Families can be the source of tremendous joy and also the source of tremendous pain. When things are feeling out of control at home or in your extended family, members often become depressed and angry. Emotionally Focused Family Therapy can help transform negative interaction patterns and restore connections. Your family can be a safe place, a place where each member is valued, loved and appreciated for their unique qualities. If you are a family with a Special Needs child, you have specific challenges that can be helped by an experienced therapist. You do not need to navigate this difficult road alone!

It has been said that " people do what they know how to do, and when it doesn't work, they do more of it." If your family is "stuck" in repetitive negative and unhealthy patterns, I will work with you to identify these patterns and help you move forward as a family toward positive and more loving ways of living with each other. Family systems and developmental theories about life-cycle stages guide my work with families. These approaches are also appropriate for families making post-divorce adjustments and especially for launching adolescents.

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.

Families come to me in a state of chaos and upon successfult treatment, leave with structure, stability, and love. I will teach you how to use a simple method of communication to put a quick end to "too long" arguments... and that's just the first session. Parents can regain control over their disruptive children once they learn my techniques of "seeing" and "guiding." Put an end to being too critical of or spoiling your kids.

I have learned that rarely is a problem located in 1 person alone. Systems such as families or marriages, support and maintain problem dynamics. It can be helpful to discern how various members in a family deliberately or unconsciously contribute to maintenance of problems. Rather than focus on changing 1 person, therapy can focus on disrupting a problem dynamic and learning new ways to respond to old provocations.

Family Therapy can offer simple solutions to complex problems that undermine the strength of the family. With the insight and support of a trained therapist you can see self defeating behavior and learn ways to improve your life and the life of family members. Rebuilding the connective tissues of love, intimacy and communication contribute to being happy now rather than being stuck in patterns of resentments, sadness and fears that make happy relationships difficult. Learning to trust yourself and other family members strengthens the bonds that make relationships both meaningful and rewarding. Sometimes going back to the basics of kindness and respect create the profound changes we want.

Family therapy is often the treatment of choice for families who are confronted with specific crisis situations, (such as death, divorce, illness, or child/adolescent issues). When the family is the client, I assess the way members interact and work to improve communication and problem-solving skills, as well as resolve the current life stressors. Each family member plays a role in the way the family interacts and is seen as a vital participant in both the healthy and dysfunctional styles of interaction. Therefore, in family counseling the goal is to assist each member to work together more effectively to create a more functional family unit.

Each stage of a family's life cycle presents new and unique challenges. Interaction patterns that were functional in earlier stages may no longer be effective. Coping with challenges and negotiating new boundaries and ways of relating can be difficult and problems can appear overwhelming. I assist families in developing manageable solutions, maintaining connections, and re-establishing an environment of mutual love and support. Don’t live with the pain and fear of family conflict any longer. Contact me so we can get your family the support you need.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe in Systems Theory - which regards family relationships as an important factor in psychological health. I believe that regardless of the origin of the problem, clients benefit when the whole family participates in therapy. This school of thought adheres to the idea that no individual in the family is the "problem" - although he/she can often be viewed as the scapegoat in the family. "Fixing" an individual without addressing the dynamics and rules of the wider family system is not helpful for the long term well-being of the individual or the familial relationships.

Family therapy is a wonderful modality to assist families in improving communication, interaction, respect, support or addressing a concern that is impacting the family unit. Family therapy can increase understanding and assist family members in functioning at their optimal level and achieving their individual and family goals. Family therapy can help members and families attain healing needed to process difficult situations and trauma by improving communication, structure and boundaries.

Raising our children is one of the most important things that we will ever do in life. How they turn out, how life goes for them, whether they experience joy and happiness because of their inner strength and resources, or struggle with life because of inadequate coping skills is largely in our hands. Many adults have had hundreds, if not thousands of hours of training for their profession, yet when we become parents there is virtually no training available for what most people agree is one of the most important jobs on the planet: being a parent.

Raised in a family of seven siblings, I understand the challenges of families and the unique dynamics involved. If your family is experiencing trauma, loss from a recent death, or just has a hard time getting along, family counseling is the answer. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a proven method of improving family relationships and breaking out of the negative cycles of pain and anger.

The family is the backbone of our society. With this in mind, a healthy functioning family is of great importance. There are many causes to problems and issues that a family faces. Once these problems are identified, then the family and therapist can go to work to resolve the issue and strengthen the family. A family systems approach is an effective way that I have helped families resolve their issues. In looking at the roles or "dance" that each person plays in the family that contributes to the problem, the problem issue can then be focused on and resolved by identifying what each person can do differently to experience the desired outcome of the family.

Sometimes getting along at home can be difficult. Perhaps there is someone in your family making bad choices and it is hurting your heart. Or maybe it is the day-to-day miscommunications and conflict that causes so much stress. On one hand, family squabbles are a normal part of living together. On the other hand, they can be very difficult and painful. Please don't wait one more day. Family therapy or family counseling can help. And you can even if you come in by yourself if your family won't come in with you. We'd like to see if we can help you make it better.
