There are many problems that can occur in our family relationships. it's very easy for conflict to occur in marriage, with children, family of origin, or even in-laws. As a therapist working with families for many years I've found that many problems can be solved through respectful communication of deeper feelings while developing greater understanding and appreciation of other family members. At the same time, there are some family situations with extremely difficult, defensive personalities that only create continued frustration, so that the best solution is to set clear boundaries for limiting the impact of such toxic personalities.

Family therapy is needed when the family isn't working well. Maybe there are a lot of fights between parents and children or maybe one of the family members is using drugs or alcohol. Family therapy is a place where the whole family can talk about what is bothering them. Sometimes people want more closeness and sometimes family members want more distance. Family therapy is a great way to identify and sort out these issues.

My training is in Marriage and Family Therapy. In a nutshell, this means that I believe that the family that you grew up in, and the relationship patterns and rules that affected your family, have a profound impact on who you are today. For instance, how did your family deal with conflict? Were they stand off-ish or affectionate? Critical or nurturing? Where you allowed to fail in your family? Were you accepted for being you? All of these questions help us explore your past and how it relates to your life in the present. It also helps guide you in creating goals, and changing what isn’t working effectively for you in your life right now.

My work with families may actually include just one family member, two, or several. It could involve working with family members who aren't physically in the room, as with the help of technology, we can invite others to participate in the process via phone or Skype. Not all family members will participate in each session - this varies depending on where we're at in the process. Feedback I've received from families is that they appreciate the respect and understanding they receive. Rather than feeling judged or blamed, they appreciate the process of identifying their values, resolving problems and challenges, and creating new narratives of healthier relationships.

Sometimes when I think about family therapy I picture the scene from "While You Were Sleeping" when they are at the family dinner and everyone is talking about their own thing, people are talking over each other, and sometimes it's even humorous. Whenever we have multiple members of a family together, we are dealing with that many more feelings, needs, beliefs, and hurts. It can be difficult to hear another's hurt over the voices in our heads screaming about our own stuff. What I love about bringing a family together is helping each person's voice be present and creating new space for understanding and connection.

Family therapy is highly effective for depression, addictions, anxiety, unresolved grief, ADHD, coping with health problems, and parenting problems for all kinds of childhood and adolescent problems. My approach to family therapy involves helping a family to communicate and listen more effectively, better manage feelings, learn to better negotiate, effectively set limits, develop problem-solving skills, reduce stress as well as increase cohesion in your family. Family therapy often uses homework assignments to help the family practice the skills that are taught in the session. My approach is low key, supportive and focuses on practical things that family member can do resolve problems.

Family therapists are uniquely trained. We view the health of the family as the goal, no matter who shows up for therapy. For example, if a couple comes for therapy because they’re fighting a lot, I will ask “Where are the kids when you’re fighting? Do you know how it’s is affecting each of them?” The idea is that everyone in a family is deeply affected by actions, beliefs, and interactions they witness between family members.

I strongly believe that family therapy is one of the most effective ways to create change quickly. When everyone is on the same page and working toward the same goals, it is much easier to achieve symptom-relief. Family therapy is particularly important when working with kids and teens as they often don't have enough control over their lives to make significant improvements on their own. I trained in marriage and family therapy so this form of counseling is a specialty for me and a significant factor in why I decided to become a therapist.

Family therapy is a unique experience to invite any or all family members to join at various times during the counseling process, as determined by the family and the therapist. Families work as a system -- what one person does affects the rest of the family, and vice versa. Family therapy allows an opportunity to come together to work on and understand the unique dynamics of your family. We have worked with parents and children, as well as adult married couples and in laws, blended families, and more.

As a MFT, family therapy entails looking at the family as a unit or "system", and identifying how the members' interactions affect the whole family. This approach takes pressure off the identified problem and invites families to work together for the benefit of everyone. Family therapy can benefit families going through significant changes/challenges such as divorce, loss, illness, conflicts, blended families,adoption, natural disasters and many more. Many families are greatly strengthened and have experience a sense of togetherness by working toward the goal of famly unity and peace. There are specific skills used in family therapy resulting in an effective and powerful experience.

We all have a story about how our parents messed us up. Kids essentially come out of the womb looking to building their case against their parents. And parents, we just try to do better than our parents did. The problem is: what we need and what our kids need are different, and it's often impossible to bridge that gap on our own. Whether the issue stems from divorce, a new life stage, sibling conflict, or something else entirely, I help your family to overcome gaps in knowledge, empathy, communication, and understanding so individuals can come together, or accept that a specific piece of the family puzzle might just never be a fit.
