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.

Often one family member stands out as "troubled". But every close relative is hurt by painful family dynamics, many repeated down generations. Ultimately, such families produce children, who become adults, without the child they were ever having been given a chance to grow up. In this state of developmental arrest, the damaged Child Self lives life, housed in the older adult body, still unconsciously yearning to have its unmet early needs for love and approval fulfilled. My successful Family Therapy relieves your pain, teaches parents and grown children New Behaviors, New Ways to Communicate, and Solidifies each one's SELF-Love. That is, the SELF-EMPATHY essential to feel what others feel.

My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.

When a family doesn’t work well together there’s little peace, contentment or fun at home. I work with families to help identify the non-working dynamics that may be repetitively occurring and causing ruptures and resentments. Family therapy can help strengthen the resiliency of a family after a crisis, as well as break long-standing destructive patterns. Sessions allow for everyone’s voice to be heard and often include defining each individual’s role and responsibility.

Kids live in the context of their families, and I believe that when you work with kids, the family should be included because this is the best way to create change. As parents, you are the most important people in your children's lives, and I want to strengthen your connections with them. It is important to look at the cycles that families get into, and also to understand what prevents communication between kids and their parents. The therapy is tailored to the needs of your family, so who is present in each session may vary. I want to support individuals as well as restore and improve the connection between parents and their children. This also applies to adult children and their parents.

In working with families and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

I teach family members a skill called the Intentional Dialogue to help improve family communication. Often family members don't feel heard, that what they say matters, understood and that others know what they are feeling. The Intentional Dialogue allows each family member to share their 'side of the story' in a safe environment without fearing being judged or criticized. When this happens family members start to work as a team rather than be adversarial.

A family is a system. When one member of the system is experiencing something, he/she will, affect the other members of the family. Family therapy needs to be done right. It is a delicate balancing act--making sure each member is feeling heard and supported, but also to have the members acknowledge that each plays a role in promoting positive change. Open minds, open hearts are required for this to work.
