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.

The family is the nexus of how each individual learns to see themselves and interact with the world. The experiences we have in relation with each person in our family unit is of great importance to how we engage in the world-at-large. If your family needs help communicating, is going through a difficult time, has experienced trauma or is at a loss for how to cope with ongoing concerns, please contact me to engage in thoughtful and communicative discussion.

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.

The family is the building block of society. We all want good families but life is harder than it appears on TV, and there isn't always 30 minute solutions.

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.

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.

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.

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.
