Family Therapist

Rebecca Martin, M Sc., LMHC, NCC, CCC

Canadian Certified Counselor

10250 176 St. NW, Edmonton, Alberta

We bring to our families what we learned in our family of origin, and so do our partners - and then we either try to raise our children as we were brought up, or somehow rebel against it. In family therapy, you and your partner will identify the patterns that worked. And, you and all the family members will learn together to communicate more clearly, to see events and interactions through the each other's eyes and to acknowledge and validate each other's feelings.

Family Therapist

Cory Hrushka, M.A. R.Psych., CDST

Registered Psychologist, Certified Diplomate of Sex Therapy

2532 Ellwood Dr SW, Edmonton, Alberta

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.

Family Therapist

AnneMarie Whitton, M.Sc. (MFT)

Registered Psychologist

#200, 6732 - 75th St., Edmonton, Alberta

Family therapy has the potential to bring the system into the room and create the space for healthy interacting and healing. I believe each family is a collection of individuals that need to be loved and accepted not for who they could be but for who they are. In working with families I attempt to create a circle where voices are heard and understanding is pursued. The purpose to respectfully be together for the sake of creating something more healthy and more enlightened. The family has the potential to create individuals who feel loved and accepted and thus enter into relationships outside of the family that foster a healthy lifestyle individually and collectively.

Family Therapist

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

9690 182 Street, Edmonton, Alberta

When working with families, I focus on built-up hurts, communication, expectations, and appropriate parent/child roles, so that all members learn how they each affect one another . We work as a team to unearth feelings that have not been shared, and how to communicate these effectively, so that they can be heard, acknowledged, and resolved. We also work on practical strategies to help with everyday life, whether this be with regards to parenting strategies, discipline, rule setting, negotiation for older children, or age appropriate expectations. By developing more empathy for one another, families can reach a greater understanding and sense of connection with one another.

Nancy Hurst, Ph.D

Registered Psychologist

10069- 80 Ave, Edmonton, Alberta

Families can be very challenging and stressful at times! I will help you and your family discuss difficult topics, set boundaries with each other and accept each other's differences. It can be very painful when there is discord between family members! Most people want to have a close relationship with their family members and let go of past arguments. It is sometimes easier to resolves difficulties with the objectivity of person outside of the family.

Inga Gusarova, MSc, CCC

Certified Canadian Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Family Therapist

Paul Sussman, Ph.D., L.Psych.(AB), L.Psych.(GA)

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

14307 - 80 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta

Treatable conditions appear in the most traditional of families. In addition, the number of non-traditional families (blended, adopted, foster, alternative lifestyle) is increasing; and treatable conditions arise in these families, too. When unhealthy and/or unfulfilling patterns affect whole families, it can be useful to involve the entire family in the healing process. At Sussman Psychological, family members interact on a level playing field where everyone has a chance to be heard, and an obligation to listen well and to hear others. The usual power structure is temporarily put aside in favor of optimizing effective communication processes at the level of the emotions.

Registered Psychologist, Registered Provisional Psychologist and Canadian Certified Counsellor

#32 4004 97 St NW, Edmonton, Alberta

When working with families, Tammy uses an integrative approach that is composed of both structural and intergenerational therapeutic components. Using this approach, the family system is viewed as a open, living system, that undergoes constant transformation. She believes in the restructuralization of the family’s interactions through the use of activities that integrate interactions with the horses-- this allows the family to eventually become more flexible with a variety of alternate ways of responding to one another.

Family Therapist

Doreen Foy, M.Sc.(MFT)

Registered Psychologist

#204 Princeton Place, 10339 - 124 St. NW, Edmonton, Alberta

By engaging in family therapy, many people have found ways to increase their communication skills and have learned how to increase the bond between members. Families seek the assistance of a therapist for many different reasons. For some, it is a major change to the family such as a divorce, for others, it is a persistent problem that the family is unable to resolve on its own. Family Therapy can help participants learn helpful problem solving and conflict resolution skills; express their needs in a safe/supportive environment; enhance family relationships; break negative patterns and cycles of relating; process divorce or separation; and address child discipline issues.

Family Therapist

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#312, 9707 110 Street (Edmonton Psychological Group), Edmonton, Alberta

Families are living organisms, constantly evolving and changing. As individuals grow, they have different needs and require, within reason, a flexible environment that will adapt to these changing needs while ensuring that the wellbeing of the greater family unit remains intact. For various reasons, families suffer crises during times of change, and family members have strong emotional responses to one another that elicit or contribute to these crises. Psychologists trained in Marital and Family Therapy have the assessment and intervention means to help families navigate the sometimes turbulent developmental stages with safety and understanding.
