Understanding the family dynamic is crucial to working together for the benefit of the entire family. In working with children we make a special effort to inform and include the parents in the counseling process. Working together with the entire family increases the level of communication and understanding of each family member. We will work with the individual family members as well as a "group counseling" setting with the whole family.

Working with me, families learn better communication skills and new ways of interacting that interrupt negative cycles of behavior that they have fallen into. The goal is for each member of the family to feel heard and valued equally yet acknowledging the multiple unique roles each person plays (mother/wife/lover/employee, son/brother/student).

As individuals we tend to recreate elements of our family system for better or worse wherever we are whether in our marriage, our new family or our work environment. Family therapy can be a powerful means of changing dynamics for the better within a family and improve how family members relate to one another. It also helps provide a frame of reference for why we respond to others as well as life stresses in the way we do.

Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.
