At times, many of us contend with emotions and suffering that are overwhelmingly painful, disheartening and difficult to bear, often as a result of unique stressors and events. I work with adults, adolescents, families and step-families using Emotionally Focused Therapy, EMDR, interpersonal psychotherapy, and DBT/CBT within neuroscience and attachment frameworks. I encouraged clients to access inner strengths and free their capacity for growth. Whether you or a family member experience depression, anxiety, marital distress or difficulties with peers, you deserve support in a confidential, accepting, safe and caring environment.

My approach is collaborative and individual or family therapy sessions will help you explore important issues.
We all go through difficult times that need some assistance. Maybe you are not feeling as confident as you used to be because something has changed in your life, or maybe because things have stayed the same. You could be caught up in difficult thoughts and emotions that make it difficult to work towards the things you value. I have spent years assisting people with anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, life changes, chronic health issues, emotional eating, school and work-related stress. I also assist those struggling with family issues, infertility, third-party reproduction, adoption, postpartum support.

Family Therapy Counsellors
If you're looking for family therapy in Oakville or for an Oakville family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Oakville using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counselling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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.
