I use the Gottman method with couples and I use therapies such as EMDR, DBT and CBT to assist other clients in feeling empowered.
It's not just you. You're not alone! The last few years have been extra hard. Having a safe place to decompress, receive validation and learn new skills can make things easier. We all have the ability to heal ourselves, but any kind of therapy is hard work. I work with families experiencing relational issues and couples who need to learn or relearn how to work together. The end goal is different for each client, but we will work together to get you to a spot where you feel at ease. For those suffering with trauma or anxiety, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is offered as well.

I use an eclectic client-centred approach which might include counselling informed by CBT, DBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, the Gottman Method for Couples and trauma informed approaches.
I have worked extensively with teens, individuals and couples as they navigate various challenges including anxiety, depression, suicidality/self harm, relationship and interpersonal stressors, as well as complex trauma and PTSD. Some individuals are very aware of where they are struggling, which helps us to align quickly and start working together. Whereas others might be new to counselling and really want a trained clinician to help them to understand and make sense of their world and experiences in a safe, warm and supportive space. I offer a client centered approach and will meet you where you are at, wherever that might be.

Hi there. Looking for the right fit for a therapist may feel a bit overwhelming. I invite you to take a moment to inhale deeply and slowly exhale, releasing tension as you do. 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

On the good days, you are unsure if you really need any help. You think it will pass. But on the difficult days, you find yourself here. You are tired and overwhelmed. Your mood is low, and your patience is short. Your relationships feel fragile, and your resilience is waning. Adding one more to-do item to your list seems impossible. Maybe even indulgent. You can ignore your struggle, and maybe tomorrow will be a better day. Or, you can find yourself the support you deserve and know that it will be. You do not have to do this alone.

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.

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.
