Plans May Be Bow-Tied: Treatment Des Concierge © Medical Des Concierge © Treatment Home Healthcare © Treatment Tourism ©
We have developed "Family Des Concierge ©" out of necessity and "Necessity is the mother of all invention". It was due to our clientele's special requests that we developed this plan. Family may be involved as little or as much as either family member would prefer. The family does not need to be on-site and may be in all parts of the world. It is however very important for family to be educated and informed on some parallel as this will help to accelerate family healing and may keep an individual impaired if not engaged.

Family struggles do not have to be endless, even though it might seem like it. If that's the situation in your family, here is your opportunity to begin to break the cycle of familial strife and unhappiness. Fewer and fewer therapists are being trained in family therapy, and as a result, few therapist provide family therapy. Well, I do provide it, and have been for 30+ years. Even if the whole or parts of family refuse to come in initially or ever, you can come in yourself, and begin to get relief. Remember, when one part of the family system shifts the entire family will shift. It's OK to be a change agent of the family.

Dysfunctional family interactions can sapped the life energy out of every family member. While all relationships have conflicts from time to time, sometimes relationships can get stuck in repetitive patterns of arguments and disagreements that result in partners or family members feel unheard, dismissed, unappreciated, or worse. These negative patterns can lead to intense negative emotional reactions and dissatisfaction within the couple or family, that challenge the core of the relationship, cause personal internal turmoil, and can derail other important aspects of our lives. Family therapy can help in first recognizing and then changing those negative dysfunctional patterns.

I specialize in family psychotherapy. When working with families I work to observe and understand the family dynamics and the potential underlying reasons for the dynamics and work to use this to help the family shift their communication and interactions to assist them to change and reach their goals. I treat families presenting with differing issues and family psychotherapy can often help kids and adolescents with behavioral problems change their behaviors.

One needs to look at a family as a system. By this I mean that every member of the nuclear (and extended) family interacts with one another as well as the whole. If any element of the system changes or alters its behavior, the entire system experiences disharmony and disruption -- the homeostasis or equilibrium is altered. For families to function in harmony, a restructured equilibrium needs to be established. My job with you and your family is to help you identify where the interactions are skewed and to help facilitate movement toward a healthier dynamic.

You will be taught to explore with each family member how they function in the midst of your family and when alone. This helps your family members focus less on one particular person and focus more on the impact it has on the family as a whole. As a team, we will identify the various roadblocks as a result of conflicts and the unnecessary anxieties that arise, as a result of. We will then develop strategies that helps to solve them. This helps to strengthen the family unit which helps family members work on their problems without assigning blame. We will also handle conflicts and changes arising within the family as a result of therapy. Your family's strengths are utilized at all levels

When one person in the family is hurting the entire family is hurting. I work with stressed families to help them gain greater understanding of their difficulties, including ways to recognize maladaptive behaviors that may be getting in the way of their working together. Using a family systems approach I help the family to heal and move forward with compassion and understanding.

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.

Family therapy can help families work through issues related to communication, addiction, alcohol abuse, trauma, anxiety, and grief. An issue with any family member affects the whole family, and sometimes family therapy is more effective than individual therapy. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

Issues arise in a family for a multitude of reasons, both big and small. In individual or marriage/couples counseling, the individual or parental unit learns skills to apply in their everyday life, including at home. In family therapy, I will work with your family and your values to help you resolve issues in a collaborative, effective and structured manner. I will work with you and your family in developing communication skills that allow each member of the family to express his/her needs in an open and honest way. Because we work within your family's value-system, the family unit learns and develops these skills together, knowing their thoughts and needs were acknowledged and respected
