While I don't work with children under the age of eighteen years of age,I see families with young adult children,or families with older parents who are struggling with difficulties. There may be grudges, betrayals, misunderstandings among family members. There may be a history of abuse or dysfunction. I work to help the generations bridge the gaps between them, to communicate more effectively, and to understand their different perspectives. There may be anger, disappointment, even a sense of betrayal but I work to help families really listen to each other, and to express their feelings without attacking or blaming. My goal is to help families reach some understanding and peace among all.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.
