Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with families to help them build the greater connection that they are often looking for between members. There are stages in life that sometimes cause difficulties in family relationships such as children growing into teenagers, divorce, blended families, or couples when they become empty nesters. Learning the tools in therapy to help adjust through these life changes can be beneficial for everyone.

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 are complex. They are filled with different opinions, different habits, different values, and different thoughts about the future. They can also be filled with great joy, laughter, happiness, excitement, and teamwork. If your family isn't functioning the way you envisioned it or if you are experiencing a separation or divorce in your family I can help you navigate that change. I can also help you grow your family toward the connected and cohesive unit you've always known it could be, but never knew how to get it there.

Shoreview Mental Health Center,

Within driving distance of Excelsior

Our lives are impacted greatly by the health of our family relationships. It typically doesn't take long when working with a family for members to start demonstrating in session some of the issues that exist. We strive to search what issues lie beneath the behaviors. Breaking bad communication patterns is a common place to start. The focus is on solutions, not blame.

Family Therapist

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of Excelsior

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.

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.

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I will help your family change stuck patterns of interaction, navigate family stressors, and support members that are struggling with mental health 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.

License Marriage and Family Therapist

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!
