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.

Family is like a big machine. The machine can work only if all parts play their roles and their efficiency in playing their parts is optimal. No matter how good a machine may be even one part of the machine does not work, it is likely that the rest of the machine won't work. My approach in family therapy is to make sure that all parts work in an optimal fashion.

Our family is here to help your family. Effective family therapy techniques involve the entire family in the diagnosis of problems as well as the short-term and long-term treatment options. Our goal is to help return the family to a healthy unit. Each individual family member is an extension of the family unit and cannot be treated for family issues with the exclusion of other members.

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.

The family is the nexus of how each individual learns to see themselves and interact with the world. The experiences we have in relation with each person in our family unit is of great importance to how we engage in the world-at-large. If your family needs help communicating, is going through a difficult time, has experienced trauma or is at a loss for how to cope with ongoing concerns, please contact me to engage in thoughtful and communicative discussion.

You might seek family therapy in response to a stressful event or situation such as death of a loved one, divorce, a change in family structure, problems with one of the children, or perhaps you are having problems communicating. Collaboration among family members is an important goal of family therapy, as is improvement in connection, improved communication, and a mindset of problem solving rather than blaming one individual in the family.

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 Therapist

Families bring a special challenge to therapy. Both individuals have their own ideas of what is the correct way to do things as well as their own issues. Add children and there are several more layers with which to work. Open communication is the key to trying to help families and couples deal with all the complications of relationships. Teens, addictions, blended families all complicate the very complex relationships in families.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.
