Each family has its own unique personality that impacts the functioning of its members. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic models and the approach I take will be catered to your family dynamics and the special challenges that brought you here today. When working with the family, I help improve their ability communicate openly to challenging issues and work through ups and downs in their relationships.

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.

Most people want their family to be a place of unconditional love and acceptance. However, it's easy to develop blind spots that prevent us from recognizing our our contribution to the family's challenges. If you are struggling to resolve an issue within your family, I can help support and guide you as you work toward a more peaceful resolution.

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!

As an individual and couples counsellor I do not do a lot of family counselling, however, I am comfortable having your family come to my home office and discuss your current challenges. We can look at your communication patterns as well was what is working well and what is not working well. With this exploration we can work to shift the way you each see the situation.

Family therapy works with the awareness that each human being is not merely an individual, but is also a part of many social groups or social systems. All families are different!  That is why as a therapist I ensure treatment remains flexible in whatever way makes sense with each individual family to solve the problem quickly and effectively. Family therapy is an effective treatment modality because it harnesses the power of the family to heal itself.

Families are unique, and as we all know, they can be very complicated. This is normal, as is the fact that sometimes they require help to navigate such complications. A great deal of my therapeutic work and experience over the past 20 years has been helping families with their expressed difficulties regardless of what those may be. Family Therapy at Growth Counselling Services provides all members of the family unit with a comfortable and safe environment that allows each member to express their perspectives and concerns free of judgment. Together, we will rediscover your families inner strengths and potential for positive change as individuals, and as a family unit. Call today.

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!!!

If you are a family member of someone who is struggling with their mental health, addiction or sexual abuse, feeling at a loss as to how to support your loved one is not uncommon. It's also not uncommon to not be focusing on yourself and how this is affecting you as an individual, as well as your relationship with the loved one. Through open communication and validation of each individuals perspective, we can collaborate to find ways in which the family can support one another through difficult transitions. This includes setting boundaries and learning how to maintain these, understanding healthy versus unhealthy attachment in your relationships with your family members (co-dependency).

In N2N 0A1 - Nearby to Wellesley.

As families, we need to come together in ways we feel respected. Trust is the binding force. Many couples have never learned to communicate well. I use tools to help families build trust, respect, and listening. A family also needs to know what is working and how to build each other up. We need to see what we love in one another. As a Christian, I offer faith-based work if needed. I never push my beliefs. My training is interfaith. We need faith in each other as families. Not insured. Fees are flexible. If you are they covered under most plans

Family Counselling creates the space for individuals to come together and discuss their problems and goals for their relationship. There is no such thing as a perfect family. Every family has their own issues with dynamics, expectations, communication and boundaries. Through family counselling each individual can discuss their concerns in a safe space, and learn different techniques, tools and strategies to be able to become closer.

Each family is different, and all families have problems from time to time. But when the problems happen more than you want, or the problems seem so overwhelming that you wonder if it will ever get better, I can help. 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. Parents need to be parents, and kids need to be kids, but I can help you find that balance that lets you get the family back on track, and improve the quality of living for all!

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
