Familial units can oftentimes become caught in cycles of miscommunication and misinterpretation that builds up and solidifies through the years. My approach to working with families is identifying such cycles and unearthing and understanding each member’s intentions. I believe that more often than not, family members have good intentions, and when this is brought to light, defenses can soften, and the healing process can ensue.

Family relationships can be both beautiful and challenging. These challenges can quickly become overwhelming and extra support can help prevent and repair harm. If you are experiencing increased conflict, communication issues, feelings of disconnect or isolation, going through separation or divorce, processing grief, or other challenges in your family relationships, therapy can help support you and your family in creating positive change. I work to provide a safe space to openly discuss and explore these challenges, striving to make room for everyone to feel heard and understood as we work together to identify potential solutions. I work with various family configurations, ages 15+.

Dr. Ellen's Thrive is a fresh approach to family therapy, equipping families with a great capacity for change, renewal and vision. With the belief, “What you pay attention to grows!” I do not focus on "fixing" children or deep problem analysis, but I centre inquiry on what is working and how to move forward. I will listen deeply to your concerns, ask supportive questions to open up your understanding, share with you new ideas and a fresh perspective, and offer considered suggestions. This process is about self reflection and building relationships in the family; moving you toward the family you want to be!

Gestalt therapy is a systems‐oriented, immediate‐experience‐oriented, and affect‐oriented therapy that is highly effective for families. Unlike other therapies, gestalt regards the client system's emergent processes as the central focus, and it emphasizes that growth occurs as the family and its members are helped to greater self‐awareness and responsibility for their own functioning. Dynamic forces within your family may need some the maintenance. How can a sense of peace and equilibrium be brought back into your home? I am not afraid to work with intense emotional outbreaks. I can help support family unity with strength and care! Develop better ways of communicating with each other!

Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.

Conflict and other issues often challenge the integrity of the family. Poor communication can be one of the main contributors. Many families give up unnecessarily, leaving minimal or even no contact between family members. Family therapy can help individuals understand the root of the dysfunction and open respectful lines of communication presenting the potential for healthy family relationships. Learning to let go of the past, healthy communication and conflict resolution can often lay the foundation to build a solid future of healthy relationships.

Family life is filled with developmental stages and many changes. Navigating through these changes can be challenging at times. Psychotherapy can help families gain greater understanding of each other and discover new ways to communicate. It is my goal to provide a safe place for families to come together to share their experience and work together on their common goal. It would be an honor to work with you.

Within each family are the experiences of each family member. In family therapy, you, and your family can explore how each member’s roles and perspectives impact the family as a whole. You can learn to cultivate a family environment grounded in respect for individual experiences, sense of connection and shared understanding. I work with individuals, couples and families.

Family Systems Approach. The family systems approach is a theory developed by psychiatrist Murray Bowen in the 1950s. Specifically, Dr. Bowen built family systems theory and its concepts assume that there is an emotional system governing human relationships in families. Based on the roles within the system, people are expected to interact with and respond to one another in a certain way. Patterns develop within the system, and each member's behaviors impact the other members in predictable ways.

We all being life with a family, one that influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last. Our family shapes who we are and who we become. Within the family system we learn language, habits, customs and believes, how to view and observe the world around us and learn how to love, and how to interact with others from these first important relationships. Shauna's family therapy offers families a way to be healthy and happy through a structured, systems, attachment based approach – families learn to develop and maintain a healthy, functional family.

When conflict in a family occurs it is felt throughout, similar to a ripple effect in a pond. Family therapy is about integrating family members as a single unit to restore harmony and balance. Integration in therapy is key, as similar to the conflict ripple effect above, the same effect occurs with change. Change in one family member is experienced throughout the entire family unit. Family therapy may be brief (typically 1-4 sessions) or longer term (5+ sessions) depending on your families current needs. Regardless of the reasons for seeking therapy, I want to work with your family to restore its balance, co-create change, and develop a harmonious ripple effect that can be felt throughout

Through a combination of Family Systems techniques, therapeutic art making, and talking therapy, I help families build communication, become aware of their habits and ways of interacting, identify problems, and come up with solutions for the best way to solve or manage these problems. I help families become a more open and cohesive unit by helping them become more aware of the ways that they interact with each other, and helping them resolve conflicts and anxieties. I help families strengthen their relationships through honesty and open communication, so that they can overcome conflicts together.

Sometimes the difficulties occurring in a family are systemic - which means that there is not really a 'problem person' but a family interaction malfunction. In family counselling, it is understood that everyone in the family impacts and affects everyone else and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It is also understood that the way to 'fix' a family problem is not by simply changing specific behaviours, but by changing the structure of the family. This can be a very important process for the many different types of families that we have in our society.

Family therapy is in many ways the most difficult of all therapy’s simply because you have the issues of not just one person but also all involved. There is a multiplication factor equal to the number within the family plus the dynamic of how the family organizes itself around communication, conflict, and intimacy and supports it. All successful families do two things extremely well . . . create a sense of belonging and allow for the freedom to be an individual. When I work with families I bring over twenty five years of experience to every session. Almost 100% of us across the nation . . . when asked what is the most important thing in our life, will answer ‘family’!

Every family is different, but every family deserves to feel love. When this is not the case, it is time to change things up. Everyone in the family is important and deserves to be heard, understood and respected. Together, we can make this happen. This is important because this will open the doors to the needed healing and the formation of healthy expectations and boundaries that will help make sharing your love for each other easier.

In family therapy, the focus is on the interactions of those that are affected by the presenting concern and strengthening relationships of the family system. Although some concerns may appear to apply to one individual, involvement of family can have positive benefits on both the individual and overall family functioning. While family therapy may often focus on child-parent relationships, other loved ones such as grandparents, caregivers, siblings etc. are invited to attend where you see fit. As the therapist, I strive to help facilitate a space in which each family member has equal opportunity to share their experiences and perspectives. Contact me today to book a free consultation.

Throughout our time together, we will work to make each member’s voice heard, find ways of communication that feel helpful, and establish and restore connection.

We all learn differently, express differently, and quite often perceive experiences differently because we bring a different "lens" and that is why your counsellor needs to be CREATIVE and FLEXIBLE. As parents we feel a deep responsibility to be these great parents and raise remarkable kids, but life isn't so easy and we are far from perfect. We need to give ourselves a break sometimes because we are only doing the best we can with what we have. Sometimes we just need a little help along the way. No matter how large your family is, lets find solutions and have FUN while we are doing it!

Family counselling can lead to a more harmonious and healthy dynamic for family members. Having an increased ability to communicate emotions effectively can lead to increased understanding of needs and wants and likewise lead to healthier discussions of boundaries. Topics that are difficult to discuss in the family can be discussed with my support once safety and boundaries are established in the therapeutic relationship. This can lead to a happier family dynamic once topics that were previously unspoken have been addressed. Increased skills such as interpersonal communication and emotional regulation leads to improved parenting and improved overall family dynamic.

Each family is different, and all families have problems from time to time. But when the problems happen more than you want, or the problems seem so overwhelming that you wonder if it will ever get better, I can help. Family therapy is about learning to express yourself in a manner that works. Its about learning to listen, and hear what matters to the other. Balance is so important. Parents need to be parents, and kids need to be kids, but I can help you find that balance that lets you get the family back on track, and improve the quality of living for all!

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.
