Family Therapy

"Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference."
-Virginia Satir

Are you having a difficult time communicating with your children? Maybe they are experiencing difficulty expressing and sharing their feelings.

Is your child being bullied at school, showing signs of depression, engaging in self-injurious behaviors, or experiencing thoughts of suicide?

Have you and your partner been arguing over how to discipline or parent your children?

Is your blended family just not blending?

Families are diverse and have a unique story to tell. From my systems training and background, family of origin and relationships influence individuals and facilitates change. Individuals and their "symptoms" cannot be fully understood without the discussion and integration of family of origin and family unit. Families have variations in structure, roles and responsibilities, and communication styles. With that said, Deborah is particularly passionate about and enjoys working with families, as each member brings a refreshing and meaningful perspective. Deborah has acquired valuable experience working with families and conducting family therapy at various sites.
