Families are under tremendous pressure to function well together without having the skills to do that. I work with the family to develop skills in listening, appreciation, working more effectively as a team.In our current over-scheduled, over-pressured world, families are confronting problems they have little capacity to do anything about. We can tend to cope by getting stuck in a narrow range of behaviors and responses even if they are not helpful. A child who has learned to have temper tantrums when she is angry, and her parents who have learned to punish or pamper her, are stuck in maladaptive, non-growthful environments—‘a bad play’. It’s like playing the same part in the same play on the....

My approach to helping families stems from The Originator of Families who has provided written instructions on how families should operate in today's society. I provide sessions specifically designed with this in mind. Families who are struggling will greatly benefit from sessions that I give on How to have a Happy and United Family. Each family member will learn or be reminded of their assigned role in the family arrangement and how they can benefit by contributing to a Happy and Stable Family Life.

Being a relationship therapist means that I believe that the systems we live in (especially our families) are key to our mental health. My training gives me perspective on how best to help you fix the damage that has been done within the family, and to help you move forward better than ever. Whether you come in to therapy by yourself, with a partner, or with a family member, we can work on whatever family issues you need to work through.

Distressed family members too often exclusively focus their efforts on changing their difficult sibling, parent, grandparent or in-law. This is ineffective. Difficult family members often resist such efforts. I teach each family member how to first work on changing their own self-defeating emotional and behavioral reactions in response to their difficult family members. Once someone calms down and not gets so upset about the other people in their family they can influence other people to find better ways to live with or at least gracefully tolerate each other. I show each family member how to work on themselves in order to have a better chance of influencing others. Think about this.

Family therapy can be a place where all members of a family are safe to discuss their concerns. It is also a place where you can hear each other in new and surprising ways. Being willing to hear, understand and respond to the surprising feelings behind the anger or withdrawal that blocks closeness in your family can set the stage for more cooperation, compromise and a new strategy for interacting without hurt. I will help you do the work of connecting emotionally and strategizing about new ways to cope with old problems. Call me for an appointment to discuss your family's particular difficulties. As a therapist, a wife, and a mother of teenagers, I bring professional and personal resources.

Families come in all forms especially in our changing times. The stresses of life show up in our families lives. Families change over time. Dealing with young children is different than a family with teenagers or no children at all. We need to negotiate these changes in our families. At REACH Counseling we believe in the strength of families and helping families to communicate and connect at a deeper level. We specialize in exploring what intergenerational patterns are affecting your family, how you may be dealing with transitions and how you can make your family strong.

Families of loved ones are often very affected by those with mental health disorders and substance use disorders. There are so many questions and its difficult to know how to support your loved one without enabling. At the same time, your own mental health can take a toll with trying to help them get well. I work individually with families to answer their questions, learn how to properly support their loved ones. I also work with the families of the individuals with mental health or substance use disorders in order to open up lines of communication and re-establish feelings of peace and connection in the family.

Families are fascinating paradoxes. The health of the family system is connected to the interactions among individual family members. I provide a safe place for family members to talk and listen to each other, to express feelings honestly without criticism. Families often come to therapy because of a crisis that has become too overwhelming. In family therapy, we will look at family dynamics, alliances, communication styles, goals and expectations, boundaries, trust issues, behaviors, ways of dealing with conflict. Our goal is to heal the family system.

Family Therapy can be an incredible modality in shifting an entire family from unhealthy dynamics and unhappiness to peace and healthy relationships. Since my primary specialty is Addiction, I see many families with this obstacle. The solution often is not only that the addict needs to change but the entire family system. My passion is working with families and seeing this beautiful transformation come from such despair.

Families are very interesting and fun to work with. Every family has a unique and powerful strength to survive any obstacle. That strength can be hard to find if it is covered by years of loss, pain, and/or trauma. I offer a systemic, structural family therapy model that helps families communicate more effectively, develop appropriate boundaries, create trusting and fulfilling relationships, and establish healthy attachments in order to make the home environment more enjoyable.

Coming to counseling as a family is one of the bravest and more challenging steps that people who love each other can take. Often times, an event or specific incident will motivate a family to seek therapy. Whether your family is working through a specific crisis or hoping to improve overall relationships, I can help. I will work with your family to identify patterns that result in the same problems repeating. Once those patterns are recognized, we can break the negative cycles and create new, more effective ways of coping with challenges.

The late Erma Bombeck wrote, "Family - The Ties that Bind . . . and Gag!" So it is. In Family Systems Therapy, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts in that each member of the family influences and is influenced by every other member of the family. Most of these influences are outside of conscious awareness. Bringing unconscious patterns of relationship and emotional reactions to light is the benefit of family work. Family therapy complements individual therapy because, as one member of the family seeks change, the family system will respond in a way that naturally seeks constancy. Making change difficult. I love supporting parents create lasting change in their homes!

I love when children/teens and their parents all come in together. Some worry it will be awkward but I make a point to have it be relaxed and conversational. I help parents understand the social culture and stressors impacting their kids' lives, as well as help them express their concerns in ways that don't feel like lectures to their kids. In turn, I help kids to articulate their struggles in ways that their parents can appreciate and empathize with. Respect and responsibility is an important part of any work I do with families, and helping parents to balance their expressions of compassion with their need to hold their kids accountable is always part of the conversation.
