Family Therapy

Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly. The hard truth is that all of us love poorly. We need to forgive and be forgiven everyday, every hour — unceasingly. That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family.
Henri Nouwen

I like to host what Tim Weber Ph.D calls conversations of love and truth between adult children, siblings and parents.

I find that there is often a lot of pain and unspoken secrets in families. If there is safe way to have important conversations, then there is an opportunity to renegotiate these relationships, heal the pain of the past and establish closer, more honest, more open, and more fulfilling relationships between family members. In essence this work can lead to a renewal of relationships, a deepening of honesty and authenticity, and a moving out of habitual, outdated and destructive ways of relating to family members, to these people that matter.
