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 tends to be short-term treatment, usually several months in length, with a focus on resolving specific problems such as eating disorders, difficulties with school, or adjustments to bereavement, or geographical relocation. In family therapy sessions, all members of the family and the therapist are present at most sessions. The therapists seek to analyze the process of family interaction and communication as a whole; they do not take sides with specific members. They may make occasional comments or remarks intended to help family members become more conscious of patterns or structures that had been previously taken for granted.

In times of crisis family members are likely to be more motivated to step out of old habits that no longer serve them well. I can support you to: • Resolve issues together; • Enhance communication, choosing words that affirm and inspire; • Foster your children and teens' ability to take personal responsibility; • Empower them to make moral choices; • Encourage their self confidence; • Use clear boundaries based on respect, peace and justice; • Perserve your couple time together; • Parent with greater unity; • Parent in single and blended families; and • Deal with separation, and life transitions. This is your opportunity. I am here to help.

Often people experience difficulties with their family of origin. These difficulties can become hurts and wounds, and often experienced (or triggered) throughout one's whole lifetime. Counselling can help individuals understand these wounds, and how they currently play out in life. It can be beneficial to have all family members in the therapy sessions. Just as these wounds were created in early family interactions, they can be healed when explored within the family system within the safe environment of the counselling room.

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.

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.

When working with families I have found that understanding how that particular family 'system' works is most important. Each family is unique with its own strengths and weakness. I also bring my extensive training in Attachment Theory to understand how each family member connects to the others. Helping each member be 'heard' and respected by the others goes a long way towards resolving issues within the family.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

When somebody has a developmental, physical, emotional, cognitive or behavioural disability, the entire family is affected: caregiver burnout, siblings feel stigma about their sibling, sibling to sibling relationships are altered, couples have less time together, holidays are delayed, and crisis sometimes happen. I can help siblings explore their feelings about their sibling in a safe and nonjudgmental space, develop ways to cope with their sibling's special needs, and develop individual wellness plans. I can help families develop family wellness plans, resolve conflicts in a safe and mutually respectful manner, and foster a sense of collaboration and togetherness within the family unit.

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.

I meet with families in "dyads" which means two people at a time, and may also meet members individually because I find this the safest and most effective way to rebuild relationships. For instance if there is conflict between parents and adolescent, I usually would meet with all three first to get a sense of the issues. This session needs to be carefully managed so it is not a blaming session. Subsequently I might meet with the adolescent individually Then have meetings with adolescent and each parent, as well as both parents together focus on those relationships. The goal is to identify and arrest negative cycles, and power struggles and start to address issues in a new way.
