Each family member, although a part of a unit runs on their own. When that unit goes off path it is important to look at each component of that unit as a source of resolution and as an integral component to family well-being and balance. Problem Solving Therapy looks at the family or couple unit and its social context. What is happening within the relationship? What is happening around the relationship? What influences the relationship? The emphasis in Problem Solving Therapy is on the social situation of the problem. The problem is seen as a result of the person(s) responses to their environment. Here each problem is approached with techniques specific to the situation. This therapy defines a ....

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 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 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.

The ones we love the most can also be the most difficult to help. Family is integral to succeeding through life’s challenges and to the healthy development of children. Like a mobile, the different members move and shift gently in sync with one another. When one family member moves abruptly and sharply, the others are affected and respond. Family therapy creates a space for you and your loved ones to have difficult conversations with an empathetic support. It creates opportunity to lead by example, demonstrate commitment to the family, and model healthy communication. I assist your family members to attune and respond with one another, so that healing may occur in the natural family network.

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.

Family relationships play an important role in our lives and can provide us with a strong sense of connection and belonging. When challenges/stresses arise they can have a ripple effect on everyone involved. I help families identify the issues involved, find direction, and establish more effective tools in communicating with each other and progress toward resolution of concerns.

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.

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 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.
