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.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Families can be complicated, and being able to speak about issues in a safe environment is an excellent way to work towards more respectful and supportive relationships. It is important to hear the voice and story of each family member in order to understand the full picture of the problem. I believe a successful home life depends on the quality of the relationships and sometimes communication can get in the way of that. Using a Systemic Family Therapy model the goal is to understand unhelpful patterns and support families in breaking them.
