Couples & Family Therapy

The Improvement You Are Looking For

Would Couples or Family Therapy help?

Are you and your child or you and your partner having trouble relating, communicating, or resolving conflict? 
If part of a blended household are there challenges with parenting differences at different households or children acting out for one set of parents but not the other?

Are you and your partner at a pivotal point with major events causing you both upset or pause? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Couples or Family counseling could be right for you.

What can you expect in couples counseling?

Simply put, couples counseling can help you to discover the best way to meet both your individual needs and your needs as a couple. Through fostering open communication and conflict resolution, couples counseling with me can move you and your ‘system’ in a renewed healthier direction. Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Clinic strategies are integrated to address your relationship concerns

If you and your partner have tried handling a situation on your own, or through side conversations with friends and family members, and you’re still feeling stuck, couples counseling may be the answer.

What can you expect in family counseling?

Whether you come to me as a traditional or blended family, or you’re managing a single-parent household, I will work with you and your loved ones to solidify a healthy family structure and regain balance and more control as parent/partners in your family system.

Together, we’ll make sure that all involved have their voices heard and understood so that as a family, you can open
lines of communication and build the foundation for a healthy and happy future.

For some families, the system needs care, and reimagining. In my work as a structural therapist, we would work on addressing any underlying patterns that are getting in the way of healthier more joyful family connections. By using Structural Family Therapy integrated with Narrative Therapy helps families move to healthier patterns and more secure boundaries.
