Families are a beautiful and complicated system. When the family system falls apart, every member is effected. Finding ways to cope with changing family situations is necessary for a family to function. All voices and views points need to be heard. A great way to accomplish this is through family therapy sessions. I have. Lot of experience working with many different types of families and look forward to helping yours.

I have worked with families for many years, and really enjoy the opportunity to help families restore their best attributes, develop some new, healthy, and supportive ways to express themselves, and move past old limiting patterns and beliefs. I operate from the assumption that even the most struggling family has positive aspects -- parts that are working well -- and that if we knew how to make things work better, we would. I see my role with families as that of mediator, coach, teacher, supporter, and guide.

The family unit is important. It is the basis for so much in our society. Family issues can be the one thing that can tear individuals apart. It is important to understand the family dynamics and to help the family understand their roles within the family units. Once the family can understand how each individual impacts the unit as a whole, then healing can begin.

Family Counseling is interesting as you have not just one group dynamic, but several smaller group dynamics such as the parents, the siblings, one each to the other....A counselor really needs to know how to take control of these sessions so no one feels ganged up on and no one becomes the scapegoat for all the problems. It's often good to have 2 counselors available if there is more than 5 people attending. This type of counseling can include blended families, adoptive families, foster families, or families that might have children whom are involved with Child Protective Services, School Services, or the Judicial System. I have advocated on behalf of the them in these systems!

Family therapy is complex nowadays exacerbated by high divorce rates and blended families. There's an necessary built-in awareness and empathy that has to exist in order to help these families. It requires more than knowledge and understanding, but rather an ability to read, interpret and redirect not one individual but an entire group of individuals who are invested in each other and needing insight, guidance and intervention. Not easy. Family Systems theory drives my work in this realm. It's all about the relationship and the impact each person has on the other. I've been trained in Gottman Couples Therapy - a leading expert in this area.

My greatest desire and joy is to meet with families who want to learn how to communicate better in the home, to listen to each other, respect each other and in short, to get along well. I counsel from my belief that the mother and father are the leaders of their family. However, I treat each individual family member with the respect they deserve, and by listening to and addressing each family member's issues within the family. I used Person-Centered, Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in working with families, because I believe these counseling theories work best in the 'real world' where families really live, dealing with REAL problems in getting along with each other.

Does it seem like your family is just off? or maybe like one person is to blame? Sometimes, the adults think that a child is root cause of an issue, but many times they may be the symptom to a bigger family issue. Many times I work with kids whose behaviors have escalated, and parents are looking for support. I then walk alongside them and the child to help identify the symptoms, the underlying issues as a family, and work towards living a more fulfilling life. Most times youth learn new ways to cope, as well as parents learning to decipher the codes that kids are trying to tell us. Call me for a free phone consultation and I'll help you assess if family therapy is right for you!

Family therapy needs to be engaging for it to be helpful. It can be daunting, with some family members not feeling safe enough to say what they truly feel. Each family member deserves to be understood, and to be a part of something special. The family therapist needs to connect with each member of the family. Encouraging humor, creativity, and stretching comfort levels are all part of the process.

As a family unit, working through conflicts and disagreements can be a challenge. Not everyone has the same perspective or viewpoint on a given scenario. Communication is key, but only if it is within a healthy environment where those involved are willing to listen to the other's perspective with an open mind. Sometimes a mediator is required to help guide the discussion in a more positive/respectful light.

Family Therapy is crucial in helping families improve their communication with one another. My goal for family therapy is to create a safe and respectful atmosphere for all members to feel heard. Active listening exercises and activities are strategically used to help better bridge family members together. My goal is for each family member to have a voice and participate in their therapy.

I work with families whose interactions and communications need improvement or are outright dysfunctional. For example, in a family with an out of control child, it is easy to blame the family stress entirely on the child. However, the way parents or siblings react or respond to the troubled child often compounds the stress in the household. I have worked with parents and children, as well as grandparents and children, as well as grandparents and grandchildren.
