Family Therapy

Family dynamics are constantly shifting and can be complex. Families may seek out therapy to learn how to communicate better and resolve general conflicts, or to address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family. Family therapy can help improve troubled relationships between partners, children or other family members. It will also help families to recognize unhealthy patterns and teach skills to replace those with positive, healthy communication. A family therapist will help members of your family gain the skills to get through stressful times, communicate more openly, and grow closer. Family therapy is often short-term and it can include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Think your family might benefit from family therapy?

In our work together, we may find the need to bring in important relationships into treatment as healthy relationships will inevitably effect our "individual" health.

My passion is to help families who are hanging on by a string. The love that parents have for their children is universal. Every parent wants to provide their children with more than what they had growing up. But the blueprint of parenting that we were raised by is entirely different from the blueprint needed to raise a teen in our ever-changing, technology-driven, modern day culture. Parenting is the most humbling journey with the most steep learning curve but you are not alone.
