Attachment theory is at the heart of my practice with families. When one family member is struggling, the whole dynamic and tone of the unit can become unhinged. Disconnection is at the root of many family challenges, and we'll work together to discover how these disconnections can be repaired. Together, we'll establish healthy communication strategies and boundaries between family members, and unearth the values that keep the family united.

Family counselling can assist you to better understand your personal challenges, enhance your self awareness and these lead to improved relationships. Laurie believes that how you make sense of your childhood experiences has a profound effect on how you parent your own children. Therefore, having a deeper understanding of yourself can help you to create more effective and pleasurable relationships with your children, partner and with yourself.

I guide families using the information and insights from extensive studies and my own experience. If your family is hurting and whatever you have been trying doesn’t help, if it feels like you can’t win, respect has disappeared, understanding and patience are gone; your family will benefit from bringing in a professional outsider. A family is a dynamic system. Being busy with our day to day struggles, it is easy to miss what another person needs. Timing and taking into account each members' experience is crucial to reconnect. With patience and tenacity, and taking the time to clarify and learn, you can resolve what may seem a hopeless situation.

In the practice of Family Therapy we see the family as an organic unit or whole. Movement or change in one of the members has ripple effects and causes movement or change in the rest of the system. Problems are therefore a product of the relationships between the each person in the family. In our Family Therapy work we will begin to explore the role each member plays in the family. As we continue, we will begin to uncover whether that role serves the person or some other function. We will work toward creating more life-enhancing interactions so that each member of the family feels authentic and appreciated.

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.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them and their 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

The problems that originate and find expression in one person is usually an expression of the entire family system. In this approach I explore what each person does and how they act in the family system, then we wok to untangle the web so each person assumes responsibility for their part in conflicts or misunderstandings. In this way everyone benefits from the process.

Families can be complicated and those who seek counseling are demonstrating great courage and resolve. I see the family as a unit made up of various parts; I believe the most effective way to assist struggling families involves exploring all aspects without judgement or criticism but instead with compassion, curiosity. I will work to ensure each family member feels safe, heard, and respected.

What affects one member of a family affects all the members. The troubles of couples affect their children. A huge challenge is finding successful way to blend families created by new partnerships and figuring out good step parenting and step children strategies. Love and optimism turn out not to be enough to ensure happy family life. In counseling we will talk about communication, finances, trust, sexuality and many other issues. You will learn new skills and increase in self esteem and confidence. Other family units who may seek counselling are, for example, a mother and daughter or brothers and sisters. They may want to clear up misunderstandings and enjoy a more satisfying relationship.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
