Our families are our most valuable asset and the most important foundation of our lives. They are from where we develop our personalities, our sense of identity, and our sense of safety in the world. So often, though, personality conflicts or misunderstandings and built-up resentments ruin our peace in the family. It takes a skilled family therapist to balance the individual needs of each family member and the overall health of the unit. One cannot be sacrificed for the other. I am very comfortable with all the complexities involved in dealing with multiple personalities with sometimes opposing agendas. I will help you sort things out to create a win-win for everyone!

Families with teens may experience difficulties such as rebelliousness, blended families, divorce, adoption, bullying and self-injurious behavior such as cutting. I help teens learn to deal with the challenges of transitioning from childhood to adulthood. I help parents learn new skills needed to cope with a teenager. I help families learn how to communicate their wants and needs effectively, without fighting or hurting each other. The teenage years can be a challenge but the skills to navigate through those years can be learned!

Most family problems are the result of ineffective communication and ineffective boundaries. The process of family therapy is often educational as each family member learns how to honestly share thoughts and feelings while allowing others to do the same. My work with families is dynamic and results oriented. I will help you work toward intimacy while respecting each other's individuality.

Dysfunction of some sort exists in every family. The key to change is not blame but taking personal responsibility for your part in the mix and seeking to change your own influence in the family. I've worked with parents and teens who struggle with communication and respect issues and have been blessed in helping families emerge out of the most trying of circumstances and grow closer as a result.

You and your family deserve better! I will help everyone gain a better understanding as to what is going on while simultaneously helping everyone work toward solutions that can be implemented today.

When one person is experiencing stress, it affects the entire family system. Family relationships are an important part of your emotional and psychological health and development. Even when the issues is an "individual problem," often times involving the family can facilitate the healing and lead to life long change and development. Rather than power and control, I focus on communication and emotional attachment.

Dr. Keller utilizes family therapy when appropriate. In working with children and teens, dysfunctional family dynamics are a major contributing factor in the development of symptoms of anxiety, depression,substance abuse, and academic underachievment. Improving empathic communication within the family system can play an important role in the treatment of a variety of psychological conditions. Dr. Keller attemts to utilize the family as a support system to help patients recover from emotionally painfull experiences. Family therapy is often used as an adjunct to individual therapy. Dr. Keller may refer to another therapist for family therapy while he is treating an individual patient.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Family members have a need to feel they are included and are free to become the person they are meant to be. In healthy families, the adults are willing take responsibility for their actions and interact appropriately with others. Parents are also willing to attend to the needs of infants, adolescents, and minors in ways that are commensurate with their stage of development. Family therapy serves to facilitate a respectful and loving atmosphere where individuals are encouraged toward individual growth and development. A family must anticipate changes over time. Family therapy encourages each family member toward adaption and growth.
