Every family is as unique and complex as the individuals that define it. There are periods of time in which a family needs to change their ways of being together. When seen as an opportunity for change and growth, family therapy can facilitate deep and meaningful changes within the family structure. This process of acceptance and commitment with loved ones can also empower individuals to higher levels of well-being.

When problems develop in a family its not unusual for someone to be labelled as the problem. Then that person may be sent for "help". But many problems in families are the result of how the whole family is interacting. For example anxious children often have anxious parents who don't know how to help their children calm down, because they don't know how to calm down. Or anxiety can be dominating a family because a parent has an alcohol and anger problem and everone is afraid of what happens when they come home. In case like this, treating just the child won't help. Sometimes the whole family needs to attend together.

I use strength based family therapy by combining Structural Family Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. Through the use of finding a common goal the family members can practice positive interactions with each other, and create more harmony and understanding within their family. Working together, the therapist and clients create a safe place to enhance family relationships.

Cory has had over 15 years of practice doing family therapy using many different models including systemic theory, structural theory and strategic models... To name only a few. Not only has Cory been working with families for an extensive period of time but has been able to apply many of these skills to his own family/children. Cory's general belief is that although the complete family is preferred, family therapy can be done with only one or two individuals as long as we can impact change from just one source.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Families are forever evolving and changing as children age and life moves forward. It is important to stay connected with children and maintain healthy attachment throughout the lifespan. Staying connecting and maintaining healthy attachment is a life long process and requires work and time. I offer parenting coaching and attachment based strategies to help families stay connected and build strong relationships.
