Your family is probably experiencing a "bad" person. As a contextual therapist, I am aware that your family is actually one unique "ecosystem". And like an ecosystem, the system balances out. In biology, we called this phenomenon "homeostasis". I am a systems expert and all systems operate under the same rules. No corporation, government, or family is exempt. I can correct this imbalance.

Families go through periods of time in which they need help. Do you feel that your family is struggling and you feel lost in how to help? I am a Family Therapist and have a unique talent of helping families find new ways to connect in meaningful ways. If your family is experiencing troubled times don't wait for it to get worse. I will help you find a way to navigate through these difficult times and learn ways of communicating so that each person feels valued, loved and accepted. I work from a systems perspective and can help you identify strengths of your family system and more importantly find ways of reconnecting in a meaningful way.

As a Family Therapist, involving the whole family is important to looking and understanding the dynamics of your unit. There will be times when all are invited for a session, with rules that hopefully promote honest discussion, non-judgmental listening, open communication and problem solving. Depending on the problems presented, there may be times when each member will have their own session such as the parental system will have their own session/s and then the sibling system will have theirs. Grandparents may be invited for a session, as well, especially if they play an ongoing supportive role in the family life.

Though individual therapy is an essential piece in mental health recovery, the addition of family therapy can further the recovery process. Very few of us live as isolated life, remaining unconnected to others--no family, friends, or coworkers. Therefore, helping an individual communicate with their family, and helping the family to not only understand but learn how to help their loved one--can be an important part of the recovery process. Whether it be trauma, addiction, or mental illness such as Bipolar, Depression, or Anxiety, family therapy can help build a healthy support network. We all need supportive people in our lives. Family therapy can help.

I approach Family Therapy from the view that the family is a system of different moving parts that all affect each other and must work together to function properly. Even if it seems like only one family member may be struggling more often than not it is causing some type of distress in the rest of the family members. I strive to create connection and cohesion where it is lacking in families in order to create a happy home environment once again

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.
