There are a number of unique struggles that are experienced in families. Handling difficult parenting issues can involve couples learning to work together in finding effective and supportive methods to address their children's behavior. It is very difficult for a parent to provide everything a child needs especially in school and peer situations that have many differences in pressures and communication devices that are quite new. Helping parents learn about and overcome their own deficits can also help the relationships with their spouse and children flourish and can help parents to support their children with many concerns that might have brought them into therapy in the first place.

I help mothers and fathers to parent children to be physically and emotionally healthy, do well academically, have good social skills and self-esteem, be well behaved, and grow up to have healthy relationships. The focus in counselling is on the parent-child relationship. Issues that make parenting challenging are also addressed such as a parent’s own unmet emotional needs, stress, fatigue, feelings of guilt, a difficult birth experience, mental health issues, relationship difficulties, conflicts with extended family, or history of abuse. Whether your child is a newborn or a teenager, I offer help that is practical and respectful of the needs of the parent and child.

I believe strongly that human beings are naturally designed to form close connections with others. Emotional difficulties can often be linked back to challenging relationships with those closest to us. I help to facilitate discussions that support individuals to appropriately deal with the issues that are negatively impacting the family's functioning. By examining how the family as a whole interacts and understanding those problematic communication patterns, change can be fostered. Through an open and supportive counselling environment, family members develop compassion and connectedness that allows for the healing of past pain.

Families are the foundations from which individuals launch their lives, and the safe haven in which we live our lives. Sometimes, families get a bit off-track or forget the gentle arts of forgiveness and positive regard for each other. The ways in which we communicate both our needs and our caring impact our experience of family. I can help you improve communication, learn effective and respectful ways to resolve conflict, and strengthen connections inside your family.

The success or failure of the attachment bond formed with our primary caregivers affects us as adults. People who grow up believing their needs will be met are resilient and able to remain focused, relaxed, and creative in challenging situations. People who grow up without such expectations will fear conflict, and will not trust themselves in conflict situations. Relational therapy and attachment theory informs my work in family therapy. I believe that a healthy family life involves an open and reciprocal sharing of affection, feelings, and love. By bringing genuine warmth, caring and compassion to the therapeutic relationship, I model a core belief of mine that caring and acceptance are key ele....

Many studies, including the famous 75 year Harvard study (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/11/how-this-harvard-psycholo_n_3727229.html) have found that the quality of our relationships are by far the most important factor in people's happiness and fulfillment in life. Many families have dysfunctional relationships; It's because they don't know how to talk with each other. I teach communication and problem-solving skills so that families can develop an open line of communication and resolve long standing issues and resentments. At the end of lives, it's the quality of relationships that matter most. No one on their deathbed ever says, "I wish I'd spent more time at the office."

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I work from a systems and attachment approach. Family therapy focuses on understanding how the dynamics of the structural family system work. I work with parents to ensure and/or establish healthy couples attachment, and united parenting strategies. Family sessions will help the individuals and the family as a whole understand each other on a deeper level, and learn how to shift, soothe, and repair each other when stress arises. As a family, we feel safe, secure, and attuned with each other when we "get one another". Feeling understood, seen, and heard is imperative in a healthy family system.

Prusik works with families whose children are experiencing emotional/behavioural problems, enabling families to develop methods of managing these problems. By teaching children and parents simple "grounding" (emotional regulation skills) & by practicing these skills in the home and out in the community, children are able to create healthy neuro-pathways (pathways in the brain). Prusik exposes children to various activities & helps them overcome emotional dysregulation (i.e. explosive anger, anxiety etc.) utilizing grounding skills. Prusik utilizes family/parent participation as part of the therapeutic approach. For more information.www.prusikyouthservices.com.

Family counseling is a profound experience in which predictable behavior patterns are disrupted, each person is given a voice, and balance of power is realigned. All family members are brought into goal making processes and members hold each other accountable to the desired changes. The goal is to create an environment in which differences can be acknowledged and integrated most effectively.
