Family means so much to God, so it should mean so much to us. Consequently, family dynamics can be quite challenging to work through when issues arise. The struggles that come from families of origin can stifle growth in a marriage and cause a lot of friction in raising children. Not to mention, having children can introduce many new dynamics that consist of anything from their behavior issues to significant emotional distress and social challenges. I can help you navigate through these challenges effectively either with your children individually or within the context of family therapy.

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.

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.

Family Therapy comes in many forms. At KCRI our approach to family therapy is by reconnecting adult children and their aging parents. Offenses are given and taken and before you know it, it has been months or years of silence. There are a thousand reasons why adult children and their parent(s) or siblings lose connection but we can help you begin to heal, today. Often, it is hard to know where to begin, or even if reconciliation is possible. Either way, the pain, frustration, and regret occupies your thoughts. Rather than regretting the years that have been lost, clients can benefit by finding their hoped for future.
