A family often changes because of the difficulties one person may be having. Alternatively, the challenges experienced by each family member affects the whole unit. When this happens, family members begin to push themselves apart from everyone else, leaving the family experiencing more conflict and feelings of emptiness. My approach is to bring the family members together and facilitate a respectful dialogue between everyone. Having an opportunity to speak one's mind without feeling judged or criticized can do wonders for increasing understanding amongst family members. It's also an important step for creating change.

In M1P 4Y1 - Nearby to Brooklin.

Families play a vital role in their child's healing. Sometimes, the issue may not lie with the individual child but with the entire family system. It may be that the child's emotions or behaviours may be an indicator that the whole family is in need of support. Alternatively, it could be that the family is in need of support due to the child's challenging problem. Either way, children will heal more quickly when families work together with the therapist. I am trained in family therapy modalities including: Family Play Therapy, Theraplay, Emotion-Focused Family Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, the Family Healing Model, Indigenous Healing practices, and Narrative reflecting teams.

Is there conflict, tension or pain in your family? Do you have a view of how you would like things to be? Are you interested in how things could change? All families go through different challenges when communication is not working, arguments seem to go nowhere and stress and tension is taking its toll. Family therapy can help restore and improve communication, increase understanding and bring about change. It can reduce stress and tension for all and get things back on track. I practice solution-focused brief counselling which focuses on the strengths family members have and uses them to build effective solutions in areas that are important to you.

Douglas Lane Smith, B.A, M.A., Ph.D., C.Psych.

CLINICAL AND SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY DOCTOR

In L1N 8L9 - Nearby to Brooklin.

Dr. Smith has practiced family therapy since 1980 all over Canada. He works with families who are willing to heal conflicts and learn healthy ways of support, encouragement and support. His usual entrance into family work comes from working with individuals and couples. He has found that when one person in a family has problems the whole family does also. Dr. Smith has also found that an individual or a couple cannot solve the problem until the whole family supports the client or couple. Moreover, families repeat the same problems from one generation to the other until someone changes the dynamics. Professional help is often the solution to resolving the issues one is facing in life.

Families all have one common purpose and that is caring. Whether its nuclear family, stepfamily single-parent family, or empty-ness family, it usually consists of related people who cares about each other. Regardless of the type, all families need to be nurtured and strengthened from time to time. I will work with your family to understand the challenges, built trust, embraced each other and to realise that when the storm is over they are all still intact.

Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Marriage & Family Therapist

In L1G 1S2 - Nearby to Brooklin.

My family therapy approach involves seeing the whole family initially to understand each person's unique perspective, provide safety for each person to express themselves and to give each person the opportunity to determine their comfort level with me as therapist. I will then work with parts of the family (eg, siblings, parents, dyads such as Mother/Child, Father/Child, Sib/Sib) to support recognition of the unique cycle each group/dyad experiences as problematic in having the closeness and safety they desire within the family. I use Emotion Focused Family Therapy which is based on attachment research and which acknowledges our need to be known and loved by family members.

Families undergo constant change as each member strives to learn, grow and develop individually and in relation to others. Stress and challenges are a normal part of family development and, at times, these can become "too much" to handle alone. When arguments, disagreements, confusion and conflict arise it can be quite helpful to draw upon an experienced family systems specialist. Assessing and prioritizing concerns and developing a game plan for improving communication, relationships and overall functioning is available. Teamwork require good coaches (parents/caregivers) and good coaches benefit from training. Problem-solving, mediation and stress management coaching improves family.

A family can be characterized like a web bound together by feelings, customs, beliefs and behaviours. Whatever happens in one part of the web is felt by other parts as a means of balancing things so that the web does not break. When there is stress in this connectivity or there is a break in the family, we may see any part of the family or the entire family in therapy. Participation by all members becomes crucial in determining the whole picture of what is happening. Sometimes, if the therapy is successful in guiding one or two crucial changes in the family's functioning, stress is significantly alleviated restoring the "web" to a healthier balance.

In L9P 0A1 - Nearby to Brooklin.

My approach to family therapy is to allow all members of the family the same opportunity to be heard in a non-judgmental space. My role is not to take sides or point out fault but to help develop a framework, which will promote healthy communication. We work on "rules of engagement"; finding time to foster a healthy kinship and also help to promote boundaries.

I view the family as a system. Each individual in the family has a part in how well the system functions. Sometimes the components of the system are imbalanced so that some are over-functioning, and some may be underfunctioning. I work with families to tweak and adjust the system to help it to run more smoothly such as the parents relationship, parent-child and sibling relationships, roles within the family, parenting and communication styles, individual/couple/family needs. Sometimes factors such as addictions and mental health also need to be addressed. Families learn healthy new ways to function and are happier post therapy.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Individual, Couple and Family Therapy

In L1N 4P7 - Nearby to Brooklin.

In working with families, we aim to explore the power dynamics that exist between individual members and the ways in which these dynamics can work to maintain a particular pattern that is not of interest to everyone in the family. We look at the ways these patterns can prevent "success", or the achievement of what it is the family truly wants and values. In this way, we adopt a method of systemic or relational thinking; we hope to understand patterns rather than making any one person in the family the "problem". As such, we understand problems as a system of unsatisfying responses. Note: When working with families, there are times when it is useful to meet with members individually.

In L3P 7S7 - Nearby to Brooklin.

My family therapy provides coaching, support, guidance and empowerment to all members. I coach parents to become better "parenting coaches", and children to become better "game of life" payers. I help each member tap into his/her "life tools" and empower personal abilities, flexibility, and self-control. It is not "power over" another person, but "power shared." It is about becoming the right person. When you focus on your own behaviors and the way you treat the person you love, it will not be long before things begin to change. we can make ourselves do what we need to do in order to become the kind of person who is worthy of being in a healthy family relationship.

In L1N 1C4 - Nearby to Brooklin.

From personal experience I have great respect and value for the family. As I work with families in counselling, I am confronted with two fundamental questions that need to be answered by the individuals concerned: • How do we define family? • What does it mean to think systemically? I approach family therapy from a system orientation. Working collaboratively and compassionately with the individuals concerned, we consider all the probable outcomes of any changes that could possibly be made, and aim for the most positive, long-term results.

Families are very complex systems, we all know that. We love each other but that love may not be all you need to understand the needs and behaviors we have in order to make the most of the relationship. Having a neutral, caring and educated professional to support you and guide you might be necessary in some cases when you depleted your resources and you feel like you are going around in circles. If this resonates with your situation do not hesitate to contact me, you can be sure to find a safe and not judgmental space to work through the family challenges.

In L3P 7P2 - Nearby to Brooklin.

'Family' is supposed to be a safe haven, a place that always feels like home. But when there is unresolved conflict and unsatisfying relationships 'family' can feel like anything but! I love to help families (including multi-generational families) be able to communicate and function in healthier ways so that the hurt can stop and love and understanding can be expressed and felt. If you've been thinking about family counselling for a while, don't wait any longer. You'd be surprised at the difference that can be made in a relatively short period of time and how family relationships can heal and grow into safer, more loving places to call 'home'!
