The bonds in the family are interconnected, and Family Therapy is a great way to strengthen those bonds and also understand how old patterns of being actually cover up some of the most important feelings and needs that have never been expressed. I approach Family Therapy through working closely with each relationship in order to shed light on both how they functions together, but also to make room for growth and acceptance. Families are crucial for our survival, and understanding how much we need each other goes a long way to building and re-building close and secure ties.

Therapy can provide a safe environment for families that seek to repair their relationships. The problems generally stem from a much earlier time, when it was hard for family members to understand the nature of their conflict. Each person often has felt hurt and misunderstood, and these feelings have perpetuated over time. My approach is to encourage dialogue between them to help them understand the dynamics that have prevented a fulfilling relationship. I also try to establish the positive intentions of the work they are about to do. Therapy is intended to give them insight into what went wrong and how to repair the relationship while working through the difficult feelings and mistrust.

Communication.empathy and forgiveness work are a primary focus in family therapy with me. We work with many modalities including Traditional talk therapy: Giving space for the family to explore and express feelings, own awareness’s, transform thoughts, grieve, vent, and neutralize guilt, anger and fear. New understandings and thus new neural pathways and patterns begin to form. This is a profoundly transformational set of tools that can bring families to stronger places of connection and union.

It is family stability that provides a secure base from which your teenager can venture into the world. No matter which face your teenager wears, they all have in common an enormous underlying anxiety (about their changing bodies, fitting in, achieving, etc). Through parent and teen counselling, we can help save you and your family from even more turmoil. Successful Parenting is about helping develop in our children a sense of self and a sense of belonging.If you are a separated or divorced parent there are many added complications. When your teenagers have two families to be part of their are lots of added stresses for everyone. As a family therapist with 30 years of experience, I can help

Our families can benefit from family therapy when they experience any stressful event that puts pressure on family relationships, such as financial hardship, family fractures or break ups, or the death of a loved one. Some issues we would focus on in family sessions are improving communication and solving conflicts, exploring ways we can support a family member who is experiencing difficulties, and how to grow stronger moving forward. It can seem like a monumental task. However with hope, optimism and commitment families can get better.

Family Therapy can mean one of two things, generally speaking: 1) A client who wishes to process the affect their family (via their childhood or present-day events) has had on them. 2) Multiple members of a family unit (partial or whole) , who wish to -- in a way similar to couples counselling -- work out their problems. I am comfortable working with either scenario, however I do have a limit on the number of people I can fit in my office (4). If I'm working with multiple members of a family, I will often make available the opportunity to work with members individually as well as a whole.

Family counselling takes into account all members of the family, because you all affect each other. In addition, blended families have special challenges that stem from two styles and two sets of rules. It's tough to get the balance just right, but it can be done. I also have experience with kids and teens with oppositional defiant disorder. Let me help you improve the functioning of your family. Your long term happiness is at stake.

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.

Depression is not something to be ashamed of , nor is it a character flaw or a sign of a weak personality. No one with depression can just "snap out of it". You wouldn't ask someone to "snap out of diabetes or some other illness, and you cannot expect it of a person with depression. Everyone gets sad sometimes - a brief blue mood, feelings of disappointment or loss. The great news is that up to 80% of people who recieve proper treatment improve as a result. There are two principle modes of treatment for depression - Psychotherapy and medication. Your not alone, millions of families and friends have felt exactly like you. Your one step closer to change

Family dynamics can be challenging at the best of times. They are also quite difficult to change when inside the family itself. Having an unbiased third party listen to all individuals involved may help identify the key underlying issues. Action plans may be set up and codes of conduct may be specified that will allow people to believe that change is possible. By taking concrete steps forward, family members are triggered less often and engage in undesired behaviours less frequently. This process also will give a voice to those who may otherwise not be heard.

Family therapy is an effective treatment and can be complementary to individual therapy. The aim of family therapy is to develop insight and understanding into relationship dynamics and family structures that may be contributing to dysfunction for one or several family members and ultimately identify and develop healthier and adaptive ways to resolve conflict in the family.
