Licensed Marriage Family Counselor

The family therapy I do is based largely on Family Systems theory of counseling, as well as adding aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that deal with the thoughts we think about each other and ourselves in the family unit. We talk a lot about roles and the expectations we have for each other. We practice ways of talking to one another and expressing out own feelings so we can each be heard and validated. Sometimes, we find it necessary to process family losses and disappointments, as well as learning to begin the process of forgiving.

I provide family therapy to help families better communicate, reconnect and understand each other. We tend to think that families are supposed to inherently get along and know how to talk to each other. The truth is that behavioral and communication patterns tend to get passed down from generation to generation in families, that these patterns are often unconscious and that these patterns can be really unhelpful sometimes. Family therapy offers a chance to unearth and recognize these patterns and to have new, more helpful and more productive experiences with each other. Let's talk about how family therapy could help your family become more connected and supportive of one another.

Family counseling is a most valuable opportunity for helping families in crisis as well as families who may be going through a life transition. Families can become socially, emotionally and psychologically dangerous, confusing, and even internally devastating. Families that are experiencing dysfunctional changes including addictions, emotional and mental illness, abandonment, fierce arguments, new family members, departing family members, new family rules, power relationships and family power changes that happen in an unprepared manner can create emotional traumas of significant proportions. Family counseling serves to restructure a families operation and aims to transform family dysfunction to family function.

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

When working with families my goal is to nurture and facilitate growth and change. I involve the family in creating their own solutions. By the use of experiential actitivites and emotionally focused therapy I work to develop healthy communication patterns and stimulate authentic communication of feelings. Through the process of therapy the goal is to create a family that can adapt to change, a family in which each member can develop to be the best they can be and can share and communicate feelings in a environment that is conducive to creating a balance between sharing, family and indivual growth.

Involving the family members in therapy can be extremely helpful in dealing with issues such as anger, co-parenting, and addiction. I also work with adolescents and their parents by bringing them together into sessions so that everyone can be heard in a supportive setting. Family members who have different communication styles can benefit from being in a therapeutic setting so that all voices can be heard and understood.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Family therapists are trained to look at family dynamics and to work on relationships, treating the family as a whole instead of each individual separately. We know that a family can be a wonderful source of healing, but it can also be a tremendous source of pain. Healthy relationships take a lot of work. It’s not always easy to share our lives, so family therapy aims to help build strong and satisfying relationships. Family plays a role in who we individually are and it can adapt and build resiliency by showing support, understanding, connecting, and finding new ways of relating. Family therapy allows the family to connect in moments of pain and explore new family roles and behavior.

A family is like a mobile, it takes balance to make it work well. Balance with work and play, balance with parents and children's needs, talking and listening (that is a biggie). We all need to be heard even if we do not agree with another person. Parents need to have consequences when the kids do not follow the rules of the home. Without consequences the kids keep repeating the same things. Children need eye contact from their parents. There are simple helps like these that will make a beautiful difference in your family life.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

The family is a unit, a system of sorts. When one member of the system is struggling, the whole system is impacted. While it is always helpful to enlist counseling support for the member of the family that is in crisis, it is also important to bring the entire family together to help heal and strengthen the system. Family counseling helps to improve communication and conflict resolution skills in the family unit. This helps to increase feelings of intimacy and connectedness among members of the family. It is also helpful for families navigating transitions in their life i.e. a move, death of a grandparent, child leaving home, divorce, etc..
