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.

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.

There are many different approaches to family therapy. As a clinician, I look at the family relationships within, behaviors, and patterns as they are shown within the therapy session. I help clients to see how intergenerational patterns can also play a role in their current dynamic and offer a non judgmental and nurturing environment for family members to work through their conflict and towards a more healthy relationship.

I'm a family man myself in a long term marriage where we raised two sons and now we're grandparents. I've " been there, done that" on so many family issues where respectfully resolving differences and conflict is needed for family growth. As a professional family therapist I enjoy helping families grow to enjoy themselves more fully. My approach is open, conversational, andgoal oriented. I work with families of older teens, young adults, families dealing with elder issues and with family businesses. I also see young families where the couple, the parents, need to find a new life pattern incorporating raising young children and while still enjoying their life as friends and lovers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Family therapy is complex nowadays exacerbated by high divorce rates and blended families. There's an necessary built-in awareness and empathy that has to exist in order to help these families. It requires more than knowledge and understanding, but rather an ability to read, interpret and redirect not one individual but an entire group of individuals who are invested in each other and needing insight, guidance and intervention. Not easy. Family Systems theory drives my work in this realm. It's all about the relationship and the impact each person has on the other. I've been trained in Gottman Couples Therapy - a leading expert in this area.

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 work with families whose interactions and communications need improvement or are outright dysfunctional. For example, in a family with an out of control child, it is easy to blame the family stress entirely on the child. However, the way parents or siblings react or respond to the troubled child often compounds the stress in the household. I have worked with parents and children, as well as grandparents and children, as well as grandparents and grandchildren.
