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

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.

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.

In is the combination of love; expectations; and feelings of being abandoned, unappreciated, not trusted, unheard, controlled, helpless, and/or ignored that often impact family dynamics. With emotions and their highest and patience as its lowest point, often attempts to independently resolve such dynamics results in increased conflict. I see my role as an objective, third party during Family Therapy. My role is to create a safe, warm environment within which each party can feel heard and hear others; where feedbacks are given through mutual respect; where solutions are reached through compromises; and assist member reflect on and explore areas that they may be unaware of.

A family is a "system", like a cell or marsh environment. Natural laws are at work in the structure any organization; whether a family or community grouping. Groups move towards balance. When a family is in serious distress, they draw closer to each other by focus on a person with symptoms, or a famlly "scapegoat". Any "different" person may act out underlying family pain . The famly focuses attention on the problem person so their underlying patterns are submerged. I gently undercover the underlying distress to free the family from the spell of dysfunction. Communication, problem solving, and partental bonding contribute to fulfilling connections.

Family is the most important thing. However, sometimes stress and life transitions cause conflict and distress. Family members sometimes lose connection with each other. Our approach to resolving conflict and disconnection is heart-felt and based upon the idea that we all need to be connected to out loved ones. We believe all behavior makes sense and that if you get at the underlying needs and feelings propelling a behavior, you can resolve the issue.
