We all hit a bump in the road from time to time and perhaps you've hit that bump. You might find yourself experiencing increased levels of stress or finding yourself constantly overthinking. Maybe your relationship is feeling strained; leaving you feeling alone, exhausted, and confused. Perhaps you have been interacting with your partner through overly intense or minimized emotions, triggered to react rather than stimulated to respond, stuck in what feels like a never-ending cycle of suffering and conflict. Maybe you have been feeling strongly conflicted, like different parts of yourself want different things or opposing beliefs.

Imagine... a space where you can go to share what needs to be heard. feel your way through complex emotions, process the blocks that hold you back and learn healthy ways of coping. Here, you will be supported as you lean into yourself. " Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." -Rumi

As a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer counselling services to adult clients, on an individual basis or as a couple. There are many different concerns that I can help clients process, including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, women's issues, and life transitions. There are no pre-requisites to counselling; I will work to meet clients where they are at on their journey and help them process from there. Depending on the concerns, I have a strong network of resources (both community and other professionals) that we can access if necessary.
As a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer counselling services to adult clients, on an individual basis or as a couple. There are many different concerns that I can help clients process, including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, women's issues, and life transitions. There are no pre-requisites to counselling; I will work to meet clients where they are at on their journey and help them process from there. Depending on the concerns, I have a strong network of resources (both community and other professionals) that we can access if necessary.

Gottman Method Counsellors

How does the Gottman method work?

One of the core doctrines of the Gottman method is that negative emotions hurt relationships about five times more than positive emotions help them. Thus, couples require five times more positive interactions than negative interactions with each other. The therapist will guide clients on how to improve communication and understanding of each other to manage conflict and have their emotional needs met. The therapist will also advise couples on how to repair relations with each other when conflict arises, and therefore avoid lasting damage.

Is the Gottman method evidence-based?

Yes, this method is an evidence-based approach to couples therapy. The method is based on more than 40 years of research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the psychologists who developed the method. The Gottmans analysed decades of data to draw conclusions about what types of interactions are likely to lead to specific results, and which interventions are most likely to lead to success. Studies have found that this approach leads to improvements in relationship satisfaction, intimacy, communication skills, and a lower rate of divorce.

How long does the Gottman method take?

The duration of treatment depends on the specific challenges clients face. Sessions are typically 60 to 90 minutes long, and an average course of treatment is around 10 sessions. In some cases, such as for couples dealing with a critical problem, the therapist will suggest an intensive course of treatment, with daily sessions over the first two to four days. Treatment is complete when the couple is satisfied and has met the goals they’ve set, and when the therapist believes they have the skills to continue on their own.

Is the Gottman method effective?

Through the Gottman method, couples can achieve changes that are real and sustainable. This treatment has been used for more than 40 years; the method is supported by empirical research, including randomised controlled trials that have demonstrated effectiveness in improving relationship outcomes for couples. Like any talk therapy, success or failure depends in large part on how committed the clients are to making positive changes and working toward results.
