Registered Psychologist, Certified Diplomate of Sex Therapy

2532 Ellwood Dr SW, Edmonton, Alberta T6X 0A9 | 780-461-1717

Cory has had over 15 years of practice doing family therapy using many different models including systemic theory, structural theory and strategic models... To name only a few. Not only has Cory been working with families for an extensive period of time but has been able to apply many of these skills to his own family/children. Cory's general belief is that although the complete family is preferred, family therapy can be done with only one or two individuals as long as we can impact change from just one source.

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.

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.

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.

Family therapy is about more than just counselling individuals in the same room - it involves examining patterns of interaction between family members that lead to conflict and difficult relationships, and inviting members into newer and more beneficial patterns of interaction. Your family will benefit from a therapist specifically trained in family therapy including children and adolescents struggling with mental health symptoms.

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.

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.

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."

Family therapy is not only about kids or teenagers. Adult families could use help too! Dealing with significant life stresses or mental illness could affect the entire family. Or you may want to address long-standing tensions, or handle a family business where each generation sees things differently. Whatever it is, I aim to (1) help you understand each other and the patterns you may be stuck in, (2) find common goals, (3) build on your strengths, and (4) improve your skills. I work online, and research on online therapy for children is very limited. So my family therapy is for adults only.

If you or a loved one are struggling with a diagnosed mental health condition such as anxiety, bi-polar disorder or depression, it is probably putting the whole family under pressure. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside and help families understand and cope as a unit. Often family members are unsure how to deal with their family member’s treatment needs; sometimes they place pressure on them to stop or start medication; other times they struggle to keep their loved one compliant in taking the medication. A family session with Dr Mervin will not only inform on these matters, but will also help you manage the family dynamics surrounding it.

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.
