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!

Family relationships can be both beautiful and challenging. These challenges can quickly become overwhelming and extra support can help prevent and repair harm. If you are experiencing increased conflict, communication issues, feelings of disconnect or isolation, going through separation or divorce, processing grief, or other challenges in your family relationships, therapy can help support you and your family in creating positive change. I work to provide a safe space to openly discuss and explore these challenges, striving to make room for everyone to feel heard and understood as we work together to identify potential solutions. I work with various family configurations, ages 15+.

Families are unique, and as we all know, they can be very complicated. This is normal, as is the fact that sometimes they require help to navigate such complications. A great deal of my therapeutic work and experience over the past 20 years has been helping families with their expressed difficulties regardless of what those may be. Family Therapy at Growth Counselling Services provides all members of the family unit with a comfortable and safe environment that allows each member to express their perspectives and concerns free of judgment. Together, we will rediscover your families inner strengths and potential for positive change as individuals, and as a family unit. Call today.

In family therapy, the focus is on the interactions of those that are affected by the presenting concern and strengthening relationships of the family system. Although some concerns may appear to apply to one individual, involvement of family can have positive benefits on both the individual and overall family functioning. While family therapy may often focus on child-parent relationships, other loved ones such as grandparents, caregivers, siblings etc. are invited to attend where you see fit. As the therapist, I strive to help facilitate a space in which each family member has equal opportunity to share their experiences and perspectives. Contact me today to book a free consultation.

Within each family are the experiences of each family member. In family therapy, you, and your family can explore how each member’s roles and perspectives impact the family as a whole. You can learn to cultivate a family environment grounded in respect for individual experiences, sense of connection and shared understanding. I work with individuals, couples and families. Book a free consultation to explore if we are a good fit for therapy.

Research shows when one family member is struggling, all the members of the family are affected in some way. Giving each person in the family a safe place to voice their concerns can help families improve communication and resolve conflict. Family therapy addresses the behaviors of individuals as well as the dynamic between family members. • It can provide vital communication skills. • Help family members develop healthy boundaries. • Promote problem-solving • Build empathy and understanding
