Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

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.

Which is more important: An individual's needs or the needs of the family? Answer: both A healthy, cohesive family can solve, support and resolve issues which create conflict, distress, reconnect and strengthen the family. All family members are asked to attend family counseling. From time-to-time, I may ask to meet with individual members if it can benefit the family as a whole. Aesop wrote in his fables, "together we stand, divided we fall..." Together the family can be a cohesive unit where all members feel safe, respected, supported and loved.

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 always include parent(s) in all sessions so they can learn how to bring out the best in their children. I reach, teach, educate and motivate children to value and respect their parents. When children show gratitude not attitude it is much easier for parents to praise and show love rather than yelling, punishing, and restricting their children. The resulting harmonious relations improve the atmosphere of the entire household and the benefits extend to siblings.

Effective parenting starts with healthy and respectful relationships. However, having just the right relationship in place is sometimes not enough for a happy home. If you find that your punitive measures are no longer cutting it, or you find your adolescent children becoming more and more disconnected from you, you have every right to be concerned. Many families need support in the form of an empathic and effective counselor to create healthier relationships at home. Unhealthy dynamics are usually created and exacerbated by everyone involved - not just one person. How can seeking family counseling help your family?

If your teenager is struggling with one or more of the above issues, we recommend the following: 1. Individual sessions will teach your child skills for decreasing symptoms, regulating emotions, and gaining self-awareness about the process of self-change. 2. Family sessions will address your child’s specific needs in the context of your family. We believe it is essential to view your child as one part of the whole – your family. 3. Support Groups for ‘Tweens (ages 9-12) and Teens (ages 13-17) will give your child the opportunity to express him/herself in a supportive, safe environment.

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.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Family problems affect everyone in the family-from the oldest down to the youngest family member. Working with as few as two family members, I can help you and your family resolve conflict, emotional cut-offs, and negative communication patterns. Long term unresolved issues often create present day conflict and misunderstandings that affect everyone in the family. Therapy can help uncover and resolve those issues as well as work through the current family issues.

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.

Family therapy is unique in comparison to individual therapy, as the focus is placed on the dynamics within the family and not on one individualized person. My family therapy approach is to understand the goals of each individual, as well a the family unit as a whole. The focus is traditionally placed on communication styles within the family, different alliances formed within the family and how the family is functioning together.
