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.

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.

Family counseling can be of great benefit to those families who struggle with communicating openly and experience frequent conflicts as a result. Lack of clear communication and understanding of needs can result in strained family relationships. Family counseling helps to identify the roadblocks to having better interactions and can improve relationships within the family system.

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.

No family relationships are perfect - what is important is that the family unit understand how to communicate in a healthy manner, as well as to understand each other's needs. I can help you learn how to communicate effectively, listen to each other, and start to forgive old wounds. I work with couples, adolescents, and young children and can arrange individual sessions and/or family sessions, depending on your specific situation.

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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Through family therapy, each member begins to understand and learn better ways to interact with each other and resolve conflicts. You will examine your family’s ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions. It is common to explore family roles, rules and behavior patterns in order to identify issues that contribute to conflict and discover new ways to work through these issues. Family therapy may help you identify your family’s strengths and weaknesses. These changes will effect each individual within the family and there will be shifts in the whole system that hopefully lead to a positive resolution. Call today.
