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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

I see families with young children, teens and adult children. Sometimes I see siblings trying to sort out old family history. I help you discern how to set appropriate boundaries that take into account issues of safety and responsibility as well as the age appropriate needs of the children. Within the family counselling, issues between the parents may need to be addressed separately as they can interfere and sometimes inadvertently sabotage parenting roles. Children can be quick to take advantage of these issues. I believe in the value of families and work to strengthen family ties.

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.

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.

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.

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.
