Free and open expression of thoughts and feelings is a hallmark of healthy family relationships. When members of your family feel safe to be themselves and express their thoughts and upsetting feelings, relationships flourish. Reactivity is common in families. It simply says that your brain has activated your body's fight-flee-or-freeze system. A relational approach to healing family issues focuses on nurturing quality relationships in which there is natural giving, in which each member feels they can give from a place of love rather than fear, and non judgment allows them to openly express their uniqueness and grow in a supportive context.

Family work is perhaps the most effective means of helping children and adults to experience relief from life's difficulties. It is not easy to be a parent--I am strongly committed to helping families negotiate difficult times together. We know that being heard and understood helps all family members empathize with each and begin to learn about each other's experiences. Adolescents are often fearful and apprehensive about family therapy--but learn that they can voice their thoughts and opinions safely.

Family should ideally be a refuge from stress but is so often a major source of it. I offer clients a safe place to identify the way families interact in order to create more satisfying relationships.By focusing on how the whole family interacts rather than on just an individual, I can help strengthen the family system so that members can effectively work on problems together. I will work to teach clients new ways to handle conflicts and communication.

Families have as many dynamics as there are members. Each family has its own system to handle life's challenges. Sometimes, some of these systems do not operate effectively. The goal of family therapy is to help families understand the systems used, how they are not helping, and learn new skills to better equip the family to provide a safe and secure home for all to thrive

Typically, family therapy will bring the entire family together in therapy sessions. However, it may be that individuals in the family also see the therapist alone. There may also be times when individuals who are not a member of the family (such as a teacher or school counselor) participate in a therapy session with the family if their participation would be of benefit to the family. We can help your family learn how to better solve problems and how to better express thoughts and feelings. In family therapy, family members will learn about family roles and rules. Family members will examine behavior patterns and learn to identify issues that cause conflict.

Family relationships are hard and demanding and frustrating. We strive for peace and harmony in our homes and often find ourselves angry, in tears and feeling powerless. I work with nuclear families, blended families and adoptive families who are living in chaos. I educate parents on setting appropriate limits and boundaries and STICKING TO THEM while also teaching kids how to have respect, follow rules as well as having an appropriate voice and getting their needs met. You WILL see positive results; bringing structure and balance into the home is the bare minimum you will experience, when you find yourselves laughing together as a family, you will know you have arrived.
