Family Therapy (FT) is close to my heart because it was one of the first therapies I became practiced in. Family Therapy often involves attachment issues for children. My approach is to educate family members on various issues and the impacts of their behaviours on other members of the family. I require a strong commitment from all members of the family to be willing to change behaviours for the benefit of the entire family to improve family functioning over the long term.

Families often need support around issues including grief and loss, family break-up, life transitions, substance use, illness, parent-teen conflict, communication, among other issues. I work with families to help them to shift patterns that are leading to conflict and are challenging the closeness of the relationships. My aim is to support families to strengthen their bonds and to transform their relationships. I work with families of all ages including young children as well as adult children.

Family therapy uses a specialized approach to bring in one, two or more family members and work together and in a non-blaming way to consider what changes might make the hard things easier. As a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist I have specialized skills and experience to use family therapy approaches geared to each unique family context, that help people use their strengths to support growth and create effective changes in their lives. Counselling may involve directed conversations and specific and creative interventions to explore dynamics and practice more effective relationship and communication skills. Family therapy is generally brief, results-oriented, and cost-effective.

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.

In my practice I work with families to problem solve around the barriers that are preventing them from connecting in a meaningful way. While utilizing an attachment theory based approach families will learn to redefine their relationships and learn to communicate with each other in a way that allows stronger bonds.

Doing family therapy allows each member's voice to be heard and counted. Everyone participating is permitted to share their own personal feelings unique perspective, express what is needed or necessary to be said, even to the extent of challenging status quo in the family. Everyone's input and voice are considered to be equals no matter the age or status held in the family. The outcome of family therapy can be rewarding enough for blind spots to be highlighted and greater insights recognized like never before. More than anything it is participating as an important contributor to a much healthier family dynamic.

I support one individual adult in a problematic family unit and do not communicate with other members of the family directly unless I have explicit permission to do so. This approach is especially helpful when there may be emotional, verbal, or more obvious forms of abuse taking place within a family unit. I specialize in helping the individual to define what they want for themselves and the family and to implement action steps in order to achieve his/her goals.

No matter who is involved, relationships are difficult. Family members, in-laws, or spouses, can all produce challenging situations, and we often need help to navigate these interactions in order to emerge with a successful and healthy relationship. Communication problems, conflict styles, and levels of trust are often at the heart of a dysfunctional relationship. Developing each of these skills is critical in the development of functional and nurturing relationships.

Family Therapy initiates an awareness of and a respect for the very different reality and experience held by each family members. it facilitates awareness of the uniqueness of each family member's individual identity, rather than promoting individual family members as a reflection of the other. Understanding unfolds such that family members are capable of developing a map of reality that reflects the awareness of, and respect for, the important needs of each family member .

Family relationships can be some of the strongest connections we experience in our lifetime; however, when these relationships undergo strain, we can be left feeling disconnected and distressed. Family Counselling can allow some or all family members to begin exploring their challenges together, and ultimately strengthen the family bond by allowing each member to feel heard and understood in a safe, unbiased environment.

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.

In K4M 0A1 - Nearby to Russell.

Usually a client's challenges are directly related to their position in their family constellation. Particularly in dysfunctional familes certain members are relegated to restrictive roles and behaviours. For example, the one with a temper, the hider, the denier, the scape-goat, etc. It is sometimes imperative to see the whole family in one or more sessions to truly identify the malfunction and to treat this particular family member. When the therapist is imbedded right in the family observing the "family dance" then the chances are vastly improved that the therapist can identify the family perturbance and empower the family to implement more successful dynamics.

Understanding the dynamic that exists between family members in the family system is a very important first step for helping familiesa achieve their therapeutic goals. Elim counsellors have done advanced studies in Family Systems Theory and are able to identify dynamics between family members and guide family members to conclusions that are necessary if unwanted dynamics are to be changed. By using this approach, family members are able to move away from unhealthy patterns of blaming each other and become more focus on changing unwanted dynamics.
