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.

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.

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.

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

None of us grow up in a vacuum sealed container free of the influences of others. The most powerful influences are our family, both past and present. AND rarely is the distress leading a person to seek counseling in isolation from family. Typically the distress in drenched in relational dynamics. The most powerful and enduring change takes place in the context of relationships. Even if the family is not present for all counseling, the family perspective is critical to take into account. When family members can be present, counseling can often be the most productive. Larger families may require longer than typical sessions.
