Utilizing their narrative, culture and family history we explore together what is the problem, and where does it stem from. My work with families applies a family genogram that explores family patterns, in addition to using a multisystems approach that brings in many voices (leading family theories) to make use of what will benefit the family and their quest to understand and receive healing from whatever crises they are attempting to deal with.

I feel called to work with adolescents and families. As a former middle and high school teacher, coach and mentor, I have a natural affinity for and ability to connect with adolescents. Oftentimes working with teens entails working with the entire family. I have been trained in family systems theory, and as such, focus largely on the boundaries, alliances and subsets of relationships in the family system. By restructuring and balancing these relationships, and by addressing the underlying emotional dynamics, families are able to develop healthier, more satisfying and harmonious relationships.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

The family system is a whole system and each individual of the system finds a role to live in. When problems present themselves the family finds ways to adapt to those problems (whether good or bad). Understanding that all individuals of the family are contributing to the problem(s) is vital in finding new ways to decrease the presenting problem(s).

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.
