Most therapists these days realize that we are not isolated individuals and neither are our problems. We live in relationships and families. Our identities and roles in life are, to a large extent, formed by the families we grow up in and even by the culture in which we live. Some of these roles, for example, might be the black sheep, or the scapegoat, or the problem child, or the loser. These roles are in contrast to the star, or the favorite child, or the successful one. Family therapy looks to the larger picture and notes the important influences in causing emotional suffering.

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.

Where moms self-abnegate and children are wrong,family counselling helps reduce tension. Casting or assuaging wrongful blame rerely helps; it's considered much more beneficial to access restitution via admission of guilt by the offender. It takes a big person. to admit he was wrong!!!! Confession, affidavit, apology, rescinsion, abdication, exhonneration, invalidation, and denial often work. Where denial can be seen as a cop-out - particularly when there is a loss of life, denial o culpability where children cast blamesgo the mother an be iewed as good.

Our key relationships define us in direct and indirect ways. The need to be loved, accepted, known, seen, heard, protected, cared for, attached is hard wired into each and every human being. For most, the experience of family is core to this need being met. Working with an entire family unit is a privilege. Each family member has the opportunity to have a voice and share his/her perspective. Each can ask for change. Long standing roles can be shed. New approaches to communication and understanding attempted and, when successful, adopted. Families are where we are empowered for living. My client family members enjoy empowering others and being empowered by those they love.

As a psychologist who focuses on marriage and relationship counseling, and works with families, I find special interest in the Holiday Season! It offend provides useful opportunities for my clients to observe the dynamics in their own families of origin. Doesn't it often feel too easy to slip back into the old interaction patterns? It's like families have a certain "gravitational pull," and as a family therapist I believe we can learn a lot about ourselves as individuals, as well as improve family life, by better understanding the families from which we came and the family life we now are creating with our spouses and children.
