If you are searching for a respectful and non-judgmental couples therapist, chances are you've been struggling for a while, just hoping things will get better on their own. My work is focused on couples conflict, relational trauma, and sexuality concerns. Whether the problem is infidelity or another traumatic event, lack of interest in sex, drifting apart in your relationship, or constant bickering and rehashing old arguments, the problems facing you as a couple can be overwhelming. It's natural to feel vulnerable and at the same time yearn for a safe place to talk it out with someone who can help.

Growth and transformation are largely based on an environment of compassion, safety, and collaboration. As a sexologist, I study human sexuality and sexual behaviour, and work with both individuals and couples to improve and address issues in their sex lives. The client-counsellor relationship is foundational, and I use an integrative, personalized approach with each client. I encourage clients to use their own understanding of experiences as a platform for healing, and together, we work to discover clarity, develop awareness, and create balance.

Your sex or relationship issues leave your life feeling like it is in turmoil even outside of the bedroom. You’ve tried to manage things on your own, but it’s a struggle, and you’re tired of struggling. Friends and family don’t understand, but it’s not like this is something you can talk to them about anyway. And even if there is that one friend that you can talk to, they don’t really know what to say.

My guiding principle is that the therapeutic process is deeply personal and unique and, therefore, must be tailored to the particular needs of each client to achieve their optimal health and wellness. With warmth, compassion and empathy, I help my clients to (re)discover their needs and strengths, and to pursue their desired well-being, with attention to issues related to the individual’s culture, trauma, gender, and circumstances. I practice from a humanistic, strengths-based, solution-focused model as well as a psychodynamic perspective. My approach is holistic, non-judgmental, anti-oppressive, authentic, nurturing, and eclectic.

In my view, all concerns are valuable and important to explore in therapy. In my practice, I assist clients in living fulfilling lives through discovering their authentic selves. I take a deep, compassionate, and non-judgemental interest in my clients inner experience, which includes their emotions, values, preferences, hopes, and dreams. Along with this, I pay close attention to my client's experience in the world, which may include societal and/or cultural attitudes, constraints, and prejudices.

The relationship between client and counsellor is imperative, so we have multiple practitioners with two locations so you can choose a therapist with whom you connect. Each of us endeavour to understand you and your experiences. W have a professional interest in how emotional regulation, identity and family dynamics can be factors which are both contributive and protective in the development of physical and mental health disorders. Our counselling styles can be described as empathic & solution-focused. We provide an environment free from judgement and believe honesty and acceptance are fundamental to personal growth and change.
