I would use the Systems Theory and Narrative approach to help families communicate what they view as the concerns within their family. Also using Middle Path, from DBT, as an approach to bridge the dialectical views between the individuals in the family which is causing conflict. Validating the different perspectives as individuals and looking for the kernal of truth, allows them to see the bigger picture through the lens of other members within the family.

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.

Families are constantly growing and changing. Just when parents feel they have a handle on a stage, something changes and the rules change. Communication, empathy, and compassion are needed in order to navigate family dynamics effectively. Especially tough times are supporting the independance of teenagers while maintaining safety and a positive relationship. Together we will create a safe environment where everyone feels heard and respected so that we can explore relationship patterns, reactions, and resilience. We will focus on what's working and build on your family's unique strengths.

I believe that families should be a place where love, respect, value, care, support and encouragement are received consistently. Where children honour and obey their parents and parents are considerate and understanding towards their children as they strategically and intentionally raise their children. Through counseling, I can help to develop healthy relationships between family members in general and between parents and children specifically. It is possible to have a healthy and happy family.

Families can experience stress, conflict and fall apart at any stages of the life cycle. Blended families also pose a great deal of stress no matter what the age is of the children involved. I meet with families as a group to explore areas which are causes distress. I offer support to immediate and extended family to regain balanced family ties. Through offering everyone a chance to express themselves and reflect on problems that interfere with family relationships we will work through issues to offer resolutions and peace of mind.

Family therapy is a wonderful way to tackle family issues. It usually means learning to communicate differently and more effectively. Each family has its spoken and unspoken family rules. Helping these unspoken rules to become more visible or to revise current ones, can clarify misconceptions and assumptions. Since every family has unique problems, they also have unique solutions as well! Therapy can help a family to "see themselves in a whole new light" and realize they have everything they need to make their lives even better.

Are you tired of feeling like you have to 'keep the peace' in your family? Or perhaps you're wanting to address feeling like the family 'scapegoat' or black 'sheep'? Or maybe theres an 'elephant in the room' that no one is talking about and you think it's time to address it? Family therapy can help your family break patterns that are no longer serving them and open up possibilities for role change. Being a family takes work, let's work together to build a foundation for the gratifying family relationships you all deserve. I am particularly honoured to partner with families with LGBTQ+, polyamorous and neurodivergent (ADHD/Autistic) members.

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.

If you drive with a flat tire the whole system is affected. Your car will not go smoothly nor straight. You use lots of effort trying to get to where you want to go; and the passengers are stressed! The same happens in families. If there is a problem with one or more family members, we tend to point at him/ her/ them. We want to "fix" them. However, I believe there are more than one way to look at the same situation: it is usually a systemic problem. Join the whole family in therapy. In a safe and friendly environment, you can each be heard and seen as you really are, and together arrive at a solution. This can be a very rewarding, educational, FUN and loving experience for all.

Working with families is assessed on a case by case basis in my practice. If your family is assessed as a good fit for my practice we will work together to support problem-solving, increase clear communication, reduce tension and increase ease between family members. I also work with parents to understand the complex needs of babies, children, youth, and young adults by learning and practicing tools to support compassionate parenting. In my individual practice, I work with clients to understand the complexities of family systems, how to navigate boundary setting with family members, and we work together to practice tools that support healing wounds created from trauma within families.

Family counselling with me uses a Family Systems and circle approach. This means we will discuss family dynamics and each family member’s role in it, what need this meets and how to relate in a healthier way. I also use a circle approach to ensure all family members have a voice and can share in a safe, caring space that we will create together.
