Family concerns range from parenting concerns to conflicts with adult parents and siblings. When you are experiencing family difficulties, I will invite you to attend therapy together as a family, and also in separate smaller family units (eg. husband and wife, mother and daughter, etc). I will ask parents and parent figures to have some counselling sessions with me on your own, and will also meet with the children, adolescents or teens separately without the parent(s) as needed for success to occur. Similarly, when your family conflicts involve adult children and parents, I will invite you to come in as a group and also in smaller units.
Some benefits of family counselling:
- Family Counselling Helps Create a Solid and Secure Parenting Base
I have helped many parents find a way to become a solid team, so they can provide a safe and secure base from which their children and teenagers can be launched into adulthood.
- Family Therapy Helps You Cope with Aging Parents
Do you find that just as you expected to be an adult free to live your own life that suddenly you are resenting one or both of your parents’ needs and requests that seem to be taking over your entire free time? Are you caught in parenting your parents, jumping to their demands years after you expected this would stop? I can help you navigate the course of disentangling from your parents, while still providing support to them, and without needing to cut them out of your life completely.
- Family Therapy Helps Resolve Tensions Between Adult Siblings
Although you can’t change your parents or your siblings, you can make positive changes! I have helped hundreds of people disentangle from family injuries. You can make changes within yourself to be free and happy with a new way of relating to your parents or your siblings.
