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.

Families experience developmental stages, just like people do. Families are made up of individuals that require love, respect and must also exhibit a certain amount of cooperation to work together successfully. When families stop growing together and grow apart, there are many reasons why this might occur, and it is time to see a therapist experienced in the challenges of working with families. I will seek to restore the hierarchy - parents in the executive role and children learning and growing using the love and respect they receive from good parenting. I will work with the values and rules you prescribe for your family, and increase communication and cooperation.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

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.

Families that work well together as a unit provide healthy boundaries and structure. As a structural therapist, I will help family members and those who are in close relationship with them, to foster change by differentiation of self thereby, reducing emotional entanglements and negative problematic behaviors. Families will learn how to rely on their strengths to reduce internal stress and conflict. They will also learn how to improve their internal family systems and ways interacting between family members. To further promote behavioral changes, I will help the family members to increase their awareness of self and promote family cohesion.

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.

People seek out family therapy when they are faced with challenges in their relationships, raising children, and problems involving extended family and friends. Adopting a relationship perspective, I do not negate the significance of individual intra-psychic of human relationships, or the family social system. If you are currently experiencing a challenging situation with your immediate, or extended, family it might be worth considering the kind of professional support marriage and family counseling can provide.

Family therapy is a type of counseling that involves working on family issues as a whole or unit. It is usually sought after to help the family resolve all sorts of conflicts and most importantly improve communication to strengthen the family bonds. Your type of therapy is determined by your specific situation and with your overall goals in mind. Family therapy is often short-lived as families learn the necessary skills to function well on their own long-term.
