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.

I enjoy seeing whole or parts of family systems. Communication skills can be improved with 2, 3 or more at a time, as long as they are a family system, including step and blended families.Sometimes 1and 1/32 hour to 2 hour sessions are needed with families, depending on the complexity. of the situation being addressed.

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.

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

Our belief is that families are the soil from which people grow. Families are the place where so much of who we are is formed. We work closely with families to help them understand their patterns and how they came to be the way they are. We provide a safe place for families to come and look at how they can be better and most effectively deal with the unique challenges they face. Family therapy requires very specific and detailed skill set that can only be acquired through specific training. All of us are trained in family therapy and how to best nurture change, taking into account each family's unique needs and challenges.

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.

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.

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.
