Family therapy needs to be engaging for it to be helpful. It can be daunting, with some family members not feeling safe enough to say what they truly feel. Each family member deserves to be understood, and to be a part of something special. The family therapist needs to connect with each member of the family. Encouraging humor, creativity, and stretching comfort levels are all part of the process.

We are all social beings that come from a family system. It is through growing up in a system that we learn how to socialize with others. There are many things that affect us as individuals as well as the family as a whole within the different dynamics of the systems we live in. I meet individuals and families where they are at and seek to understand the strengths & weaknesses of the system & work with them to achieve time-framed & realistic goals for healthier functioning. Awareness, understanding, boundaries & effective communication are just a few of the dynamics I address to strengthen individuals and relationships in the family system.

When working with children and adolescents, family therapy is often a part of the treatment plan since a child's or adolescent's behavior impacts a family and vice versa. I use a systems approach to family therapy and often explore the communication patterns, roles, and rules of the family. I help families examine the interactions and/or dynamics of the family that are working and the patterns and/or interactions that are not.

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!

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.

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.

Family Counseling is interesting as you have not just one group dynamic, but several smaller group dynamics such as the parents, the siblings, one each to the other....A counselor really needs to know how to take control of these sessions so no one feels ganged up on and no one becomes the scapegoat for all the problems. It's often good to have 2 counselors available if there is more than 5 people attending. This type of counseling can include blended families, adoptive families, foster families, or families that might have children whom are involved with Child Protective Services, School Services, or the Judicial System. I have advocated on behalf of the them in these systems!

All families are different and unique and all families experience periods of difficulty and disconnectedness. It can sometimes take the help of an outside perspective to assist families with identifying dysfunctional patterns and dynamics that exist within a family to try to bring better cohesion, communication, and unity to the family unit. I can help with exploring underlying difficulties that exist within family units, help families talk to and listen to each other more effectively, and work with you to create a more peaceful and overall happier family unit.

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.
