My specialized training in Marriage and Family therapy, with hundreds of hours of supervised relationship therapy, helps me see families as more than a collection of individuals. Frequently, families fail not simply due to character flaws or individual psychopathology, but because they don't see the effect they have on one another. Most families are made up of good people who nevertheless bring the worst out of each other. We will work to undo the negative family pattern and create new more effective ways of negotiating conflict and enriching each other.

You feel like an 'other'. You may find yourself grieving the parent or family you never had even though they may still be alive. There is a deep sadness in you. You feel alone. You desire meaningful connection but have been hurt so many times....perhaps you have faded back from contact but are not sure how to move forward in life. You are seeking guidance and support and yet, it may feel scary to feel vulnerable. I understand you may have never experienced a sense of safety to express yourself. I can help.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Oakdale.

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.

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 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.

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.

Minnesota Online Counseling

In 55110 - Nearby to Oakdale.

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

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.
