Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Your family may be struggling to achieve balance in a rapidly changing and often troubled world. Your family could be complex, and often, it is intergenerational. Some families have confused boundaries & could be disengaged, balanced, or enmeshed. Families in stress could find it challenging to cope with birth, graduation, marriage, separation and divorce, remarriage & illness or death. Change at some level is inevitable & some families are more resilient than others. Contributing factors to distress include poverty, a lack of education & training, unemployment, underemployment, past trauma, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation & the like. We offer you a family therapy that combines theory and direct practice experience from thirty years of connecting with families.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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....

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

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.

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.

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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

In T2S 0A5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In T3C 0X7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.
