Families go through periods of time in which they need help. Do you feel that your family is struggling and you feel lost in how to help? I am a Family Therapist and have a unique talent of helping families find new ways to connect in meaningful ways. If your family is experiencing troubled times don't wait for it to get worse. I will help you find a way to navigate through these difficult times and learn ways of communicating so that each person feels valued, loved and accepted. I work from a systems perspective and can help you identify strengths of your family system and more importantly find ways of reconnecting in a meaningful way.

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.

Each person belongs to different sub systems in their life that include, but are not limited to, school, work, place of worship, community and family, that combine to create our unique life experiences. Family therapy can be especially effective with children, as often the problems are inter-related with what's going on at home. I (Megan) find it important to cultivate open and honest communication within the family sub system, provide education and modeling support and positive reinforcement.
