The word family can evoke a myriad of emotions ranging from safe and warm to scary and confusing. As parents, we bring baggage, good and bad, to our current family experience. Our children, with their unique personalities and needs, impact the home, also for the good and bad. If you are seeking family therapy, you have a recognized a need for a change in your home's dynamics. My years of experience as a family therapist will benefit you as we work to set limits and boundaries to build the structure your family needs to thrive.

Parenting is a challenging and rewarding role. Unfortunately no one teaches us how to parent. Most people tend to do what their parents did or in some cases the exact opposite. When that doesn't work they can be at a loss. If you are struggling with parenting I can help. My approach in Family Therapy focuses on helping the parent(s) learn new parenting techniques by understanding their child's developmental stage and needs, setting and following through with limit setting and strengthening the connection with the child.

There are many issues that can arise in a family setting that can affect the family dynamic and cause emotional issues for different members of the family. Children are at the highest risk to be affected by these family issues. One of the main problems that arises are attachment issues, either becoming too dependent on a parent, or not forming enough of an attachment with a parent. After a divorce you may decide to remarry. This is another major change for both you and your children. A therapist can be very effective at finding out what is troubling your child and help them deal with their emotions.

Family systems can be complex. Each person brings with them a different set of ideas, personalities, and obstacles. My goal in working with families is to help you identify barriers that are preventing your family from thriving. We will work together to understand each member of the family and how to better communicate with each other.

Families respond very positively to an objective person who allows each participant to be heard. When we have more pieces of the puzzle all working together in my office, we begin to see the real shape of the problem, not just the picture the stronger members of the family project. Then we can work together on what is real and see everyone benefit from the counseling. I'd love to help your family!!!

We work to nurture change and development of effective interaction between family members, as family relationships are a significant factor in psychological health. Our therapists believe that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an "individual" or "family" issue, involving families in solutions is often beneficial through direct participation in the therapy session. The family may be immediately related, or may include strongly supportive, long-term relationships between people who may or may not be related by blood or marriage.

Family therapy is different than individual treatment in that all family members are the identified patient, as opposed to one specific individual. We know that each member of a family plays a specific role in their family's dynamics, and sometimes those roles become dysfunctional for the family, but it is not always easy to identify the problem. A therapist is able to approach the family from a different perspective and identify the problem. Out team is passionate about working with family members to develop healthy patterns in which to engage with one another.

I do my best to mediate, to help family members find their way back or heal the hurts of childhood or estrangements of adulthood. Prefer working with adult family members to restore relationships. Grown children still need the parents to fix the difficulties encountered growing up. I believe it is the adults' responsibility to maintain order in a family.

Families have communication styles that may not equal collaborative communication. Using Family Systems Therapy theory research, I can help your family develop effective communication and still have family members retain their true person. Families have a way of caring for family members through positive attachment and you are shown how to attach positively as a family system.

Families are the rock of our society. We need family time. We need to be able to express ourselves in away that communicates good will and kindness. It is my goal to bring back family fun and communication. I look at the individuals and how they play off each other. It is the basic belief that everyone is important and needed. Let the family love.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), a treatment program for young children with behavioral difficulties (e.g., aggression, non-compliance, defiance, and temper tantrums) that focuses on promoting positive parent-child relationships and interactions and teaching parents effective child management skills. Parents who go through the PCIT program can expect to receive teaching and coaching sessions in two phases. The first phase focuses on Relationship Enhancement, or child directed interaction skill building. Parents are taught and coached how to use specific interaction strategies during short periods of play to reinforce positive behaviors.

Our family relationships can bring us great fulfillment and happiness; sometimes family can also be a source of pain. Lack of communication and poor communication can lead to major misunderstandings between family members. Our family knows our strengths and shortcomings better than anyone else. Psychotherapy can help if you are experiencing conflict in your family, if members get stuck in certain roles or patterns of behavior with each other, or if you have estrangement between family members. By teaching communication skills, I can help you let go of longstanding issues and struggles and get back to positive loving relationships with each other.

When one member of the family is using drugs, has defiant behavior, or a conduct disorder . . . the entire family spins out of control. My strategies help families end the chaos and find peace. When a crisis intervention is necessary I have the skills and the team to respond quickly. I am trained in many types of family therapy and use an integrative approach to resolving conflict.

People seek Family Therapy for myriad reasons: major life changes, such as: divorce, reblending families, a major health crisis, a death, or problems that are ongoing, such as: parent-child conflict, parental conflict, behavior problems, communication problems, developmental challenges at any point (Development is life long! You can have a developmental crisis at any time; think of retirement and aging!) In today's culture, divorce is common, and it is common for multiple households to share parenting demands and schedules. These are ripe grounds for high emotions and conflict. It isn't just the kids who get caught up in the middle; we all do. Learn how to spare suffering for everyone; learn
