In working with family issues, I first determine the cause of the issue. We would then discuss and agree to treatment options. When issues are with adolescents, sometimes I end up being a sounding board when they feel they can't talk to their parents. If there is communication issues between family members, I will work with them on building skills to better understand each others needs. The goal Is generally to have everyone working together as a team. When there is conflict in a marriage or pending separation or divorce, I will work with family members to adjust to the changes taking place and assist them in the reorganization process.

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.
