Working to change a family dynamic takes everyone in the family to participate. When a family works together in this way; learning new skills, perspectives and "language" to describe their experience, amazing "breakthroughs" can happen for each individual. Often families create an "identified patient", making just one person do the work. But that individual can only go so far if the entire dynamic of the family remains unchanged. Especially when working with pre-teens and teens, I like to engage the entire family unit-exploring dynamics that need to be addressed before substantial change in any individual can be solidified.

I believe in the healing power of family. It is essential to work with parents and caregivers in helping a child/adolescent heal. It is important to strengthen the family, help with communication, and provide tools for healing and better understanding among its members. I feel it is important to give each family member a voice and create respect for one another.

I use structural and strategic Systems Family Therapy, which means it is very useful to meet with as many members of the immediate family together as we can to help all of you make changes that result in a more peaceful environment. When family members feel heard and understood, there is a de-escalation of conflict. Maybe there is a need for more members to share the workload in the home, or for more family-together time. Maybe there has been a misunderstanding or broken boundaries, or even a need for mediation among family members. Families have appreciated how their bonds have strengthened through this work.

Systemic, Adlerian, Imago and Logo Therapy, and Christian Vaue-based Counseling are all proven therapy approaches used with couples and families. At Marriage & Family Life, we look at the entire family system, their core beliefs and boundary systems, and how they function as a team to assess the bigger picture of strengths, weaknesses, and most of all the possible solutions to resolve marital, parenting, teen, and child rearing issues.

Relationships are some of the most shaping aspects of a person's world. Family therapy considers improving people's relationships as the most way to improve their lives. Whether it is better communication with a partner, warmer interactions between a parent and child, confronting a caretaker about abuse or neglect, or finding forgiveness for hurting someone you love, family therapy uses a system's approach to shape your relationships into what you want them to be.

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.

When one person in a family makes a change or has a problem, there is a ripple effect--sometimes that's for the better and sometimes 'not so much'! I pay attention to the hierarchies and help parents take on the roles that work best when raising children. This is particularly important in blended family situations. Sometimes its important to have a counseling session with all the family members and other times with just the parents.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

104 W MAIN STE 207, Puyallup, Washington

I help couples to come to a consensus, to get on the same page, when it comes to raising children, to truly present themselves as a parenting unit, and thus have a more peaceful and rewarding family life. Our children have enough friends in their lives, what they truly need from us is to loving confident, and united parents. I can help you to achieve that.

How families interact is affected by many things including beliefs and values, individual differences of family members and influences from the outside world including extended family, work and the community. Using family systems based therapies our counselors consider each individuals needs while partnering with the family to create positive changes. Let us help your family increasing communication and conflict management skills, navigate through family changes and transitions and create understanding and insight while working through difficult situations.

Often there are times when our very family seems to be falling apart. It can feel hopeless and it can be easy to pin the blame on one or two people in a family. In my work with families, I seek to explore each members' unique voice and contribution to the struggles that our occurring. I find that when this is engaged and in an honest and open way, the issues are able to be addressed and worked through for the benefit of all. However, it often requires a therapist who can see from another perspective to help a family move together in a different direction together.

I currently teach a course in family systems theory because I love working with families. I feel very at home in this environment. It is though I was made to do family work. I particularly enjoy working with families with adolescents or adult children who are going through significant transitions such as a death or divorce or challenges such as coping with recovery from an eating disorder in one family member. I am very familiar with family based treatment approaches.
