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.

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.
Maribela Arruda-Block, MEd., R.Psych., CPT, CCC
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.

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.
