Typically, family therapy will bring the entire family together in therapy sessions. However, it may be that individuals in the family also see the therapist alone. There may also be times when individuals who are not a member of the family (such as a teacher or school counselor) participate in a therapy session with the family if their participation would be of benefit to the family. We can help your family learn how to better solve problems and how to better express thoughts and feelings. In family therapy, family members will learn about family roles and rules. Family members will examine behavior patterns and learn to identify issues that cause conflict.

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.

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.

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.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

The focus of my family therapy work is the family as a whole. Working on the relationship between family members is more effective than just treating the person that is supposed to be in need of treatment. From my perspective, family therapy work sees individuals in relationships to others. As a result, the attention shifts from the symptomatic individual and problem is seen as the family as a whole. The goal of my family therapy work is to help establish a “functional family” – one in which needs and the desired goals of closeness, identity, self-expression, and meaning are met.

Through family counseling, you can understand family dynamics that have impacted all of your relationships. Our families-of-origin are the training ground for our life skills. Communication skills are one example and are learned in our families; they can be relearned in therapy. Through various therapeutic approaches and techniques, I will assist you in creating a more loving and harmonious family system.

Every family is unique and yet every family has their own struggles. At HOPE Therapy and Wellness Center, we work with families struggling with addictions, behavioral problems, or relational problems. A family is a unit and if there is trouble with one area of the family, it will impact the entire family. That is where family therapy can be helpful. At HOPE we work with families to improve the relationships within the family as well as improve the functioning of the family members.

Family Therapy may take many forms. Generally, the configurations I work with best are those involving 1-4 individuals. My aim is to facilitate better connections & ways of operating within the context of their family systems. [When situations involve younger children or larger groups, directly participating in family therapy, I refer them to colleagues whose training, experience and expertise are better suited to serve them.] When family systems are fractured or in states of angry, fearful or hurtful disconnect, the wounding & scar-tissue can be profound and can last for years or even generations. When the stakes are so high, for so many, can you afford not to try to promote healing?

Every family member is affected by the behaviors of the other members. Although there may be an “identified patient” (the one with the biggest and most obvious problems), those behaviors are in some ways supported by the actions of others. I help each family member to understand his or her role within the family, to communicate in healthy ways, and to resolve problems so the family move can forward and remain connected. Conflict is a part of life, but when it is resolved successfully it can bring families closer rather than dividing them. As a parent, you will learn to function with an appropriate level of authority, while children learn to thrive within your family’s unique system.

Families have as many dynamics as there are members. Each family has its own system to handle life's challenges. Sometimes, some of these systems do not operate effectively. The goal of family therapy is to help families understand the systems used, how they are not helping, and learn new skills to better equip the family to provide a safe and secure home for all to thrive
