Our families of origin are where we learn how to see the world, people and relationships. When families encounter significant stress or change - such as the loss of a member of or a change in status through divorce or remarriage - it can be difficult to regain equilibrium. Often it is reassuring for families to learn that what they are dealing with is normal, and given some coping strategies they can regain their good functioning. Some families need help with communication issues, appropriate boundaries, parenting strategies, or dealing with aging parents or members with alcohol and drug issues. Whatever the case may be, creater deeper understanding between family members is always key.

Family systems. The secret underground network of sewage that no one wants to talk about. But its there, waiting for you to speak truth about what happened behind closed doors. I like to offer encouragement and kindness as clients bravely open old doors they haven't touched in years. It can be terrifying, but not impossible. Clients and I have discovered whole rooms of debris that slowly needing sifting in the dark. It takes courage, but you don't have to do it alone.

Living in families is difficult. Even the best families have their days. My approach to family therapy involves examining the dynamics of relationships (e.g. roles, communication patterns) in order to assist each member to grow in healthier interactions. I subscribe to an understanding of the family as a system. In other words, no one person is the cause of current difficulties.

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 relationships can reach difficult places. Due to long-standing patterns of conflict, it can be emotionally difficult to improve parent-child and sibling relationships. I believe in the importance of facilitating mutual understanding for all parties involved in which each other feels respect and care from the other. I also teach communication skills and help family members constructively work together to improve intimacy and resolve problems.

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.

Is your family out of control? Is communication non-existent in your home? Do you long for peace and harmony? If so, you'll likely benefit from family therapy. When families come to see me we talk about the whole family, not just one or two individuals. I believe conflict in the home involves everyone, therefore family therapy should involve everyone too. I will address everyone and challenge everyone to work on their contribution to the conflict. We'll address negative patterns that develop and how to replace them with positive ones. You'll learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way and how to communicate without fighting. Call me and let's talk about a plan of action for your family.

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.

Perry Dodge, MS, MA, LPC, CPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Saint Charles, Missouri

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.
