When doing family therapy, Isabelle first meets with all members of the family individually to get an idea of everyone's perception of the factors contributing to the dysfunctional patterns. Then, she works with all family members guiding them to develop effective communication skills promoting respect and harmony while ensuring that everyone's needs are being heard. From then, through the use of play and enactments, she takes a leadership role in helping the family work together to make the necessary changes to create healthy relationship patterns.

Sometimes families require an outlet where each member can be heard in a safe environment. I use talking circles to achieve this in families. I have a question for the group, and each member can answer without interruption until all have had a chance to speak. Many times, the healing occurs in this process. If problem solving of a particular situation is further required, I facilitate the discussion after the talking circle.
