My approach to family therapy is learning to communicate more effectively by focusing on current issues & interactions. Conflict resolution amongst family members is reviewed & the emphasis is on understanding & empathy with the goal of negotiating realistic solutions so that current family problems can be resolved. You & family members will learn to become closer & deepen family ties as well as get through difficult & stressful situations. The family will learn to solve problems & express thoughts & emotions effectively. Exploring family roles & behavioural patterns is necessary to identify issues that trigger conflict. You will learn positive interactions & reduce maladaptive responses.

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....

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.

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.

Relationships are a fundamental part of our lives and well-being. It is important to understand how to be healthy and effective in our individual contributions to a relationship. Many relationships consist of conflict and misunderstanding. One of the most important goals of relationship counselling is to establish healthy boundaries and guidelines. It is important to acknowledge that relationship counselling is not limited to partner or marriage counselling. It often also refers to therapy for: family, friends, or work relationships.

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.
