So much of what we enjoy in life involves family relationships. Sadly, family relationships can also be a source of great pain. Many people feel deep obligations to family members who are irresponsible and self-destructive. Others struggle to know how to relate to family members they simply don't enjoy being around. With my extensive background in family systems theory I'm often able to help persons make fresh decisions about family relationships.

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.

Too many families shy away from getting help because they fear out of control counseling sessions where everyone points fingers and places blame. At Chenal Family Therapy, we work to create a blame-free environment that focuses on finding solutions not faults. We limit our family therapy sessions to only the immediately relevant parties under the belief that others should not be dragged into the conflict that exists solely between two people. We teach skills that help families decrease their long-term need for therapy and become their own problem solvers. When needed, individuals can be referred internally to one of our specialists for coordinated care on related issues such addiction.

In counseling with families, I use the approach known as "Family Systems" theory. Basically, Family Systems theory views the family an an integrated whole, rather than simply separate individuals who live together. So, presenting problems in family therapy are treated with various family dynamics in mind. Family members are helped to gain insight into possible ways each individual may be contributing to conflict and inadequate relationships within the family unit. In family therapy sessions, family members are encouraged to address issues with each other in a safe setting of the counseling office. Communication skills, including appropriate assertiveness, are given strong focus.

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.
