Family relationships can be a strong source of support. Family relationships are unique from friendships and conflict in these relationships can increase stress in our lives and reveal pain. Sometimes family conflict presents as stress and tension at family gatherings and during interactions, but sometimes can be part of larger issues such as child custody and divorce. Examination of family conflict often leads to an enhanced sense of personal contentment. When left unresolved family conflict can be triggered by seemingly routine life events and experiences and create pain in our lives. There can be events that have occurred in the context of family that are associated with high degrees of confusion, pain, and shame.
I offer a warm and safe place to engage in family conflict counselling. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people who present with family conflict being their primary concern. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.
It is very important to not self-diagnosis and mental health changes that can occur when being faced with family conflict. With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but grieving can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional. Talk therapy is very effective at working with family conflitct issues.
Because of the wide variety of reactions, and the complexities and subtleties of professional diagnosis and treatment, feel free to call me to discuss further. I am experienced and trained in a variety of treatment and assessment methods. Contact a licensed mental health professional or your family doctor if you have concerns about family conflict.
