Family therapy is not about shame and blame. It is a wonderful way to look at the system and how the system operates. There are strengths and weaknesses within all families. In family therapy focus is put on understanding family interactions and the forces that reinforce positive interaction or may be contributing to failure causing pain and hurt. In family therapy, family members becomes aware of unhealthy interactions and dynamics. They are then better able to recognize what needs to change and therefore improve the functioning of the family system.

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.

Our approach to family therapy includes examination of individual members of the family. It is frequently observed that a family member who may have a psychiatric disorder is a source of conflict in the family. If that individual or individuals are not identified, it is unlikely that family therapy will work. So the first step is to rule out serious psychiatric disorders in the family. Our approach is to make an effective change in individuals and then work with the group because we believe that a machine can not work efficiently if all parts don't work equally well.

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 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 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.

If you are struggling in a close relationship with conflict, distance and/or withdrawal, or feel that there is no longer an emotional connection with your partner or other family members, it can be helpful to work with a therapist. It is not just as easy as “how you communicate.” Therapy can help you take an objective look at emotional, thinking and behavioral patterns that perhaps no longer are effective and test new methods of interaction to improve your relationships. This can be applied in your relationships with your spouse, your children, parents and friends, neighbors and work colleagues.

I primarily work with children and teens on an individual basis, but sometimes find that family work is necessary. I find it most helpful when the relationship between child and caregiver is strained and needs to be repaired and strengthened. Family therapy can also be helpful when the family has difficulty communicating at home and attempts to do so result in intense fighting. Family therapy compliments individual therapy very well and allows the parent to have an active role in their child's healing journey.

Given the importance of the understanding and addressing the larger social environment, I also offer family counseling. Although some clients choose to enter family therapy as the first choice of treatment, other times family work is incorporated after a period of individual, child, or couples therapy. I can assist families, large or small, in addressing issues that have previously caused conflict between family members. Common issues addressed for family therapies include: • Parent-Child Conflict • Parenting Adopted or Step-Children • Family Communication Problems • Defiant, Angry, or Isolated Children • Mourning and Issues of Loss • Caring for Aging Family Members

Life is complicated. It is hard to create and maintain healthy relationships with those we love the most. There are many different thoughts and feelings, from the past and present, that exist in all of our interactions with one another. It isn’t always simple, whether we are trying to effectively communicate feelings, establish rules for the household, navigate the waters of intimacy, guide our children toward a successful future or simply attempting to provide a healthy meal while working, studying, and cleaning. The world and our family lives are increasingly more complex. Though we all have the tools within ourselves and within our relationships to create thelives we want. Through our psychotherapy approaches whether parenting coaching, couples or...(view profile to read more)
