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.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Savage.

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.

Family therapy is needed when the family isn't working well. Maybe there are a lot of fights between parents and children or maybe one of the family members is using drugs or alcohol. Family therapy is a place where the whole family can talk about what is bothering them. Sometimes people want more closeness and sometimes family members want more distance. Family therapy is a great way to identify and sort out these issues.

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.

As a MFT, family therapy entails looking at the family as a unit or "system", and identifying how the members' interactions affect the whole family. This approach takes pressure off the identified problem and invites families to work together for the benefit of everyone. Family therapy can benefit families going through significant changes/challenges such as divorce, loss, illness, conflicts, blended families,adoption, natural disasters and many more. Many families are greatly strengthened and have experience a sense of togetherness by working toward the goal of famly unity and peace. There are specific skills used in family therapy resulting in an effective and powerful experience.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
