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.

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.

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.

Different from the individual counseling, Dr. Ego's model of Family Therapy gives support to the members of the family, and motivates them to talk to one another in order to resolve their conflict. She listens to each family member's viewpoint on the issue, and sets goals in cooperation with everyone involved to meet their needs and expectations. This ensures that everyone is heard and validated. The Word of God is the foundation for therapy.

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,

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 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.
