Your Family Deserves to be Happy and Healthy
Does your once organized home, now feel like a clustered house full of people who don’t know their right from their left?
Are the people in your house so overwhelmed with everyday tasks, that the quality time that you once shared no longer exist?
Do people say and do whatever they want in your household, with no course of action, due to the lack of boundaries in your home?
Are you in a blended family, and trying your best to bridge the two families together, with no success?
Are you coming from a family dynamic, that you know is unhealthy, and you want to break ties but don’t know how to do so?
Do you dread holidays, family reunions, anniversaries, and any other time that you might be expected to spend with your family?
Do you find yourself getting butterflies when you are around this one family member, and you want to escape but feel like you can’t?
Family relationships are the most important relationships we have. Yet, they are the most complex and not always easy to navigate.
Since families come in all shapes and sizes, my therapeutic approach is customized to meet the needs and goals of your family. I utilize a systemic, strength, and goal oriented approach to support your family in reaching their goals and dreams.
Family therapy is unique, because it enables therapists to assess various problems at a systemic and interactional level. Rather than diagnosing or treating an individual who presents with a problem, family therapists take time to explore the context surrounding the presenting complaint as well as each family member’s relationship to it. This allows me to collaborate with the family and co-construct effective solutions.
Because each family is incredibly unique, I must explore their relational dynamics, longstanding patterns, belief systems, rituals, and other factors that may be contributing to the development and persistence of problems. Although family members may have the purest of intentions, their attempts to solve problems can easily become part of the system that maintains the problem.
