Family therapy will help you develop skills to deepen family connections & get through stressful times, whether some or all family members attend. Family therapy is designed to help you improve troubled relationships with your spouse, children, or other family members. Specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents & children, or the effects of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family, when addressed, can bring family members closer. It can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better & bring you closer together. I welcome your inquiry.

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.

I work with families to help them communicate and work together more effectively. Blended families require a unique method and I have been trained in how to address the "step" dynamics that can often emerge in this family dynamic. I meet with parents for an initial assessment and to discuss my strategy prior to the first family session.

My approach to family therapy includes understanding the many systems effecting the members of the family, exploring the roles and how they might change within the unit, and supporting the family in learning new ways to communicate and new ways to relate to one another. I examine and challenge the boundaries of the family, and help them figure out and challenge their typical patterns.

Relationships with those we love are some of the most significant factors in our happiness and mental well-being. Disharmony in relationships – partners, family or friends – causes frustration and sadness, but psychotherapy can help. I meet with couples, siblings, parents and children - often together - but there are times when other people in our relationships are unavailable or unwilling to seek therapy. Nevertheless, therapy can still help individuals resolve relationship problems even if those others aren't present. Sometimes, despite all our best efforts, a relationship needs to end. In that case, I help individuals and families navigate the challenges of break-ups and divorce.
