I look at family therapy as a pattern from the family of origin, if growing up was dysfunctional; faced issues such as abuse, substance abuse, poor health, or poverty, did not adequately demonstrate love, that person may experience difficulties in these areas later in life and show up in their family. They might also, have developed coping strategies or related strengths in the face of a difficult upbringing. Without an awareness of how these issues affected them, it is likely that the negative pattern may be repeated over time. A child who witnesses parents make certain choices or engage in certain behaviors may develop a tendency to behave in a similar manner.

In order to gain a better understanding of a person's situation, their behaviour is explored in the context of Family Systems Therapy (FST). FST looks at the family as an emotional unit and identifies the patterns of interactions that are maintaining the challenges, including the patterns of communication & language used to discuss the challenges. This helps to better understand the impact of family dynamics, family values, beliefs about gender roles, status or power of family members, and cultural & ethnicity on a person's self-perception. I also use strengths-based practices with families in order to transfer strengths of individuals & family systems into therapeutic awareness.

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.

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.

Familial relationships are some of the most dynamic and complex connections we will have in our lifetime. With many individuals balancing their own inner worlds with those of other family members, our emotional experiences can easily become lost in the mix. In my work with families, I strive to provide each family member with space to share their perspective and to feel heard and respected. Exploring familial concerns within the context of therapy can present many moments for clarity, connection, bonding and healing. Contact me to begin your family’s journey to healing.

I have worked with adult children and their parents, to create a safe space for them to work on the different perspectives on issues. Family Therapy gives them a respectful way to listen to the other party's voices instead of insisting on their own voice to be heard. It may need to start with better communication skills, active listening, understanding the cycle or the pattern which might have existed for a long long time. Learning how to build healthier boundaries in the family.
