Your family used to be happy, pleasant, and engaged, but now it's not. You have tried to fix it, but it only seems to be getting worse. I have worked with dozens of families helping them get back feeling connected, peaceful, and happy. By identifying each person's goals, validating each person's experience, and clarifying expectations I get families communicating effectively affirming each other, and feeling more connected. In order to get you family on track follow these simple steps: Step 1 - Set up an appointment. Step 2 - Share your concerns. Step 3 - Listen for insights. Do not let the distance and frustration rise to a breaking point. Schedule today and get your family back!

Family therapy helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. I am trained in several evidence-based family therapies approaches. When conducting family therapy, I am treating the family unit not simply one person in the family. Therefore, I examine the family relationships, behaviors, and patterns and how those factors impact the functioning of the family.

Family counseling is a most valuable opportunity for helping families in crisis as well as families who may be going through a life transition. Families can become socially, emotionally and psychologically dangerous, confusing, and even internally devastating. Families that are experiencing dysfunctional changes including addictions, emotional and mental illness, abandonment, fierce arguments, new family members, departing family members, new family rules, power relationships and family power changes that happen in an unprepared manner can create emotional traumas of significant proportions. Family counseling serves to restructure a families operation and aims to transform family dysfunction to family function.

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.

Family therapy takes a look at the "system" in which your family operates. Perceptions of children and communication styles of parents often create conflict and roadblocks to creating a healthy home environment and healthy relationships. Giving parents and children tools to create good communication can unlock hope and wholeness. Boundaries are very important in families, as well as parental unity.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor

In 76092 - Nearby to Ponder.

Family therapy can be a powerful tool for healing broken or dysfunctional family relationships. I look at each member of the family as one part of a bigger system. In order for healing to occur within the family system, each part will have to come to a place of recognizing its role in both the sickness and the health of the system. Together, we will seek to make honest assessment of the family system, and help the family move from a place of sickness to a place of healthy, dynamic growth.
