Families have their own unique story. Each member, usually unknowingly, is assigned a role and is expected to fulfill that role. Sometimes the fit is good, sometimes a disaster. Helping family members to understand why they do the things they do is always challenging and enlightening. Family systems resemble a dance. It is often an ungainly dance, but it is theirs. It is helpful to discover the flow, rhythm and essence of each particular dance.

As a family therapist, I approach a family as an absolutely fundamental - vital system. I work with a family from a multigenerational perspective using its wisdom and learning from attempted solutions – from what was not working. We are born to a family system, it is our practice field and a place where we grow, develop, mature, and also the place that we leave to apply everything that we absorbed and learned in our own family system. In a family therapy I guide family members to understand how their family works, what is each member’s role, potential, and benefit, how the family members balance each other, how to communicate, care, respect, appreciate, solve conflicts, and promote strengths.

Why can't we all just get along? Most families have probably asked that question at some point in time. The reality is that families are dynamic relationships--constantly changing. The way you relate to one another today will likely be different from yesterday. Families are also made up of people--people who are often very different from one another--and grace is required when dealing with people. Finally, many families today are "blended families"--meaning that mom and/or dad have children from outside of their relationship with one another. Whatever your circumstances, we would love to meet your family and teach you how to embrace one another as God intended.

Families are a whole, we each play our part. When one member is broken, is the family whole? Do you know what words and deeds have constricted or brought freedom to family members? Are there blended family issues that cannot be mixed in even at high speed? What roles do you and other members play? What parts have been prescribed, what roles are played? Do you feel that you’re caught up in an old movie; same action, same words, and the same scene over and over again? When working with families, my main approach is Systems Therapy to strengthen the family unit. However, during treatment often times there is 1 or more family members that will need to be seen in individual therapy.

Our approach to family therapy includes examination of individual members of the family. It is frequently observed that a family member who may have a psychiatric disorder is a source of conflict in the family. If that individual or individuals are not identified, it is unlikely that family therapy will work. So the first step is to rule out serious psychiatric disorders in the family. Our approach is to make an effective change in individuals and then work with the group because we believe that a machine can not work efficiently if all parts don't work equally well.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
