Family Therapy

 

                                   -  I currently work with parents and their children to provide

                                      support, education and skills to learn to be direct and

                                      straight without the need to play games.  You are learning

                                      that you can only change yourself, and see how that can

                                      improve your relationships.

 

 

 

Family therapy is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families to nurture change and development, in order to move away from the ‘drama triangle‘ that unhappy families play as described by transactional therapist, Stephen Karpman in 1968.  The three roles which are: Perpetrator/Persecutor, Rescuer and Victim operate to keep people in the illusion of power.  The roles incorporate learned patterns of habit and control mechanisms that bond people together in a dysfunctional way.  They are symbiotic, destructive behaviors that affect all members of the family.  These roles are the unconscious script of how unhealthy family life is played out.  The roles keep people disconnected from true intimacy.  Each family member ‘moves around the triangle’ shifting roles as needed.

 

The goal of Family therapy is to learn how to get off the triangle of dysfunction, and move to a clear and nurturing space for the individual and the entire family.

TERMS

 

Therapy sessions are reserved specifically for each client.  Continuity and reserving sessions are important for your progress.  Please notify me at least 48 hours in advance if you must cancel your appointment.  If possible we can agree on another time, preferably within a week’s period.  I will not charge you for the missed session if it is beyond the 48 hours notice.  I will not charge  for missed session once per year for extreme extenuating circumstances.  Without 48 hours advanced notice, I charge for the session since I cannot use it to see another client.  I will give you several weeks notice of my vacations and ask that you do the same.  Termination should be discussed in full.  Generally, a termination that gradually tapers off therapy is advisable. You may pay weekly, preferably at the beginning of each session, or at the beginning of each month.  Special arrangements may be made by mutual agreement.  Please be aware that I do not accept insurance, however, I am willing to work within your budget. You will be charged a $25 service charge for returned checks.

 

Your fee is sufficient payment.  For sake of your growth, I do not accept gifts for holidays or special events, nor socialize at social gatherings.
