Families! So maddening! So crazy! So beautiful! Here are 6 basic principles I apply to working with families: #1: Find the strongest member of the family, the one who's most able to change & give that person encouragement & tools for altering harmful family patterns. #2: Break apart triangles--where 2 people talk about or align against a third person #3: Encourage "duo's" in the family-- the building of one-on-one relationships of honesty & affection. #4: Discover & enhance the strengths of individuals & the family as a whole. #5: Help the family find things to laugh about & enjoy together. Humor can break though the ugliest feelings or barriers. #6: And over it all, love and more love.

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.
