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.

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.

Family relationships are so important to each family member and helps build other relationships as individual grow. I help families learn about healthy communication skills, effective use of words and body language and increase quality time together. Parents learn how to better relate to children but still use effective parenting skills and rules and expectations. Children learn to follow the expectations and respectfully respond to requests and rules. Together the family increases respect, love and work as a team!

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.

Once we have improved overall communication in the home problems that do come up will be resolved much faster and with noticeably less stress.

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.

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.

In 32808 - Nearby to Forest City.

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.
