Family therapy is about nurturing change and influencing development within intimate relationships. Each family is made up of systems of interactions between the members. One of the goals of therapy is to influence conversations in a way that catalyzes strengths, wisdom, and support within the system. The emphasis in family therapy is on communication, spontaneity, and creativity.

The troubles of individuals and couples can affect whole families. Though I do not invite families in as a group I often work one-on-one with the children, parents and siblings of clients. Also, I might meet with combinations such as a mother and daughter or maybe brothers and sisters. Parenting and blending families are big challenges for many. Some people are upset by financial or trust issues or want to improve communication skills. Counseling helps you gain insight and understanding into how families function. You will learn new skills and increase in self esteem and confidence. You can achieve the goal of making the changes you need to make your family life more satisfying.

Often a family arrives with an identified patient, that is, in agreement that one member in particular is the problem in the family. Together, we investigate how this family member serves a purpose in the family system overall and how all members function to keep this person in the role of the problem member. From here we explore the roles that all the family members are playing and whether these roles are desirable or not. If not, we consider how to make changes to help the family system function better overall. Often changing one part of the system creates change in the rest of the system too. In this process, each member must feel understood, respected and valued as part of the whole

Families face many challenges together that can include grief and loss, addictions, separation and divorce, life transitions and communication. Each member and your family as a whole, already has strength and insight into these challenges. Each member also has hopes and ideas for creating more connection to one another. It is important to begin the therapy process by understanding these unique strengths, insights and needs, in order to develop the direction forward. As we work together, we may meet individually, in pairs and/or as a group throughout the process. My extensive experience working with children and youth in the school system, creates inclusivity with younger family members.

Every family is unique but every family I have ever worked with has difficulty balancing togetherness and separateness. Blended families have an even greater challenge. I will help you identify patterns and practices that limit closeness and intimacy and I will assist all members to better differentiate in order to realize authentic togetherness while respecting personal boundaries and the need for self.

Family dynamics can be a complicated and sensitive balance within a home. This can be made increasingly complicated by divorce, blended families, individual parenting, spiritual values, health issues and much more. Counseling can provide family members a neutral voice and a place to be heard when fighting and arguing is impacting daily functioning and happiness, of one or more family members. We also help develop necessary tools to resolve conflict in a healthy way, bringing peace and harmony back to everyday lives.

I work with families who are struggling to understand dementia and the changes that it brings. There are many associated challenges with dementia and family/kinship systems. Often families and kinship-circles are challenged to 'be on the same page' regarding where a person with a dementia is at cognitively. This can result in conflict. Other times family members need to create a 'caregiving plan' with one another and require help from a facilitator/mediator. I can offer support in the work of bringing family together under such circumstances.

I work with individuals that have a loved one displaying addictive behaviour. This can be anyone from a family member to a friend. Often loved ones of those with an addiction are "lost in the chaos" and their feelings are minimized. In truth, loving someone with an addiction can be awful. I work with loved ones to understand their personal boundaries, how to set them and communicate them clearly. We will work towards you "stepping back" from your loved ones addiction and learning to care for yourself again.
