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.

It is always important to work with families when working with children. Through the use of family therapy, communication between family members is enhanced and conflicts are better resolved. Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and bring you closer together.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

Family life is a multi-layered experience for each person. No two family members experience family life, or the relationships within the family, in exactly the same way. For this reason, family therapy is a very active, dynamic process. Although several family members may see me initially to explain what they think is problematic, I like to see the entire family together as soon as possible. My work with families focuses on helping each person explain their needs and hear how others in the family feel hurt and misunderstood. Reducing the stress and conflict within the family is the purpose of learning in sessions how to communicate clearly.

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.

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.

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.

The role we play in our family dynamic directly impacts who we are and how we function. The practicing family therapy, I believe that communication is above all the most important skill to hone in on. I closely study and analyze how your family functions in order to better understand how you interact and communicate with one another. I then help each member understand the other's issues and unmet emotional needs.

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.

In family counseling family members develop healthy ways of communicating and responding to one another to create and establish an atmosphere of trust and emotional safety. Family members learn to identify their own needs, increase sensitivity to the needs of others and interact in ways that build trust. Family counseling is conducted in an atmosphere of respect and dignity for all.

I am a licensed family therapist and teach family therapy. I used to do individual work with children. I don't anymore because in 30 plus years working with families I have found that family therapy is more effective. Children and teenagers respond to the patterns in their families. Whatever problems children are having, dysfunctional family patterns will make them worse, and parents, and families in general, can have more positive impact on their children than a therapist can. Family therapy can also be useful with adult issues. We all have relationships with spouses, siblings, and parents that continue into adulthood,. A therapist can help families to maximize strengths and shift patterns
