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.

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

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.

Each of you has a role being played out in your family - and possibly not the obvious one you imagine. I take a 'structuralist' approach to family therapy - looking at what is taking place between members rather than to individuals. We will explore these events/relationships and work on changing patterns of interaction that on one hand have developed in your family, but on the other are likely continuations of patterns played out before, perhaps for generations. These can change - and it is usually for everyone's benefit.

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

A lot of who we are today as adults comes from our families of origins. Even when we are conscious about the not so good areas and set great intentions to not repeat patterns, we see where what we claimed we wouldn't do or be seems to pop up without our noticing. In family work, whether together or individually, we go backwards to go forward to figure out who and how you want and choose to show up moving forward. You can't change what you were given but you can work on deciding on how you show up in your future.

Family Therapist

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

We have our closest, longest-lasting, and most complicated relationships with family. When there is divorce, remarriage, addiction, mental illness or other dysfunction it can become even more complicated. With my Family Systems perspective I can help you understand how your family helped to form the person that you are, and help you untangle yourself from the dysfunction and heal the relationships that are important to you.

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.

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.
