Where moms self-abnegate and children are wrong,family counselling helps reduce tension. Casting or assuaging wrongful blame rerely helps; it's considered much more beneficial to access restitution via admission of guilt by the offender. It takes a big person. to admit he was wrong!!!! Confession, affidavit, apology, rescinsion, abdication, exhonneration, invalidation, and denial often work. Where denial can be seen as a cop-out - particularly when there is a loss of life, denial o culpability where children cast blamesgo the mother an be iewed as good.

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.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I work with many families in all stages of the life cycle, facing numerous and varied challenges. This is a complex area of therapy for which I have a real passion. Families today face particularly difficult situations and can often feel overcome their resources for dealing it all. Reaching out for help to a qualified therapist is wise and most often quite helpful.
