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.

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.

Despite the best intentions of ourselves and our family members, we are often tangled in patterns of invalidation, rejection, frustration and blame. It can feel so messy that we explode in anger, collapse in sadness or numb out to avoid the whole thing. As a family therapist, I offer a safe and non-judgmental space to untangle confusion, respect and honour each individual’s unique identity and feelings while helping to identify bigger ‘systems’ patterns that keep you stuck in pain and finger-pointing. I will help to smooth out communication, make room for wants and needs and to heal the old wounds.

I offer a therapy modality called Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) which involves building skills and insights that help parents and caregivers become their loved ones coach, as a way of addressing challenging behaviours and diffusing strong feelings such as anxiety or anger. If there is more than one parent/caregiver involved in the therapy, we can also explore the ways that your caregiving styles influence and interact with one another, while strengthening your ability to stay united and feeling supported. Sometimes advanced caregiving skills are needed to diffuse stress and maintain balance in a family. Therapy with me will get you there.
