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.

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.

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.

Family life can be very difficult because of the number of personalities at work in one home. Acceptance is one of the many important keys to living in an open and safe home. Learning what roles are in play in the home and adopting new styles of interaction is also important. Power struggles tend to be one of the pitfalls to families who want to live in harmony. Learning to better communicate with openness and calmness allows for problem solving to take place.

We are all social beings that come from a family system. It is through growing up in a system that we learn how to socialize with others. There are many things that affect us as individuals as well as the family as a whole within the different dynamics of the systems we live in. I meet individuals and families where they are at and seek to understand the strengths & weaknesses of the system & work with them to achieve time-framed & realistic goals for healthier functioning. Awareness, understanding, boundaries & effective communication are just a few of the dynamics I address to strengthen individuals and relationships in the family system.

When working with children and adolescents, family therapy is often a part of the treatment plan since a child's or adolescent's behavior impacts a family and vice versa. I use a systems approach to family therapy and often explore the communication patterns, roles, and rules of the family. I help families examine the interactions and/or dynamics of the family that are working and the patterns and/or interactions that are not.

My goal in working with couples and families is to restore hope and a love to battered relationships. I believe in using a mix of practical assessment skills, creativity and humor with a genuine commitment to marriage and families. In addition, I lovingly challenge individuals to look at themselves and identify what is holding them back from fully loving each other. I offer dynamic and powerful trainings and assessments that will propel families and couples forward more quickly. My heart is to help couples and parents once again experience grace to see their loved ones the way God does.

Family therapy needs to be engaging for it to be helpful. It can be daunting, with some family members not feeling safe enough to say what they truly feel. Each family member deserves to be understood, and to be a part of something special. The family therapist needs to connect with each member of the family. Encouraging humor, creativity, and stretching comfort levels are all part of the process.
