Announcement icon A number of measures are in place in order to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus. Please view these at www.shorecounselling.ca.
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.

All relationships go through difficulties. This is normal. Sometimes people need assistance to help them through their transitions. The good part: As a result of making the changes they end up enjoying better relationships and lives. See free tips at www.shorecounselling.ca.
Relationship counselling is a specialty most therapists lack. If you wish a healthy productive and loving relationship then choose wisely. The results will make your effort and money well worth it.
