Family Counseling is important, and helps increase communication patterns and heighten family bonds.
My goal is to have the whole family present. This helps each family member feel as though their issues
Through the use of modeling, families learn
that treating others with respect can increase the quality of communication which helps heighten family bonds.
It also can reduce conflicts and increase the family's self esteem level. Another strategy is try to not
discuss issues when another family member is not present. It reduces feelings of anger
and establishes what the expectations and boundaries are.
I have had many years of experience helping couples increase their relationship bond and
more as a team (as opposed to functioning independently). Communication and trust issues are two
of the biggest reasons why relationships don't succeed. Other issues include not having
common goals related to finances, child management, and general relationship expectations. Other factors
with in-laws and other family members, compromise and outside forces that effect how you come home at the end of the day.
Using Solution Focused and Cognitive Behaviorlal technquies, I have helped couples build a
and become a more successful team. Would you like to start learning to build common goals that both of you
can be fully invested in? Wouldn't it make your lives happier if you both agreed on the direction you are
heading, and know
that you are both focused on, and commited to it?
My interventions are designed to help couples recognize when they are dwelling and/or holding onto anger
about certain issues, and instead focus on using positive coping skills that help resolve conflicts successfully.
If you could apply a set of useful tactics whenever a misunderstanding
or conflict arises, you will both be more likely to avoid
the arguements, no matter what the particular issue may be.
