Families can be complicated. You may be struggling with a particular issue and not know how to approach it with your partner or your family. Perhaps your child is having a difficult time or has gone through a traumatic event and you want to be supportive but aren't sure what to do to help. Maybe you and your loved ones are just having a hard time talking to each other and getting along. Family therapy can help. I provide a comfortable and secure place to discuss your concerns, feelings and goals. I help families gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the issues, and work collaboratively with them to build effective communication skills, reduce conflict and promote growth.

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.

A family is a complex system, with a great many dynamics. Add to that how parents bring their past, history, childhood, and emotional baggage into the parenting of their own children. It can feel overwhelming: where do you start. But parenting and running a family can be amazing and healing. You can succeed in raising happy, successful children, while also working through the left over issues of your own childhood. You can be stronger as a result of your family of origin experiences, and create the family life you dream of and will be proud of. Get clear on the goals of parenting – independent and confident children, with life skills and emotional tools. Enjoy your family again.

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 time a family loses cohesiveness due to life stressors, difference of life goals and age related stages each member is going through. Even though it may seem like one member is the main "problem" it effects all members and takes cooperative effort to improve communication and improve the family's quality of life. Let me assist you in achieving this goal.

In working with family issues, I first determine the cause of the issue. We would then discuss and agree to treatment options. When issues are with adolescents, sometimes I end up being a sounding board when they feel they can't talk to their parents. If there is communication issues between family members, I will work with them on building skills to better understand each others needs. The goal Is generally to have everyone working together as a team. When there is conflict in a marriage or pending separation or divorce, I will work with family members to adjust to the changes taking place and assist them in the reorganization process.

I work with Families the same way I work with couples. There are just more individuals, all looking at the same events "through different lenses" and the tensions get dissipated when people can inquire, investigate and try to understand exactly how and why the other family member has come to see the same incident in a different way. Early hurts, fears, vulnerabilites affect how we ALL SEE THINGS and this needs to be shared. For " there is no such thing as an immaculate perception." Because of our past experiences , we all "wear glasses: that magnify things that confirm our beliefs and minimize things that disconfirm what we have learned to believe. Understanding this cures.
