As one who understands that our realities are suspended in evolving situations such as relationships known as the family system, the reverberations of what takes place here and now—between us—may be infinite (generation to generation). I am a co-collaborator with family members in a process of creating and transforming meaning from problem talk to exploring alternative possibilities. I work with individuals, families, and couples to better enhance family issues. I have several years of experience including multiple ways to approach problems.

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.

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.

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.

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.
