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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

In working with families, we will collaborate on addressing the couple's need to be in charge. Family rules and boundaries are sometimes unclear to children. We will work together to communicate your expectations. When acting out, underachievement, conduct problems, defiant or oppositional behaviors present in the children, the the parents need to be on the same page. Your family will learn, insession, preferred communicatin styles; empathic listening, group problem solving skills, tolerance, respect and acceptance of each other. Family members will learn to interact without anger, resentment, sarcasm or disrespect. Parents need to be authoritative without being authoritarian.

Working with single parent families is an area in which I have a lot of experience. Often time it is helpful to facilitate communication and support to both parties since neither one feels heard or respected. This dynamic can lead to a power struggle and then the relationship get stuck in a "You are going to do what I say"; "You can't make me" dance. Another aspect is dealing with differences between temperament types. A parent and child be mismatched. Increasing awareness of the differences and dealing with them can make all the difference in the world. It is helpful at times to have individual sessions to support disclosure and practicing new skills in an open,supportive place.

A family is a unit composed of several individuals, that form its dynamic, communication style, interaction, needs and desires, and sometimes these ‘clash’ or do not go hand in hand or in great harmony, to say the least! When working with families it is important to know that each person and each family is unique and has its own style, challenges and differences in character and personality. Our primary aim will be to explore, with each of you, as well as together, the concerns and challenges and guide you to create a more harmonious and balanced family relationships.
