Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.

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.

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. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation to ensure we are a good fit.

As a parent or caregiver it may be confusing about meeting the needs and children and youth with mental health difficulties. Children and youth may function well at home, but struggle in school or peer situations. Some may struggle with depression or anxiety, while others struggle with issues of anger management, substance use, or defiance. I will work with your family to develop healthy communication skills, set appropriate boundaries, and if necessary create a behaviour management plan.

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.

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.

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.

Gestalt therapy is a systems‐oriented, immediate‐experience‐oriented, and affect‐oriented therapy that is highly effective for families. Unlike other therapies, gestalt regards the client system's emergent processes as the central focus, and it emphasizes that growth occurs as the family and its members are helped to greater self‐awareness and responsibility for their own functioning. Dynamic forces within your family may need some the maintenance. How can a sense of peace and equilibrium be brought back into your home? I am not afraid to work with intense emotional outbreaks. I can help support family unity with strength and care! Develop better ways of communicating with each other!

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.

Family dynamics can be challenging to navigate even during the best of times, and family therapy can help each member of the family unit find new ways to relate, connect, and communicate with each other. Giving each family member the chance to feel heard and valued while also navigating external stressors like work and school can be a struggle, so I work collaboratively with clients to identify and explore patterns of interaction that they want to strengthen or change, while highlighting each member’s contributions, and celebrating the family’s successes. Book a free consultation to learn more about my approach and explore if we are a good fit.

Family life is filled with developmental stages and many changes. Navigating through these changes can be challenging at times. Psychotherapy can help families gain greater understanding of each other and discover new ways to communicate. It is my goal to provide a safe place for families to come together to share their experience and work together on their common goal. It would be an honor to work with you.

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.

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+.

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.

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!!!

Imagine a family as a tree with branches, roots, trunk representing parts of the immediate and extended family. When working with families, all elements are considered. Usually there is a request for family therapy due to one of it's members in crisis, often a child. However, when an analysis of need is done it becomes apparent that more than one member of the family needs help in adjusting, growing and learning new behaviours. Clients contact me for a variety of reasons: to improve communications, solve family problems, support in special situations such as death, divorce, marriage, illness, child or adolescent issues.

We all learn differently, express differently, and quite often perceive experiences differently because we bring a different "lens" and that is why your counsellor needs to be CREATIVE and FLEXIBLE. As parents we feel a deep responsibility to be these great parents and raise remarkable kids, but life isn't so easy and we are far from perfect. We need to give ourselves a break sometimes because we are only doing the best we can with what we have. Sometimes we just need a little help along the way. No matter how large your family is, lets find solutions and have FUN while we are doing it!

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.
