Shift family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific trauma or issues affecting the health and functioning of a family and individuals within it. It can be used to help the family through a difficult period of time, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members. We often break family members up into individual sessions to target are beliefs that we hold about ourselves and the world that become part of our identity.

Entering into family therapy means that you recognize that there is an interaction between family members that leads to conflict and discourse. I have been working with families in high conflict for 25 years and understand that it is easy to feel like you have tried everything to shift the interactions in your family. I have specific strategies to target the dysfunctional patters and. get your family focused in a new direction.

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.

Family systems issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing family issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when family challenges are present as they impact the very mechanisms we use to cope.

People exist in relation and within relationships; change affects everyone and can sometimes be uncomfortable. Where appropriate, I welcome and invite families in to avoid common pitfalls and create better environments of success for therapy. I create a non-judging atmosphere where each persons view is respected and heard. Family members often have great insight and perspective on the problem.

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

Calgary, Calgary, Alberta T2V 0P7 | 587-952-0694

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.

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....

1515 23rd Street NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 2P6 | 403-284-3200

I use a family systems approach when meeting with families, whereby I assess and try to understand the families basic structure, that is, who all is involved and has influence, for example, does extended family play a role?; the functioning of the family, such as rules, conventions and day to day practices of the family, as well as the quality and nature of the communication within and between family members. My task is to identify maladaptive patterns and try to facilitate better interactions in the family, especially in terms of problem solving together.

There are a number of unique struggles that are experienced in families. Handling difficult parenting issues can involve couples learning to work together in finding effective and supportive methods to address their children's behavior. It is very difficult for a parent to provide everything a child needs especially in school and peer situations that have many differences in pressures and communication devices that are quite new. Helping parents learn about and overcome their own deficits can also help the relationships with their spouse and children flourish and can help parents to support their children with many concerns that might have brought them into therapy in the first place.
