Family Therapy

Family therapy is useful for families or “blended” families that experience difficulty in resolving issues that seem to be “never-ending”. Whether the issues involve young or adult children, difficulty with aged parents, defiant teenagers, or the relationship difficulties that arise with estranged partners or “ex’s”, a neutral third party might be of benefit in developing strategies to reduce the emotional chaos experienced in these matters.

Family therapy might be beneficial if one or more of the following signs and symptoms describes your current circumstance: loss of emotional cohesiveness or harmony, never-ending arguments, loss of sexual intimacy and\or emotional infidelity, going to bed angry about a relationship issue, sleeping in separate bedrooms because of being angry about something, arguments about things that seem trivial, physical or emotional exhaustion about the relationship, getting or giving the “silent treatment” from your loved one, defiant or disrespectful behaviour from your children, increased irritability about the condition of the relationship, loss of privacy among family members, the repeated “testing” of a family member’s love.

As a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, I can assist in bringing some calm to the situation.
