When I see the family, I ask each one how they view the situation and how it affects them and the whole family. With parenting issues, I will see the child or teen alone and then the parents. I teach parents ways of listening to each other and understanding where each one is coming from. Once they validate each other, I help them problem solve using possible strategies with their child or young adult. These strategies will depend on the issue whether their child is experiencing symptoms of hyperactivity, addictions, learning processing difficulties, acting out in a new blended family, etc. Then I bring the family together for the parents to set limits on the child or young adult.

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.

A family is a living organism, and when one member is in pain or confusion the whole family unit is part of that pain or confusion--sometimes as part of the cause, and always as a potential part of the cure. I offer families help in seeing how family members may contribute to each other's suffering and, more importantly, how they can help each other reduce the suffering.

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.
