Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Director of Thrive

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.

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..

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

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.

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 utilize a variety of Cognitive Behavioral, Object Relations, Internal Family Systems, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approaches, which center on Mindfulness skills to strengthen authentic contact with Self and Others. Emotion Regulation, and effective Communication are often key areas which benefit. This serves as a foundation for resolving conflicts, and facilitates a healthy balance in roles and relationships.

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.
