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.

When working with children and youth, the therapist cannot ignore the family system in which the child lives. I work with parents in multiple ways to help support youth in treatment, which may include separate parent sessions, co-parenting sessions, systemic family therapy, or Filial Therapy, a play therapy practice that coaches and guides parents in special play sessions with their child to decrease unwanted behaviors, improve relationships and communication, increase the child's emotional vocabulary, and increase the child's self-esteem.

Mine is a relational psychodynamic approach to therapy that uses attachment theory and family systems interventions to identify problematic relationship dynamics that are interfering with the family reaching their full potential for cooperation, intimacy, and differentiation. Together, we will explore the family tree (from roots to leaves) and work to till the soil that feeds it so each individual in the family feels seen, heard, and supported in living out their best life.

I found that the skills that my Couples learn from me: how to speak and listen in a way that allows real intimacy to digest on the gut level is extremely useful in working with families. Many times family members love each other but that love does not digest. Often there is a child or teenager that is acting out and when the parents learn how to connect with their child on a deeper level, the need for the acting out behaviors goes away. Parents sometimes need help being on the same team to BOTH provide the necessary structure (rules) AND do it in a way so the child (or teen) digests the love. Your children appreciate the rules from a loving team (even if they pretend they hate them)!

You feel like an 'other'. You may find yourself grieving the parent or family you never had even though they may still be alive. There is a deep sadness in you. You feel alone. You desire meaningful connection but have been hurt so many times....perhaps you have faded back from contact but are not sure how to move forward in life. You are seeking guidance and support and yet, it may feel scary to feel vulnerable. I understand you may have never experienced a sense of safety to express yourself. I can help.

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.
