Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I routinely work with families in my practice. There are any number of reasons that families seek counseling. Quite frequently, the reasons revolve around children and parenting. Sometimes there are issues between child or adult siblings. Unresolved conflicts from childhood. Arguments ensue over the family business. Caring for a special needs child, or an aging parent. At other times, family members have experienced a loss in the family or there are struggles with blending families in second marriages. These struggles also bring with them opportunities to create openings that may not have existed before. Counseling can be very useful in healing old wounds and settling disputes.

Families provide a unique complexity of dynamics and relationships. Different personalities, families of origin and opinions/perspectives often lead to conflict among two or more members within the family. While there may be one "identified client", it is important to work together as a system to make changes and grow. I work with families on communication skills, conflict resolution and becoming more aware of how their behaviors effect others around them.

Why can't we just all get along? Well, sometimes we do our best based on what we know and there are things in the way that cause conflict, create negative relational patterns, or even events that change the dynamics of how we relate. It can be a simple communication solution, learning coping skills, or there may be emotional or relational patterns that need shifted. I can provide very practical tools for all of that as well as an emotion-focused and attachment-based approach for developing secure and strong family bonds.
