As a marriage and family therapist I enjoy working with couples, families, and blended families. Sometimes couples need help to work through issues such as infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, sexual issues, defensiveness, in-law problems, step-parent or ex-spouse issues just to name a few. I appreciate the effectiveness of emotionally focused couples therapy. This approach promotes compassion and emotional intimacy for couples. I also utilize the Prepare/Enrich Inventory, which helps couples identify their strengths and areas of growth. Then we process though the results of you inventory. Whether you are engaged or are looking to improve your marriage couple counseling can help.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 believe family relationships are the foundation of our experiences in the world. When one member of a family is hurting, not only is it likely that others are as well, but there is great potential in the ability of the family system to help in the healing process. For the first few sessions, I say “the more the better!” I will either continue seeing everyone at once, or change it session by session, seeing one member or a few members together - depending on the family and the difficulties they present with. I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

Even when engaging in individual client work, there are often family 'ghosts' in the therapy room with us. Our family of origin issues play out in all areas of our lives: personal, relational, and even professional. Without our awareness, our family upbringing significantly impacts how we relate to others, may dictate parenting and vocational roles, and impacts our sense of purpose and self-worth. From a family systemic approach, no one person is singled out as the 'cause' of the presenting problem. Rather, struggles are viewed as a result the collective interactions of all involved family members. Thus, our work focuses on collaborative goal setting, change, and family member growth.

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.

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. I 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. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule for family counseling at mnonlinecounseling.com.
