Many families experience breakdown in communication leading to strong emotions, disconnection and a decrease in empathy. The primary goal of family therapy is to focus on the family unit as a whole system of individuals and their interpersonal communication patterns. Family therapy seeks to clarify roles, increase empathic interaction and encourage more adaptable behaviours among the family members. The core belief of family therapy is that any changes that occur with one member of the family unit impacts the family structure as a whole leading to positive changes in each member of the family unit. Our role as a family therapist is to: * Assist your family members to better understand h....

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.

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 should be the place where we feel connected and start to learn how to resolve conflict but often it is where people are most exposed to conflict. When family is not a stable source of positive influence or support, people need to gain resilience in other ways. People come to therapy to resolve fears of rejection, low self- esteem, and feelings of defiance or opposition which may affect them in future relationships too. The goal is to reduce conflict while beginning to resolve past conflicts. Another goal is to achieve reasonable family connectedness where family members can support, help or count on each other.

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.

Families...a place of refuge and joy for some, and a place of conflict, despair, and tragedy for others. If you and your family find your selves in less than ideal circumstances, meeting together with a counsellor can open to future to a different way of relating. I invite you to consider the opportunity to be guided in a time of genuinely hearing each other and of being heard. Though history can not be changed, the meaning and the impact on family functioning today can evolve towards more life-giving understandings and ways of being family together. Entrenched patterns often leave us stuck...naming these patterns and learning new skills can rekindle hopefulness and good will.

Every family is a unique system with their own dynamics. Each member can be thought of as an important piece to a puzzle. Learning how all the pieces fit together in a family unit is helpful to its overall function and health. At times, the family dynamic is affected by experiences such as trauma, substance abuse, death, divorce, or a health diagnoses. Family sessions aim to provide a safe and supportive space, focusing on the building of healthy connectivity and communication through these difficult and challenging seasons. It provides structured opportunity for each family member to have their voice heard, and create or learn boundaries on how to respect each others individuality.

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.
