Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, every individual will only be as successful as the weakest part of their life. In this way, the relationship health within the family plays a key role in the happiness and success of each individual. Family therapy benefits each individual by improving interactions and relationships for everyone. This can be especially useful when facing depression, substance abuse, divorce, grief, chronic illness and even food issues or everyday issues such as communication, conflict or behavioral problems. Some emotional pain is as much a part of the family as a whole as it is to the individual and thus is best addressed in family therapy.

These challenges may include but are not limited to the following: family life transitions, such as empty nest, bringing baby home, getting a new job, job loss, and caregiver stress as well as parent-child difficulties, blended-family concerns, grieving loss of loved one, chronic illness, and separation and divorce.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Milton / Alpharetta, with more than 20 years experience, I understand the dynamics of how the actions, feelings and moods of one individual within a family can negatively affect all members of that larger group. In family therapy, I use a number of techniques, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy, to help the affected person deal with his/her issues with the support of other family members who come to understand the situations that drive the problem and how to help the individual cope with them. For Family Therapy to work best, it is important to have the cooperation, attentiveness and willingness of all members of the family. If you believe your family may benefit from open and honest...(view profile to read more)

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.

Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.

I counsel couples, children and their families through their life journeys. There are many transitions a family goes through in their journey: Pre-marital couple; newly married; a family with a newborn or children of various ages; a family divorcing or remarrying; single parenthood; mental illness; career changes; empty-nesters; retirees; adult caregivers of their parents; grieving the loss of a loved one. Whichever stage you and your family are in, I am equipped to guide you through these life transitions to make the adjustment to them smooth and healthy.

Family is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.

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,

Family is like an ecosystem. Each part interacts with the other and each part plays a unique role. There are rules, whether explicit or implicit, that are to be followed. Not all these rules may be healthy. We grow up in a family, and most times, join another in our adult lives. What we were trained to do in our original family, and what others were trained to do in theirs, comes out in our present relationships. I work with families where they are. I consider all the above when teaming up with family. So I address the individuals, the group, the past and the present with an aim toward a healthier future.
