No two families were created alike. Therefore, therapy has to be customized to suit the particular dynamics of each family. Assembly-line approaches won't work. Healthy communication and individual growth within each family member as well as the entire family system are some important goals in family therapy. One family systems approach I Integrate in my counseling is that of Carl Whitaker's. This involves "authentically 'being' with the family and their anxieties rather than aloofly applying predetermined techniques." Individuation is a priority-- each member is allowed his/her own perceptions and treatment as an individual.

If you and your family aren't getting along or are having some form of difficulty, family therapy can be incredibly useful. I would help to give each family member a voice--a way to be heard, understood, and accepted. In fact, I would fight for this on behalf of each family member who feels disregarded, disrespected, or dismissed. I would help each person to feel respected and to be given a sense of dignity as we work together to improve the critically important aspect of communication--something I find wanting in many families.

Dr. Clark has extensive training and experience helping family, including eight years working as a Director of Child and Family Services for a large medical facility. Dealing with the stresses of raising children can become overwhelming, and often problem seem to repeat themselves with no hope in sight. It can be very helpful to get another point of view from an objective psychologist.

Children live in the space between their mother and father. This space is the foundational relationship where children learn that it's safe to be themselves in their full aliveness. When that space is not working, children learn defenses to survive. They can adopt acting out behaviors or simply shut down. In Couples Therapy, I help parents to clean up that space, make it sacred and give their children the chance to grow up feeling safe and happy.

Families are the places where we should find the love and support to face the world and all its challenges. However, sometimes families loose their way due to poor communication and misunderstandings , anger, acting out behaviors, hurt feelings and lack of knowledge. Maya Angelou has said: "People do what they know; when they know better, they do better." My plan for families is to help them know better so they can do better. Where there is loving-kindness and a will to make change the future seems brighter.

Problems don't exist in a vacuum, and are often triggered by our loved ones. Living in these relationships means that we can be triggered by each other, and act with increased stress and anger--which is a part of being human. There is a special type of healing that can be done when your family comes together in a safe environment and works on the health of the group. If your relationships need additional support and safety in order to move into a new, healthier way of interacting together, I'm here. If your loved ones aren't biological, but you want a safe place for your group to work out problems, I'm here for you too.

I work with alleviating trauma through working with individuals, couples, and families that are affected by trauma. I work with them to transform personal stories focused on the pains and effects of the trauma to a narrative focused on newly formed self-identity, and life meaning. Working with children and teens poses a special challenge for therapists and families because trauma can show up in a variety of ways. Children can be angry, scream, cry and yell at parents, peers, and even teachers. Children can talk back, refuse to do chores, and may even regress to earlier developmental stages (baby talking, thumb sucking, etc.). My goal is to help families manage trauma symptoms.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my education, training, and experience has had an emphasis on the family system. When working with families, a focus on the structure of the family, roles, rules, boundaries, and communication are areas included in our work together. Families of origin, extended families, and blended families can participate in family therapy and I find it beneficial when we can include all involved so everyone has a voice.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Many of our struggles are not just individually focused; they are shaped by and affect the family system around us. I have a passion for helping family relationships heal in places where they are broken, and thrive in places that are stagnant. I especially love journeying with parents and their children, strengthening bonds and decreasing family conflict. My training has predominantly been in family psychology, and I love to watch families transform together -- as individuals and as whole units.

Families represent complex systems. Given the various players and personalities, there can arise conflict, misunderstanding and strife and causes difficulties and hurt. Much of the work I do as a family therapist is to assist family members to improve their communication with each other and provide them with tools to do so. As well, if one family member is presenting as troubled or ill (either mentally or physically), the other family members are inevitably affected, as is the family structure and dynamic. Therefore, it is important to treat the who family. I take a holistic approach to the family, and focus on the system not only the identified patient.

To me, the people with whom you've chosen closeness, whether related by blood or intentional bonding, are "family." I help family members surmount problems in communication, understanding, decision-making, and boundary setting. I have also worked successfully with family businesses, or business groups that are "family-like," when dynamics become problematic. Sometimes, longstanding patterns or roles need to be addressed and adjusted. Some members may feel unheard, under-appreciated, or discounted, and need a chance to re-establish their sense of belonging within the group. I'm honored to have been part of creating family therapy breakthroughs that truly change peoples lives.

If you meet with us, we will begin therapy working with the adults to better understand their perception of the problems. Then we will work to help the adults gain insight into their part of the family dysfunction. Once those patterns change usually the children or teens respond favorably to the changes and often the acting out behaviors can be resolved fairly quickly.
