Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the family unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the others, and as such, conflict often occurs. Family therapy allows a safe environment for all members to feel respected and heard. Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving individual and family goals in session.

An interactive family therapy approach is utilized to engage all the family members regardless of age. The family will explore their interactions with each other as well as how each family member reacts in their own way to family stressors. The family will then create a plan in regard to how the family can create change in the the household to enhance the family environment.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

As a family therapist I subscribe to a system based modality. I believe it is imperative for any family that all lines of communication must remain open and productive between members. My clients can expect to learn that the appropriate processing of feelings honestly in therapy is the cornerstone for their family healing. Restoration of full family function is my only goal.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06880 - Nearby to Norwalk.

In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I have served as the emotional and verbal connection between family members. Modeling healthy dialogue and building emotional trust and intimacy, I facilitate family exercises. Having each member describe how their brain works, neurotypical or neuroatypical, and their emotional temperament, allows family members to know each other from the inside out. Each person describes what they need from the other to feel more understood, approved of, and loved. Pairing family members up to become partners in change to work collaboratively and collectively in building a healthy family culture for ongoing comfort and unity, has been a primary focus of my practice.

Family can be a wonderful source of strength and love, but the dynamism of so many individuals and their own needs and desires can also create different and new challenges. My goal as a therapist that works with both individuals and couples is to help you understand your family dynamics and needs so that I can provide you with the tools and techniques to thrive within your family life as it is now.

We're shaped by our relationships with our family members for life. Healthy families share certain core traits. In families that thrive, people share a willingness to change and to own their part in creating conflict, yet feel safe enough to express differences in feelings and beliefs. Whether a family is struggling with chronic conflict or emotional distance, the process of family therapy is a powerful vehicle for change. I help families increase awareness of current patterns and develop new ways of relating and interacting. While the process of family therapy is different for each family, the goals remain the same: to improve communication, increase trust, and strengthen family bonds.

Families that work well together as a unit provide healthy boundaries and structure. As a structural therapist, I will help family members and those who are in close relationship with them, to foster change by differentiation of self thereby, reducing emotional entanglements and negative problematic behaviors. Families will learn how to rely on their strengths to reduce internal stress and conflict. They will also learn how to improve their internal family systems and ways interacting between family members. To further promote behavioral changes, I will help the family members to increase their awareness of self and promote family cohesion.
