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.

Whether you are a new family dealing with marital issues and toddlerhood, or a blended family with teens, or a middle-aged child of an aging parent, you have the need for tools and understanding of the dynamics you are dealing with. We offer couples and families empathic support that helps sort out the conflicts and needs of each member of the family. Sometimes it may seem that one family member is the problem. What we find oftentimes, is that each one has a part to play. Simply having a skilled facilitator helps bring the difficulties into a new light of understanding. We use Non-violent Communication, art therapies, and somatic methods to support healing and resolution

Our family can be one of our greatest resource. Yet when things go badly, it can stress us terrible. Divorce can be especially difficult for families. Children may be acting out with cutting their arms or legs. Teens may be missing school without permission. Dad may drink too much. Choosing a family therapist can be difficult. You probably want someone you can trust to help you and also support you. Also, it is important to find someone who all the family members feel is fair and caring. This can be a difficult balance to strike for a therapist. Selecting a family therapist that works well with your family can make a big difference. Often, we go to a therapist during transitions like loss, moving, a child starting school, or a new step...(view profile to read more)

I offer family therapy when families are having difficulties communicating and understanding each other. Family therapy is also helpful when families are going through a difficult time and are in need of support. I provide a safe and containing therapeutic environment so family members can feel more comfortable communicating difficult feelings and thoughts. Together each family member learns how to effectively cope and resolve conflicts in a healthy manner that benefits them not only within the family, but also with other relationships in their life.

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.

Family therapy can be highly effective for conflict resolution, healing relationships, and making clear agreements that work for everyone. Many families feel more connected during, as well as after, effective counseling. Family therapy is a safe place for each family member to express their views and experience without judgement. It is important to discuss the issues that "nobody talks about" and this enables each family member to be more authentic within their family as well as in other relationships (i.e., work, school, etc.).
