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.

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.

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.

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.

Family therapy is one of our longstanding specializations and we work according to a family systemic approach. Families are the most important building blocks in our society, and dysfunctional families carry a very high cost both on a human level and in a societal level. Restoring parental authority, teaching children rights and responsibilities and moving the family towards better communication patterns and healthier boundaries are some of our targets. Most importantly ~ families need enough resources to handle the challenges of the reproductive work in society. Children need to be raised by an entire village - not only by their parents.

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.

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.

Families can be challenging. I am part of a family, I get it. Working through conflict, disagreements, differences, and piled on issues from that past often ends in things becoming more challenging and confusing. As a family therapist I can help sort through these challenges. By taking a better look at the interpersonal processes, patterns of emotions, thought, and behavior, we can gain more understanding, increase our compassion and patience for ourselves and others, and begin to find more effective ways of being together.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

The family unite can provide a foundation of security, love, and a sense of belonging. However, often times families can struggle for a variety of reasons and seeking counselling can help improve family dynamics, interactions, communication, and problem solving. Through counselling, families can begin to heal the broken pieces and establish a nurturing environment in which the family can flourish emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

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.

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.
