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.

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.

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.

Families have undergone many changes in our time. These changes can bring serious stress to the most important relationships we have. I will give a compassionate caring approach to your specific family needs and problems. I will provide a non-judgemental atmosphere in which each member can be heard, and I will endeavor to integrate those differing perspectives in a way that promotes healing. I can help you to set healthy boundaries that will give each family member an opportunity to develop as the unique individual that they are, while still being a connected member of the family.

There’s nothing that can bring us quite as much joy--or, at times, as much pain--as our families. Family therapy can be extremely effective because as family members offer their “take” on the problem, they indirectly become part of the solution. The families I work with often enjoy better communication with each other and a new-found mutual respect and appreciation. They also enjoy passing these things along to the next generation.

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.

Danica has helped many families through counseling. She is skilled at listening to each person's perspective around issues, and believes that every voice in a family matters. While family difficulties can feel insurmountable at times, connection and understanding are some of the most important aspects of recovering from the feeling of being broken as a family unit. Regardless of the circumstances, families can heal. This healing is necessary in many situations, including families who are going through life transitions with their children, divorce/separation, co-parenting after divorce, helping children survive divorce, and issues in blended families.
