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.

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.

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 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.

All families are different and unique and all families experience periods of difficulty and disconnectedness. It can sometimes take the help of an outside perspective to assist families with identifying dysfunctional patterns and dynamics that exist within a family to try to bring better cohesion, communication, and unity to the family unit. I can help with exploring underlying difficulties that exist within family units, help families talk to and listen to each other more effectively, and work with you to create a more peaceful and overall happier family unit.

When a member of a family becomes ill or disabled, the entire family will be affected. Confusion, fear, anxiety and even anger can occur - even after the person recovers - such as with a cancer survivor. With my Registered Nursing and Counseling background I can help families understand some of the changes that are taking place due to the illness. Talking about what each member is experiencing can help all understand each other and lead to finding ways to handle the uncertainty. When you have a plan for coping with the illness or effects of the illness, tensions can decrease, and the family can find a "new normal" - a new way of being together. Different, but still good - still family

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.

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
