I work with adolescents, adults, and couples from a trauma informed and attachment based lens.
It is an honour and a privilege to be invited into a person’s journey as they navigate the complexities of this world. It is possible you are noticing difficulties related to anxiety, mood, stress, life transitions, or have experienced trauma or loss. You may also be noticing challenges in your relationships and are seeking ways to foster healthier connections, improve emotional intimacy, or address communication issues. Therapy can be incredibly beneficial to understand ourselves better, find healing from pain, deepen our connections with others, and create sustainable change to move through life with more ease and meaning.

Clients are more than an issue or a diagnosis, and therapy needs to reflect this. People need to be understood in their entirety, and therapy should adapt to the whole of what they present.

Couples Counselling

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
