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.

Families can be one of the most rewarding human experiences and the most difficult experiences . I work with various types of families and work with issues from everyone involved. I can help you enrich your current relationships or help with problems such as conflict, arguing, lack of family connection, communication difficulties or understanding past experiences in a positive and safe environment. Several formats are used including counselling individually (such as only one family member solely attending counselling or the entire family. Families have the opportunity to grow individually and together.

Families can be challenging. I am part of a family, I get it. Working through conflict, disagreements, differences, and piled on issues from that past often ends in things becoming more challenging and confusing. As a family therapist I can help sort through these challenges. By taking a better look at the interpersonal processes, patterns of emotions, thought, and behavior, we can gain more understanding, increase our compassion and patience for ourselves and others, and begin to find more effective ways of being together.

Families can be both our greatest blessing... and it seems, our greatest curse. In general, I tend to focus on the parents the most in family therapy. If the adults in the home are unified in their attitude and approach, it can make a tremendous difference on the kids. Of course the kids have a role to play in this as well, and in many cases family peace comes from finding a balance in expectations and responsibilities for all members. There is no one-size fits all solution to a family dynamic and the challenge can lie in satisfying competing needs. Of course families today come in many forms. Blended families and co-parenting add to the many challenges. Call to see how I can help.

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.

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.

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.

I find that families typically receive great outcomes when they start working together to create more balance in their family system. Each family struggle is unique and communication styles may prevent understanding of the real problem. I use psycho-educational resources to teach each family about their communication patterns in order to achieve sustainable results with family relationships.

Our families can be our greatest source of support or cause for our most intense pain. Learning to talk and listen with respect is a key to healing. When there is a willingness for openness and acceptance of each other bridges can be mended. It is often easier to do this in a safe place with an objective person. Individual sessions are usually recommended before bringing the family together.

Family conflict is past down to us from previous generations. Engaging with conflict can lead to more compressive understandings of our needs and the needs of others. By exploring family conflict intimacy is increased in our relationships. This exploring is easier said then done, especially because at times it can seem easier to ignore the conflict.

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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

Edmonton, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 4Y9 | 780-809-0684

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.

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.

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.

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.
