“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”
Today, many families face challenges like never before in our society. We are all products of our environment, and sometimes the family environment may have created generations of dysfunctional behaviors, and communication skills that have led to negative outcomes. I enjoy working with families from all diverse backgrounds, and enjoy helping them identify dysfunctional behaviors and to replace them with positive behaviors.
I also find working with adolescent members of a family particularly rewarding. It is important that adolescents, particularly those within a blended family, feel valued and understood. In order to do so, boundaries and positive communication skills are at the core of creating deeper, healthier relationships, that will have a positive outcome for years to come.
