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!

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!

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.

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.

Family therapy can be extremely beneficial in restoring the peace back into relationships within the family that are not currently working, due to any number of constraints. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I encourage more members of the family to be involved in the therapeutic process to restore relationships both inside the therapy space, and to use the tools learned in therapy together to outside of therapy and in the true context of the relationship.

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 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

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.
