In dealing with families, I strive to help to improve communication and conflict resolution techniques. Often, members of familiies mean well, but express their needs and dis-satisfactions in a way that increases conflict and turmoil. In home conflicts often escalate and lead to withdrawal or explosive incidents. A calmer, problem resolution is possible in and office setting with a neutral party. In such a setting, we are usually able to effect better listening to one another and achieve the kind of understanding and acceptance that leads to greater family harmony.

Our understanding of families and desire for how families should function stem from our earliest expereinces within our own families. Sometimes these expereinces don't fit the new relationships we enter into and new rules and roles need to be developed. These evolving understandings of family will explore areas of communication, conflict managment, emotional support, resolving differences, and strengthening internal intimacy maps.

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.

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 most important institution in society and I take great pleasure in helping a family to resolve their issues and move towards health and happiness. I understand as the mother of 4 children myself what the pressures there are for families. We are in a bad ecoonomy now and many families face economic uncertainty and stress. My focus in family therapy is to build cohesiveness and resiliance.

Family therapy focuses on improving communication and interaction in family system. This counseling commonly involves, but is not limited to, identifying parental dynamics that effect children, or vice versa. Sessions can include the family as a whole, or focus on individual therapy for the child/adolescent. The core goal of family counseling is to improve the psychological health of the whole family. Families can benefit from counseling when dealing with issues such as sibling conflict, addiction, illness, depression, financial stress and many more.

In family therapy I treat the dynamic of the relationship between family members. We all have a deep need to belong and feel accepted by others. This starts in our family of origin. If things are preventing us from feeling accepted by our families we seek other places to feel that connection. By helping each person feel heard, understood and accepted by their family members we can create significant change.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

All families face serious challenges over a life time. Are you facing stressors that are affecting the entire family? Are you having trouble coming together to resolve issues that you and your family are facing? Your family can begin to learn how to mediate stress and begin to understand how a stressful situation can affect each family member. Together, we can learn ways that your family can use to get through a crisis. How a family manages a difficult experience, handles stress, reorganizes, and moves forward with life can influence current and long-term adjustment for family members and is important for the survival and well-being of the family unit.
