Have you and your partner lost your connection? Do you get stuck in repetitive cycles of blame and defensiveness? Do you wonder whether you partner is really there for you? That you matter? As a licensed Couple and Family Therapist and Psychotherapist, I look to the science of relationship to help. I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, which helps strengthen the emotional bond between partners by identifying, then changing, the destructive patterns of interaction that distance and divide. EFT is empirically validated and has the highest success rate of any couple therapy approach.

Does parenting seem harder than it should be? Do you often feel frustrated, guilty or like a "bad" parent? I use an attachment-based, developmentally friendly approach to help you get back in touch with your natural parenting intuition, so that you can address troubling behaviours from a place of understanding and connection.

I started Couple and Family Therapy Montreal because I wanted to extend my reach and help more people improve their relationships and their lives. I am highly selective about the therapists I hire. They are all relationship specialists and are passionate about what they do. We provide services in English, French and Spanish.

Isabel Melo's Groups

FREE Parenting Education and Support Group

This four-week group explores the challenges of parenting young children and helps parents understand their kids from the inside out. Although the focus is on toddlers and pre-schoolers, the material is relevant to children of all ages. The approach is attachment-based and rooted in developmental science. Attachment is not just about baby bonding! It enables children of all ages (and adults) to reach their full potential. Offered from 1 to 3 p.m. on four consecutive Thursdays, June 1 to 22, 2017. Newcomers only. And adults only as the site is not set up for children.
