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.

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.

Does your adolescent feel out of control? Do you want to improve parenting skills or learn how to better support your kids? Is it hard to share parenting responsibilities? Families come to family therapy for many different reasons—conflict in the home, communication difficulties, divorce, grief, blended/step-parent families, teens acting out, adoptive family concerns, co-parenting challenges, mental health problems for any family members, and health problems or terminal illness. 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
