Family conflict, communication difficulties, intercultural issues, blended families, and many other scenarios affect families today. Whether one member of a family is struggling, or many, the whole family may experience distress. I believe in helping the system to gain health, instead of pointing out one person as the problem. Allow me to walk along side your family during this difficult time and move towards a healthier happier family life.

With a Master's Degree in Marriage (Couples) and Family Therapy, I am equipped to help couples navigate through difficult relationship issues, such as communication blocks, lifestyle conflicts, infidelity, sexual addiction, and Internet addiction. Step-parenting and helping blended families form a cohesive unit is a specialty. I can work with your family individually and as a group. I hold workshops that are based on Susan Johnson’s “Hold Me Tight” program with video presentations of Susan Johnson working with couples who are learning the “Seven Conversations for a Life Time of Love”. I work with families around issues of substance abuse and addiction, with or without the addict.

Families are both rewarding and frustrating. I work with families as a whole and then with each member individually to determine what role they play within the family dynamic. Communication centers on both what is said and what is heard. This is done to establish respect for each individual in the family, so that the family unit can function positively and as healthy as possible. Blended family dynamics are exceptionally challenging; however, hope abounds for all concerned.

I absolutely love working with families! I still wish I had help of sorts when growing up in my own family. Counseling could have spared us alot of unnecessary pain and helped us to understand what was happening and what we could do about it. It is difficult for families to break away from habits and patterns that have naturally developed over the years without some outside help. Counseling offers abundant education, awareness, new ways of thinking and ideas on how to get more of what you want when it comes to your family. For most families, understanding, communication, mutual goals, compromise and peace are what they desire. My approach is tailored to each individual families needs.

Patterns in families can be long standing and hard to shift. Often times members in a family want the same thing, they just don't know how to go about getting it together. I teach skills in communication as well as listening. If you are struggling or fighting more than you want to within the family, having someone who can listen and mediate as well teaching skills is so beneficial.

Conflict amongst family members is common. These conflicts are frequently painful and result in emotional wounds that are difficult to heal. Family Therapy incorporates all members of the family and works toward achieving common goals. Families frequently have difficulties communicating, listening to one another, and understanding the concerns of others. Family Therapy is a tool that helps to promote positive and healthy interactions amongst family members.

The human mind is incredibly complex. As a family grows from two adults to a multigenerational system involving multiple personalities, communication styles and temperaments, disagreements are inevitable. The difference between a well-functioning family and one that is suffering from "dysfunction", is HOW conflict is handled within the household. I will help your family identify counterproductive communication patterns and power imbalances, and establish a healthy parental hierarchy that will result in greater respect and family functioning.

The family is the place where we can grow, feel secure and find a refuge from the outside world. It is also the place where we act out our insecurities and display our frustrations. Together we can figure out how to resolve conflict, have more effective communications and achieve more peace in your home. I will use cognitive behavioral and systems theories in my work with your family. These are proven methods to help you achieve more balance and harmony in your home. I am an experienced therapist and have seen many families become happier and more peaceful.

Family therapy is a particular approach to psychotherapy. Recognizing that the problem impacts a number of people, rather than one person, so should the solution. Therefore family therapy involves all family members. However there are times when the sessions involve only the parents. A genogram (similar to a family tree) will be created in the first session this will be referred to throughout the sessions raising awareness to the family's particular family system. Family therapy can be either short term or long term depending on the needs of the family.

Clients who are having difficulties within their family are often surprised when they begin to understand that every member of the family (yes, even dogs and cats!) have developed fairly predictable roles within a bigger family system. It is like they are actors in a play that has been rehearsed over and over. Once they understand these patterns and roles, we move forward by searching for the patterns that are positive and the ones that that are causing pain in the family system. "Would you be willing to change those entrenched roles, if it means that your family can regain some of it's balance, playfulness, and love?" I ask them. If the answer is yes, I find that families soon benefit.
