My approach to family therapy is heavily influenced by the work of Murray Bowen. Briefly, Bowen believed families are a system unto themselves, with each member influencing the lives of the others they are connected to. I think working with a family is both challenging and exciting, because seeing change in one member often results in the whole group realizing aspects of themselves they had not known before. When working with a family system I also believe parents should be parents first (not friends) and that children should be children... a lot of confusion happens when these lines are blurred. In therapy, looking at relational, communication and behavioral patterns are imperative.

Problems have many ways of dividing families. Shame and Guilt for example have us isolate ourselves from the people we love. Anxiety gets us angry and anger has us blaming each other. I help families join together against all those problems. I give them strength and compassion to get through it together rather than working against each other and feeling bad and worried. I can help each and everyone have a voice and feel validated. I invite family members to understand each other’s perspectives which immediately relieve frustration.
