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.

Throughout our lives, there are numerous life circumstances that can place a strain on relationships within our families. As a therapist, I serve as a support system and a guide to help families communicate and work together more effectively to overcome what challenges them the most. 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. I am here to help your family

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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)

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.
