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 approach Family Therapy from a systems perspective. I encourage accountability for all members to recognize their part in the unhelpful patterns being played out within the home. I provide tools and techniques that are helpful for changing the parts of "the system" that are not working, while connecting positively with each member in the process.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
