In the beginning family teaches us who we are and how to relate to others. Our family can enhance our self esteem, provide a nurturing environment for our well-being and influence our outlook on life. Parenting skills and increased understanding of child developmental stages are emphasized in younger families. As a family matures, the focus may change to accommodate life transitions. Complications may arise related to expectations, autonomy, and issues of inter-relatedness. Each family member has the ability to positively or negatively affect the lives of the other members. A healthy, resilient, family structure values both individuality and group cohesiveness. They are able to accept the na....

My style to family therapy is to look at the family system as a whole. One person's suffering can be sympomatic of the family and I can help guide the family to a healthier style of communicating, interacting and bring you closer together. Having a large family of my own gives me the added edge in understanding the challenges that are faced on a daily basis!

Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce, or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Family counseling aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals.

Each family member plays a role in the family system. Each is different and expected to act as a "team." When the team approach works, the family works at it's best. However, many family members act as though they are on opposite teams. Conflict is present, then oftentimes, detacment and rebellion. Working with a therapist as a family can help identity the role each member is playing and how they work in the family system. In a safe, respectul enviornment, a therapist will provide a place to be heard, teaching productive communication skills, offering tools and insight into the family dynamics.

I believe that families have written and unwritten rules that allow that family to function. And sometimes, there is a breakdown in how the family functions whether from a death in the family, a move, a member of the family not wanting to do her/his "job" or any other number of things. Meeting as a family can allow everyone to have a chance to speak and avoid some of the he said/she said that goes around. If you believe you and your family could benefit from some assistance and guidance, please call me at 714-432-9856.

Family relationships can be complicated and confusing. With family counseling I provide a safe environment for each member to express their perspective and feelings. I help each member of the family to recognize and understand the roles and rules that exist within their family. I will teach skills and we will do exercises to create empathy and understanding for all members. Roles and rules will be re-arranged, kept, eliminated and/or altered in order to create a healthier, safer and more nurturing family environment.

Raising our children is one of the most important things that we will ever do in life. How they turn out, how life goes for them, whether they experience joy and happiness because of their inner strength and resources, or struggle with life because of inadequate coping skills is largely in our hands. Many adults have had hundreds, if not thousands of hours of training for their profession, yet when we become parents there is virtually no training available for what most people agree is one of the most important jobs on the planet: being a parent.

Therapy focuses on the patterns of interaction between family members, and emphasizes improved communication and connection as an important factor to create change. Involving various family members in treatment helps to benefit so that everyone has a similar understanding of the issues within the relationships, and expectations of others. The most important factor within those connections is personal accountability so that each member is taking responsibility for any actions they cause to the system, versus being focused on how other members may have hurt them.

My approach to treating families begins by understanding & observing how the family functions as a unit rather than focus on individual problems which arise when this is not occurring. Families face more challenges than ever before in this fast-paced world which praises achievement and success over unity. I am passionate about families and consider it a privilege to work alongside them.

Raised in a family of seven siblings, I understand the challenges of families and the unique dynamics involved. If your family is experiencing trauma, loss from a recent death, or just has a hard time getting along, family counseling is the answer. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a proven method of improving family relationships and breaking out of the negative cycles of pain and anger.

Family Therapy is often the most beneficial when there is a family conflict or crises. Examples of family conflict are a recent divorce or separation, sibling rivalry, arguments over a living trust or will and discussing end-of-life issues. One of the most difficult situations for families to adjust to is blending families. If you have been married before and going into a second marriage with your own children, it brings a whole new set of problems . Examples of a family crises is death of a loved one, a family member of loved one getting a serious illness, or a family member going through a trauma like physical or sexual abuse, being severely bullied, victim of a crime or the like.

Family therapy is often the treatment of choice for families who are confronted with specific crisis situations, (such as death, divorce, illness, or child/adolescent issues). When the family is the client, I assess the way members interact and work to improve communication and problem-solving skills, as well as resolve the current life stressors. Each family member plays a role in the way the family interacts and is seen as a vital participant in both the healthy and dysfunctional styles of interaction. Therefore, in family counseling the goal is to assist each member to work together more effectively to create a more functional family unit.
