When there is chaos in the family, there is often feelings of not being understood, heard, or hurt. Family therapy can be very beneficial to provide new ways to communicate, When there is effective communication, conflict decreases and satisfaction within the family and interpersonal respect increases. Individually, self-esteem and self-regulation of emotions also increases. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental setting to train the family in new communication styles, creating new patterns within the family dynamics.

Family means so much to God, so it should mean so much to us. Consequently, family dynamics can be quite challenging to work through when issues arise. The struggles that come from families of origin can stifle growth in a marriage and cause a lot of friction in raising children. Not to mention, having children can introduce many new dynamics that consist of anything from their behavior issues to significant emotional distress and social challenges. I can help you navigate through these challenges effectively either with your children individually or within the context of family therapy.

I utilize Imago Relationship Therapy, based on the book "Getting the Love You Want" by Harville Hendrix as the primary tool in assisting families. The Imago approach assures that every member of the family is heard, validated, and understood, in the context of their individual experiences of one another. Usually the health of the parental/caretaker relationship with one another sets the tone for the entire family. I assist in clarifying family values, family roles, appropriate responses to one another, and strategies for more healthy communication and understanding. What is almost always exposed is the love that we've misplaced or have taken for granted in our struggles to connect.

Though individual therapy is an essential piece in mental health recovery, the addition of family therapy can further the recovery process. Very few of us live as isolated life, remaining unconnected to others--no family, friends, or coworkers. Therefore, helping an individual communicate with their family, and helping the family to not only understand but learn how to help their loved one--can be an important part of the recovery process. Whether it be trauma, addiction, or mental illness such as Bipolar, Depression, or Anxiety, family therapy can help build a healthy support network. We all need supportive people in our lives. Family therapy can help.
