I address Family Therapy a little differently than a lot of counselors. Since I believe that a family is a "system" I encourage family members to explore the differences in their roles in the system, and how those roles have changed prior to and after the problems and issues have surfaced. I then go about teaching techniques of open communication, which over time, will hopefully reestablish proactive roles.

I believe that it is critical for families to be involved in therapy in some form or another, no matter what the issue is. Even in cases where one family member suffers from a malady like depression, job loss, panic attacks, or other issues, it is the family that can be either the greatest resource or greatest obstacle (usually unintentionally) to the suffering member or members of the family in overcoming their adversity. Family relationships themselves are often strained to the point of resentment and estrangement. I feel honored to enter into the lives of families to observe interactions, provide feedback, and help build relationships to be even better than they have been before.

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.

Every person in a family affects every other person, and each person has their own unique perception of the problems at hand. Children's behavior affects siblings as well as adults, and problems between parents effect the children. I work comfortably with couples and their children as well as extended family, both individually as well as a whole. The family is a system, and counseling the entire family is a great way to understand each person's individual perception of the issues at hand and work toward a common goal!

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

I will work with you and your family in a collaborative way allowing each member to speak freely about their own views of the situation(s). I work on active listening for each member so everyone understands each other and are working together. Depending on the issues and stages of growth for each member, I strive to allow everyone to develop themselves in positive ways which enhance the family unit. The goals for therapy are yours to set, but I hope to provide growth that will continue past therapy and allow for future healthy resolutions.

I specialize in working with families, primarily adult and older adult members to heal old wounds and work toward better and more fulfilling relationships. Family is important and life is too short to waste time with misunderstanding. I utilize a Family Systems approach understanding that everyone's life and their decisions affect multiple people around them, especially their family.

Family therapy is very important in terms of appreciating those with whom we share life, forgiving, communicating assertively and compassionately, setting appropriate boundaries, resolving conflicts, creating positive patterns and life experiences, and removing obstacles to growth and development. Through systemic family therapy, we understand generational patterns, inherited characteristics and tendencies, what symptoms may have gained for us in the past, and what we can do to have satisfying lives without dysfunctional symptoms. New healthy coping mechanisms help all family members to create positive patterns for life and satisfying relationships in the present and future.
