I work with families to encourage connections and also communication. Sometimes, these break down just due to business and the role of technology. Family time needs to become a priority once again. Offenses that have not been forgotten or forgiven need to be processed. Boundaries also need to be established, particularly between parents and children.

When I work with adolescents or young adults living at home, I involve the parents in therapy, as well as other family members as needed. I will meet with one or both parents as part of the initial evaluation, to obtain a history of the client's life and difficulties, as well as a family history of psychiatric illness and substance abuse. Throughout treatment, I will meet again with the parents as needed, to discuss their concerns about their child and to offer practical suggestions to reduce conflict and help the client with his/her issues. If desired by the client, we may have one or more conjoint sessions with the child and one or both parents.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

We are all relational beings, living within interactive, interpersonal systems. How we relate to our most significant others (spouse, children, parents, etc.) can sometimes lapse into unpleasant scripts, patterns and powerful undercurrents of action-reaction, negative group-think, and ineffective authority structures. Restoring and sustaining a sense of effective functioning, wellness and harmony (shalom) within family relationships can be aided by engaging the services of a professional counselor with a family systems approach. I use my skills and training to help family members learn and practice better ways to empathize, communicate, resolve conflicts, and collaborate with each other.

When people feel heard, everything changes. Thus, if a family can create an atmosphere in which every voice has its place, a great shift can occur in which the atmosphere changes from defensive to expansive, from reactionary to benevolent, from frustrated to fulfilled. Sure, change is hard, but it is also rewarding, and miraculous. There cannot be a more rewarding experience than seeing family members discover just how warm and supportive a place the family can be.

When working with children, I believe that the family has to be involved and invested in the therapeutic process in order to make the necessary changes. One family members concerns can lead to problems in the whole family. My main goal when working with families is determine what every members' goal of therapy is and see how we can bridge the differences and come to a common goal that satisfies all family members.
