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.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

In working with families and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

My approach to family therapy is to look for the source of the family conflict. After over 37 years of practice, I can usually zero in on what is going on. Sometimes one parent is out of control. Sometimes parents are in conflict over child-rearing practices; one is too permissive and one too strict. Sometimes one child is favored over another. I generally meet with the whole family over a period of time, encouraging honest and constructive communication. Through patient guidance, the problems surface and are worked out.

Are members of your family having a tough time getting along? Perhaps your family needs some help ironing out communication problems. Or perhaps conflict is causing tremendous strain or tearing the family apart. Family therapy can help teach you & your family important skills to help deepen your connections, resolve disagreements and get through stressful times. Helpful for families that are traditional, blended or LGBTQ or for sub-sets in families like fathers & daughters, mothers and sons, adult siblings or in-laws.

Your family is a system, and when in conflict, is sometimes dealing with something called enmeshment which is like a big, tangled ball of yarn. We want to help each member of your family communicate their wants and needs and work on helping each of you be strong, whole individuals as well as part of that system instead of a big tangled mess. Let's work with your reality and with each person's strengths to get your family unit united again.

Our family system, both past and present and cultural traditions have a great influence on us individually and in our relations to others.

Is your family fighting? Do you avoid discussing certain issues? Is a family member suffering or engaging in self-defeating behaviors that scare the entire family? Family Therapy can help each individual take responsibility for his/her own behavior and make the necessary changes to improve life satisfaction. Family therapy also allows for each member to learn how to communicate effectively and respectfully, so that the entire family can be more constructive at handling any crisis or challenge. If your family is struggling, please consider contacting us. We would be happy to answer your questions and schedule an appointment to begin the work of improving your family's situation.

What do you do when your family life is such a struggle…when you’ve read every psychology book, magazine and blog to get answers but the advice is contradictory and usually impractical? If it seems like you don’t know which way to turn, then you’ve come to the right place. Through proven, practical techniques, I can help you work through the stress, anger and conflict that arises from issues that can prevent you from fully enjoying time with your family.

When there is dysfunction in a family, going to therapy can be a very effective way for the entire family to learn how to communicate and express themselves in a way that the other members can hear them. They will also learn how to listen and hear each other. There is often an "identified patient" assigned by other family members but it is generally the family's dynamics that need to be explored rather than focusing on one member. I will help you to see, understand and change those dynamics.

I focus on specific relationships , rather than the entire family. Like I do in couples work, I would see the two of you both together and individually. I evaluate these cases carefully to make sure that I would be able to be of service to both of you. Usually whatever is going wrong has a long history, and we will unravel that. It may take a bit of time, but can be done if you are willing and patient.

Family life is a multi-layered experience for each person. No two family members experience family life, or the relationships within the family, in exactly the same way. For this reason, family therapy is a very active, dynamic process. Although several family members may see me initially to explain what they think is problematic, I like to see the entire family together as soon as possible. My work with families focuses on helping each person explain their needs and hear how others in the family feel hurt and misunderstood. Reducing the stress and conflict within the family is the purpose of learning in sessions how to communicate clearly.

Family can be a wonderful source of strength and love, but the dynamism of so many individuals and their own needs and desires can also create different and new challenges. My goal as a therapist that works with both individuals and couples is to help you understand your family dynamics and needs so that I can provide you with the tools and techniques to thrive within your family life as it is now.

Families are complicated. Each person in a family plays his or her own role, and the way each person behaves when the whole family is together is not necessarily the same as when they are apart. At the Lukin Center, we use emotionally focused therapy to help families understand the complex dynamics among all family members and to help each individual in the group feel heard, supported, and understood.

My approach to Family Counseling focuses not only on the behaviors, which are usually the symptoms, of the members of the family but on the root causes, which are various aspects of parenting, boundaries and respect for one another. We will discuss and work on family roles and responsibilities, how to speak and interact with each other, conflict resolution and management and more.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Each of you has a role being played out in your family - and possibly not the obvious one you imagine. I take a 'structuralist' approach to family therapy - looking at what is taking place between members rather than to individuals. We will explore these events/relationships and work on changing patterns of interaction that on one hand have developed in your family, but on the other are likely continuations of patterns played out before, perhaps for generations. These can change - and it is usually for everyone's benefit.

We are part of something larger than ourselves and that is why we tend to encounter difficulties in dealing with simple things in life such as learning how to live together, raising children or coping with adolescence. In Family Therapy, as opposed to Individual Therapy, we explore, understand and address issues family members present at their source. Emotional origins of personal conflicts get exposed throughout roles and dynamics; part of my work with families include to question and re-frame them to mobilize stagnation and create room for new experiences.

I work with parents and family members of children with developmental delays. It is hard enough to raise a child in this day and age. The stress and conflict associated with caring for a child with special needs can be devastating and overwhelming if you do not have the support and tools you need. Know that you are not alone. One in five children are diagnosed with ASD and it seems that almost everyone has a family member or friend touched by special needs issues. I am here to help whether it be working through feelings, venting, managing difficult issues or behaviors with your children or navigating the difficult systems that are in place to get them the services they need.
