Families are designed to be a safe haven for all of its members. But sometimes, despite our best intentions and efforts, things don't work out that way, and our families are embroiled in conflict. Some of the circumstances which challenge families are divorce, blended families, transition to new ages and stages, adoption, and other forms of gaining and losing members. Family therapy is a way to bring members together in a safe and controlled environment, to give each member a chance to be heard and understood, often using creative tools. We will help each member take responsibility for his or her own feelings, respect the feelings of the others, and interact in a more effective way.

Kimberly works with children/adolescents in the context of their family. Family is a system in which each member has a role to play and rules to respect. Members of the system are expected to respond to each other in a certain way according to their role, which is determined by relationship agreements. Within the boundaries of the system, patterns develop as certain family member's behavior is caused by and causes other family member's behaviors in predictable ways. Maintaining the same pattern of behaviors within a system may lead to balance in the family system, but also to dysfunction. Kimberly helps her patients improve the relationships within the family which are causing sickness.
