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.

In your family, do you feel stuck in a vicious cycle of hurt feelings, defensive words, and worry that things just might never change? Sometimes when we are triggered, we might do or say something we regret, and it's usually toward the ones we love the most. Family therapy can help you read between the lines, becoming more aware and mindful of the true meanings behind our behaviours and words. From this awareness, you can practice greater acceptance, empathy, accountability, and forgiveness and learn to grow individually, but still together as a whole.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

As children or adults it can be really challenging to just plain get along with brothers, sisters, children and parents! Who else knows how to push our buttons better? Conflict in families is to some extent normal and necessary. Find out how to have healthy conflict management skills to be able to elicit the love and care you need from your family to offer it in return. Families of all types of configurations will learn about being an ally for each other as we work towards respect, love, collaborative problem solving and mutual understanding.

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.

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.
