As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I utilize Imago concepts and tools to teach family members powerful communication techniques. While using these skills, I guide families to understand each other at a deeper level. This creates the space for family members to interact with each other in a more respectful, caring and nurturing manner. These techniques are very different than conventional family therapy techniques and may or may not be suited to your specific family issues. Imago is very suited to families where members are not feeling heard, supported or respected. Please call to discuss your particular situation.

Family therapy is an important part of the recovery process because it is a time in which broken familial relationships can be mended. During sessions, the family will have a chance to share how your addiction has affected their lives. Additionally, family members will learn more about how they can be supportive for their loved one. We’ll provide your loved ones with connections to community resources to have access to additionally.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

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 is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.

I work with families of all shapes and sizes to develop communication skills in order to effectively connect with each other.

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.
