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. Contact us for an innovative neuroscience solution to family dysfunction. Kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

While it can be interesting to explore all the roots of family problems, it can also be painful. More important, it almost never helps families to function better. Instead of dredging up the past (which wastes lots of time and money and cannot be changed), I help families to build solutions that are effective and permanent -- even if they don't fully understand how the problems developed.

As one who understands that our realities are suspended in evolving situations such as relationships known as the family system, the reverberations of what takes place here and now—between us—may be infinite (generation to generation). I am a co-collaborator with family members in a process of creating and transforming meaning from problem talk to exploring alternative possibilities. I work with individuals, families, and couples to better enhance family issues. I have several years of experience including multiple ways to approach problems.

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.

Family therapy is most beneficial when the problems you are facing are relational. Do you constantly argue with your teenage son? Do you feel like your in-laws do not respect your boundaries? Are family alliances splitting your family? Are you burdened by caring for an elderly parent? Does every discussion end with a fight? In family therapy we can clarify the rules and the roles in the family, help you put and maintain healthy boundaries, redivide tasks and improve communication among family members. At the end of therapy, family members will walk away feeling heard and supported, knowing that the family is their safe haven, a place where they can be themselves and feel accepted and loved.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Many times families and couples need counseling to assist with learning to communicate, manage their anger and live successfully together as a family unit. As spouses and parents, we all bring our life experiences into our family dynamics which sometimes create conflict and frustration. Family therapy can provide fresh insight and awareness to how we are interacting and new skills to enhance our relationships.

Families can experience any stressful events that take a toll on the family unit, such as financial issues, divorce/remarriage, or the death of a loved one. In addition, other mental health concerns can impact the family as a whole, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, communication issues/conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Family Therapy aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals.

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.

Everyone in the family deserves to be heard, no matter the age or circumstance.When they don't feel anyone is listening, acting out, frustration, arguing, fighting, and misunderstandings occur. I received my Masters' degree in Family Therapy and have been trained for over 15 years by some of the top innovators in the field. My training was concentrated on learning to help shift the family from being stuck to possibility, ease, and fulfillment. Family counseling doesn't have to be a painful airing of all the problems that have occurred. It can be fun and playful.

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.
