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.

Your family is the center of your world. When there is sadness or conflict within your family it is difficult to feel good about life. I want to help your family heal and grow. As a family therapist I help individuals and couples overcome life's challenges including divorce or affairs. Marriage counseling can help you learn to communicate more effectively and to feel closer and more connected to your spouse. Many families have challenges. With commitment and patience we can work to overcome the challenges in your family. We can restore the passion and affection that you once shared. I know this is not easy. But your family is worth the effort. Love grows here.

My approach to family therapy begins with using my training to determine who, in addition to the primary client, needs treatment. Sessions may include various family configurations (both parents, one parent and child, members of extended family, or a single individual) and treatment includes strategic family therapy to improve communication and resolve underlying conflict.

The reason why I love doing family therapy is because unlike working with just one member of a family group, I get to see the generational themes that have caused the family system to become compromised. Besides my Ph.D. I also have a masters in marriage, family and child counseling. This has always been a bonus for my clients because I am able to pull from many different modalities as I help your family put itself back together again. If a family is fragmented..some of the members are suffering and carrying the burden for the rest of the family. Its my job to isolate the primary "disconnects" and get down to business as we uncover what has led the family into a dark place.

In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I have served as the emotional and verbal connection between family members. Modeling healthy dialogue and building emotional trust and intimacy, I facilitate family exercises. Having each member describe how their brain works, neurotypical or neuroatypical, and their emotional temperament, allows family members to know each other from the inside out. Each person describes what they need from the other to feel more understood, approved of, and loved. Pairing family members up to become partners in change to work collaboratively and collectively in building a healthy family culture for ongoing comfort and unity, has been a primary focus of my practice.

Family therapy is full of richness. All families are different yet very much the same. There are many different dynamics at work with families. There are parent and sibling sub-systems, coalitions and alignments within families. Families can be very complex units yet very enriching to their members. I enjoy working with families, especially the challenges of the developmental life stages, birth, toddlers, young adolescents, young adults, mid-life, old age. Each offers their unique challenges. The benefits come with setting clear goals, objectives, rules, consequences to breaking the rules and developing open and respectful lines of communication.

It's amazing how much work can be done in family therapy. I have met with many families who felt hopeless that they could change the dynamics. Every family I have worked with definitely learned better ways to communicate and understand each other better. When I work with families I am always on the side of the best for the family. You will be safe with me and can be confident that your family will be better off after treatment.

My approach explores the family dynamics that keep people from living authentic lives. Unresolved issues from the past may cause the heart to shut down. If left unattended, this disruption in the flow of love is carried across generations, ripples into the shadows of the family landscape, often emerging as illness, emotional difficulties, and broken relationships. All family members are invited to attend and together we work through the issues in a safe caring environment.

Families that work well together as a unit provide healthy boundaries and structure. As a structural therapist, I will help family members and those who are in close relationship with them, to foster change by differentiation of self thereby, reducing emotional entanglements and negative problematic behaviors. Families will learn how to rely on their strengths to reduce internal stress and conflict. They will also learn how to improve their internal family systems and ways interacting between family members. To further promote behavioral changes, I will help the family members to increase their awareness of self and promote family cohesion.
