As a Family Therapist, involving the whole family is important to looking and understanding the dynamics of your unit. There will be times when all are invited for a session, with rules that hopefully promote honest discussion, non-judgmental listening, open communication and problem solving. Depending on the problems presented, there may be times when each member will have their own session such as the parental system will have their own session/s and then the sibling system will have theirs. Grandparents may be invited for a session, as well, especially if they play an ongoing supportive role in the family life.

I approach Family Therapy from the view that the family is a system of different moving parts that all affect each other and must work together to function properly. Even if it seems like only one family member may be struggling more often than not it is causing some type of distress in the rest of the family members. I strive to create connection and cohesion where it is lacking in families in order to create a happy home environment once again

Your family is probably experiencing a "bad" person. As a contextual therapist, I am aware that your family is actually one unique "ecosystem". And like an ecosystem, the system balances out. In biology, we called this phenomenon "homeostasis". I am a systems expert and all systems operate under the same rules. No corporation, government, or family is exempt. I can correct this imbalance.
