My training in systems theory, or how to look at what is happening between people, makes for more effective therapy. Instead of looking for what's wrong with a member of the family it involves looking at all of the relationships and dynamics in the family in order to improve things as a whole. When the problems involve children and teens I believe parents have the most power to change things. Determining what changes are important and most effective in repairing things in a family is what family therapy is all about.

Family therapy is understood through relationships as such the family is considered the client. I work with clients using an integrative approach of MRI strategic therapy, Bowenian family systems, and Solution Focused therapy. Families processed problems that maintain the presenting issues, then gained understanding of how the issues may be augmented within multi-generations. Through processing, emotional patterns are explored as family members achieve increasing self-differentiation, and empowered to use cognitive abilities over emotions. They are able to explore exceptions, while building on their strengths and resources in resolving initial and future problems.

Clients will be able to better understand the dynamics of their family and how their family system works, what sustains it, what makes it strong and what makes it weak. Counseling will help the clients gain the love, respect, and honor that draws them together as a family, so they can find the joy and fulfillment of being a family. Healing and restoring relationships is an outcome of the counseling process of Family Therapy, as each individual agrees to work on strengthening and protecting themselves and each other.

One of the most most beautiful parts of Family Therapy is when powerful change happens when you least expect it. I will work with you to help the structure of your family run more smoothly, identify stuck patterns and move towards more healthy communication and behaviors. All of these changes will be measurable and identifying within the first few sessions and my goal is to have you and your family walk out noticing these changes as soon as possible!

Families engage in unhealthy and ineffective ways of relating that can continue for years leaving all parties feeling burdened and strung out. Gaps and distances are created to manage difficult emotions and you may need a guide to help you rebuild a broken relationship. I help families address dysfunctional patterns that interfere with the closeness they would like to obtain. I help members identify patterns used to protect and distance themselves. I assist family members in engaging in a manner that recognizes the emotional needs of the family, and foster empathy for one another's position in family conflicts.

Although I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with a Doctorate in Marriage & Family Therapy, I do not work with children under 18. I do, however, work with families with adult children. Often, parents believe their lives are being disrupted when adult children move home or when they fail to achieve (whether or not they live together). Also, many adult children believe that their parents are overreaching, etc. My approach to every situation is systemic. I help each member of the family system to adopt new behaviors that are neither childlike nor parent-like. In this way, the family system and each member in it can learn to live in harmony, whether or not they live together.

Families consist of the most important relationships in our lives. They can also be the most difficult. Learning how to communicate as children are growing up allows the kids to form healthier relationships as they grow up. We learned how to do "family" from our families...who did what they learned. Counseling helps to becomes more aware of the tools for healthy and connecting relationships.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I strongly believe that there is no one way to handle a problem. I work with my clients to highlight what works and use that knowledge to help improve what seems to not be working. I genuinely enjoy seeing the entire family in session since it provides rich information on how a family interacts and provides insight on the resources they have to tackle whatever problems come their way.

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.

I approach family therapy from a systems perspective. That is, all members of the family or "system" impact one another. Because of this, all members of the system will need to make changes and adjustments in their own patterns for relating to one another. Family therapy can significantly effect change in your family system and prevent members of the system from falling back into their unhealthy patterns. We cannot heal in the same environment in which we became sick!

When families learn to identify and modify maladaptive patterns of relating as they are guided into challenging inflexible roles assigned or adopted by its members, the system that the family is begins to move towards a healthier and more functional unit. Moreover, becuase, often times the person identified as the problem, is nothing but the expression of the symptoms of the family which may include ineffective distribution of power and responsibility, addressing structural issues can also contribute to transform families and turn them into safer and and more balanced.

The family can be one of the most important parts of a person's life and, quite often, significantly shapes a person's worldview. The family can impact a person in both negative and positive ways, and those impacts can have lasting effects on a person's sense of well-being. When you are a member of a family, it can feel like you are part of a big hub. Imagine what it feels like when the hub is not functioning well. Family therapy is necessary to help the family be in tune with itself. When the family is in tune with itself, its members can focus their energies on living better, looking forward to spending time together rather than avoiding each other.

Dr. Weatherford may suggest family therapy to help the identified patient resolve his/her issues. The family unit is like a well balanced mobile. If one object on the mobile changes (or gets better) other members of the family may need to make changes or adjustments. The positive change in the family member may disrupt the balance of the family unit. Short courses of family therapy can well restore the homeostasis of the family unit and allow it to be more receptive to the changes in the identified patient.

Family systems have a huge impact on our life. There has always been the argument between nature and nurture as to the cause of any emotional issues we face. The reality is there is some of both involved. It is usually the client who comes in for the counseling but a lot of the solution is found in the family system. Many influences and issues are passed through generations of a family. Therefore there are times when it is profitable to work with the entire family in counseling. Although we are not committed to solely a family systems approach to counseling we do recognize the need to address family issues that are often personified in the member with the perceived problem.

Society trains us to think very individualistically, but many of our behaviors, thoughts, actions are reactions to the complex interactions of our lives, families, relationships. Family therapy is a way of viewing problems and solutions by evaluating the bigger picture of how all the parts involved create a symptom. Family therapy techniques and interventions are designed to alter the physics of relationships to bring about solutions changing our mental or behavioral thought process and resulting in desired outcomes. Family therapy is another model of therapy with varying techniques. Contrary to popular belief, family therapy does not need to be done with whole family participation.

Most of the families I work with come to see me as a result of relationship distress and struggles within the family, or because of parenting issues and children or teenagers who are "acting out" (usually oppositional and defiant). I also specialize in helping families with young adult children (early 20's and older) who are still dependent on them and are often known as "failure to launch" young adults. I use a "systems" approach to help families with support, guideance and practical advice and tools.

My approach to family therapy is to allow space for family members to voice their thoughts and opinions to each other in a safe space. Prior to coming together, I work with family members individually to help them to learn how to express themselves effectively and utilize validation as a uniting force within the family. Even in families where it seems impossible to find something to validate, it is important to come back to an understanding and validation of the family member's emotional experience. I teach each of my clients how to use "I" statements to express themselves and take ownership of their own emotional responses. It is during these times that people truly feel seen and heard.

Families who are out of balance or in crisis benefit from having a safe place to speak their truths and really be heard by one another. We will uncover dynamics and "family myths" as we look at the roles each family member plays in the family. I use thereputic techniques such as family sculpting and other experiential techniques to synthesize these dynamics so the family can be guided to make shifts in the dynamics. Families will learn how to set healthy boundaries and validate one another.
