When working with children and youth, the therapist cannot ignore the family system in which the child lives. I work with parents in multiple ways to help support youth in treatment, which may include separate parent sessions, co-parenting sessions, systemic family therapy, or Filial Therapy, a play therapy practice that coaches and guides parents in special play sessions with their child to decrease unwanted behaviors, improve relationships and communication, increase the child's emotional vocabulary, and increase the child's self-esteem.

I work with families who are facing a crisis and want help to mentor and counsel them to be able to communicate better, equip them with tools to foster better boundaries, and to facilitate cooperative listening so all members feel heard and understood. Family dynamics are stressful, at times, and not everyone, in a family will like each other all the time, but fostering love and empathy and compassion are very important in the healing process.

I help families identify how they interact with each other, to see and understand their own patterns of behavior. Together we determine which patterns are helpful and which get in the way. We keep interactions which help, and substitute new interactions for those that interfere. Family members talk to each other in the sessions. We replicate familiar, frustrating situations which occur at home. New solutions found in the sessions are then practiced and applied at home.
