Emotionally healthy families create an emotionally healthy world. Most of us did not grow up in a family that taught us how to communicate in a way that promotes optimal emotional health. Family therapy is an opportunity for a safe space where communication can be taught and practiced and past hurts can be healed. Some of the most powerful healing I have experienced in my work as a therapist has been in family counseling when all parties come together with the goal of understanding one another in mind. The most emotionally healthy humans are those who feel they are important to their family of origin. A family that is willing to listen to understand instead of to be right creates this.

Being a member of a family can be difficult at times. I assist parents by identifying concerns that contribute to conflict and help resolve them to improve family functioning. Treatment starts with a comprehensive assessment with each member of the family to identify important areas for improvement within each member. Significant concerns are addressed individually. I then work with the family as a unit to improve family cohesion and harmony.

In my years of practice I have been trained in Functional Family Therapy and have worked with many families suffering from conflict within their environment. I now use this training with my own therapy practice to establish healthy communication skills and coping skills between the family and create a strong foundation. I will gain a better understanding of the dynamics in the household and will work with each member to resolve issues. Each individual will benefit by achieving personal growth and utilizing this in their daily interactions.

Families can get very complex with a lot of emotions running loose. In family therapy, I will work collectively and individually to help find a solution to how the dynamics are working out among each other. Additionally, I utilize an emotion focused approach to identify feelings and how those feelings tell you how you are experiencing interactions with each other to gain understanding and insight to the family as a whole.

Families are complex systems! When your children are young or teenagers, counseling can help parents to navigate the different stages that children encounter. Family patterns of addictions, abuse, or codependency that have been passed through generations tend to generate chaos in families and at some point need to be addressed and shifted. Counseling can be very helpful in identifying these patterns, healing the wounds they have caused, and putting new ways of being into place. Family counseling can also be helpful for adult children to open dialogue with their parents, siblings, or in-laws. I serve many roles with families: mediator, navigator, translator, and supporter.

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.

Given the wide variety of family issues I have encountered over the years, I have adopted an integrated therapeutic approach. Hence, clients will receive general psychoeducation in a number of areas including: values discovery, parenting, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, boundary setting, sibling rivalry, mutual respect and accountability to mention a view. As your "group therapy leader," session time will be effectively managed. Role-plays will be utilized extensively to allow for relative freedom of expression. In addition, homework assignments are a prominent and prevalent component to our intervention strategy. Finally, priority is given to confidentiality and trust.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am specially trained in working with families. Family therapy provides some of the most notable breakthrough in a therapy setting. You do not function in a vacuum. Your behaviors, reactions, and interactions with each other have a chain reaction that affect the climate of your family. Family therapy provides an exciting opportunity to become aware of these interactions, and know each other more intimately. Frequently, this provides breakthrough and change. I will help you to utilize strengths previously ignored.

A family is a system just like a car's engine - if one part of the machine is not functioning effectively then the whole machine fails to operate properly. Family therapy is designed to discover the relationships in the family that are not working well and to restructure them or to help them communicate better so that they may be better functioning and to help the family as a whole operate in a happy, healthy, loving way.

My approach to family therapy is simple and effective. I can teach you how to talk to your teen(s) in a way that will be heard and understood. I can show your children the benefits of talking and listening to you. Once we have improved overall communication in the home problems that do come up will be resolved much faster and with noticeably less stress. You can transform your family from a source of frustration to a source of joy. Parenting and raising a family can be tough, but when done well can also be rewarding.

We are all created for relationships. Relationships bring the greatest joy and the greatest pain in life. Every relationship and family unit looks different and has unique strengths and challenges which create the ups and downs in families. From the age of 4 or 5 years old, a child already knows the "behavior" he/she must exhibit in a family unit. At age 4 or 5 or before, a child will enter the child care and or educational system. Through elementary, middle school, college / trade school, OJT, etc, we live in "required behavior." Often when an adult arrives "home," the "behaviors" may revert back to "childish behavior because of childhood beliefs." Are you ready to look at this?
