Family relationships play an important role in our lives and can provide us with a strong sense of connection and belonging. When challenges/stresses arise they can have a ripple effect on everyone involved. I help families identify the issues involved, find direction, and establish more effective tools in communicating with each other and progress toward resolution of concerns.

Family relationships are ones that unite and create a nurturing and developmental change in the members associated in it. When family members seek treatment they will experience decreased conflict, increased harmony and pleasure in their relationships with each other. The family will learn the skills to create a strong, healing, emotionally stable environment.

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#312, 9707 110 Street (Edmonton Psychological Group), Edmonton, AB T5K 2L9

Families are living organisms, constantly evolving and changing. As individuals grow, they have different needs and require, within reason, a flexible environment that will adapt to these changing needs while ensuring that the wellbeing of the greater family unit remains intact. For various reasons, families suffer crises during times of change, and family members have strong emotional responses to one another that elicit or contribute to these crises. Psychologists trained in Marital and Family Therapy have the assessment and intervention means to help families navigate the sometimes turbulent developmental stages with safety and understanding.

AnneMarie Whitton, M.Sc. (MFT)

Registered Psychologist

#200, 6732 - 75th St., Edmonton, AB T6E 6T9

Family therapy has the potential to bring the system into the room and create the space for healthy interacting and healing. I believe each family is a collection of individuals that need to be loved and accepted not for who they could be but for who they are. In working with families I attempt to create a circle where voices are heard and understanding is pursued. The purpose to respectfully be together for the sake of creating something more healthy and more enlightened. The family has the potential to create individuals who feel loved and accepted and thus enter into relationships outside of the family that foster a healthy lifestyle individually and collectively.

Nancy Hurst, Ph.D

Registered Psychologist

10069- 80 Ave, Edmonton, AB T6E-1T4

Families can be very challenging and stressful at times! I will help you and your family discuss difficult topics, set boundaries with each other and accept each other's differences. It can be very painful when there is discord between family members! Most people want to have a close relationship with their family members and let go of past arguments. It is sometimes easier to resolves difficulties with the objectivity of person outside of the family.

Family Counsellor

Cory Hrushka, M.A. R.Psych., CDST

Registered Psychologist, Certified Diplomate of Sex Therapy

#203 9148 -23 ave, Edmonton, AB T6N 1H9

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.

Family Counsellor

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

9690 182 Street, Edmonton, AB T5T 6M1

When working with families, I focus on built-up hurts, communication, expectations, and appropriate parent/child roles, so that all members learn how they each affect one another . We work as a team to unearth feelings that have not been shared, and how to communicate these effectively, so that they can be heard, acknowledged, and resolved. We also work on practical strategies to help with everyday life, whether this be with regards to parenting strategies, discipline, rule setting, negotiation for older children, or age appropriate expectations. By developing more empathy for one another, families can reach a greater understanding and sense of connection with one another.

Family Counsellor

Mallory Becker, M.A., R.Psyc.

Registered Psychologist

Families can be one of the most rewarding human experiences and the most difficult experiences . I work with various types of families and work with issues from everyone involved. I can help you enrich your current relationships or help with problems such as conflict, arguing, lack of family connection, communication difficulties or understanding past experiences in a positive and safe environment. Several formats are used including counselling individually (such as only one family member solely attending counselling or the entire family. Families have the opportunity to grow individually and together.

Family therapy is one of our longstanding specializations and we work according to a family systemic approach. Families are the most important building blocks in our society, and dysfunctional families carry a very high cost both on a human level and in a societal level. Restoring parental authority, teaching children rights and responsibilities and moving the family towards better communication patterns and healthier boundaries are some of our targets. Most importantly ~ families need enough resources to handle the challenges of the reproductive work in society. Children need to be raised by an entire village - not only by their parents.
