Families who are out of balance or in crisis benefit from having a safe place to speak their truths and really be heard by one another. We will uncover dynamics and "family myths" as we look at the roles each family member plays in the family. I use thereputic techniques such as family sculpting and other experiential techniques to synthesize these dynamics so the family can be guided to make shifts in the dynamics. Families will learn how to set healthy boundaries and validate one another.

Families enter into therapy with a myraid of problems. It's important to understand the roles of each indivdual present in the family and create change by collectively creating family goals and family rules. Communication is also an integral part of family therapy and also is address in session. The goal is to get the family back to homostasis...stability. It is important to know that not all families are fully functional all the time. Therefore, I help families learn ways to get back to their "normal."

While it can be interesting to explore all the roots of family problems, it can also be painful. More important, it almost never helps families to function better. Instead of dredging up the past (which wastes lots of time and money and cannot be changed), I help families to build solutions that are effective and permanent -- even if they don't fully understand how the problems developed.

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.

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.

Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period of time, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members (“Family Therapy”, 2014). The asumption in this type of therapy is that problems cannot be successfully addressed or solved without understanding the dynamics of the group. The way the family operates influences how the client’s problems formed and how they are encouraged or enabled by the other members of the family.

Lisa Palmer, PhD, LMFT, CHT

Psychotherapist/Marriage and Family Therapist

Society trains us to think very individualistically, but many of our behaviors, thoughts, actions are reactions to the complex interactions of our lives, families, relationships. Family therapy is a way of viewing problems and solutions by evaluating the bigger picture of how all the parts involved create a symptom. Family therapy techniques and interventions are designed to alter the physics of relationships to bring about solutions changing our mental or behavioral thought process and resulting in desired outcomes. Family therapy is another model of therapy with varying techniques. Contrary to popular belief, family therapy does not need to be done with whole family participation.

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.

My training in systems theory, or how to look at what is happening between people, makes for more effective therapy. Instead of looking for what's wrong with a member of the family it involves looking at all of the relationships and dynamics in the family in order to improve things as a whole. When the problems involve children and teens I believe parents have the most power to change things. Determining what changes are important and most effective in repairing things in a family is what family therapy is all about.

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.
