Sometimes only so much work can be done on the individual level. If the pain occured in a relationship, then the healing must take place in a relationship. Maybe you are having conflicts in your relationship that you are unable to resolve? Or someone in the family has been diagnosed with a mental health issue and the family is being effected?
My goal when working with families and couples is to help take down walls and barriers that make it hard to resolve issues. To break unhealthy patterns of relating and understand the origins of these patterns. I hope to set the foundation for healthier communicating, increased empathy and intimacy.
Some issues I focus on in my practice are:
- Coping with severe mental illness (Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder)
- Blended Families
- Family Adjustment/Planning
- Healthy Boundaries
- Substance Abuse and Addictions
- Collaborative Parenting
