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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
