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.

In T6X 0A9 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

We can receive great joy and satisfaction through positive interactions with family members. In family therapy I teach people how to resolve conflict, and find solutions that strengthen relationships. Many families struggle with challenging situations: defiant teenagers, parenting problems, aging parents, blended families, codependency due to addiction issues etc. My goal is to help clients find solutions and learn strategies that meet their needs, so that they can experience greater satisfaction in their family relationships.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

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.

When working with families, Tammy uses an integrative approach that is composed of both structural and intergenerational therapeutic components. Using this approach, the family system is viewed as a open, living system, that undergoes constant transformation. She believes in the restructuralization of the family’s interactions through the use of activities that integrate interactions with the horses-- this allows the family to eventually become more flexible with a variety of alternate ways of responding to one another.

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.

Canadian Certified Counselor

In T5S 1L2 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

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.

Our families can be our greatest source of support or cause for our most intense pain. Learning to talk and listen with respect is a key to healing. When there is a willingness for openness and acceptance of each other bridges can be mended. It is often easier to do this in a safe place with an objective person. Individual sessions are usually recommended before bringing the family together.
