As a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, I have specific training and expertise in working with relationships. This means that whether I meet people individually, or with their friend, partner or family member, I see people in the context of their most important relationships which are often family relationships, family of origin or family of choice. I work with people to help them have more satisfying relationships. I have expertise with all kinds of families and all kinds of family issues: parenting and parent-child relationship issues, discipline, substance use, trauma, step-family issues, child/adolescent behavioural issues, adult-child/parent issues, care-giving, etc.

We all learn differently, express differently, and quite often perceive experiences differently because we bring a different "lens" and that is why your counsellor needs to be CREATIVE and FLEXIBLE. As parents we feel a deep responsibility to be these great parents and raise remarkable kids, but life isn't so easy and we are far from perfect. We need to give ourselves a break sometimes because we are only doing the best we can with what we have. Sometimes we just need a little help along the way. No matter how large your family is, lets find solutions and have FUN while we are doing it!

Living in a family is challenging. With a mixture of genders, sizes, ages, needs and personalities it's often difficult for lives to run smoothly. As well, every family is different--some are recently created as a result of remarriage while others are long established. Using Systems Theory as a guide, I will help you to explore the strengths that are already in place in your family as well as areas that can be improved. We'll strengthen communication skills and look at the roles being fulfilled by family members. Some meetings will be done with the entire family, while at times I may meet with family members in pairs or individually to get a clear picture of the family structure.

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.

Sometimes the difficulties occurring in a family are systemic - which means that there is not really a 'problem person' but a family interaction malfunction. In family counselling, it is understood that everyone in the family impacts and affects everyone else and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It is also understood that the way to 'fix' a family problem is not by simply changing specific behaviours, but by changing the structure of the family. This can be a very important process for the many different types of families that we have in our society.

Registered Clinical Social Worker

55 Delhi St (front door), Guelph, Ontario N1E 4J3 | (519) 265-6133

Through my work experiences and studies, I have discovered that healthy families are built through healthy emotional connections. This means all members of the family must be emotionally vulnerable, attuned and responsive to each other. Parents and children often find this most difficult during the teenage years when the child begins to gain autonomy. The changes in the child's behaviour and emotional needs can lead to parent-teen conflict. I have expertise in engaging youth, enhancing parent-child relationships, reducing parent-teen conflict and child/ adolescent behavioural issues. I provide free 15 minute consults, so you can decide if the services I provide are the right fit for you.

As a parent or caregiver it may be confusing about meeting the needs and children and youth with mental health difficulties. Children and youth may function well at home, but struggle in school or peer situations. Some may struggle with depression or anxiety, while others struggle with issues of anger management, substance use, or defiance. I will work with your family to develop healthy communication skills, set appropriate boundaries, and if necessary create a behaviour management plan.

"The idea that one of the best things you can do for your child is to create a loving relationship with your partner is not sentimental ... it's a scientific fact" - Susan Johnson, Hold Me Tight. More and more we realize that love is not a total mystery and that it can be scientifically understood. I will help you recognize how you are connected to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is dependent on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to strengthen families is to build secure emotional connections, and for members to be emotionally open, attuned and responsive to each other.
