Yes, family therapy can be fun. Family therapy can include a time for talking and exploring, it can include time for group projects in order to see how you work (or don't work) as a unit, and sometimes it includes fun activities such as art or games. Family therapy can include parents, children, siblings, and in-laws (and whoever else you feel may be important to the problems). Often if there is a problem with a child, the problem is bigger than the child. I work with birth families, blended families and adoptive families.

Family systems was the theory and leading force behind my clinical training. Using family systems theory my focus and theory is derived from Murray Bowen. We will create a family genogram where I will gain pertinent information to how your family operates. How were arguments resolved? How do family members communicate? We will explore what your family role is. What is your sibling position? How do you currently communicate? Do you communicate? These are some of the ways I begin to explore my work with families.

Sometimes the issues that are causing problems in the home involved the entire family dynamic. In these cases, it's helpful for all or most of the family members to attend therapy sessions so that I can get a feel for how the family unit operates as a whole. Particularly when the primary problems center on parenting issues, having the entire family in one place to talk about feelings, behaviors, and expectations can be very effective in terms of reducing stress and increasing harmony in the home.

Every family experiences some type of challenge in their relationship together. Let’s face it, no matter how educated or understanding we are, sometimes there is just too much going on and too many personalities involved to see things clearly and to resolve the problem on our own. My personal background includes a long-term marriage and raising four children. This experience enhances my understanding of the types of situations and feelings your family may be experiencing. In a supportive and non-judgmental environment, I will collaborate with you and your family as we explore the underlying thoughts, feelings, and relational dynamics which are interfering with healthy functioning.

Family therapy is helpful in understanding your family unit. Understanding each member of the family as having roll, responsibility and expectation is the beginning of the process of understanding what works and does not work within your family unit. Working with the family from this starting point, will hopefully open the door to improved communication among each family member.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I have found in my many years of experience that many emotional issues and dysfunctional patterns occur in the context of the family system. In our family therapy sessions, we understand the presenting issues through the lens of the family. What are the relationships and connections that provide the foundation for a particular behavior? What is the secondary benefit of a particular behavior? Many behavior patterns and issues can be improved by working through the family.

Families are complicated machines. There are many parts, all of which must work in unison and balance with one another. When this balance is disrupted because one or more family members are having an issue or a hard time, the entire machine (family) stops functioning optimally. Like any machine would, your family may need a "tune up" at that time. You must relearn how to function at your best.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

When one person in the family is plagued by a problem, it disrupts the whole system. Feeling disruptions in the family is difficult and may be the reason family therapy is the right choice for you. I believe that by providing family therapy, the family can learn to live more cohesively and talk to one another, not at each other. A good family therapist is one to help put the pieces back together after things have fallen apart. I listen to family members individually and as a whole to hear what the problem is from their perspective and treat it accordingly. Getting family therapy may be the best decision of your lives.
