Family therapy can provide a greater understanding of the dynamics of our families. Although there may be one person who is identified as the "problem" or "patient," we have found that exploring dynamics and communication styles can re calibrate the system. It is often the youngest child that brings the greatest clarity to a family session. For us, Including the parents in a child's therapy is a must. Our goal is to improve the harmony of the home.

Family therapy is about communication and safety in the family system. Balanced family leadership requires the ability to be firm, and friendly, and to set developmentally appropriate limits while remaining fair, flexible, and encouraging. In balanced families, individuality and connection to the family are both significant. Family processes can be cooperative, consistent, and caring. My humanistic approach is in presenting with “realness” and joining the family in their discussions to understand the issues at hand. My goal is towards unmasking issues and creating new meanings for the family. Often the spontaneous reactions to the present situation in the therapy room create the client’s awareness of their inner potentials and opens the channels of...(view profile to read more)

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.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I have been trained to focus family therapy on the entire family system; every member has a role and makes contributions to the balance and satisfaction within a family. An important strength of families is that they allow us to support each other as we all adapt to growth and change, as well as face challenges from outside the family, Psychotherapy can help family members understand how change is challenging relationships, and it can facilitate adaptation to these challenges and changes. The goal is re-establishing caring, supportive, and stable relationships within the family.

In family therapy, I aim to reduce distress and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. Sometimes all family members are present, but that is not always possible or necessary. By adjusting the viewpoint of problems as patterns of behaviors that need adjusting, and improving communication skills, families can strengthen and resolve conflict in a more peaceful way.

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.

Are you wondering what happened to my family? Where did I go wrong? How come we can't get along? Family therapy can be very helpful. I work with everyone in the family (mom, dad, kids, grandparents, and anyone living at home.) Using a systems approach, I teach communicate skills, look at patterns in the family, underlying issues that may cause your family to be stuck which will improve your relationships.

In many ways, I practice Family Therapy every day-even though I usually see only couples and individuals! The reason for this is because we all come from a family system, and our role and place in that system are revealed in every we relationship we have. The early attachment experiences we had as young ones set the stage for our intimate relationships later in life. It can be an illuminating experience to examine and understand the family system dynamics that you-and/or your spouse came from, thereby better understanding the context from which we came.

We need our families. If your family is in danger of disconnecting or falling apart, let's work together to lean toward each other instead of away. No one family member is ever the cause of disfunction. We each must learn our responsibility in the mix. My approach to healing families is to help each member understand how they absorb stress, and explain it to the group in a way that will be heard. Our family is our home base. Let's keep it that way by learning empathy for each other's struggles.

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.
