Our approach to Family Therapy focuses on the individual strengths of each family member, as well as their unique role within the family system. Our therapists may see families together and individually. Through mutual cooperation and trust, our goal is to mend, heal and enhance any family system. Some families may even wish to utilize our services before issue may arise.

The "Family Crucible" as coined by the late Carl Whitaker, can be the greatest source of strength in our lives or it can be a source of pain. Our families of origin are always part of us for the rest of our lives. Family therapy helps us to discover who we are and who we want to become as a differentiated person apart from my family. It helps us to grow up and take responsibility for our own lives apart from family influence allowing us to make decisions about our lives, our relationships, and our decisions in general. As a Family Therapist I help people distinguish between healthy and unhealthy families and guide them in their quest for the healthy family they so desire.

The family therapy I do is in situations when a child or teen is acting out. A child or teen might be defiant, or aggressive, or failing in school, or in trouble with the law or abusing substances or lying excessively or acting promiscuously, or some combination of these and other negative behaviors. The family therapy I do is preceded by a thorough and state-of-the art evaluation of both the youth and the youth's system. I then set measurable goals with a family and follow it up with behaviorally oriented family therapy. In this approach, there are specific and structured strategies brought to bear and home, and often and school, to enhance a child or teen's odds of being highly successful.
