The dynamics of family are different than any other relationship we experience. Family members know us better than anyone. They know how to push our buttons, and they know our every weakness. Family members each need to share a common goal of respect (give and receive) and equally important is the ability to speak and be heard. Effective communication is lacking in struggling families and family counseling helps to restore the balance.

People seek Family Therapy for myriad reasons: major life changes, such as: divorce, reblending families, a major health crisis, a death, or problems that are ongoing, such as: parent-child conflict, parental conflict, behavior problems, communication problems, developmental challenges at any point (Development is life long! You can have a developmental crisis at any time; think of retirement and aging!) In today's culture, divorce is common, and it is common for multiple households to share parenting demands and schedules. These are ripe grounds for high emotions and conflict. It isn't just the kids who get caught up in the middle; we all do. Learn how to spare suffering for everyone; learn

We work to nurture change and development of effective interaction between family members, as family relationships are a significant factor in psychological health. Our therapists believe that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an "individual" or "family" issue, involving families in solutions is often beneficial through direct participation in the therapy session. The family may be immediately related, or may include strongly supportive, long-term relationships between people who may or may not be related by blood or marriage.

There are many issues that can arise in a family setting that can affect the family dynamic and cause emotional issues for different members of the family. Children are at the highest risk to be affected by these family issues. One of the main problems that arises are attachment issues, either becoming too dependent on a parent, or not forming enough of an attachment with a parent. After a divorce you may decide to remarry. This is another major change for both you and your children. A therapist can be very effective at finding out what is troubling your child and help them deal with their emotions.

Families have communication styles that may not equal collaborative communication. Using Family Systems Therapy theory research, I can help your family develop effective communication and still have family members retain their true person. Families have a way of caring for family members through positive attachment and you are shown how to attach positively as a family system.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

As a family counselor I am committed to finding and supporting the voices of all family members, with special attention to the ways in which family members maintain rigid, fixed assumptions about each other. My Identity Renegotiation approach helps people to collaborate and eliminate behavioral and emotional problems created by new developmental phases, new relationships, stepfamily formation, new parenthood, disability, job loss, deaths, health crises, educational disruptions, and retirement.

Masters Level Psychologist

I do my best to mediate, to help family members find their way back or heal the hurts of childhood or estrangements of adulthood. Prefer working with adult family members to restore relationships. Grown children still need the parents to fix the difficulties encountered growing up. I believe it is the adults' responsibility to maintain order in a family.

Stress and conflict in families is common, despite the popular images of cohesive families, all living together in harmony. Whether one notices it or not, families operate as a system; each member has their roll and habitual way of interacting. My way of working with your family is to respectfully reveal and discuss these ways of interacting, while providing the tools for healthy ways of relating. A family can achieve a reasonable level of mutual respect and harmony.

How families interact with each other will greatly affect their success and happiness. I teach families how to interact in healthy ways through effective communication. Discipline is usually a major issue. Along with this, parents often need help to have their children be accountable and responsible for their words and behavior. Good parenting is an important issue in our society.

Our family relationships can bring us great fulfillment and happiness; sometimes family can also be a source of pain. Lack of communication and poor communication can lead to major misunderstandings between family members. Our family knows our strengths and shortcomings better than anyone else. Psychotherapy can help if you are experiencing conflict in your family, if members get stuck in certain roles or patterns of behavior with each other, or if you have estrangement between family members. By teaching communication skills, I can help you let go of longstanding issues and struggles and get back to positive loving relationships with each other.

We are all travelers on a journey called Life. Sometimes we stumble or feel lost when we encounter obstacles and crossroads along the way. Each person has the opportunity to seek a path toward happiness, but many of us carry baggage that becomes excessively burdensome. Baggage can manifest in many guises including: hand-me-down core beliefs, destructive lifestyle patterns, poor communication, dysfunctional relationships, unhealthy habits and coping strategies.
