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.

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.

Families often need support around issues including grief and loss, family break-up, life transitions, substance use, illness, parent-teen conflict, communication, among other issues. I work with families to help them to shift patterns that are leading to conflict and are challenging the closeness of the relationships. My aim is to support families to strengthen their bonds and to transform their relationships. I work with families of all ages including young children as well as adult children.

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.

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.

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.

I support one individual adult in a problematic family unit and do not communicate with other members of the family directly unless I have explicit permission to do so. This approach is especially helpful when there may be emotional, verbal, or more obvious forms of abuse taking place within a family unit. I specialize in helping the individual to define what they want for themselves and the family and to implement action steps in order to achieve his/her goals.

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.

Knowing the family dynamics is very important in Family Therapy. With this knowledge, I am able to point out to the family members how they are relating to each other. If there are dysfunctions in those relationships, I would want to address the root causes of the dysfunctions which could be their thoughts about themselves and the other family members. Once those irrational thoughts are addressed, then we can work on how each member can be relevant to each other and function as a family unit that works for all.

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 K2M 0B1 - 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.
