Even when one individual in a family is having trouble, it is important to look at the entire family system the individual came from. By exploring family roles, generational issues and relationship complexities, much can be understood about why a person behaves or thinks as they do. This information can be used to help an entire family get well. We do not exist alone, we are a part of a network of relationships that hold keys into helping us discover who we are and healing.

Many studies, including the famous 75 year Harvard study (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/11/how-this-harvard-psycholo_n_3727229.html) have found that the quality of our relationships are by far the most important factor in people's happiness and fulfillment in life. Many families have dysfunctional relationships; It's because they don't know how to talk with each other. I teach communication and problem-solving skills so that families can develop an open line of communication and resolve long standing issues and resentments. At the end of lives, it's the quality of relationships that matter most. No one on their deathbed ever says, "I wish I'd spent more time at the office."

Residential Addiction Program

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

When a family member is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, the entire family is affected negatively. Communication barriers within families of addicts may cause the addict to withdraw into isolation, leaving their family members feeling frustrated, ashamed, lonely, fearful, depressed, hopeless and angry. The sources of addiction are mental, emotional and psychological in nature, and the addict, as well as their family, need to heal under the care of professionals. At Valiant Recovery, we offer counseling to the families of addicts to help them process the difficult emotions they have confronted, and to create a healthy, supportive environment for the addict to return home to.

In family therapy it's important that everyone is heard, and all are considered worthy of being listened to. Often a single person may made be the stool pigeon for everything "bad" that's happening in the family. Democratic approaches are maximized in Dr. Val's approach. A family is a system and each part of that system affects the whole. If we're riding a bike and the chain falls apart, is the chain to blame? There was likely some neglect of care before that chain fell off, or/and ignorance as to how to maintain that bike. These are my thoughts on family therapy.

Similar to couples work, family work often involves learning different ways to communicate and understand each other. I approach family counselling by using a lens of compassion and focus on what each family member wants from the unit. By focusing on what family members want we are able to be less problem saturated in sessions while helping family members to develop, deepen and connect with one another.

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Couples therapy can help address areas of difficulty such as communication, being able to relate and support one another, intimacy, demands of work and family, and understanding the differences between one another. By learning how to effectively address these areas a relationship or marriage can develop into a secured trust and friendship.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

The success or failure of the attachment bond formed with our primary caregivers affects us as adults. People who grow up believing their needs will be met are resilient and able to remain focused, relaxed, and creative in challenging situations. People who grow up without such expectations will fear conflict, and will not trust themselves in conflict situations. Relational therapy and attachment theory informs my work in family therapy. I believe that a healthy family life involves an open and reciprocal sharing of affection, feelings, and love. By bringing genuine warmth, caring and compassion to the therapeutic relationship, I model a core belief of mine that caring and acceptance are key ele....

Addressing family dynamics is not an easy matter. This could be a parent / adult-child relationship, sibling relationship or in-law relationship. If a relationship in your life is causing you a lot of stress, counselling might be helpful even if only one party is attending.

Family relationships are an integral part of our lives. Family therapy can help a variety of family dynamics. This may include a blended family sorting through new and old roles, feeling a disconnect in communication with family members, coping as a family through a loss, illness or life event, or a parent child relationship that could be improved through an increase in communication, trust and understanding. I provide an open and safe environment to help support families in reaching their goals.
