles they fill that cause the family to operate the way it does. Families will benefit from family counseling because when something is wrong within the family system, every member can benefit from change. The good news about family therapy is that when one person begins to change, it effects change in everyone.

Living in families is difficult. Even the best families have their days. My approach to family therapy involves examining the dynamics of relationships (e.g. roles, communication patterns) in order to assist each member to grow in healthier interactions. I subscribe to an understanding of the family as a system. In other words, no one person is the cause of current difficulties.

I help families discover their strengths and encourage positive marital communication and leadership with authoritative parenting of the children. I also encourage each person to take personal responsibility for their experience, to speak directly, and honor their higher qualities of character in working through problems. This is especially helpful in helping parents establish good communication in the best interest of their children in situations of divorce. Challenging situations, as family conflict and divorce, frequently opens old core wounds. These can be addressed and the emotions used to spiral higher evolution and growth.
