Her Philosophy

Angela respects and values people for their unique qualities and strengths that they bring to the counselling relationship.  She believes that all individuals have an innate drive towards healing and wholeness and that in the face of challenging situations, people do their best to cope using the best skills that they know.  Angela’s goal of therapy is to empower individuals, couples and families to participate as co-counsellors who discover and build a personal tool-box of problem-solving skills/strategies and creative resources to increase strength, resiliency and greater life satisfaction.

Marriage & Family Therapy

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible -- the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family”.     V. Satir

1.      Angela helps family members to understand one anotherand their different perspectives, attitudes & behaviors.  Understanding various perspectives is supported through the supported practice of listening, empathy and curiosity.  Angela supports marital & family change through a combination of individual, marital & child/parent sessions; as well as, with the family as a whole.

2.      Couples & family members learn to value differenceswithin the family as they gain awareness of healthy connections.  All families have strengths and skills.  Angela provides support to identify and build upon existing strengths and gifts held by members and the system as a whole.

3.      Education to increase parental knowledge of normal child and youth development is provided to help build a framework to understand and manage child/youth behavior.  Angela helps families build a toolbox of strategiesthat foster connection, communication and laughter. The use of these tools increases confidence & resiliency that can be drawn upon during challenging and stressful periods that occur within the lifespan of all families.
