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.

Why family therapy? Because the struggles of ANY member of you family affect EVERY member your family. Whether the issue is addiction, depression, eating disorders, or problems with your child or teen. Solutions are going to be the most effective (by far) if every member of the family is working toward making your home a healthier and more loving place.

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.

I employ a strategic and structural approach to family counseling. I create a warm, safe platform for families, blended families, couples, same sex couples and interracial couples to sort out roles and boundaries. I allow each individual to voice their feelings in a respectful, loving way. I help the family identify ways in which a relationship or individual problems are caused and maintained by certain family dynamics. I utilize communication techniques to build skills that allow for effective communication between family members and intimate partners. Some techniques involve reflecting, repeating and fair fighting (attentive listening & expressing feelings in a nonthreatening manner.

Bowen family systems theory is the standard in understanding families. Bowen found that if you are having an issue with someone in your family you may get close to another to reduce your anxiety and thus ignore the problem. This is called triangulation. Another way to deal with anxiety from another is to have emotional cutoff. In family therapy you would sort this out and learn to deal with the tension so that healthy relationships can happen.
Your family issue might be difficulties with a teenager. Adolescence is a difficult time in which teens are separating from parents, but it may not go smoothly. I can help sort things out so that this life transition can occur in a positive manner.
