Family Therapist

Sharon Purcell, MSW, RSW, SEP

Somatic Experiencing Psychotherapist, Coach, and Counselor

34 Carscadden Drive, Buzzer 1816, North York, Ontario

Family dynamics hold the key to many life experiences, both wonderful and terrible. We are deeply cellularly drawn to "work out" our family struggles. Some voices get heard and some get lost. There is often an "identified" difficult person who may be holding the tension for the whole family. Improving communication can be transformative in improving feeling of safety and connection. A family therapy session can reveal and relieve difficult dynamics that may be adding to daily stress and unhappiness. These sessions can take place in your own home as well as in my office.

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 Consultant

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.

Family Therapist

Samuel Cheng, M.Div, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist

45 Sheppard Ave East, Toronto, Ontario

When you stub your toe, your whole body acts to react to the pain. Likewise, when member(s) of the family hurt, the whole family is impacted. Drawing from family systems theory, I work with families to uncover and understand the unspoken emotional chain reactions that take place when the family is stressed, identify unhelpful patterns, and help family members find effective ways to work together as a cohesive unit to accomplish their goals.

Family Therapist

Lisa Clendening, BEd, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

Available for Online Therapy

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 Therapist

Martin Resnick, Ph.D., C.Psych

Consulting Psychologist (Registerd Psychologist Prov of ON

2000 Credit Valley Rd, Suite 515, Mississauga, Ontario

My approach to family therapy is learning to communicate more effectively by focusing on current issues & interactions. Conflict resolution amongst family members is reviewed & the emphasis is on understanding & empathy with the goal of negotiating realistic solutions so that current family problems can be resolved. You & family members will learn to become closer & deepen family ties as well as get through difficult & stressful situations. The family will learn to solve problems & express thoughts & emotions effectively. Exploring family roles & behavioural patterns is necessary to identify issues that trigger conflict. You will learn positive interactions & reduce maladaptive responses.

Family Therapist

Susan Lieberman, Hon.B.A., D.C.S. (Psych)

Individual, Family and Marital Therapist

3292 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, Ontario

When working with families it is important to gain an understanding of all of the interpersonal relationships and the dynamics within those relationships that ultimately guide them. The approach to family therapy is to see members of the family separately in order to gain an understanding of their feelings, beliefs and wishes, and then bring the family members together to discuss how best to improve the situation through communication, negotiation and understanding. Homework is given and tasks are assigned.
