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.

Family Therapy is best approached from a Systems Theory model of counseling. I have enjoyed working with many families using specialized techniques from a Systems Theory model. We have succeeded to create positive change through difficulties the family members found overwhelming. I respectfully invite you and your family to have an initial counseling session with me to see if my style of counseling feels right for your family.

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.

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.

As a marriage and family therapist, my clients have shown me that there is a core human desire to be heard, validated, respected/valued and loved. In families we often fall into roles that define who we are in the system that can reflect how we are treated and how we behave. When working with families, I look at the patterns of connection within the family system, exploring those patterns that are working for them & seeking alternatives to those that are not working. I also encourage families to examine their expectations & the expectations they have of others. I work to provide a safe environment where each member in the family can have a voice & can collectively create stronger connections

I believe family therapy is often the most effective method of addressing mental health situations or normal life challenges. I believe that we are a product of our context, there is always another side to the story and my approach is to treat the relationship instead of the individual. I utilize Structural Family Therapy, Contextual Family Therapy, and Intergenerational Family therapy, among others. Clients have reported an increased understanding of healthy family dynamics and greater sense of control over how their own actions can affect family functioning.

Family conflict, like other conflicts in our lives, sometimes stems from the unreasonable expectations we put on ourselves and others. By examining the black and white thinking that is going on in our heads about how our family members' behaviors, we can turn those demands we make on others into strong preferences thereby turning unhealthy feelings and emotions into healthy disappointment and frustration.

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.
