Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking. Contact us for an innovative neuroscience solution to family dysfunction. Kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

As human beings, we have a natural need and desire to be connected to others. We also have an equally strong need to be an autonomous self. Learning to balance these seemingly oppositional forces can be quite a task, especially when you consider that the primary place we attempt to learn these skills is within the context of our family unit. If your family is experiencing some type of relational upheaval there is a good chance that the system has lost its balance and would benefit from a relational realignment. If your family system is feeling a little out of sorts, please give us a call. At Chrysalis Connections we specialize in helping families rebalance, reconnect and heal.

Do you feel disconnected from your wife or kids? Does it feel like you’ve lost control of your home? Or have you experienced something difficult within your family that’s not been resolved? If so, I can help. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I’m an expert in relationships, and have been trained to identify the patterns within families that aren’t working, develop healthier ones, improve communication and understanding, and help families forge a new path forward. This often looks like a combination of family sessions, parent sessions, and individual sessions. I provide online therapy over HIPAA-secure video, and if given the opportunity, would be honored to serve your family.

Our family is here to help your family. Effective family therapy techniques involve the entire family in the diagnosis of problems as well as the short-term and long-term treatment options. Our goal is to help return the family to a healthy unit. Each individual family member is an extension of the family unit and cannot be treated for family issues with the exclusion of other members.

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.
