Family Therapy can be one of the most dynamic ways to engage healing - sometimes in unexpected ways. In Family Therapy, each member of the family has the opportunity to learn about the (usually unspoken) rules governing how the family operates, and specifically how they have fit into, or chafed against the family rules and systems. In some cases, the family will encounter how a family member has been identified as the main problem. They will also learn how their relationships within the family are connected to what has been covertly and overtly passed on from generations before them.

Family Therapy is done from a holistic systems perspective. We examine the challenges you experience as a family, the dynamics of communication, the age of the children involved, and the relationship issues between the members in the family unit. This requires everyone to be open, honest, and reflective, and to be willing to try new ideas. Supportive resources are also provided to enhance the counseling work done in this practice.

Families can be complicated, but I find that finding simple keys to good communication provide the foundation to re-build the house. Jus as a river bends, each family member has a different experience as they navigate the same river as their family members depending on the path down it they navigate. Through sharing individual emotions and experiences of similar life events, communication can improve which leads to happier families.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Conflicts between family members can be complex and emotionally charged. If recent life changes, parenting challenges, emotional disorders, or behavior problems are straining relationships within your family, professional treatment could be extremely beneficial. Family history, relationship issues and communication patterns and styles are explores as well as individual experiences and perspectives. The therapist will work with the family towards a greater understanding between the family members. Family therapy includes work with divorced families, blended families, single-parent families, and various constellations of family. All types of families are respected and welcome.

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.

Systems Therapy techniques are often used to work with families. Families present unique issues in therapy. Often different family members are in a role that supports the family to stay in the situation they find themselves in and therefore it is difficult for families to change difficult interactions without professional help. Identifying these roles and helping individual family members move out of those roles helps the family make progress and resolve issues that have brought them into therapy.
