    Families

    Psychotherapy is not just for the individual suffering from a mental health or addiction issue. A support person can be suffering as well. A support person may be a relative or non relational loved one. The pressure to “fix” the loved one may take an emotional toll and can be complicated by that individual’s family and life experience. Remember that analogy, in a plane crash put the oxygen mask on yourself before you try to put it on someone else? This highlights the importance of how self care is an important tool for your own well being and when supporting others’. Psychotherapy is an excellent manner of achieving self care.

    All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with support and education, no matter how big or small. Psychotherapy for families may involve multiple isssues that are independent of other family members or resulting from the specific family dynamics. A thorough assessment will help identify the appropriate type of therapy to address the presenting issues.

    Some issues that you may be concerned about include:

    • Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
    • Balance (Work/Life/Family)
    • Parenting
    • Chronic Illness
    • Divorce/separation
    • Extended Family
    • Codependency
    • Intimacy
    • Mood Disorders
    • Trust
    • Grief
    • Family of origin issues
    • Attachment concerns
    • Couples

    In the therapy sessions, I help people develop goals that will address the concerns and minimize conflict.
