Most of my experience has been in providing family therapy. If you are interested in family therapy, I start by completing a thorough family assessment. For the assessment process, I require that all family members living in the household attend. This will be an opportunity for each family member to express concerns that are unique to them. After hearing everyone's concerns, I make a formulation. My formulation is my hypothesis on what factors may be contributing to your family dynamics. I then offer a treatment goal that is agreed upon by all family members.

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.

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

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.

Living within a family, is very much like a team effort - if someone is not doing well, others suffer. Families also have a wealth of power to help, support and encourage and be a practice ground for each family member to develop and grow - no matter how young or old. My approach in working with families is to help sort out what is working and what is not and help family members engage in more positive communication, increased problem solving and mutually nurturing relationships.

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.

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.

When you stub your toe, your whole body acts to react to the pain. Likewise, when member(s) of the family hurt, the whole family is impacted. Drawing from family systems theory, I work with families to uncover and understand the unspoken emotional chain reactions that take place when the family is stressed, identify unhelpful patterns, and help family members find effective ways to work together as a cohesive unit to accomplish their goals.

We have excellent therapists at our clinic that work with both relationships and couples, and family therapy. Family dynamics can be tricky, and having a skilled therapist who can help you understand those dynamics is key. But understanding is not enough, a key to success in the family is knowing how to live happily with the challenges and create new ways of being a family that bring you closer together and support a peaceful and loving environment. Give us a call for a chat, and lets see if we 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.

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.

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.
