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.

Today family can mean different things to different people. Each family structure is challenged with their own set of difficulties and problems. Whether you are a blended family, single parent family due to divorce or loss, adoptive family, same sex parents, or traditional, we recognize family dynamics can be complicated. Together we will work to develop strong communication skills between each family member, while nurturing and solidifying the family unit. We will work to overcome conflict, heal the wounds of the past, build parenting skills and create a safe environment where all family members can be heard.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I work with families and couples in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. Family therapy has evolved from its early definition of the family in traditional terms. Today we have many kinds of “non-traditional families” comprised of people who may or may not be related by blood or marriage. My concept of the family is defined in terms of people that are involved in committed, long-term relationships and roles that are organized in a way that is strongly supportive of each other and aimed at promoting growth and well-being. I view the family as a relational system and family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.

As a mother of two, I am constantly witnessing my theoretical background as a counsellor flying out the window. Parenting tests our mettle by the minute, and even the hardiest of us all, get bent. I use an attachment based parenting approach, whereby our bond and connection to our children is primary. Together we work to establish this trust and connection, and all else follows, not necessarily easily, but with conscious choice and understanding of our actions and reactions. I use a collaborative approach for older families, attempting to engage all family members in responsibility and unity.

Family therapy provides the opportunity to explore how unfinished business or unhealed loss in your family of origin affects how you cope with life challenges in the present. We will explore family history and major events in your family, sometimes going back generations, to find out how family members were affected by those events, and how you may be affected by them in your life now. We also have the opportunity to find the health, strength and wisdom in the family through the generations.

My hope for clients who are experiencing challenges in their family relationships is that they will create greater understanding and acceptance of one another. Clients will build healthy communication skills that will assist them in resolving current issues, as well as preventing future conflicts from occurring. It is my hope that each family member will develop a willingness to accept the uniqueness of the other members in the family, as well as a willingness to listen and understand one another. Through this process of learning how to come together with openness, each person will be affirmed that he/she matters and has a voice in the family.

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

For years, I've worked with families to help them find solutions to the conflicts that often get in the way of healthy interactions between members. I find this work so rewarding, mainly because I've witnessed a great deal of healing within family units. I'm very experienced and have a great deal of knowledge about family 'systems'. Yes, systems they are. Even when members attempt to escape by taking a 'geographical cure', they usually find themselves as enmeshed in the system as they always were. No, as a long-term solution, avoidance simply doesn't work! I can help you and your family get to the root of the conflict(s), and let go of the past so you can finally move forward with peace.

In family therapy everyone has a voice. Going around the circle in the family and hearing everyone's opinion and thoughts about the situation that the family is dealing with is how healing occurs. Families are viewed as a system, what one family member does or does not do impacts the whole family. Understanding this is how family members help heal each other.

Family therapy can be very powerful because it is typical that a family can live together and yet not really communicate openly about issues that are affecting everyone. This lack of communication is usually because of fear of upsetting one of the family members or there may be some topics which have become "taboo" and everyone knows this. At this point we are dealing with the proverbial pink elephant in the room. Family therapy helps to open up communication in a safe and loving manner. It can help everyone get clarity about the next step in a separation or divorce scenario and can help people express their feelings in a compassionate and accepting environment.

Residential Addiction Program

In V6C 3T3 - Nearby to Anmore.

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.

In V3A 4G4 - Nearby to Anmore.

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.

In working with a family, there are many beneficial activities: helping people to build awareness of themselves and their role in the family, how to move out of reaction (attack or flee), learn new skills, develop healthy coping habits, learn 'focusing' as a self help tool and to deepen relationships, building group strength, etc. I work with the whole family as well as with the individuals.

Family therapy is the cornerstone to how we cope with relationships in our lives. This process focuses on relationships within the family unit. It looks at how the family has helped to form communication styles, relationships and conflict. As a therapist, I help people find connections between their present relationships and the ones within their family of origin. I work with the whole family system to help mediate concerns, and create more peaceful relationships.

Registered Clinical Counselor, Hypnotherapist, Spiritual Life Coach

In V7M 3N9 - Nearby to Anmore.

I use both Adlerian Psychology and Family Systems when working with clients. The Adlerian approach assists individuals in developing self-awareness and behaviours responsible for perception of themselves and others in their lives. By examining habit patterns individuals gain a sense of self -worth along with the change needed that results in healing. With the systemic approach, individuals are best understood through assessing the interactions among family members. An individual's behaviour is seen as an outcome of how the family system functions and therefore the focus in interpersonal relationships. Change is best facilitated by working with and considering the family system as a whole.
