It is impossible to look at client's issues apart from their families. Family therapy provides clues to how we learned to relate to other people, the roles we took on in our family of origin and how to make changes based on healthier ways of relating. How a client sees themselves often comes from the experience they had in their family of origin. This can be a stumbling block in achieving a healthy sense of self. I help clients to understand family dynamics and look at how they can make changes to feel more empowered and satisfied with who they are.

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.

Family Therapy is one of the specialty areas that Harvey has been involved in for many years, having worked for several years as a psychologist with the Red Deer Public School District prior to entering full-time private practice. He has trained and practiced in different approaches to family therapy including: Systemic, Conjoint, Cognitive Behavioral, and others. Families can expect the inclusion of: individual, couple, child/adolescent, and family sessions (or portions of sessions) during the course of therapy. This is necessary to optimize the therapist's understanding of the varying needs which individuals within a family have and how the needs of each can be addressed and blended.
