Our understanding of families and desire for how families should function stem from our earliest expereinces within our own families. Sometimes these expereinces don't fit the new relationships we enter into and new rules and roles need to be developed. These evolving understandings of family will explore areas of communication, conflict managment, emotional support, resolving differences, and strengthening internal intimacy maps.

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.

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.

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 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 trained therapists would like to work with you and your family to improve communication, learn better conflict resolution skills and become better at caring for each other. Each family member has their unique issue and role in the family. We want to help each individual contribute to the health of the family.

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 primarily work with children and teens on an individual basis, but sometimes find that family work is necessary. I find it most helpful when the relationship between child and caregiver is strained and needs to be repaired and strengthened. Family therapy can also be helpful when the family has difficulty communicating at home and attempts to do so result in intense fighting. Family therapy compliments individual therapy very well and allows the parent to have an active role in their child's healing journey.

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. Through our psychotherapy approaches whether parenting coaching, couples or...(view profile to read more)

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 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.

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.

Family therapy can be extremely beneficial in restoring the peace back into relationships within the family that are not currently working, due to any number of constraints. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I encourage more members of the family to be involved in the therapeutic process to restore relationships both inside the therapy space, and to use the tools learned in therapy together to outside of therapy and in the true context of the relationship.
