Our skilled therapists have been trained and practiced in family-systems. A family-systems approach seeks to avoid blaming or diagnosing any one person because problems are seen as the result of the relationship dynamics within the system. We also have chosen our experienced therapists with great care. The therapists at Family Ties Counseling Center know a lot about how to be in relationship. Just as important as their education and training is their capacity to be authentic, compassionate and insightful. Collectively, we have over several decades of experience working extensively with adults and children, families and couples.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Couples Counseling External link

    Couples Counseling becomes a safe place where both you and your partner can find and rest in the deeper connection of the love you both share. Healthy committed relationships and marriages are about balancing connection & intimacy with independence & autonomy. Ideally, each influences and helps the other. Couples therapy helps to achieve this balance in your relationship.

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Using mindfulness with counseling, habitual feelings and thoughts become the focus of awareness. Mindfulness, when applied skillfully, can help slow down the process of therapy to a pace that feels safe, lowering noise and increasing inner sensitivity and insight potential.

  • Family Therapy External link

    Family systems sees your presented marital, family or even child\\'s problems as the outgrowth of the underlying relationship dynamics. This is illuminating because family systems avoids blaming or diagnosing any one person as THE problem. As you are probably well aware of, there is already too much blaming already going in the first place.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Parenting External link

    When relationships within a family are strained, parents are powerful leaders to bring their family to a place of harmony. Parents will be the leader in this process because adult brains is more developed, more adept and stronger. You have greater skills (even if sometimes you don’t feel like it).

  • Family Conflict External link

    When addressing family conflict, it can be helpful to get most or all family members for a session to work toward a common goal. Because each family member is impacted by family events, each member can contribute unique ideas about how to address the challenges. In your first session, your counselor will assess your particular family situation and then formulate a plan to meet the goals.

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    Your kids are held up and nurtured by many different relationships. From siblings, to parents, to grandparents, to friend, and teachers, your child thrives when they are connected to many safe and caring people. When your child experiences a difficulty, they need a therapeutic approach that takes into account their most essential relationships.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Couples Counseling becomes a safe place where both you and your partner can find and rest in the deeper connection of the love you both share. Healthy committed relationships and marriages are about balancing connection & intimacy with independence & autonomy. Ideally, each influences and helps the other.
