Learn how to turn toward each other for connection rather than all the other "third things" we distract ourselves with like our phones, constant work, or even affairs.
Certified in EFT! We want intimacy and emotional connection but feel helpless to attain it. We want to be able to talk about our feelings and needs without getting caught up in the same frustrating arguments that go nowhere. We want so much more than feeling empty inside like roommates, just parents, or good friends who pay the bills together. We desire safety, security, and love. But we have so many doubts and questions: Am I too dependent? Too independent? Codependent? Am I too much or not enough? How can I build more balance within myself and in my relationship? How can I feel seen, heard, and fulfilled without creating conflict?

At certain times in our lives, we may feel like we are stuck. We struggle with maintaining our relationships at home or work, have difficulty meeting deadlines, or are unable to deal with the emotions of what is happening in the world. Counselling is a way to work through these issues. Here are a few other reasons why individuals and couples may seek counselling: reduced emotional and physical connection due to strained communication and increased conflict, infidelity, workplace conflict/bullying, recent separation or divorce, and an inability to find a suitable partner. These situations can cause immense pain.

Relationship troubles can be confusing and stressful, but couples counselling can help you and your partner heal from past emotional injuries, rebuild a sense of closeness, and kick start communication on gridlocked issues.

Are you feeling stuck in an older version of yourself that you know is ready to change? Do you live with the feeling that there's a truer version of "you" that's dying to come out? Are you held back by complicated relationships from your past, that seem to keep you in a holding pattern? Are you a couple stuck in a pattern that keeps you apart? Often we hit a place where we know we are ready for a transition, but we're just not sure what to do next. That's when therapy can be the most powerful. It's my greatest privilege to experience real connection with folks who are journeying towards a more meaningful, fulfilled, authentic life.

Navigating the perinatal period can be both exciting and challenging. During this time, it's common to experience a wide range of emotions and adjustments. From the anticipation of a new arrival to the physical and emotional changes, the perinatal period is a unique and transformative journey. As you prepare to welcome your child, it's important to prioritize your mental well-being. Understanding the psychological aspects of this phase can help in coping with the changes and seeking support when needed. I believe in building a lasting connection with a therapist to support you through this life-changing process.

I don't think mental health is something you achieve, but rather something you work your whole life trying to improve and maintain. There are so many reasons why you can't seem to be the best version of yourself - lack of motivation, negative past experiences, fears, and insecurities. And sometimes you just need a space separate from your world to help clarify and better understand yourself and what's standing in your way. My goal is to create an open, trusting, and vulnerable space where you can be your most authentic self - I believe that is the state where insight and change takes place.

Trauma, much like a splinter, embeds itself into a person and affects all aspects of life. My primary objective is to create a safe and compassionate therapeutic alliance which facilitates healing and growth. With Trauma, I truly believe that the body holds a great deal of the emotional weight, without us knowing. I witnessed severe difficulties in my community, and as an adult I have grieved many friends who kept their suffering a secret, often until it was too late. I truly believe that every individual innately harbors the right set of tools to achieve their personal goals and find their way to a meaningful, fulfilling life.

Infidelity Counsellors

How does therapy for infidelity work?

A skilled infidelity therapist will provide a safe space for clients to communicate their feelings and concerns. The goal is to be completely honest about what led to the cheating and how it has affected the entire family to prevent it from recurring in the future. The therapist will help the clients work on rebuilding mutual trust and respect and developing better communication and conflict-resolution skills. If the goal is to remain a couple, clients will learn the “danger signs” for their specific relationship, and they will make a renewed commitment to be faithful.

How long does therapy for infidelity take?

Recovery from infidelity can take time, and it can vary from person to person. Generally, a therapist will want to see the clients at least once a week for around six months. Then the sessions can be arranged as needed, depending on the clients’ individual needs. While therapy may end or shift to an as-needed basis, it can take up to two years or more for some clients to fully recover from infidelity.

How does therapy help the partner who was cheated on?

When a client discovers their partner’s infidelity, their trust in the relationship and in the life they had together may be shattered. They often experience mental health symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They don’t always want to stay in the relationship; they may feel ambivalent or may even want to leave. Therapy gives these clients a safe and healthy way to communicate all of their complicated emotions and concerns.

How does therapy help the partner who committed infidelity?

Infidelity often occurs when one or both partners’ emotional needs are not being met in the relationship. Therapy can help this client understand why they cheated and figure out how to address those unmet needs without resorting to infidelity in the future. This can lessen (but not entirely eliminate) the risk of repeated infidelity. Clients who cheat may also feel intense guilt about deceiving their partners, a sentiment that they can work through in therapy.
