Family Therapy

No individual lives in isolation, and our families of origin have a tremendous impact on our sense of self & ability to feel safe in the world.  While our family members are often the most dear people in our lives, they are also the ones with the highest potential to trigger us & provoke intense emotions.  It can be tremendously helpful & healing to bring awareness to ingrained & often unconscious patterns of communication & interaction with our families.

 

I enjoy creating safe & supportive space for families to come together to explore these habitual patterns and develop solutions for accessing greater peace & ease within the family structure.  I often offer family therapy in conjunction with therapy for adolescents & children, since supporting the family unit is an integral part of supporting a young person's individual success.  My clients have told me that their relationships have been greatly enhanced from the insights gained in family therapy sessions.
