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 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.

The teenage years can be a difficult time for both the teen and the parents. We work with both adolescents and families to help alleviate issues at home. There are two options for working with adolescents. We can work individually or through family therapy. Individual therapy would be like any other therapy, and the information would be confidential. Family work would incorporate all family members and its aim is to help family members, not just the teens, improve communication and solve family problems. We work on learning how to handle family situations differently to create a better home environment for everyone.

Family issues can feel daunting. They can cause much inner stress, grief and even illness. Addressing tension in family relationships is key to living a happy, wholesome life. I see each individual as a sub-unit of family life. I have done great systems work in working with the entire family unit, in creating a space to discuss issues, allow anger, and at the same time, finding a space to develop creative solutions and better ways of working through conflict and pain. Together we create a space to process the strained dynamic and work on understanding, respecting and improving connection with one another, allowing space for harmony, compassion and love to be expressed.

The parent-child relationship does not end when childhood ends. These are relationships that last for your lifetime, also as a grown adult. Sometimes conflicts with parents or children that originated when you or they were a child(ren) continue on into adulthood with recognizable themes. If you and your family member are wanting to address and work on improving your relationship, please explore therapy together. It is never too late become more peaceful if you both want to have that with each other.

I was trained in Minuchin Family Therapy with Jorge Colapinto during the 1980's at the Community Center for Mental Health in Dumont, New Jersey, where I worked with family members of the severely mentally ill population. I've been providing family and couples therapy since that time, either with individual families or in a multi-family group format. Structural Family Therapy identifies the maladaptive communication and behavioral patterns within the family structure. Sometimes changing just one dynamic among family members can increase adaptive functioning, communication, and relationships. My degrees are: MA in psychology, MS in clinical social work, and PhD in social work.

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.

Marriage and Family Therapist

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

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.

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.
