Feeling stuck and disconnected from ourselves and our loved ones is a common human experience in this day in age. Yet, all of us have a deep longing to feel empowered and engaged, to love and be loved, and to experience a deep and meaningful life. Relationships are the core of our fulfillment, and they all start with our relationship to ourselves. However struggles are manifesting, uncovering the layers of our defenses and opening to our inner world and true selves is a courageous journey worth travelling.

My view on counselling is based upon the level of trust and the quality of the connection that we are able to create together. In essence, the relationship that we develop together is key. I would wish to provide you with a safe, caring environment where you could come to feel completely heard and understood. I see my role as being more of a Guide, offering support while at the same time gently encouraging your growth by pointing out certain areas, thoughts, beliefs or behaviours that may be keeping you stuck, or that you may be unaware of.

The key to healthy relationship with self and others is CONNECTION.
In a world where people are experiencing increased anxiety and isolation it is important to find a place of safety and belonging. I believe people have the resources within themselves to thrive in this ever changing and complex society and it is my responsibility to guide you through the process of finding your own strengths. I have experience working with children and youth who struggle with anxiety issues stemming from family strife, school stress and self-esteem. I do family mediation and work with clients individually or as a couple. Without relationship human beings are lost, we crave connection.

Relationship counselling is a specialty most therapists lack.
When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Are you struggling in your relationship ? Do you get frustrated at your partner, your mother, your co-workers or your boss? Have you thought that if you moved jobs, or countries, or changed your relationship that life would change; only to realize that you are having the same experience all over again? Sometimes we wish that people would just do what we want them to or be a certain way so that we can feel better. Often we think our relationships need to change when change must really begin within ourselves. If you are ready to look at who you are in your relationships, I'm here to help you discover who that is and why!

Through therapy, you can save your relationships. In therapy I connect with: the potential you have to develop a nurturing, loving and caring relationship and the tender hearts behind the rigid and negative patterns that may have developed in your relationships. I believe: Relationships and desire to connect are the core of human experience. Your relationship , regardless of how severe your problems are, has the potential to become a safe and supportive base and comforting haven.

We could face many challenges together, yet I have special skill and interest in romantic relationships — especially nontraditional relationship structures, such as ethical non-monogamy — as well as gender identity and sexual orientation.
Do you feel stuck, either within yourself or with someone you're close to, and wonder what is holding you back? You desire being your true self and communicating authentically. Sometimes things feel all mixed up or dissonant, and feelings of sadness, confusion, or anxiety can block communication or taking next steps with confidence. Whether it's just you, or you with a loved one(s), I'd like to help you untie those knots and find beautiful movement. I bring an understanding of trauma, attachment wounds/styles, and neurobiology, as well as a value of social justice. I work exclusively online with clients across Canada.

I strongly believe in the power of a trusting therapeutic relationship in helping people to discover their internal strengths.
Currently accepting new clients. My aim is to provide a trusting, nonjudgmental space in which you feel safe enough to share your personal story. While there is an innate wisdom within all of us, our ability to see the way forward can become clouded when we are overwhelmed by tragedy or adversity. A deep exploration of one’s internal experience can often be freeing, and provide valuable insight into patterns of relating to the self, others, and the world around us. An attachment-based, client-centred orientation allows us to work collaboratively in drawing connections between your past experiences and your present situation.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Nanaimo relationship counsellor, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counselling in Nanaimo.
