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.

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.

Are you struggling with troublesome behaviors that continue to come up with no relief in sight? Regardless of the origin of the problem and if it's considered to be a specific person's issue of family problems, the solution often involves the family together to address it. As a therapist, I will help you to identify those disruptive patterns that seem to repeat and assist with finding the inherent strengths that exist within the family system.

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.

Often times families have conflicts that repeat over and over and parents try the same strategies but don't seem to see any improvement in their lives. Through counseling we can identify negative or disruptive patterns that exist in those familial relationships and work on making changes to stop those patterns from repeating. My goal is to build positive relationships up again to where they were and focus on positive changes that will stick and become permanent.

Bruce Christensen, Ph. D.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.

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.

Family life can be very difficult because of the number of personalities at work in one home. Acceptance is one of the many important keys to living in an open and safe home. Learning what roles are in play in the home and adopting new styles of interaction is also important. Power struggles tend to be one of the pitfalls to families who want to live in harmony. Learning to better communicate with openness and calmness allows for problem solving to take place.
