Do you long for friendship and belonging, but fear closeness? Do you get attached quickly but things don’t turn out the way you had hoped? Do you find yourself repeating patterns that you want to change, but are unsure of how, or where, to begin? You describe yourself as a giver but feel upset and disappointed when others don’t give back. You try to be the best version of yourself, but you’re exhausted. Experiences like these can leave us feeling unsafe. We feel lost and alone, desperately wanting change but not sure what steps to take.

Parenting can be hard. Social media, gaming, peer dynamics, school and mental health diagnoses impact children and teens which can lead to challenging behaviours that are difficult for parents to understand and respond to. At the same time, today's parents are dealing with their own life stressors (work, finances, relationships and mental health concerns) that can further challenge positive family functioning. Thriving Families Counselling provides support to parents and their children in achieving personal wellness goals and helps to foster positive change and understanding in the family as a whole.

As your therapist I believe you are the only expert about yourself and your life. I view therapy as a co-active partnership where the client and the therapist work together towards the goals the client has. This does not mean that I cannot provide guidance and suggestions about what might be helpful. It means that whether you decide to integrate and apply my suggestions is totally up to you. Therapy is ultimately about you and your individual needs and what you hope to achieve. I see my role as supporting you in exploring different ways of coping and achieving your potential.

"I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to begin to understand your own story." I have dedicated my life to build a practice where people can come to a place of peace, where you feel comfortable and safe to unburden yourself about the most intimate and personal aspects of your life without the fear of being judged or shamed. This process allows you to shed the layers that keep you going in the same cycles and help you start a new and more fulfilling chapter in your life. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

People come to therapy with the hope of enhancing their life story in a meaningful way, yet many find themselves held back from realizing this hope due to painful emotions, relationship problems, and trauma. Psychotherapy can be the chapter in a person’s life where stuck circumstances finally start to change. Psychotherapy can be the chapter where a person grieves their losses, confronts their deepest fears, heals deep-seated wounds, and finds within themselves the courage and strength to go forward with greater confidence, joy, and peace.

You're not sure when it happened but all of a sudden you don't recognize the person sleeping next to you. It's frightening and heartbreaking to think that this could be the end of your relationship. Maybe it started after the kids were born or maybe you're wondering if you're not as compatible as you thought. There's this distance between you that can no longer be ignored. You've become simple roommates but you want so much more from your relationship.

Family / Marital Counsellors
Therapists in Kitchener using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counselling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
