If you are struggling in a close relationship with conflict, distance and/or withdrawal, or feel that there is no longer an emotional connection with your partner or other family members, it can be helpful to work with a therapist. It is not just as easy as “how you communicate.” Therapy can help you take an objective look at emotional, thinking and behavioral patterns that perhaps no longer are effective and test new methods of interaction to improve your relationships. This can be applied in your relationships with your spouse, your children, parents and friends, neighbors and work colleagues.

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.

There are many different approaches to family therapy. As a clinician, I look at the family relationships within, behaviors, and patterns as they are shown within the therapy session. I help clients to see how intergenerational patterns can also play a role in their current dynamic and offer a non judgmental and nurturing environment for family members to work through their conflict and towards a more healthy relationship.

When a member of a family becomes ill or disabled, the entire family will be affected. Confusion, fear, anxiety and even anger can occur - even after the person recovers - such as with a cancer survivor. With my Registered Nursing and Counseling background I can help families understand some of the changes that are taking place due to the illness. Talking about what each member is experiencing can help all understand each other and lead to finding ways to handle the uncertainty. When you have a plan for coping with the illness or effects of the illness, tensions can decrease, and the family can find a "new normal" - a new way of being together. Different, but still good - still family

I work with families whose interactions and communications need improvement or are outright dysfunctional. For example, in a family with an out of control child, it is easy to blame the family stress entirely on the child. However, the way parents or siblings react or respond to the troubled child often compounds the stress in the household. I have worked with parents and children, as well as grandparents and children, as well as grandparents and grandchildren.

Given the importance of the understanding and addressing the larger social environment, I also offer family counseling. Although some clients choose to enter family therapy as the first choice of treatment, other times family work is incorporated after a period of individual, child, or couples therapy. I can assist families, large or small, in addressing issues that have previously caused conflict between family members. Common issues addressed for family therapies include: • Parent-Child Conflict • Parenting Adopted or Step-Children • Family Communication Problems • Defiant, Angry, or Isolated Children • Mourning and Issues of Loss • Caring for Aging Family Members

I enjoy seeing whole or parts of family systems. Communication skills can be improved with 2, 3 or more at a time, as long as they are a family system, including step and blended families.Sometimes 1and 1/32 hour to 2 hour sessions are needed with families, depending on the complexity. of the situation being addressed.

An especially stressful time in the family is when their children enter the "raging hormone" stage of adolescence just as when the parents are jumbled in a state of exhaustion. When we put together an emotionally worn out parents and insolent teen-agers, we have got a perfect storm brewing. A control strategy often fails to resolve issues when the attachment needs of both ends are "injured", leading to “attachment distress.” Carefully assessing the family conflict from the perspective of attachment and structural analysis, a family therapist will not blame anyone in the family, but work to rebuild an emotionally secure family with each of its member’s needs taken into consideration.

Families are complicated, especially in today's day and age. Children, adolescents and parents endure more stress today than any other generation before them. Therapists must not only be knowledgeable, but adapt to the changing family structures and dynamics of the modern family. Our practice at The Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center specializes in helping families bring back the joy, connection and synergy that has dwindled over the years, utilizing our own model of therapy called, Family Synergy Counseling. Families benefit by learning communication skills, develop healthier boundaries, regain respect and understanding for each member of the family, and become happier altogether.

Family therapy is not about shame and blame. It is a wonderful way to look at the system and how the system operates. There are strengths and weaknesses within all families. In family therapy focus is put on understanding family interactions and the forces that reinforce positive interaction or may be contributing to failure causing pain and hurt. In family therapy, family members becomes aware of unhealthy interactions and dynamics. They are then better able to recognize what needs to change and therefore improve the functioning of the family system.

Family therapy is complex nowadays exacerbated by high divorce rates and blended families. There's an necessary built-in awareness and empathy that has to exist in order to help these families. It requires more than knowledge and understanding, but rather an ability to read, interpret and redirect not one individual but an entire group of individuals who are invested in each other and needing insight, guidance and intervention. Not easy. Family Systems theory drives my work in this realm. It's all about the relationship and the impact each person has on the other. I've been trained in Gottman Couples Therapy - a leading expert in this area.

I work with a lot of adolescents struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Family involvement is an important component of their treatment, as adolescence is a challenging developmental period to navigate. Adolescent clients often feel misunderstood and isolated in their experiences, so communication is an important factor in alleviating these feelings.

Life is complicated. It is hard to create and maintain healthy relationships with those we love the most. There are many different thoughts and feelings, from the past and present, that exist in all of our interactions with one another. It isn’t always simple, whether we are trying to effectively communicate feelings, establish rules for the household, navigate the waters of intimacy, guide our children toward a successful future or simply attempting to provide a healthy meal while working, studying, and cleaning. The world and our family lives are increasingly more complex. Though we all have the tools within ourselves and within our relationships to create thelives we want.

I primarily work with children and teens on an individual basis, but sometimes find that family work is necessary. I find it most helpful when the relationship between child and caregiver is strained and needs to be repaired and strengthened. Family therapy can also be helpful when the family has difficulty communicating at home and attempts to do so result in intense fighting. Family therapy compliments individual therapy very well and allows the parent to have an active role in their child's healing journey.

In dealing with families, I strive to help to improve communication and conflict resolution techniques. Often, members of familiies mean well, but express their needs and dis-satisfactions in a way that increases conflict and turmoil. In home conflicts often escalate and lead to withdrawal or explosive incidents. A calmer, problem resolution is possible in and office setting with a neutral party. In such a setting, we are usually able to effect better listening to one another and achieve the kind of understanding and acceptance that leads to greater family harmony.

My greatest desire and joy is to meet with families who want to learn how to communicate better in the home, to listen to each other, respect each other and in short, to get along well. I counsel from my belief that the mother and father are the leaders of their family. However, I treat each individual family member with the respect they deserve, and by listening to and addressing each family member's issues within the family. I used Person-Centered, Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in working with families, because I believe these counseling theories work best in the 'real world' where families really live, dealing with REAL problems in getting along with each other.

Does it seem like your family is just off? or maybe like one person is to blame? Sometimes, the adults think that a child is root cause of an issue, but many times they may be the symptom to a bigger family issue. Many times I work with kids whose behaviors have escalated, and parents are looking for support. I then walk alongside them and the child to help identify the symptoms, the underlying issues as a family, and work towards living a more fulfilling life. Most times youth learn new ways to cope, as well as parents learning to decipher the codes that kids are trying to tell us. Call me for a free phone consultation and I'll help you assess if family therapy is right for you!

Our approach to family therapy includes examination of individual members of the family. It is frequently observed that a family member who may have a psychiatric disorder is a source of conflict in the family. If that individual or individuals are not identified, it is unlikely that family therapy will work. So the first step is to rule out serious psychiatric disorders in the family. Our approach is to make an effective change in individuals and then work with the group because we believe that a machine can not work efficiently if all parts don't work equally well.
