When an individual in the family experiences an ongoing issue it typically affects the entire family. In family therapy Sarah involves various family members in sessions to assist them to understand how each member's behaviour affects the others. This benefits the family by assisting them in learning new communication and conflict resolution skills and by helping to create greater closeness and sense of commitment through the resolution of family hurts and traumas. Typically family therapy results in improved communication, a greater ability to work together as a family team, a greater sense of mutual respect and connectedness and a resolution of the issues that cause division in the family.

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.

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

In K2L 1M8 - Nearby to Lanark County.

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.

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Psychotherapist: Individual, Marriage & Family therapist

In K2H 8R2 - Nearby to Lanark County.

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.

Family Therapy initiates an awareness of and a respect for the very different reality and experience held by each family members. it facilitates awareness of the uniqueness of each family member's individual identity, rather than promoting individual family members as a reflection of the other. Understanding unfolds such that family members are capable of developing a map of reality that reflects the awareness of, and respect for, the important needs of each family member .

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.

In K2K 0A1 - Nearby to Lanark County.

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.

Registered Social Worker

In K1S 2E1 - Nearby to Lanark County.

When somebody has a developmental, physical, emotional, cognitive or behavioural disability, the entire family is affected: caregiver burnout, siblings feel stigma about their sibling, sibling to sibling relationships are altered, couples have less time together, holidays are delayed, and crisis sometimes happen. I can help siblings explore their feelings about their sibling in a safe and nonjudgmental space, develop ways to cope with their sibling's special needs, and develop individual wellness plans. I can help families develop family wellness plans, resolve conflicts in a safe and mutually respectful manner, and foster a sense of collaboration and togetherness within the family unit.

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 K1S 2V8 - Nearby to Lanark County.

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.
