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.

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.

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.

In my practice, I often deal addiction as a "family disease." Many experts view addiction and trauma as generational issues that can best be addressed with the family as a whole. Everyone in the immediate family of the addict/alcoholic plays a roll in this family system. Maladaptive coping, denial, enabling, abandonment, and codependency are just some of the most salient components of addiction as a family disease, that I attempt to address.

Over the last 50 years, the family structure has changed. People are waiting longer to marry and to have children. In 2000, US Census reported that 50% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce. About 26% of individuals find themselves in some sort of step role - stepparent, stepsibling or stepchild resulting in the blended family. Family therapy becomes the safe space where each person can communicate their perceptions and their needs. As the solution focused therapist, we become the vessel through which positive communication can be reached. Other goals in therapy are promotion of positive communication, friendship and healthy conflict resolution skills

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period of time, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members (“Family Therapy”, 2014). The asumption in this type of therapy is that problems cannot be successfully addressed or solved without understanding the dynamics of the group. The way the family operates influences how the client’s problems formed and how they are encouraged or enabled by the other members of the family.

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.
