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....

Sometimes getting along at home can be difficult. Perhaps there is someone in your family making bad choices and it is hurting your heart. Or maybe it is the day-to-day miscommunications and conflict that causes so much stress. On one hand, family squabbles are a normal part of living together. On the other hand, they can be very difficult and painful. Please don't wait one more day. Family therapy or family counseling can help. And you can even if you come in by yourself if your family won't come in with you. We'd like to see if we can help you make it better.

Problematic behaviors in a child or teen are usually rooted in some disturbance of the emotional connections within the family. I can help your family reconnect with each other using an approach called Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT). EFFT rebuilds connections by helping you to understand and change the repetitive and self-reinforcing negative interactions that create distance and conflict within your family. People are empowered when they feel a secure sense of being loved. They naturally become stronger, more resilient, and more autonomous – not weak or needy. Once your child or teen feels securely connected, he or she will have a foundation on which to build positive behaviors.

All of our counselors practice Family Psychology. We understand and treat symptoms from a systems perspective. This means that many factors contribute to an problem behavior. Symptoms don't happen in a vacuum. Frequently, we invite the spouse or family members to participate in sessions. Using therapy as a safe place, we work collaboratively together to create effective solutions. Using proven methods such as behavioral contracting and family experiments, family members learn to communicate and offer mutual support through experiences. Many families are toxic. We can help you to establish strong boundaries and new behaviors that will disrupt the dominant patterns of conflict and reactions.

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.

All families develop their own unique 'dance' that is hard to discern when you are a participant. The dance steps started in our own family of origin and get recreated in our current families. Often there is an 'identified patient' that acts out what isn't processed within the family system. By entering the family system as a professional attuned to what healthy dynamics look like, I can help transform a limping, depleting family system into one that has vitality and encourages each family member to thrive and grow.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe in Systems Theory - which regards family relationships as an important factor in psychological health. I believe that regardless of the origin of the problem, clients benefit when the whole family participates in therapy. This school of thought adheres to the idea that no individual in the family is the "problem" - although he/she can often be viewed as the scapegoat in the family. "Fixing" an individual without addressing the dynamics and rules of the wider family system is not helpful for the long term well-being of the individual or the familial relationships.

I work with families who have loved ones with addiction issues and perform interventions when needed. Addiction becomes a family issue and does affect the entire family system. I also engage with clients who may need support with family unification. Each member of a family system has a perspective and is an intricate part of the family system. As such, each family members voice is important

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!

In my ten years of experience, I have been fortunate to work with many families in treatment. Studies have shown that a supportive adult in a child/teens life can make a huge difference in the outcomes of treatment. When I work with minors (11 and below) having the parent(s) involved in treatment is a necessity. When I work with a teen or someone who is 12 years and up, I work closely with parent(s) but ensure confidentiality,safety, and trust between the therapist and teen. If teen deems appropriate my aim is to always include parent in treatment as much as possible. I also offer individual session to teen parents and this can be a supportive parenting service without teen present.

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.

Family counseling is helpful with problems setting limits with children, dealing with grief, divorce, loss that can cause behavior problems, school issues, or family problems. Sometimes parents want help with boundaries for teenagers with anger issues, reblelliousness or entitlement problems. In some cases family therapy involves young adults who need support building an indepentent lifestyle and recovery from drugs or alcohol. Family therapy helps you learn how to help without enabling!
