Using a Systemic Family Therapy Model, families are assisted in addressing issues that arise across the life span. An issues may present itself in one member of the family (ie. addictions, depression or other health issues) or within the family itself (ie. parent child conflict, parent discord, or sibling issues) . Family therapy supports the family in examining the family functioning, while watching for patterns of interactions that support the family in its management of the issue in either positive or destructive ways. Family therapy supports families to address the issue in a systemic manner that allows for more positive interactions that sustain healthier family functioning.

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.

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.

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.
