So much of what we enjoy in life involves family relationships. Sadly, family relationships can also be a source of great pain. Many people feel deep obligations to family members who are irresponsible and self-destructive. Others struggle to know how to relate to family members they simply don't enjoy being around. With my extensive background in family systems theory I'm often able to help persons make fresh decisions about family relationships.

In counseling with families, I use the approach known as "Family Systems" theory. Basically, Family Systems theory views the family an an integrated whole, rather than simply separate individuals who live together. So, presenting problems in family therapy are treated with various family dynamics in mind. Family members are helped to gain insight into possible ways each individual may be contributing to conflict and inadequate relationships within the family unit. In family therapy sessions, family members are encouraged to address issues with each other in a safe setting of the counseling office. Communication skills, including appropriate assertiveness, are given strong focus.

None of us grow up in a vacuum sealed container free of the influences of others. The most powerful influences are our family, both past and present. AND rarely is the distress leading a person to seek counseling in isolation from family. Typically the distress in drenched in relational dynamics. The most powerful and enduring change takes place in the context of relationships. Even if the family is not present for all counseling, the family perspective is critical to take into account. When family members can be present, counseling can often be the most productive. Larger families may require longer than typical sessions.
