Family issues can feel daunting. They can cause much inner stress, grief and even illness. Addressing tension in family relationships is key to living a happy, wholesome life. I see each individual as a sub-unit of family life. I have done great systems work in working with the entire family unit, in creating a space to discuss issues, allow anger, and at the same time, finding a space to develop creative solutions and better ways of working through conflict and pain. Together we create a space to process the strained dynamic and work on understanding, respecting and improving connection with one another, allowing space for harmony, compassion and love to be expressed.

All families operate out of systems that create their norms. For varied reasons, those norms may seem impossible to work through when dealing with simple every day issues. It is through the exploration of each other's roles, beliefs, expectations, and understanding of one another that we can create clear, fair, communication. In this way, no one feels left out and everyone becomes accountable to the other.

A family is a complex system, with a great many dynamics. Add to that how parents bring their past, history, childhood, and emotional baggage into the parenting of their own children. It can feel overwhelming: where do you start. But parenting and running a family can be amazing and healing. You can succeed in raising happy, successful children, while also working through the left over issues of your own childhood. You can be stronger as a result of your family of origin experiences, and create the family life you dream of and will be proud of. Get clear on the goals of parenting – independent and confident children, with life skills and emotional tools. Enjoy your family again.

Often, parents come in with their child or children presenting a particular problem behavior or emotional issue. While it is often important for the child to engage in individual psychotherapy, it may also be helpful to engage the entire family in treatment in order to discover patterns in communication, behavior, and boundaries which may be influencing the particular presenting concerns. Family therapy works to improve overall communication, and build positive, trusting, and balanced relationships.

Each of you has a role being played out in your family - and possibly not the obvious one you imagine. I take a 'structuralist' approach to family therapy - looking at what is taking place between members rather than to individuals. We will explore these events/relationships and work on changing patterns of interaction that on one hand have developed in your family, but on the other are likely continuations of patterns played out before, perhaps for generations. These can change - and it is usually for everyone's benefit.

An interactive family therapy approach is utilized to engage all the family members regardless of age. The family will explore their interactions with each other as well as how each family member reacts in their own way to family stressors. The family will then create a plan in regard to how the family can create change in the the household to enhance the family environment.

Families are comprised in so many different ways. Being sensitive to the different challenges that each family has is important. Telling your child that he/she was adopted is sometimes dreaded. Therapy can help prepare you with the tools to communicate this sensitive knowledge in a safe place. Blended families have their own unique challenges and therapy can help to reduce power struggles and conflict by improving communication in the household. With a specialization in family therapy, each family member's role in the family is examined and the insight is provided in a sensitive manner with the goal of understanding and improving the family dynamics.
