Many families face challenges at one time or another. When functioning well, families can work through these issues together and come out stronge. At times, however, families experience challenges that are difficult to resolve by themselves. For example: conflicts between parents and adolescent children, coping with illness of a family memeber, father/mother relationship with their children, or helping elderly parents. As a clinician I work jointly with members of families and extended families to help your family develop the tools to overcome these challenges together, to strengthen your relationships with one another, and to create a supportive environment for all.

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.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

Your family is the center of your world. When there is sadness or conflict within your family it is difficult to feel good about life. I want to help your family heal and grow. As a family therapist I help individuals and couples overcome life's challenges including divorce or affairs. Marriage counseling can help you learn to communicate more effectively and to feel closer and more connected to your spouse. Many families have challenges. With commitment and patience we can work to overcome the challenges in your family. We can restore the passion and affection that you once shared. I know this is not easy. But your family is worth the effort. Love grows here.

Family therapy is often times a necessary extention to individual therapy. Families are supposed to work as a system. Sometimes the system breaks down and one member may be viewed as the broken piece. Until the system comes together to work through what is really happening the problem often persists. In therapy together we can look at your system as a whole. Let's open lines of communication between family members, improve your relationships and begin enjoying your lives together again.

We come from a systems approach when working with families. We teach family members how to communicate more effectively with one another. There is an emphasis on personal responsibility and each family member looking at how their behavior is contributing to the problems. Building empathy between family members is also a main focus for us when working with families. We strive for families to leave sessions feeling more connected and understood by each other with the tools to be more successful in their communications. We do family therapy both in the office and in homes.

We're shaped by our relationships with our family members for life. Healthy families share certain core traits. In families that thrive, people share a willingness to change and to own their part in creating conflict, yet feel safe enough to express differences in feelings and beliefs. Whether a family is struggling with chronic conflict or emotional distance, the process of family therapy is a powerful vehicle for change. I help families increase awareness of current patterns and develop new ways of relating and interacting. While the process of family therapy is different for each family, the goals remain the same: to improve communication, increase trust, and strengthen family bonds.

My interest in family counseling came from studying the dynamics which make up a family, sometimes for many generations. Patterns exist as a result of shared beliefs (or rules like in my family of origin). Each family member has their own way of understanding what takes place and by using conjoint family therapy, everyone has a voice from the oldest to the youngest. As a therapist, I provide an environment for exploration, curiosity & opportunity to create better choices and which patterns the family as a whole find beneficial.

Family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family. Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships. In family counseling we will aim to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve problems and assess family patterns that may be hindering the dynamic of the family. As the family works to uncover the source of the problem through therapy they can learn ways to support each other and proactively work on the problem together.
