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.

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

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.

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.

Clients benefit immediately from family therapy with me. This is because I am educated in family systems and how this works. Many clients are not aware that any behavior/attitude in one family member actually effects the entire family. All family members are interconnected, and this insight is very eye opening for people. Clients learn the extent of the effect their choices have on one another, and how choosing positive behaviors benefits the whole. Family members need to be aware that when one child's behavior improves, for instance, anothers' may become worse. This is to be expected. Knowing this can validate/support families in the healing process.

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.

In family therapy I create a supportive environment where each family member feels comfortable expressing their views and communicating clearly what they need. As a family systems therapist, I also help family members to recognize that what they may identify as “the problem” is often a symptom of a pattern of behavior that has been set overtime. The benefits for your family will include eliminating accusations, blame and identifying effective solutions to communicate effectively. As a Certified Family Mediator I can also conduct court approved Family Mediation.

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.

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.
