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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

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

As a family therapist, I use a systems perspective and a solution-focused approach. Family members discover the unique dynamics of their family system while moving forward by drawing on the strengths and resources identified in counselling. Rather than maintaining a problem-focused stance, solution-focused family counselling empowers clients while helping them focus on a hopeful future together.

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.

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.

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.
