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.

At times families can experience a variety of issues that create significant problems and concerns. These problems and concerns can lead to increased levels of conflict, unhappiness, anger, anxiety, avoidance, addictions, relationship deterioration and at times, criminal behaviours. Our family therapy sessions involve working with individuals and family members to assist with developing and understanding the reasons for behaviours and the dynamics of the family system and how each family member's actions affect the entire family. Strategies are developed and practised to assist with increasing positive interactions and level of family happiness.

Family therapy may involve communication training, mediation, and working with individuals within a family unit to grow closer and gain greater understanding of each other. The term 'family' does not involve just a prescribed unit, but can include any group of individuals who would like to work towards creating a space of mutual understanding and interpersonal harmony.

Registered Professional Counsellor

I have been a family counsellor for 25 yrs. I specialize in child/youth family counselling. Currently, I facilitate groups for youth that struggle with substance abuse and managing anger. My job in counsellling is to help family members identify difficulties they are experiencing and work toward resolving the underlying issues. Therapy teaches families to communicate more effectively. It's an opportunity to articulate needs, fears and find new ways to resolve anger and conflict. Family members will explore many areas such as unhealthy family patterns, boundaries, honesty, accountability and ways to bulid more closeness/connection.

Children and adolescents successfully meet most of the challenges posed by the various stages of their development. They also have incredible resiliency in the face of challenging environments and life issues. At the same time they are, however, very aware and sensitive to the stress in family life and their environments. When having difficulty coping, adolescent distress can manifest itself through difficulties in learning, relationships and in emotional & behavioural development. Children have less experiences, fewer coping skills and less control over their environment. They also have difficulty describing emotional problems.

Lisa Webster, MA CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

320 McIntosh Road, Kelowna, British Columbia

Lisa Webster sees both parents and children. While Lisa does not see the entire family at the same time, when parents deal with their reactions to their children, the children seem to respond differently. Calmer adults help children become more willing and happier. When parents aren't reacting to children's behaviour, they are better able to handle their children's reactions.

Family systems issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing family issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning.
