The family is the crucible from which we all emerge, for good and for bad. Family extends back generations, and we are influenced, one way or another, by everyone that came before us. We inherit genetic tendencies and traits, learn ways of acting, thinking, feeling and relating, and we grow our own unique self within a group of oddball people we call our family. We have a roll and function within this family, a roll that helps form our personality. Again, for good and for bad. Family therapy is about bringing into awareness the dynamic nature of the relationships in the family, and to make more conscious decisions about how to negotiate the multitude of issues.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,

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.

A family is a dynamic system, often seen as an entity in and of itself with various parts. Each individual in the family is also a part of the family system. Some therapists provide counseling for families by having the entire family present in each session in order to work with the dynamic as a whole. Sometimes therapists will work with members of the family separately or in pairs depending on the issues that are presented. At Thrive Counseling, we take a prescriptive approach and structure the format of the sessions around what that unique family needs. At the base for working with families is a goal of using activities that facilitate a shift in the dynamics within the family, introducing new....

One individual alone can be extremely complex and difficult to understand. What happens when you have a number of complex people living together under one roof? Absolute chaos! Through family therapy, I help family members to understand each other better and even more importantly, to appreciate how each individual contributes to the family dynamic. Individuals evolve and change overtime and in turn, the family system experiences dramatic shifts as well. This can often be confusing! With the help of a family therapist, your family does not need to struggle alone. A patient and gentle objective listener can educate, guide, and assist you in overcoming

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.

Do you feel like your family has gotten out of control and you do not know what to do about it? Is there a lack of communication, anger, or disrespect between family members? Allow me to provide a space of freedom where you and your family can come to explore struggles and find obtainable solutions. There will be no finger pointing or blame, just me shedding light on perspectives maybe not seen.

When I provide therapy to families I ensure every family member's voice is heard in order to reach a equal ground towards mutual goal(s). I provide time for each family member to meet with me separately to share their thoughts and feelings regarding presenting issues that they and the family are struggling with. I then meet with the family as a whole to design goals on how to bridge the gap between healthier ways to communicate in order to solve family problems and create a better functioning environment for the family to thrive in.
