Our belief is that families are the soil from which people grow. Families are the place where so much of who we are is formed. We work closely with families to help them understand their patterns and how they came to be the way they are. We provide a safe place for families to come and look at how they can be better and most effectively deal with the unique challenges they face. Family therapy requires very specific and detailed skill set that can only be acquired through specific training. All of us are trained in family therapy and how to best nurture change, taking into account each family's unique needs and challenges.

I work with a lot of adolescents struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Family involvement is an important component of their treatment, as adolescence is a challenging developmental period to navigate. Adolescent clients often feel misunderstood and isolated in their experiences, so communication is an important factor in alleviating these feelings.

Family therapy can be extremely beneficial in restoring the peace back into relationships within the family that are not currently working, due to any number of constraints. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I encourage more members of the family to be involved in the therapeutic process to restore relationships both inside the therapy space, and to use the tools learned in therapy together to outside of therapy and in the true context of the relationship.

I grew up in a family too. What is it with this most necessary unit of human existence that makes it so problematic? Why can't we speak our truth to the people we ought to be closest to? I call it the Law of Inverse Emotional Risk (LIER). We are most likely to hide the truth from people whose love we most fear losing. In working with families, I have found that, at the root of most of their problems are secrets, unexpressed feelings, resentments, and blame. How do you talk about such things? There is a way. It has four steps: Take responsibility - Admit the past - Live together - Keep it going; TALK for short. If you want to learn it, call me, email me, come see me. You get a free first session and I will tell you all about it.

I work with young adults who are trying to recast and understand long standing issues with their parents and siblings. Problems between parents and adult children include academic/career expectations, divorce/separation, chronic illness, loyalty expectations and creating healthy boundaries in families. Working with each other can help foster improved listening and resolve conflicts to create solutions and deeper understanding.

I'm a family man myself in a long term marriage where we raised two sons and now we're grandparents. I've " been there, done that" on so many family issues where respectfully resolving differences and conflict is needed for family growth. As a professional family therapist I enjoy helping families grow to enjoy themselves more fully. My approach is open, conversational, andgoal oriented. I work with families of older teens, young adults, families dealing with elder issues and with family businesses. I also see young families where the couple, the parents, need to find a new life pattern incorporating raising young children and while still enjoying their life as friends and lovers.

The family is the building block of society. We all want good families but life is harder than it appears on TV, and there isn't always 30 minute solutions. Our trained therapists would like to work with you and your family to improve communication, learn better conflict resolution skills and become better at caring for each other. Each family member has their unique issue and role in the family. We want to help each individual contribute to the health of the family.

We will identify goals that your family would like to work on, and can spend sessions focusing on improving in specific areas identified. Using Systems therapy and Emotionally-Focused therapy, I will focus on identifying how individual and family needs may coincide or conflict with each other, and help your family learn new patterns of interacting with each other.

Have you ever noticed how one person's problem in the family affects everyone? This is true in all families, even the Brady Bunch! One of the reasons this occurs is because our reactions to each other often serve to "keep the problem, the problem". Working together as a family in counseling gets people off the blame-game and on to ways of relating that bring the respect back. As a specialist in family systems counseling and clinical author in professional literature I enjoy working with families of all ages in a variety of interactive/experiential methods to help family members learn how to communicate and connect. The end result is increased harmony and productivity.

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.

Families are complicated, especially in today's day and age. Children, adolescents and parents endure more stress today than any other generation before them. Therapists must not only be knowledgeable, but adapt to the changing family structures and dynamics of the modern family. Our practice at The Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center specializes in helping families bring back the joy, connection and synergy that has dwindled over the years, utilizing our own model of therapy called, Family Synergy Counseling. Families benefit by learning communication skills, develop healthier boundaries, regain respect and understanding for each member of the family, and become happier altogether.
