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.

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.

Living in families is difficult. Even the best families have their days. My approach to family therapy involves examining the dynamics of relationships (e.g. roles, communication patterns) in order to assist each member to grow in healthier interactions. I subscribe to an understanding of the family as a system. In other words, no one person is the cause of current difficulties.

Our families of origin are where we learn how to see the world, people and relationships. When families encounter significant stress or change - such as the loss of a member of or a change in status through divorce or remarriage - it can be difficult to regain equilibrium. Often it is reassuring for families to learn that what they are dealing with is normal, and given some coping strategies they can regain their good functioning. Some families need help with communication issues, appropriate boundaries, parenting strategies, or dealing with aging parents or members with alcohol and drug issues. Whatever the case may be, creater deeper understanding between family members is always key.
