What is Marriage & Family Therapy?

Marriage and Family Therapy uses the family systems approach to addressing issues in marriages, families and individuals. The therapist will look at the issue in the context of the family, and the network of relationships of the individuals. Significant research has been conducted, and determined that the family systems approach of MFT's is very effective.

Randy specializes in marriages - using various family systems techniques, including Emotional Focused, Cognitive - Behavioral, Narrative, and structural Therapies.

Randy uses an eclectic approach with his clients. This allows him to pull from many different methodologies in order to allow him to work with the different modalities that will help his clients to identify and resolve issues quickly and completely.

Addressing areas such as: conflict, communication, gender differences, personality differences, hurts in the marriage and many other issues couples face in their relationship.

Couples: People want to feel understood, valued and emotionally connected… People want to feel loved! This is what you expected when you committed to one another - but it doesn't seem to be possible …. That's not how it needs to be…. At Brookside we can help…. even if your spouse doesn't want to come to work on the relationship!

I believe in marriage - I believe that people can be very happy together in marriage. If we haven't learned the skills that make for a happy healthy relationship, we will fall short of what we could have in our marriage.

I believe that giving the right teachings that a couple can and will succeed at having a stronger, more clearly understood marriage, when they have committed to looking at new teachings and foundational areas of their marriage.
