Family counseling can be necessary when conflicts between siblings or between parents and siblings become disruptive to the family group. When this happens, it is beneficial for the entire family to come in for sessions together. It is important for everyone in the family to give their point of view on the difficulties and say what they feel needs to change. Here are just a few areas that we would cover in family counseling: -Help parents learn to listen to their children -Teach children there are consequences for their choices -Educate parents and children on the importance of being accountable to each other -Help children take responsibility forfor their actions

We are all a product of our environment. Certainly our family of origin made impressions on our way of thinking and guided us in part, to who we have become today. Understanding how our families have impacted us can be very empowering when it comes to our day to day family live. I offer several free assessments to aid in this understanding when you see me for therapy.

I enjoy working with families as they work together in finding solutions and what works for them as a unit. I provide a safe and warm environment where each person of the family can express their feelings, discuss choices and strengths. Each family is different and may experience different issues such as behavioral issues, divorce, separation, blended families, adoption, post adoption, child custody, loss/death etc. I as your therapist promise to work with you as a family unit to help you find solutions and work through problems to help you be your best self.

With my LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist), you can rest assured that I have extensive experience and knowledge of the assessment and treatment of families. Family therapy differs from individual therapy by focusing on how the relationship dynamics are affecting the overall psychological health of family members and the functioning of the family as a whole. Often, one family member is "scapegoated" as the "identified patient," when there are a host of issues that need to be addressed. Boundaries need to be defined in a healthier way, and often the parents need to reexamine their parenting style for better results. Having an objective observer and family coach can be a real asset.

Families sometimes get stuck in ways of relating that are hurtful. When looking at a family, I first understand the stage of development they are at. A young couple with young children is not the same as older couple with teenagers, or adult family that work together. Within each particular context, I try to work and strengthen each subsystem (sibling/parental) as well as the dyadic relationships (father/mother-son/daughter, sibling-sibling). This helps create bonds and special connections among all family members inevitably leading to new positive ways of interacting.

Systemic family therapy views each individual in the family as being an essential part of the family system. Each person in the family impacts everyone else in the family, so therapy which involves the entire family can be incredibly beneficial when working through communication issues or personality differences. Each member of the family has valuable insight to contribute to the process.

Often it is important for both parent(s) and their children to meet with me in order to improve their communication and work together to solve problems. We all make this decision on a case by case basis. The child must feel comfortable with this next step. Usually, this occurs after I've already developed a relationship with the child and we have a foundation of trust.. Then they can practice the strategies and skills that we talk about in therapy while they're at home. I find that this can expedite a child's progress and reap many benefits for the family relationship.

Familes create complicated systems and part of my work is to identify the systems that are in place. Some of what I look for include identifying the roles each member takes, the communication patterns, power issues, where aliances form, the rule system (both spoken and unspoken rules), Family work is both challenging and rewarding as we work together to establish strong family bonds, heal past wounds and improve communication

Sometimes families need a third party to help them communicate and improve family relationships. Whether its because of a change in family structure, a family member's behavior, or parents wishing to improve relationships with their children, I enjoy working with families to encourage open communication and develop healthy boundaries within their family unit.

Family counseling first and foremost provides a safe environment, an unbiased atmosphere where each family member has the time and space to be heard. My job is to ensure civility and respect between family members and between groups of family members within the family unit. I use cognitive/behavior therapy coupled with systems theory, and psychodynamic theory to create a learning environment to enhance change. I am very interactive, sometimes directive and give homework to help keep participants on course with their goals.

Individuals do not exist in a vacuum, everyone is a part of a larger unit. Our closest and most enduring unit is the family unit. As a child we learn to interact much the same way our family interacts. If change is needed in the dynamics of the family unit because of poor communication or an individual problem that has grown to encompass the whole unit then an intervention from the outside can give new perspective and new hope to sometimes a very demoralizing situation.

Working with teens and families is one of my favorite aspects of my practice. Learning about each individual family's culture--the unspoken rules, the traditional ways of communicating and setting boundaries, is the first step to bringing about the changes that many families long for: increased intimacy, improved communication, safety, trust, belonging. We also provide programming for families with an addicted member. Learning ways to deepen insight, improve communication, set strong flexible boundaries and enjoy leaning into a morning or afternoon of self care proves for an empowering opportunity for growth and healing.

Psychotherapist

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.
