I offer families with emotional and hormonal teenagers a place to come to find rest and peace. Raising teenagers can be very hard work but with your hard work and determination, no family is without hope. I've worked with teenagers for many years now and have a heart for the difficult and confusing time of life that they are in. They will find my office to be a place where they feel safe sharing what they are experiencing which can lead to more openness and change.

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.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I utilize Imago concepts and tools to teach family members powerful communication techniques. While using these skills, I guide families to understand each other at a deeper level. This creates the space for family members to interact with each other in a more respectful, caring and nurturing manner. These techniques are very different than conventional family therapy techniques and may or may not be suited to your specific family issues. Imago is very suited to families where members are not feeling heard, supported or respected. Please call to discuss your particular situation.

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,

I work with family counseling when my primary client is the adolescent / teen. In adolescent therapy family dynamics are often critical for an adolescent's issue to be fully addressed. Therapy with adolescents / teens are one of my practice specialties. Adolescence can be a difficult stage in life as they are going through their process of “individuation”. Adolescents face increased academic and social pressures just at a time when they are often less open to parental advice. Parents often struggle with dealing with these changes. For effective therapy it is paramount that the adolescent and the psychotherapist have a good rapport.

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

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....

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.

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.

Therapy for Families is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Family Dynamics are a key focus at our practice.
