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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Family life is a multi-layered experience for each person. No two family members experience family life, or the relationships within the family, in exactly the same way. For this reason, family therapy is a very active, dynamic process. Although several family members may see me initially to explain what they think is problematic, I like to see the entire family together as soon as possible. My work with families focuses on helping each person explain their needs and hear how others in the family feel hurt and misunderstood. Reducing the stress and conflict within the family is the purpose of learning in sessions how to communicate clearly.

People entering into family therapy can often benefit from finding new ways to communicate or exist in the same space as each other. It's a challenge that is made easier with creative arts therapy, which brings in alternative ways to express, communicate, and reflect. At Water & Stone the therapist working with the family will help focus on the specific issue that brings everyone into a session while also exploring deeper connections, patterns, and relationships that might need attention and healing as well. Since there are multiple therapists available it is also possible for individuals to see their own therapist within the same practice when that is of interest.

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.

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.
