Even great families can need help. Teens sometimes get off track in the process of growing up. Family therapy works well to get parents and kids on the same team and moving in a positive direction. When divorce and remarriage impact a family, we can find ways to heal the past and create relationships where people get along with each other much better. I have years of experience working with families with teens, stepfamilies and blended families. I also work with families with all adult members regarding family businesses, money issues and aging parents/elder issues.

Working with several people at a time helps to support the entire family unit through issues of conflict, trauma, loss, divorce and other challenges. Sometimes, these issues may be related to one or more family members experiencing depression, anxiety or difficulty relating to others. If one is experiencing these issues, family members may be having a difficult time dealing with the stress and conflict related to the problem. My goal is to help you and your family overcome the challenges and pain related to these problems and encourage positive, meaningful connections with family members.

Family therapy can be an important aspect of helping a young adult heal from an eating disorder. If you have a family member struggling with an eating disorder, we can help your family work together to support the recovery process. Our approach can not only help your child or partner, but help strengthen bonds within the family and increase effective communication, compassion and understanding.

I view families each as a unique mobile--all the parts interconnected and if one moves (changes), all the others react. Family therapy involves recognizing how each person affects and is affected by each other, and building on each one's and the family's strengths while helping everyone to change the self-defeating, not constructive patterns they engage in that perpetuates the crises and distress felt. I find it is often useful to not just work with the family as a whole, but also at times work with the individuals and the relationships between parts of the system. Regardless of the severity and the specific areas of problems (inlcuding when addictions exists), they can be corrected.

I do family therapy for issues related to children 18 and above. In such a context I will bring everyone together and create a safe supportive atmosphere where people can hear one another and learn how to respond in more productive ways that lead to increased feelings of closeness and decreased conflict. Clients report that their family ties are much stronger as a result of our work.

Much like the sophisticated inner workings of a mechanical clock, family members operate as a whole. Nobody operates in a vacuum. We develop our self identity largely from those we live with. Similarly, our belief system is informed by our family. People often take on psychological roles in the family. These roles shape our very identify - our thoughts, our behavior, and our feelings. Systems thinking is unique to family counseling. Transgenerational therapy is a form of family counseling that involves extended family members. Family therapy can help each member see the bigger picture and put the pieces of the puzzle together. I spent 7 years focusing on families while working with youth.

Even when I'm in session with an individual client, I'm in there with all the people who have ever left an impact on shaping their values and beliefs. Our families leave an imprint on us--good, bad, or indifferent. Because I was trained as a marriage & family therapist, I am always looking at the challenges that my clients face through the lens of family/systems therapy. Let's face it, our first relationships are with our families and they lay the groundwork for all the relationships we have thereafter. I often encourage clients to do family therapy sessions because of the profound healing and understanding they can produce. Even if only one family member changes--the family changes.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Families are so wonderfully complicated and are often only delicately balanced, if they are not outright dysfunctional. They present a challenge to any counselor or therapist as change in only one or a few people in the family will only tend to unbalance the system and make it worse before it gets better. I love working with families and the myriad of interactions that come with it, and I will never give up working to bring the system to a better functioning place where everyone is better and the system is more stable.

I am a trained and licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I have been practicing from this perspective for 16 years. Working with families of any size in the room allows for change in a different way than individual counseling does. As all parties work develop and work toward a common goal, the process of therapy provides possibility for greater change. Family therapy allows for learning different ways of communicating to others as well as hearing and being heard differently. "Practicing" new communication tools in the therapy room strengthens the end result in the home and at work. Not only do you learn about yourself on a deeper level, you learn about your other family members as well
