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.

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.

Creating healthy patterns of communication and setting effective boundaries within a family structure (biological family, blended family, extended family) can greatly reduce conflict and create a stronger connection between members. I work as an impartial observer and can assist families with the tools to reduce unhealthy conflict and increase respectful dialogue.

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.

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 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.

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.

Families have great impact on the development of children and influence their entire life. Families have a natural status quo and each member has a specific role to play. Often we are unaware of the roles existing in families, although we eventually see the effect. I believe healthy communication that address these underlying patterns and have a goal towards wholeness, are effective in increase health for all involved.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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....

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.
