Our families of origin are where we learn how to see the world, people and relationships. When families encounter significant stress or change - such as the loss of a member of or a change in status through divorce or remarriage - it can be difficult to regain equilibrium. Often it is reassuring for families to learn that what they are dealing with is normal, and given some coping strategies they can regain their good functioning. Some families need help with communication issues, appropriate boundaries, parenting strategies, or dealing with aging parents or members with alcohol and drug issues. Whatever the case may be, creater deeper understanding between family members is always key.

I help families discover their strengths and encourage positive marital communication and leadership with authoritative parenting of the children. I also encourage each person to take personal responsibility for their experience, to speak directly, and honor their higher qualities of character in working through problems. This is especially helpful in helping parents establish good communication in the best interest of their children in situations of divorce. Challenging situations, as family conflict and divorce, frequently opens old core wounds. These can be addressed and the emotions used to spiral higher evolution and growth.

Family therapy brings families stability. Your family is continuously evolving and growing, through births, deaths, new life experiences, and many other changes. As changes occur, families experience stress and feel unstable. In therapy, each family member works to help others to more fully understand their own uniqueness, bringing the family to a deeper relationship.

When one member of the family is struggling, every member struggles in some way. The degree to which each family member is affected will differ, as will the way in which each family member reacts. It can be very difficult to attend to everyone's needs at the same time. In family therapy each family member is given a chance to find their voice, and speak without fear of reprisal. Open, honest communication is encouraged in a safe environment where everyone is heard, and family members begin to understand how other family members are feeling. If someone in your family is struggling, I know you are too. I would be honored to provide the space and guidance to move through this difficult time.
