Family Therapy (FT) is close to my heart because it was one of the first therapies I became practiced in. Family Therapy often involves attachment issues for children. My approach is to educate family members on various issues and the impacts of their behaviours on other members of the family. I require a strong commitment from all members of the family to be willing to change behaviours for the benefit of the entire family to improve family functioning over the long term.

In my practice I work with families to problem solve around the barriers that are preventing them from connecting in a meaningful way. While utilizing an attachment theory based approach families will learn to redefine their relationships and learn to communicate with each other in a way that allows stronger bonds.

Usually a client's challenges are directly related to their position in their family constellation. Particularly in dysfunctional familes certain members are relegated to restrictive roles and behaviours. For example, the one with a temper, the hider, the denier, the scape-goat, etc. It is sometimes imperative to see the whole family in one or more sessions to truly identify the malfunction and to treat this particular family member. When the therapist is imbedded right in the family observing the "family dance" then the chances are vastly improved that the therapist can identify the family perturbance and empower the family to implement more successful dynamics.

Understanding the dynamic that exists between family members in the family system is a very important first step for helping familiesa achieve their therapeutic goals. Elim counsellors have done advanced studies in Family Systems Theory and are able to identify dynamics between family members and guide family members to conclusions that are necessary if unwanted dynamics are to be changed. By using this approach, family members are able to move away from unhealthy patterns of blaming each other and become more focus on changing unwanted dynamics.

Doing family therapy allows each member's voice to be heard and counted. Everyone participating is permitted to share their own personal feelings unique perspective, express what is needed or necessary to be said, even to the extent of challenging status quo in the family. Everyone's input and voice are considered to be equals no matter the age or status held in the family. The outcome of family therapy can be rewarding enough for blind spots to be highlighted and greater insights recognized like never before. More than anything it is participating as an important contributor to a much healthier family dynamic.

Family Therapy initiates an awareness of and a respect for the very different reality and experience held by each family members. it facilitates awareness of the uniqueness of each family member's individual identity, rather than promoting individual family members as a reflection of the other. Understanding unfolds such that family members are capable of developing a map of reality that reflects the awareness of, and respect for, the important needs of each family member .

Family therapy uses a specialized approach to bring in one, two or more family members and work together and in a non-blaming way to consider what changes might make the hard things easier. As a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist I have specialized skills and experience to use family therapy approaches geared to each unique family context, that help people use their strengths to support growth and create effective changes in their lives. Counselling may involve directed conversations and specific and creative interventions to explore dynamics and practice more effective relationship and communication skills. Family therapy is generally brief, results-oriented, and cost-effective.

They dynamics and complexity of family therapy is best with the model of co-therapy where two counsellors are involved; one with parent(s) and one with other family member(s). Understanding how each member fits within the family system and how the family system operates as a whole is fundamental to relationship repair. Many times these dynamics are further complicated by a blended family situation, which has it's own stressors.

Registered Marriage and family Therapist, Certified EMDR

In K1S 2V8 - Nearby to Gatineau.

When working with families I have found that understanding how that particular family 'system' works is most important. Each family is unique with its own strengths and weakness. I also bring my extensive training in Attachment Theory to understand how each family member connects to the others. Helping each member be 'heard' and respected by the others goes a long way towards resolving issues within the family.
