As a relational therapist I typically work individually with you and do not meet with other members of your family. However we will discuss family dynamics and family or origin issues in the course of our work together. As we identify family issues we may at times role-play to give you the practice of representing yourself differently with your family. I see the role of your family of origin to be vital in understanding you as a client and the way in which you relate to others. As people we are molded from our relationships and our family is our first and most foundational relationship in our lives. Naturally we take on patterns of our family subconsciously. My work aims to help make

Families can be complicated, but I find that finding simple keys to good communication provide the foundation to re-build the house. Jus as a river bends, each family member has a different experience as they navigate the same river as their family members depending on the path down it they navigate. Through sharing individual emotions and experiences of similar life events, communication can improve which leads to happier families.

Family Therapy is done from a holistic systems perspective. We examine the challenges you experience as a family, the dynamics of communication, the age of the children involved, and the relationship issues between the members in the family unit. This requires everyone to be open, honest, and reflective, and to be willing to try new ideas. Supportive resources are also provided to enhance the counseling work done in this practice.

I believe in the healing power of family. It is essential to work with parents and caregivers in helping a child/adolescent heal. It is important to strengthen the family, help with communication, and provide tools for healing and better understanding among its members. I feel it is important to give each family member a voice and create respect for one another.

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.

I help hurting families heal. Often tensions are high and emotions can flare, but in the counseling room I work as a referee and guide to the words and emotions that need to be shared. I ask everyone involved to see the counseling room as a safe place and to honor the desire for peace. Some of the families I work with are in the process of a divorce. The session is used to help explain to the children, in language that is age appropriate, that their parents are separating, but it is not their fault and they are still going to be taken care of. This work is important to reduce the trauma of the divorce and create a healthier post-divorce family.

Often there are times when our very family seems to be falling apart. It can feel hopeless and it can be easy to pin the blame on one or two people in a family. In my work with families, I seek to explore each members' unique voice and contribution to the struggles that our occurring. I find that when this is engaged and in an honest and open way, the issues are able to be addressed and worked through for the benefit of all. However, it often requires a therapist who can see from another perspective to help a family move together in a different direction together.

Even the happiest families hit speed bumps along the way. Sometimes tension can build in the home, or you feel less like a family unit. The family system continues to shift and develop as new dynamics and expectations grow. As you age, as your children age, and as the world around you changes, it’s important for the family system to adjust, and for communication patterns to shift. In family therapy with me, we will examine relationship patterns, ones that have transcended through generations and ones that are created between current family members. We will create new ways of relating and communicating to improve the overall functioning of the family as a whole system. Together, as a family, you have the capacity to create new and healthy patterns that...(view profile to read more)

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.

When one person in a family makes a change or has a problem, there is a ripple effect--sometimes that's for the better and sometimes 'not so much'! I pay attention to the hierarchies and help parents take on the roles that work best when raising children. This is particularly important in blended family situations. Sometimes its important to have a counseling session with all the family members and other times with just the parents.

Virginia Satir, an early pioneer of family therapy, said, “Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.” My approach in working with families honors her idea that everyone in the family has an incredible worth and something to contribute. I strive in family therapy to increase the connectedness and trust between partners, siblings and parents and their children so that the family becomes a place all members thrive.
