Helping families experience harmony and healthy connection is a priority of my practice. Effective communication is what resolves conflicts and builds relationships. Without effective communication as the foundation, all efforts to resolve family conflicts fall short and become only temporary bandaids. In my approach with families, I start with the primary caregivers to assess the degree of distress and begin the process of learning and practicing effective communication. Once the primary caregivers become effective communicators, the other family members learn by example. Effective communication helps each family member feel that they matter and creates a sense of collaboration.

I work with parenting and family issues, but usually within the context of the parental dyad, or with an individual client. It is definitely possible to make changes within the family by making changes within self - or by learning new strategies to implement - or by learning to co-parent more effectively or more peacefully. Occasionally I will bring a family together to enhance communication or clarify issues.

When doing family therapy it is important to recognize that the client is the family itself. To learn how the family functions and to adjust the system of family to increase the harmony among all the members. If an individual in the family has a mental health concern that needs to be treated separately that well be referred out to one of our therapists but the family system can have considerable effect on the emotional health of any person within the family.

I practice family therapy from an attachment perspective. Understanding how a family works and how the attachments function is a critical part of moving from a hurtful family to a family that is close and supportive. It takes work. Sometimes difficult discussions result in turning points within a family that allows them to move forward, grow closer, and build on the family's strengths.
