I use a family systems approach when working with families. I work with families in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. It is suggested that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of their family, as the family is an emotional unit. By working with families we can see patterns that are sometimes dysfunctional. Families who are able to see their dysfunction are able to make the changes that bring about healthy relationships within their unit.

Often times we don't realize the impact our birth families have on how we function on a day to day basis and the difficulties we face. Take this opportunity to explore the dynamics of your childhood, learn how your relationships with immediate and extended family members has impacted your approach to current relationships, work, changes in life and potential stressors.

Family therapy sessions aim to strengthen all members of the family so they can work out problems together. Often, if one family member is identified as having an illness, the cause can be traced back to a larger family problem. If the person with the illness is treated while the rest of the family does not change, then the symptoms will persist. Family therapy breaks these cycles by teaching everyone to better interact with one another.

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.

Family therapy helps strengthen connections within the family and increases well-being. It does this by improving communication, by understanding patterns that can lead to conflict, by increasing each member's ability to work together as a team, and by strengthening those things the family unit is already doing well. It can be really beneficial for families feeling stuck and at a loss for how to move forward in building those bridges. Please reach out and we can talk more about how to create the change you want.

Families can benefit from therapy as change is a constant and often may be difficult. Even if only one family member is struggling with a physical or mental health issue/ illness, the entire family is often directly affected. I have a great deal of experience in family therapy and can assist in unpacking the struggles that can lead to one of more members of the family experiencing depression, anxiety, & distancing. Often a family is impacted by significant struggles such as job security, household duties, child/adolescent changes, marital discord, etc., and can create struggles in communication. Life transitions can lead to problem areas; roles often change as well within the family system.

The origin of family issues usually begins with the issues the parents or caregivers bring to the families. These are often passed down from generation to generation and are sometimes referred to as family lineage wounding. Still, there are many cultural forces that can impact children independent of their family relationships - illness, physical or emotional traumas outside of the home, peer relationships, influence of social media. The list goes on. Developing communication, empathy & cooperation skills are essential for creating a healthy family system. I love facilitating relationships. I can help restore harmony to your family or help you cultivate it for the first time:)!

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....

I am trained in family systems. When families are in trouble, blended families especially, I like to start with getting everyone's ideas about what the problem is from their perspective. Then, ask each member of the family to tell what it is they want, what are they not getting, that they need. Then, we create solutions together. We unravel dysfunctional dynamics and put the "fun" back into the family!

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.

Each person in a family has a voice and each person in a family has an impact. I am careful to make certain that the family looks at all the members and how they all interact as a family unit. It is important that each member is respected. We look at how the family is not in a state of health due to choices that the family is making. We work together toward connection, understanding, and growth for all memebers. Unhealthy alliances and interactions are acknowledged.

Families are the places where we should find the love and support to face the world and all its challenges. However, sometimes families loose their way due to poor communication and misunderstandings , anger, acting out behaviors, hurt feelings and lack of knowledge. Maya Angelou has said: "People do what they know; when they know better, they do better." My plan for families is to help them know better so they can do better. Where there is loving-kindness and a will to make change the future seems brighter.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my education, training, and experience has had an emphasis on the family system. When working with families, a focus on the structure of the family, roles, rules, boundaries, and communication are areas included in our work together. Families of origin, extended families, and blended families can participate in family therapy and I find it beneficial when we can include all involved so everyone has a voice.
