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.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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 T6E 1Z1 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

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 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.
