Clients benefit from Family Counseling when everyone feels loved and respected. By providing an objective viewpoint, education, and especially working on clear communication skills and boundaries, as well as understanding the true meanings of giving grace and practicing forgiveness rather than just revenge or retaliation, the family can experience unity and a team spirit.

Families reach out for help when there is a situation that has an negative impact and is related to the functioning of all family members. Issues of addiction, mood regulation, behavior problems, separation or divorce issues, and communication difficulties are common reasons for requesting help.. Family therapy helps with supporting the hierarchy of the family, the parents, and helping the communication flow more easily so that every one can be understood and appropriate actions can be taken. In the past several years I have focused on helping adult children and their parents speak together about common concerns and come to improved understanding of one another.

There’s nothing that can bring us quite as much joy--or, at times, as much pain--as our families. Family therapy can be extremely effective because as family members offer their “take” on the problem, they indirectly become part of the solution. The families I work with often enjoy better communication with each other and a new-found mutual respect and appreciation. They also enjoy passing these things along to the next generation.

As families change over time, patterns of relationships are created to cope with stress, fear and dissonance. Often these coping strategies cover up the real issue which inevitably creates more distance. I see families as the foundation of our society and it is my passion to help empower and equip them with the tools and abilities to create a new path instead of retreading the existing one.

No matter what the family issue you are facing, I believe always helps to talk about it with someone who can stand by your side and help you sort through it. You may want to come in with your whole family, or you may want to come in alone to get some support...either way, I strive to create a safe place where you can talk about what is bothering you, and we can work through it together to figure out resources, tools, approaches, etc that will help your family move forward.

Similarly to the way all the parts of a car engine function together to make the vehicle run, family members have specific roles they fill that cause the family to operate the way it does. Families will benefit from family counseling because when something is wrong within the family system, every member can benefit from change. The good news about family therapy is that when one person begins to change, it effects change in everyone.

Family Therapy can prove to be vital for blended families or families dealing with death or divorce. My approach to family therapy involves allowing each member of the family their time to talk and process the changes in their life, and then present each members views and feelings to the other members of the family. Often the issues that arise in families comes from a place of poor communication skills verses mental illness or disorders. I use emotion-based techniques along with solution-focused methods of therapy to help a family function in a healthy manner.
