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.

Clients benefit immediately from family therapy with me. This is because I am educated in family systems and how this works. Many clients are not aware that any behavior/attitude in one family member actually effects the entire family. All family members are interconnected, and this insight is very eye opening for people. Clients learn the extent of the effect their choices have on one another, and how choosing positive behaviors benefits the whole. Family members need to be aware that when one child's behavior improves, for instance, anothers' may become worse. This is to be expected. Knowing this can validate/support families in the healing process.

When families learn to identify and modify maladaptive patterns of relating as they are guided into challenging inflexible roles assigned or adopted by its members, the system that the family is begins to move towards a healthier and more functional unit. Moreover, becuase, often times the person identified as the problem, is nothing but the expression of the symptoms of the family which may include ineffective distribution of power and responsibility, addressing structural issues can also contribute to transform families and turn them into safer and and more balanced.

In family therapy I create a supportive environment where each family member feels comfortable expressing their views and communicating clearly what they need. As a family systems therapist, I also help family members to recognize that what they may identify as “the problem” is often a symptom of a pattern of behavior that has been set overtime. The benefits for your family will include eliminating accusations, blame and identifying effective solutions to communicate effectively. As a Certified Family Mediator I can also conduct court approved Family Mediation.

The family can be one of the most important parts of a person's life and, quite often, significantly shapes a person's worldview. The family can impact a person in both negative and positive ways, and those impacts can have lasting effects on a person's sense of well-being. When you are a member of a family, it can feel like you are part of a big hub. Imagine what it feels like when the hub is not functioning well. Family therapy is necessary to help the family be in tune with itself. When the family is in tune with itself, its members can focus their energies on living better, looking forward to spending time together rather than avoiding each other.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I strongly believe that there is no one way to handle a problem. I work with my clients to highlight what works and use that knowledge to help improve what seems to not be working. I genuinely enjoy seeing the entire family in session since it provides rich information on how a family interacts and provides insight on the resources they have to tackle whatever problems come their way.

Although I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with a Doctorate in Marriage & Family Therapy, I do not work with children under 18. I do, however, work with families with adult children. Often, parents believe their lives are being disrupted when adult children move home or when they fail to achieve (whether or not they live together). Also, many adult children believe that their parents are overreaching, etc. My approach to every situation is systemic. I help each member of the family system to adopt new behaviors that are neither childlike nor parent-like. In this way, the family system and each member in it can learn to live in harmony, whether or not they live together.

Clients will be able to better understand the dynamics of their family and how their family system works, what sustains it, what makes it strong and what makes it weak. Counseling will help the clients gain the love, respect, and honor that draws them together as a family, so they can find the joy and fulfillment of being a family. Healing and restoring relationships is an outcome of the counseling process of Family Therapy, as each individual agrees to work on strengthening and protecting themselves and each other.

Families engage in unhealthy and ineffective ways of relating that can continue for years leaving all parties feeling burdened and strung out. Gaps and distances are created to manage difficult emotions and you may need a guide to help you rebuild a broken relationship. I help families address dysfunctional patterns that interfere with the closeness they would like to obtain. I help members identify patterns used to protect and distance themselves. I assist family members in engaging in a manner that recognizes the emotional needs of the family, and foster empathy for one another's position in family conflicts.

Families consist of the most important relationships in our lives. They can also be the most difficult. Learning how to communicate as children are growing up allows the kids to form healthier relationships as they grow up. We learned how to do "family" from our families...who did what they learned. Counseling helps to becomes more aware of the tools for healthy and connecting relationships.

Dr. Weatherford may suggest family therapy to help the identified patient resolve his/her issues. The family unit is like a well balanced mobile. If one object on the mobile changes (or gets better) other members of the family may need to make changes or adjustments. The positive change in the family member may disrupt the balance of the family unit. Short courses of family therapy can well restore the homeostasis of the family unit and allow it to be more receptive to the changes in the identified patient.
