Families are important. Family relationships almost always play an important role in an individual's ability to develop a strong self-esteem and engage in healthy relationships. So, family counseling is often a powerful tool for mending or restoring relationships to good health. Over time, most of us learn to interact a certain way with certain family members and continue to treat them in a certain way without taking into account life changes or more effective options. Family therapy can be a wonderful way to increase awareness of ineffective interactional styles and identify more respectful and compassionate approaches.

This family that we acquire when we are born influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last. Our family affects who we are and who we become, for better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. Family therapy offers families a way to do this—a way to develop or maintain a healthy, functional family.

Family is where we live, love and hurt. Most of us live with the misconception that because most people do the family thing – we should know how to do it. We don’t. Family is one of the hardest things that we can do. It seems like it is supposed to be easy. When you get in the middle of it, it just isn’t. Asking for help can often get families back to where they either use to be or get them to the place that they all crave to be. Family will never be easy but it can be rewarding. Family life is very hard. It will always be hard. There is help. We as Marriage and Family Therapists are trained to understand the dynamics of families. We are taught and have honed the skill of how to impa....

Keeping the family strong means that you have a strong support system around you. I work with the family to help members better understand the system that they have created, how it is functioning, and how it is serving them. The goal is to understand the system by assessing its strengths and weaknesses to better use it to support and sustain its members.

The dynamics of a family are unique and complicated. It is important that in all sessions each member is heard. Family systems therapy regardless of the problem whether "individual" or a "family issue," involving the family in solutions often benefits clients. As a family and couples counselor my ability to influence sessions is in a way that catalyses the strength, wisdom and support of a wider system is crucial for positive outcomes. With over ten years of experience as a drug and alcohol counselor understanding the impact that substance abuse has on every individual in the family system is beneficial in helping family gain awareness and knowledge.

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.
