Functional Family Therapy in Calgary that Works
Kathleen takes a ‘Family Systems’ approach to family therapy that treats the entire family as a unit, and works to create healthier more effective dynamics, patterns, and communication. Our psychologists takes a systems approach to family therapy; we work diligently and compassionately to align with the needs of each family member. Every voice matters!
Family Restructuring Therapy (FRT): As part of her work with Alberta Justice, and also offered privately, Kathleen offers FRT, which is a form of Brief Conflict Intervention aimed at finding new ways for family members to interact and function within their family systems – no matter what the configuration. Kathleen promotes a no-nonsense approach to serving the best interests of those beautiful beings at the hub of the family: the kiddos. Kathleen has completed additional training in this area, which, coupled with her policing experience, makes her very effective in high-conflict family dynamics.
Kathleen strives to ‘join’ the family in order to understand what governs the family’s functioning in an attempt to identify specific issues that need to be addressed, that will result in healthier functioning as a whole. Kathleen has over five years’ experience working with families, not to mention her own, and would be honored to join your family in their journey to conflict resolution and healthier relationships!
