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.

Family therapy is incredibly helpful for families experiencing stress, discord, arguments, grief and loss, as well as other life transitions. I provide family sessions for families who wish to process certain experiences, learn about patterns, and support one another through a difficult time. I allow each family member become understood as an individual as well as their role within the family dynamic/system, while we collaborate in finding effective solutions.

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.

In family therapy I treat the dynamic of the relationship between family members. We all have a deep need to belong and feel accepted by others. This starts in our family of origin. If things are preventing us from feeling accepted by our families we seek other places to feel that connection. By helping each person feel heard, understood and accepted by their family members we can create significant change.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
