My approach to working with individuals in a family is to build cohesiveness between members so that they feel connected and stronger as a whole. I focus on their strengths, thus enabling members to feel more united and happier while they strive to enrich the quality of their lives. I assist each member of the family to identify what goals they want for the family and explore positive solutions for change between members. Your relationships will be more caring and loving while members participate in family life and the community.

Relationships are hard work. There is little more difficult in life than having a lasting and rewarding relationship. Our loved ones evoke great feelings in us. In a warm, caring and non-judgemental environment, I am here to provide an objective lens to help support couples to solve their relationship issues. I am trained in Emotion Focused Therapy, one of the most empirically validated types of couple therapy. Today, Emotional Focused Therapy helped 70–75% of couples move from distress to recovery, and that 90% of them show significant improvements. Records show that many couples in distress were caught in a dreadful dance of negative interactions that kept them stuck and unable to resolve their conflicts. Using attachment theory, my role is to...(view profile to read more)

Psychology is the science of behavior. Based on this maxim we have emphasized in our service tradition teaching others the knowledge required to help produce the necessary behaviors to live well. Because of this, our goals and objectives are directed towards achieving that the human being can live in tranquility, in peace with himself or herself, and in harmony, not only with his or her own emotionality, reason and conscience, but with his or her immediate environment, that is, the family, as well as with the surrounding and universal society. We believe that the basis for the logical and rational good social order consists basically in positively reinforcing the appropriate behaviors of other....

Sometimes the difficulties occurring in a family are systemic - which means that there is not really a 'problem person' but a family interaction malfunction. In family counselling, it is understood that everyone in the family impacts and affects everyone else and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It is also understood that the way to 'fix' a family problem is not by simply changing specific behaviours, but by changing the structure of the family. This can be a very important process for the many different types of families that we have in our society.

The facilitation of healthy communication, resolving conflict and understanding levels of dependence in the family unit is a first step in getting to grips with the complexity of interactions. The identification of the various roles that are played out in the family, and the responsibilities each member has to further the family unit are explored. My approach is to create the opportunity for family members to feel they have a voice. To assist in the creation of family meetings where "things" can be discussed openly and each member is able to voice opinions and be heard. The approach is about what can be "appreciated" in the family, and the inherent strength's that help define the future.

"The idea that one of the best things you can do for your child is to create a loving relationship with your partner is not sentimental ... it's a scientific fact" - Susan Johnson, Hold Me Tight. More and more we realize that love is not a total mystery and that it can be scientifically understood. I will help you recognize how you are connected to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is dependent on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to strengthen families is to build secure emotional connections, and for members to be emotionally open, attuned and responsive to each other.

Every family is complex and unique. There are no cookie cutter solutions but there is hope. I specialize in bringing families together to develop new learning and strategies that will help them to move forward as a more understanding, loving, and hopeful unit. I look forward to working with your family to facilitate open dialogue, understanding, inward introspection, and compassion. Along the way I believe I am able to identify potential solutions and help each family member to meet their mutual goals.

Do you have trouble communicating with your kids, spouse, siblings, in-laws, or parents? If you are like most of us, you probably do! Families adopt certain rules for how people are to behave within the family, and more often than not, these rules contribute to unhealthy relationships and communication patterns. It is my job to help families understand and identify their dynamics, and work towards effective and healthy communication patters.
