In family therapy, Dan works with families and couples in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. The family system of interaction is studied to determine what dysfunctions are present and then the counsellor utilizes his skills to influence conversations in a way that catalyses the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider system. Whether a problem is seen as an individual or family issue, the involvement of families in the solution is often beneficial.

How much does your family mean to you? Obviously a lot or you wouldn't be reading this right now. Does your family make you feel like you have to be perfect? Are sick to death of not being able to be you. Or were you raised by an extremely dysfunctional family and are having troubles not knowing what it looks like not to over compensate for your past. Did you grow up with parents where anything less than an "A" you were shunned and never have a spare minute to yourself or something was wrong with you. Possibly you grew up with three parents two moms and a dad, maybe just a mom or a dad who had no idea what it was like to be a parent. Break those cycles. Take a new approach Healthy lifestyle

Most of my training has been in family therapy. I love having the opportunity of working with the whole family as it is often so productive and rewarding! I have training in several different modalities which provides me with the opportunity to mix and match as needed when trying to help families solve complicated issues! It is often much more effective working with the complete family rather than pieces of the family.

I work with families through an attachment lens and help identify problematic patterns, breakdowns in communication and ways of healing attachment wounds and ruptures. More and more in our fast paced world technology is creating problems in our relationships and with our children. I help parents effectively deal with aggression, anger and impulsive acting out behaviour as well as children find ways to appropriately deal with their anger and frustration. Mental health is a family problem and each family member plays a role keeping a family stuck and sick or moving them towards better communication, an improved quality of connection and achieving vitality and unity within the family.

Families are unique with a number of dynamics that need to be taken into consideration when providing therapy. I will alter my therapeutic approach to what a family requires. I am formally trained in Emotion-focused Family Therapy. I will provide families with the skills to communicate effectively and work through past hurts. I also provide support to parents to increase skills when assisting their child through difficult times (ex. mental health, substance use, grief and loss). The result is that family members are able to communicate honestly and effectively and support one another. Overall the family will have a stronger bond.

Trouble does not occur in a vacuum. It is common for families to have a scapegoat on whom the disharmony in the home can be blamed but in reality, there are many other roles being played by family members, creating a dysfunctional balance. If we align one tire but leave the rest to wobble, it is only a matter of time before our repairs have amounted to nothing. The more involved a family is in the process, the better the chances for real change to occur.

Humans are social beings, we are wired to live and connect with other humans. The first humans we come into contact with are the families we grow up in. Using attachment theory, I work with clients to help understand where they came from and how this has shaped experiences with themselves, others, and how they see the world. Families are systems and it is important to view them in this way - whether I am working with one individual family member or multiple, I approach this work by continually understanding how one piece of the system affects the others.

Imagine a family as a tree with branches, roots, trunk representing parts of the immediate and extended family. When working with families, all elements are considered. Usually there is a request for family therapy due to one of it's members in crisis, often a child. However, when an analysis of need is done it becomes apparent that more than one member of the family needs help in adjusting, growing and learning new behaviours. Clients contact me for a variety of reasons: to improve communications, solve family problems, support in special situations such as death, divorce, marriage, illness, child or adolescent issues.

The first step in my family therapy is figure out what has changed in the dynamics of the family. There are many reasons that cause a family to become unbalanced. There are times that roles may need to change and change in itself can be very difficult for many people. It may be that separate sessions are held so that this one person can learn to communicate their thoughts and feelings to the rest of the family. The goal is to always have the family work together to learn to become a cohesive and authentic unit.
