They dynamics and complexity of family therapy is best with the model of co-therapy where two counsellors are involved; one with parent(s) and one with other family member(s). Understanding how each member fits within the family system and how the family system operates as a whole is fundamental to relationship repair. Many times these dynamics are further complicated by a blended family situation, which has it's own stressors.

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.

Family therapy uses a specialized approach to bring in one, two or more family members and work together and in a non-blaming way to consider what changes might make the hard things easier. As a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist I have specialized skills and experience to use family therapy approaches geared to each unique family context, that help people use their strengths to support growth and create effective changes in their lives. Counselling may involve directed conversations and specific and creative interventions to explore dynamics and practice more effective relationship and communication skills. Family therapy is generally brief, results-oriented, and cost-effective.

Family relationships can be some of the strongest connections we experience in our lifetime; however, when these relationships undergo strain, we can be left feeling disconnected and distressed. Family Counselling can allow some or all family members to begin exploring their challenges together, and ultimately strengthen the family bond by allowing each member to feel heard and understood in a safe, unbiased environment.

Residential Addiction Program

In K0A 1K0 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

When a family member is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, the entire family is affected negatively. Communication barriers within families of addicts may cause the addict to withdraw into isolation, leaving their family members feeling frustrated, ashamed, lonely, fearful, depressed, hopeless and angry. The sources of addiction are mental, emotional and psychological in nature, and the addict, as well as their family, need to heal under the care of professionals. At Valiant Recovery, we offer counseling to the families of addicts to help them process the difficult emotions they have confronted, and to create a healthy, supportive environment for the addict to return home to.

In K2H 8R2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

I believe that families are resilient, thus, in family therapy, I provide support to the family to help every member of the family to work together so as to resolve conflicts and improve family interactions. A family is a team and if one person on the team is affected by a mental health condition, a substance use disorder, a physical health condition, crisis or any other unfavorable situation, all the family members are affected. Therefore, in family therapy I support the family to rebuild their strength, to find a solution to what brought them to therapy and to resolve the issues in the best possible manner.

Families have unique dynamics and sometimes those can be complicated. However, all families as different as they may be, all have something in common, the desire to live in harmony with one another. I specialize on helping families or couples, get to the core of what is keeping them in conflict and most importantly, I specialize on facilitating transformation for each individual so that they can free themselves from those walls or blocks and move forward to a healthier and more united family dynamics.

Often people experience difficulties with their family of origin. These difficulties can become hurts and wounds, and often experienced (or triggered) throughout one's whole lifetime. Counselling can help individuals understand these wounds, and how they currently play out in life. It can be beneficial to have all family members in the therapy sessions. Just as these wounds were created in early family interactions, they can be healed when explored within the family system in the safe environment of the counselling room.

In K2H 8P2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Usually a client's challenges are directly related to their position in their family constellation. Particularly in dysfunctional familes certain members are relegated to restrictive roles and behaviours. For example, the one with a temper, the hider, the denier, the scape-goat, etc. It is sometimes imperative to see the whole family in one or more sessions to truly identify the malfunction and to treat this particular family member. When the therapist is imbedded right in the family observing the "family dance" then the chances are vastly improved that the therapist can identify the family perturbance and empower the family to implement more successful dynamics.

In K1R 5P2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Family Therapy (FT) is close to my heart because it was one of the first therapies I became practiced in. Family Therapy often involves attachment issues for children. My approach is to educate family members on various issues and the impacts of their behaviours on other members of the family. I require a strong commitment from all members of the family to be willing to change behaviours for the benefit of the entire family to improve family functioning over the long term.

In my practice I work with families to problem solve around the barriers that are preventing them from connecting in a meaningful way. While utilizing an attachment theory based approach families will learn to redefine their relationships and learn to communicate with each other in a way that allows stronger bonds.

Family therapy is a process for everyone to feel heard, understood and that their needs matter. From the youngest to the eldest all our needs matter. Through a process of growing empathy for each other, we can explore creative ways where everyone can get their needs met and everyone can have space to be themselves. Sometimes we all get confused about what we are really wanting. So often conflict and misunderstandings create isolation in even the most loving families. Our work together is to make the time and space to understand each other and find the way back from conflict to connection.

In K2L 1M8 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Family therapy tends to be short-term treatment, usually several months in length, with a focus on resolving specific problems such as eating disorders, difficulties with school, or adjustments to bereavement, or geographical relocation. In family therapy sessions, all members of the family and the therapist are present at most sessions. The therapists seek to analyze the process of family interaction and communication as a whole; they do not take sides with specific members. They may make occasional comments or remarks intended to help family members become more conscious of patterns or structures that had been previously taken for granted.

In K2E 7Y8 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Doing family therapy allows each member's voice to be heard and counted. Everyone participating is permitted to share their own personal feelings unique perspective, express what is needed or necessary to be said, even to the extent of challenging status quo in the family. Everyone's input and voice are considered to be equals no matter the age or status held in the family. The outcome of family therapy can be rewarding enough for blind spots to be highlighted and greater insights recognized like never before. More than anything it is participating as an important contributor to a much healthier family dynamic.

In K1S 2V8 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

When working with families I have found that understanding how that particular family 'system' works is most important. Each family is unique with its own strengths and weakness. I also bring my extensive training in Attachment Theory to understand how each family member connects to the others. Helping each member be 'heard' and respected by the others goes a long way towards resolving issues within the family. In families with young children and when appropriate, I also help parents develop new parenting skills.
