When working with families in therapy, I utilize a family systems approach which addresses each member of the family. The family system has its own structure and patterns of communication, which may be defined by parenting style, personalities, and other influences. My therapy techniques will focus on improving communication skills, addressing conflict management, and working towards a goal of offering solutions to nurture change and development and making the family unit stronger. I utilize therapeutic techniques to address issues such as; marital problems, parent-child conflicts, problems between siblings and the effects of illness on the family.

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.

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.

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.

Each family is unique and comes with its own issues that directly impact them. I find it an honor and rewarding to work with the entire family system. When you can work on improving the way the whole family interacts and change the relational dynamics, everyone benefits. Each person is a valued member of the family and plays an important role. The family would not be complete without everyone. Family therapy allows understanding and healing for everyone.
