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.

As children we learn how relationships work from our families. Families have subtle and not-so-subtle rules about how to treat each other that get passed down from generation to generation. When these patterns result in hurt and misunderstanding, family therapy is an opportunity for change. If you're uncomfortable with how you feel in your family, or how you act with family members or loved ones, reflecting on the patterns you've learned and connecting with your emotions will help you choose how to relate, instead of being in reactive mode. I create a safe place where family members have the opportunity to learn to express needs and support each other in healthy ways.

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.

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.

Families often get stuck in dysfunctional patterns and resentments. Sometimes there is an "event" or an argument that causes a rift in the family and members are forced to take sides. We work with primary and extended families, including children and teens if appropriate. One of the main goals is to get people to operate and communicate from the logical part of their brain rather than the emotional part. This is hard without a trained, experienced, neutral third party in the room. We offer online counseling, delivered to you wherever you are. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com

In family therapy, you will learn how to communicate so that others will listen and how to listen so that others will talk. I will be very involved in the session - stopping family members when they are being mean or rude and encouraging when someone's opinion or feelings have not been heard. There are no taboo subjects and everyone in the room will be respected.

The dynamics of a family system is always rich. Each person in the system contributes to how the family functions and the whole family is greater than the sum of the parts. As one member begins to change other members will need to shift to acommadate the change. I can help guide your family in a positive direction towards more connecting relationships.

I use RLT and PACT approaches to family therapy. By teaching and managing appropriate communication, family members can learn to resolve conflict and repair relationships. Often there are member(s) who feel unheard. By slowing the communication and breaking it into parts, clients can learn to speak with clarity and learn to listen with curiosity and seek to understand without defensiveness.

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.

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.

I have considerable experience working with families. I have worked with small children, tweens, teens and parents. I believe that a combination of individual and family therapy is an approach that works. We will work together to overcome the issues you and your family are going through. Understanding you’re not alone and getting support to help problem solve and learn communication skills is a step forward. We will take the time to move out of the chaos into a more authoritative environment. Authoritative is a blending of a caring tone with structure and consistent limit setting. Together we can make it work!
