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

Family is ideally a source of support and encouragement that provides its members a strong dependable foundation. Sadly, when conflict arises many families feel a fracturing of their foundation and are unsure how to repair it. I assist families in identifying the source(s) of discord and work with the family as a group to identify treatment goals aimed at repairing or achieving family harmony.

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.

The word family can evoke a myriad of emotions ranging from safe and warm to scary and confusing. As parents, we bring baggage, good and bad, to our current family experience. Our children, with their unique personalities and needs, impact the home, also for the good and bad. If you are seeking family therapy, you have a recognized a need for a change in your home's dynamics. My years of experience as a family therapist will benefit you as we work to set limits and boundaries to build the structure your family needs to thrive.

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.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), a treatment program for young children with behavioral difficulties (e.g., aggression, non-compliance, defiance, and temper tantrums) that focuses on promoting positive parent-child relationships and interactions and teaching parents effective child management skills. Parents who go through the PCIT program can expect to receive teaching and coaching sessions in two phases. The first phase focuses on Relationship Enhancement, or child directed interaction skill building. Parents are taught and coached how to use specific interaction strategies during short periods of play to reinforce positive behaviors.

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.

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.

When one member of the family is using drugs, has defiant behavior, or a conduct disorder . . . the entire family spins out of control. My strategies help families end the chaos and find peace. When a crisis intervention is necessary I have the skills and the team to respond quickly. I am trained in many types of family therapy and use an integrative approach to resolving conflict.

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.

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.

Families respond very positively to an objective person who allows each participant to be heard. When we have more pieces of the puzzle all working together in my office, we begin to see the real shape of the problem, not just the picture the stronger members of the family project. Then we can work together on what is real and see everyone benefit from the counseling. I'd love to help your family!!!
