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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
