I work with young adults who are trying to recast and understand long standing issues with their parents and siblings. Problems between parents and adult children include academic/career expectations, divorce/separation, chronic illness, loyalty expectations and creating healthy boundaries in families. Working with each other can help foster improved listening and resolve conflicts to create solutions and deeper understanding.

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.

We will identify goals that your family would like to work on, and can spend sessions focusing on improving in specific areas identified. Using Systems therapy and Emotionally-Focused therapy, I will focus on identifying how individual and family needs may coincide or conflict with each other, and help your family learn new patterns of interacting with each other.

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.

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. Through our psychotherapy approaches whether parenting coaching, couples or...(view profile to read more)

I grew up in a family too. What is it with this most necessary unit of human existence that makes it so problematic? Why can't we speak our truth to the people we ought to be closest to? I call it the Law of Inverse Emotional Risk (LIER). We are most likely to hide the truth from people whose love we most fear losing. In working with families, I have found that, at the root of most of their problems are secrets, unexpressed feelings, resentments, and blame. How do you talk about such things? There is a way. It has four steps: Take responsibility - Admit the past - Live together - Keep it going; TALK for short. If you want to learn it, call me, email me, come see me. You get a free first session and I will tell you all about it.

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.

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.
