Modern day living at times can strain families beyond their coping capabilities.  In session I'm interactive, and sensitive, while being very aware of respecting boundaries.  Some of the issues that I work with include:

Communication   For us to get our needs met we have to communicate what it is we want.  Effective communication will facilitate this process. In seeking counseling we have recognized that there is something about how we relate that is not working.  Therefore something has to change in this process.  For us to change there must be awareness: in our dysfunctional communication patterns, in what it is we want to communicate, and in learning better communication skills.  

Transitions  Phase of life changes such as becoming an adolescent, an empty nester, retirement, death, illness

Relationships  Conflict and discord between siblings, blended families, parents and children, extended family

Addictions   Having ones life controlled by addiction, whether it be alcohol, medications, video gaming, pornography, shopping, or food can ruin relationships.  Take back control and begin to believe that you deserve to live a better life.
