Often time a family loses cohesiveness due to life stressors, difference of life goals and age related stages each member is going through. Even though it may seem like one member is the main "problem" it effects all members and takes cooperative effort to improve communication and improve the family's quality of life. Let me assist you in achieving this goal.

The dynamics of a family are unique and complicated. It is important that in all sessions each member is heard. Family systems therapy regardless of the problem whether "individual" or a "family issue," involving the family in solutions often benefits clients. As a family and couples counselor my ability to influence sessions is in a way that catalyses the strength, wisdom and support of a wider system is crucial for positive outcomes. With over ten years of experience as a drug and alcohol counselor understanding the impact that substance abuse has on every individual in the family system is beneficial in helping family gain awareness and knowledge.

Families can be complicated. You may be struggling with a particular issue and not know how to approach it with your partner or your family. Perhaps your child is having a difficult time or has gone through a traumatic event and you want to be supportive but aren't sure what to do to help. Maybe you and your loved ones are just having a hard time talking to each other and getting along. Family therapy can help. I provide a comfortable and secure place to discuss your concerns, feelings and goals. I help families gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the issues, and work collaboratively with them to build effective communication skills, reduce conflict and promote growth.

In working with family issues, I first determine the cause of the issue. We would then discuss and agree to treatment options. When issues are with adolescents, sometimes I end up being a sounding board when they feel they can't talk to their parents. If there is communication issues between family members, I will work with them on building skills to better understand each others needs. The goal Is generally to have everyone working together as a team. When there is conflict in a marriage or pending separation or divorce, I will work with family members to adjust to the changes taking place and assist them in the reorganization process.
