Keeping the family strong means that you have a strong support system around you. I work with the family to help members better understand the system that they have created, how it is functioning, and how it is serving them. The goal is to understand the system by assessing its strengths and weaknesses to better use it to support and sustain its members.

Family systems are complex in nature. Each person has various roles and each person has perspectives of the roles of other family members. There can sometimes be misunderstandings about the different roles each person fills or is expected to fill. It is imperative to overcome and challenge the preconceived roles each person has about themselves within the family system.

Family life can be both deeply enjoyable & extremely painful...differing opinions, single parenting, the stresses of finances, parenting issues, adolescent rough spots, working through the painful process and recovery in divorce, differing lifestyles, career challenges, workaholism, overwhelming commitments, drug abuse, boomeranging children in a down economy-have great impact on family life. Some walk on egg shells while others show explosive emotions-or both. Whatever the situation, my clients experience a safe environment where everyone is given respect for their point of view. Gaining skills & workable way that at minimum everyone can “live with” & potentially heal & thrive is my focus

My approach to the healing of the family is to work with each individual in the family system bringing healing from damaged emotions. When this is accomplished, the family is able to relate from an emotionally healthy perspective. I also do temperament analysis which enables me to understand and share the unique temperament of each family member. Creation Therapy (temperament analysis) gives you your unique creation genetically coded into you at the time of your conception. Your temperament determines how you perceive God, yourself and others. CT identifies your strengths and your weaknesses. CT identifies your needs and how to get them met. Do not wait.

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.

Everyone has a role in a family - whether it was a chosen role or assigned to you by your parents. Discovering your role, and whether you want to continue in the role is truly up to you. I can help with setting boundaries, and with those "walking on eggshells" relationships. Family relationships can be entrenched and hard to navigate. I can help untangle, understand and heal these relationships.

For me, family therapy can include any combination of individuals in your life required to resolve an issue of concern for you. I've worked with employees and business owners, parents and adult children, in-laws, blended families, neighbors, best friends, and numerous other combinations. My focus is on meeting with those who are important to you to create win/win outcomes.

In family therapy, the family itself is the client. That's because each individual member is as important as the rest in forming the family and each one is playing a key part in the family's situation. Members of a family share an emotional history and sometimes this history (or the past) gets carried into the present, often to an extent that causes unhappiness or misunderstanding. Communication is another key factor. Often, just pointing out and clearing up communication patterns can of itself allow much healing (as well as prevention of future unnecessary conflicts).

Families can be challenging as there are many different personalities all trying to get along with each other, while also trying to get their own needs met. Families can easily become chaotic and disengaged due to unresolved conflicts over the years. Depending on the presenting problems, I may work with all of the family members together, individually or the parents by themselves. My primary goal is help the family become as functional as possible, while helping each of the family members live happy and healthy lives. Depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma can all create an imbalance in the family system and my job is properly diagnose the problems and create an effective treatment plan.

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.
