My clinical approach to Family Therapy begins with an evaluation to determine and understand the issues within the family context. It is the goal of therapy to provide a safe environment for family members to express their concerns about the family dynamic. It is at the beginning of therapy that treatment goals are determined. Emotional needs for each family member will be explored. Treatment consists of teaching conflict resolution and communication skills to help family members be able to address conflict more productively and with less distress. My clinical approach consists of instilling insight for families about the relational dynamic within the family.

Families enter therapy for different reasons. Many families are seeking help for an immediate problem or crisis, while others need support changing long standing negative patterns. Family therapy can be beneficial as, it provides opportunities to identify and build on strengths, improve communication, and better understand roles and dynamics that shape the family system. I have experience working with families in crisis and am skilled at assisting parents and children/adolescents increase positive communication and connectivity.

Families can be very complex and sometimes hard to understand with so many different roles that each family member may play. Family therapy would be very helpful with understanding each member of the family and how each one functions on a daily basis. Therapy would also provide tools to learn how to listen and have more effective communication with each other.

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.

When our relationship becomes unhappy, it always affects and impacts the entire family. Working with couples to improve the relationship is important but we cannot overlook the impact to the family. In family therapy we explore problems that have negatively impacted the family from wherever it has come. We will help each member of the family to understand what is happening, how it has impacted them and explore methods of adjustment and remediation. We will identify problems and work to resolve them.

A healthy family is much like owning and maintaining a car. That is, if something is wrong with the car, the car won't run properly. Same goes for families. If one person is having difficulties then it affects the entire family. Family therapy helps everyone in the family work better together by addressing all the problems that are getting in the way.

Although most therapists in California have a license in Marriage and Family Counseling, most of those therapists don’t actually do family counseling. Because we have over 25 therapists at the La Vie Counseling Center we have a wide range of specialties, and one of them is family counseling. We have therapists who are equipped to work with your entire family to open lines of communication, set better boundaries and restructure relationships that have needed change for years. If your family needs help, give us a call and one of our family therapists will start the process of change that is long overdue.

Family conflict can cause a great amount of distress in your life, making it hard to function. I can provide an opportunity for families to sort through their issues in a safe place, with someone who has the training/experience to teach healthy communication skills in order to make progress on resolving the issues the family is facing. My goal is to restore harmony to the family and allow them to thrive and be a source of support and comfort for each other, rather than a source of pain and conflict. It takes courage to change, but if the circumstances have become overwhelming, change is essential for things to improve, and the first step is to be brave enough to reach out for help.

To my mind, nothing is more important than supporting families in raising emotionally healthy children. In our fast-paced, high-anxiety culture, it can be hard for parents to know how best to create a nurturing environment for their children. I encourage parents to spend both quality and quantity time with their kids, to set and hold limits so that the children feel safe and secure and to resolve parental conflicts to that they don't contribute to family tension. Sometimes I work with the parents alone (not the children) and this can be quite effective. At other times it helps to bring in the entire family to observe and change family dynamics.
