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?

Families. You can live with them, and you can’t live without them, am I right? Whether you are born into a family, or you choose your own, you may be a part of more than one family system. Regardless of the configuration, many family groups experience challenges and issues that often lead to conflict. Much like counseling for individuals, the work in family therapy is focused on improving relationship dynamics and breaking old habits.

During marriage and family counseling sessions, I work with all members of the family to identify and address the underlying issues that are causing problems in the relationship. This often involves helping each member of the family to better understand their own feelings and needs, as well as those of other family members.

I truly enjoy working with adult family members to come together to change and heal. Families tell me that my humor, strengths-based nature, and ability to be on everyone’s team at the same time are qualities that help them take courageous risks in therapy. I help family members connect with one another emotionally, to help them understand the dynamics that keep them in unhelpful interaction patterns, and identify the intergenerational ways they have built their family story.
