Which is more important: An individual's needs or the needs of the family? Answer: both A healthy, cohesive family can solve, support and resolve issues which create conflict, distress, reconnect and strengthen the family. All family members are asked to attend family counseling. From time-to-time, I may ask to meet with individual members if it can benefit the family as a whole. Aesop wrote in his fables, "together we stand, divided we fall..." Together the family can be a cohesive unit where all members feel safe, respected, supported and loved.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

Family therapy is unique in comparison to individual therapy, as the focus is placed on the dynamics within the family and not on one individualized person. My family therapy approach is to understand the goals of each individual, as well a the family unit as a whole. The focus is traditionally placed on communication styles within the family, different alliances formed within the family and how the family is functioning together.

I always include parent(s) in all sessions so they can learn how to bring out the best in their children. I reach, teach, educate and motivate children to value and respect their parents. When children show gratitude not attitude it is much easier for parents to praise and show love rather than yelling, punishing, and restricting their children. The resulting harmonious relations improve the atmosphere of the entire household and the benefits extend to siblings.
