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.

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 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.

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.

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.

As a marriage and family therapist I enjoy working with couples, families, and blended families. Sometimes couples need help to work through issues such as infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, sexual issues, defensiveness, in-law problems, step-parent or ex-spouse issues just to name a few. I appreciate the effectiveness of emotionally focused couples therapy. This approach promotes compassion and emotional intimacy for couples. I also utilize the Prepare/Enrich Inventory, which helps couples identify their strengths and areas of growth. Then we process though the results of you inventory. Whether you are engaged or are looking to improve your marriage couple counseling can help.

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.

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.

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.

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.
