Working as a family to resolve challenges offers a unique opportunity for learning and growth. Families are at their best, a collective, supporting unit and when experiencing challenges the pain and the frustration of family life can be very difficult. The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel! Deborah takes a systems approach to helping families to celebrate the joys and manage the challenges of the family unit.

Dr. Smith has practiced family therapy since 1980 all over Canada. He works with families who are willing to heal conflicts and learn healthy ways of support, encouragement and support. His usual entrance into family work comes from working with individuals and couples. He has found that when one person in a family has problems the whole family does also. Dr. Smith has also found that an individual or a couple cannot solve the problem until the whole family supports the client or couple. Moreover, families repeat the same problems from one generation to the other until someone changes the dynamics. Professional help is often the solution to resolving the issues one is facing in life.

Families undergo constant change as each member strives to learn, grow and develop individually and in relation to others. Stress and challenges are a normal part of family development and, at times, these can become "too much" to handle alone. When arguments, disagreements, confusion and conflict arise it can be quite helpful to draw upon an experienced family systems specialist. Assessing and prioritizing concerns and developing a game plan for improving communication, relationships and overall functioning is available. Teamwork require good coaches (parents/caregivers) and good coaches benefit from training. Problem-solving, mediation and stress management coaching improves family.

Is there conflict, tension or pain in your family? Do you have a view of how you would like things to be? Are you interested in how things could change? All families go through different challenges when communication is not working, arguments seem to go nowhere and stress and tension is taking its toll. Family therapy can help restore and improve communication, increase understanding and bring about change. It can reduce stress and tension for all and get things back on track. I practice solution-focused brief counselling which focuses on the strengths family members have and uses them to build effective solutions in areas that are important to you.

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.

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.

Whether your family is blended, has a hectic schedule to follow, has very little time to spend together, or other issues to contend with, therapy can help. Therapy can help family members to communicate more openly with one another allowing differences to be understood, discussed, and resolved to make your family more healthy and united.

My family therapy approach involves seeing the whole family initially to understand each person's unique perspective, provide safety for each person to express themselves and to give each person the opportunity to determine their comfort level with me as therapist. I will then work with parts of the family (eg, siblings, parents, dyads such as Mother/Child, Father/Child, Sib/Sib) to support recognition of the unique cycle each group/dyad experiences as problematic in having the closeness and safety they desire within the family. I use Emotion Focused Family Therapy which is based on attachment research and which acknowledges our need to be known and loved by family members.
