In L9H 7T6 - Nearby to Puslinch.

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!

Every family is complex and unique. There are no cookie cutter solutions but there is hope. I specialize in bringing families together to develop new learning and strategies that will help them to move forward as a more understanding, loving, and hopeful unit. I look forward to working with your family to facilitate open dialogue, understanding, inward introspection, and compassion. Along the way I believe I am able to identify potential solutions and help each family member to meet their mutual goals.

Family therapy can be very helpful in improving communication and reducing conflict, increasing cooperation in the family. I use creative approaches to help families come together and understand each other better. Families going through changes and transitions can benfit from having someone facilitate communication and cooperative problem solving.

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.

In L9C 7N4 - Nearby to Puslinch.

For over 10 years, my approach is very much client-centred, drawing from both Family Systems and Solution-Focused theories. I also use psychoeducation and Play Therapy in sessions. I have found these approaches widely accepted by previous clients who seem to want to gain understanding as to why things were occurring in their relationships, but also quickly wanted to press on towards practical solutions.

Sherry enjoys helping families understand one another and implement changes that will improve the family dynamics. She meets with the individuals who are part of the family system, listens to their issues and concerns, and then brings everyone together to discuss the issues and, when needed, develop a plan. When the group meeting takes place, she ensures that everyone is emotionally safe by establishing 'guidelines for respectful discussion'.

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!

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.

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.

Healthy family units require good communication and understanding of one another’s emotional needs. Although the individuals within the family unit are the same, life scenarios, environment and circumstances change over time and may impact each family member differently that may lead to complications for one or more individuals within the family unit. I am here to help you and your loved ones through life changes and any challenges that may have developed among the family unit causing friction within one or more family member’s relationships.

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.

Families are immersed in issues and transformative experiences that give rise to personal stories that shape the identity of each member within it and the group as a whole. Although the issues may be diverse, opportunity exists to construct new narratives capable of not only resolving them, but producing new changes, directions, and purpose in life. As a practitioner of narrative therapy, a therapy often used with families to reauthor dominant stories upheld through an integration of new perspectives, it is my pleasure to be able to collaborate in assisting with the first steps towards this.

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’!

Registered Clinical Social Worker

In N1E 4J3 - Nearby to Puslinch.

Through my work experiences and studies, I have discovered that healthy families are built through healthy emotional connections. This means all members of the family must be emotionally vulnerable, attuned and responsive to each other. Parents and children often find this most difficult during the teenage years when the child begins to gain autonomy. The changes in the child's behaviour and emotional needs can lead to parent-teen conflict. I have expertise in engaging youth, enhancing parent-child relationships, reducing parent-teen conflict and child/ adolescent behavioural issues. I provide free 15 minute consults, so you can decide if the services I provide are the right fit for you.

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.

Conflict in families is a normal part of our life but situations can arise which make navigating the road of life difficult. Experiencing parent/teen difficulties? Teens have a developmental task of separating from their parents, and life at this stage can produce conflict. This does not take away from the fact that good parents are the key to producing resilient teens. Perhaps conflict is due to different parenting styles in a blended family. There are many factors which go into making a happy stress free home. Seeking help in a safe and caring environment is sometimes needed to achieve this goal.
