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.

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.

Not all problems lie within an individual. Not all problems are due to mental illness. Often enough, problems have to do with the pressures, expectations and behaviors of members of the past and present family (both immediate family and extended family). Family therapy helps family members reconsider and change dysfunctional patterns of interaction and establish more appropriate boundaries where needed.

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.
