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.

My main emphasis in family therapy is for me to avoid ‘labeling’ clients with diagnostic/psychiatric names. Labels does not promote healing but yields potential ‘pathologizing effects,’ for example, calling blaming/labeling my client as a ‘drug addict.’ Instead, I help families to heal their relationships. My approach is not to encourage criticism/blaming on one or more family members as the causer of ‘dysfunction’ in their relationships—instead I ask how they feel about their concerns and what they see/believes to be the problem/issue in their families. Because of my approach, one client reported that she felt there was no further need to become critical of her partner.

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.

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.

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.

In T2E 6P6 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

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.

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Families can be crazy and difficult. The most difficult part is often dealing with the fact of loving them and feeling loyal and establishing boundaries and prioritizing your health and well-being. Often this can be done by clear communication, allowing every member to share their perspective and to be open to hearing and understanding where everyone comes from. This means working on trust, honesty and forgiveness - all tough things when we have fallen into cycles of behaviour and reactions to our family members. I work as a neutral and objective person in the room to support in untying these dynamics.

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."

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

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.

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....

All families have times when tempers flare, feelings get hurt and misunderstandings occur. Family therapy can help when everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents, start to escalate and impact family harmony. In addition, family therapy can help in addressing mental health concerns that impact the family, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues. I can help you and your family communicate better, work through conflicts and maintain positive connections.
