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.

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.

We will identify goals that your family would like to work on, and can spend sessions focusing on improving in specific areas identified. Using Systems therapy and Emotionally-Focused therapy, I will focus on identifying how individual and family needs may coincide or conflict with each other, and help your family learn new patterns of interacting with each other.

While not primarily a family therapist, I will assist families seeking counsel for parenting, blended family and substance abuse issues. In addition, I will work with families seeking therapeutic support dealing with grief and loss, or those seeking healing from extended family or family of origin issues. I've also assisted families seeking to resolve issues between generations.

An especially stressful time in the family is when their children enter the "raging hormone" stage of adolescence just as when the parents are jumbled in a state of exhaustion. When we put together an emotionally worn out parents and insolent teen-agers, we have got a perfect storm brewing. A control strategy often fails to resolve issues when the attachment needs of both ends are "injured", leading to “attachment distress.” Carefully assessing the family conflict from the perspective of attachment and structural analysis, a family therapist will not blame anyone in the family, but work to rebuild an emotionally secure family with each of its member’s needs taken into consideration.

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'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.

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.
