Families are built on deep-rooted emotional bonds. When you feel disconnected from your family, it's likely due to trauma. The family can impact people profoundly. Many times people within the unit seek approval and validation from one another. When those aren't received, it can cause lasting damage, mainly when it involves a child needing a parent's reassurance.

Families are remarkably resilient and have wonderful potential to heal one another. They typically develop patterns and structural characteristic over great periods of time that enable them to respond to both stressors from outside and inside the family. Helping families look at their patterns in novel ways, empowers them to make small and sometimes simple changes, greatly impacting outcomes. Family therapy is all about learning more about the patterns that keep families suspended when they desire change. In addition, family therapy harnesses the power and uniqueness of each family to recover and grow as a unit.

Family therapy often benefits from a client-centered approach. Throughout our sessions, we will focus on communication and the openness to share one’s feelings honestly. Using exercises, we will work on improving communication, listening skills and emotional honesty. The use of behavior therapy may also be incorporated where we seek to recognize and change destructive behavior patterns. Use of these approaches encourages families to engage in healthy communication styles and break habitual cycles of unhealthy behaviors.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 is an important part of life. They can be the greatest support in good and bad times. Together, we go through life’s transitions and celebrate our accomplishments. At the same time, family can be a source of problems and challenges, when either of our needs or expectations are not met. As a marriage and family therapist, I will work with you and your family to listen to each other’s perspectives in a safe space. I will explore with you alternative ways of relating with one another. Family therapy can be an opportunity for you and your family to reconnect with each other and grow together.

Family therapy can feel really complicated when you are immersed in the chaos and the crisis of the moment. I did not come from a squeacky clean background but a family full of chaos and fighting. Unfortunately we didn't understand how to fight nicely! I had to learn that much later in life while repairing my own marriage and family! Understanding the academic side of the dysfunction of my family through experience has helped assist others mend their own families.

Marianne and Ray use the Satir method of family therapy. We believe that when parents are having issues with their children a whole family approach is advisable. We use a warm and nurturing approach. The emphasis is on improving communication amongst all family members. Everyone's voice gets heard and conflict resolution is generally easily attainable.

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.

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.

A common problem that I see when helping families is that parents struggle to get their kids to finish tasks, stay organized, and cannot motivate them to do, well, anything. “Unless it’s YouTube or a video game they’re just not interested and I don’t want them always depend on me for everything.” There are a number of tools and methodologies that can help with these problems. It does take time and commitment; however, with the right support and guidance easier, friction-free, happier days are very possible.

Treating family issues using a systems approach is highly successful! We try to change ourselves but when we do this others dig their heals in and the outcome can be quite challenging. Did you know - you are already well on your way to change because 'when one person changes, everyone around them must change'. Managing and understanding the dynamics and involving all players is key with Family Therapy!!!

Family counseling is a very powerful tool to assist a family in distress to understand the dynamics that are part and parcel of the human experience and to make choices toward a more balanced family experience. Appreciating that we live in times when family constellations are varied and diverse, what remains the same is that 'the family' provides a context in which we all desire to feel safe, loved and loving.

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.

My background in relational therapy allows me to understand individuals through the relationships they cohabit. Families come in various forms and sizes, and at times, navigating through these relational dynamics and understanding differing perspectives may be difficult. 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. Please reach out for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit.

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+.
