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.

Similarly to the way all the parts of a car engine function together to make the vehicle run, family members have specific roles they fill that cause the family to operate the way it does. Families will benefit from family counseling because when something is wrong within the family system, every member can benefit from change. The good news about family therapy is that when one person begins to change, it effects change in everyone.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Family Therapy can prove to be vital for blended families or families dealing with death or divorce. My approach to family therapy involves allowing each member of the family their time to talk and process the changes in their life, and then present each members views and feelings to the other members of the family. Often the issues that arise in families comes from a place of poor communication skills verses mental illness or disorders. I use emotion-based techniques along with solution-focused methods of therapy to help a family function in a healthy manner.
