Family Conflict

Families fight sometimes. Family conflict can arise when family members have different views or beliefs that don’t mix. Sometimes conflict can occur when members misunderstand each other and jump to conclusions. Left untreated, ongoing conflict can be stressful and damaging to relationships. If your family is experiencing disagreements, frequent arguing, physical conflict, avoidance, or a major disruption in its homeostasis, it is important to make a plan to talk to a professional who can help you through it and find ways to learn to resolve familial  problems.

I have experience working with families facing stressful situations, including: complicated grief due to unexpected loss, divorce, trauma, substance abuse and behavioral problems among one or more children in the family. I am systems-oriented and believe that even if the whole family cannot participate in counseling, we can approach counseling with the whole family in mind.
