I believe strongly that human beings are naturally designed to form close connections with others. Emotional difficulties can often be linked back to challenging relationships with those closest to us. I help to facilitate discussions that support individuals to appropriately deal with the issues that are negatively impacting the family's functioning. By examining how the family as a whole interacts and understanding those problematic communication patterns, change can be fostered. Through an open and supportive counselling environment, family members develop compassion and connectedness that allows for the healing of past pain.

All families are unique - and all needs of families are unique. Using a systems approach I work to identify the needs of each family member, where they may not be able to hear one another and what the barriers may be in each individual situation. We develop skills and tools to connect and communicate with one another and to build the family each of you dreams of.

Registered Psychologist

2003 - 14 Street N.W., Suite 105, Calgary, Alberta T2M 3N4 | 403-630-7595

Families are the foundations from which individuals launch their lives, and the safe haven in which we live our lives. Sometimes, families get a bit off-track or forget the gentle arts of forgiveness and positive regard for each other. The ways in which we communicate both our needs and our caring impact our experience of family. I can help you improve communication, learn effective and respectful ways to resolve conflict, and strengthen connections inside your family.

The Healing Space, 1407 10St. SW,, Calgary, Alberta T2R 1E7 | 403 278 7305

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.

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....

It is not surprising that conflicts often arise in families when many people with various personalities, communication styles, needs and ages try to co-exist. Very often one or several people within a family can feel misunderstood, disrespected or simply not connected to the others. I have passionately worked with youth and their families for over ten years. I work to support families to "see" the intentions behind each other’s often misunderstood actions so that conflicts can be resolved and relationships strengthened.

With the use of family systems and emotionally focused approaches, clients will become aware of their role in the family dynamic, where the conflict and disconnection are, and the triggers for problematic behaviour. Through this process, corrective emotional experiences will support positive change in the relationship between the child(ren) and parent(s), create a more accessible and secure family unit, and be more effective in solving issues

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Families sometimes need help in order to function in a healthier way. Family dynamics can be overwhelming and boundaries may need to be explored and reset. Using a family systems approach, along with the Circle of Security, Shark Music, sculpting, and at times, art or play therapy, a family can learn how to gain insight towards a healthier and happier family unit.

Every family has their own way of doing things and although there can be moments of harmony, sometimes bonds can be disrupted and people require help to become reconnected. In family therapy, clients will learn to explore their own needs while strengthening and maintaining connections to family members. Much of this work includes acceptance, release, listening and awareness.

People exist in relation and within relationships; change affects everyone and can sometimes be uncomfortable.

Conflict and stress are common within the home. When this happens many adolescents and parents tend to run away from each other. However, this can be a confusing time for both parents and their children. We can assist by encouraging open communication with each other.

Family Systems Therapy is used to address many issues that can arise within the context of a family unit. At FP Counselling, we use this approach to counselling to assist families in identifying, addressing and coping with these issues as they surface, which has even shown to assist in addressing other mental health concerns like depression, anxiety and food-related disorders.

I help mothers and fathers to parent children to be physically and emotionally healthy, do well academically, have good social skills and self-esteem, be well behaved, and grow up to have healthy relationships. The focus in counselling is on the parent-child relationship. Issues that make parenting challenging are also addressed such as a parent’s own unmet emotional needs, stress, fatigue, feelings of guilt, a difficult birth experience, mental health issues, relationship difficulties, conflicts with extended family, or history of abuse. Whether your child is a newborn or a teenager, I offer help that is practical and respectful of the needs of the parent and child.
