If you or a family member have been referred for psychological testing, you probably have some questions about what to expect.
Do you struggle with the following questions: Why is my child so uninterested or irritable lately? Does my child have a learning disability? How is our divorce affecting our child? Why does my child have so much trouble focusing at school? If you feel like you are not meeting your potential or your child is not meeting his or her potential, by utilizing comprehensive psychological assessments we can figure out the root cause of the problem and develop appropriate plans to address it.

Hi, I’m Hayley. I work with adolescents and adults for psychotherapy. I am a systemic therapist which means that I work from the perspective that we do not exist in isolation but rather within a larger system. From this view, I understand that at any moment we are embedded within a particular context that shapes our experiences and definition of problems. I see my clients from where they are at, influenced by family , work, stress, and many others that shape how they experience the world and the problems the are facing.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
