In the beginning, most relationships are exciting and fulfilling. Many people, however, report that over time those good relationships become strained and difficult. Through couples counselling, Jan helps people stop the "drift" that creeps into so many good relationships by helping couples rebuild the positive loving relationships they once had.
Fighting about kids, sex, money or household tasks can drain the fun out of being together. All couples experience problems from time to time but if they cannot overcome them resentments grow and partners stop communicating in a productive and loving way. As an experienced Kelowna couples counsellor, Jan can quickly determine the work that needs to be done to restore balance and harmony in a relationship.
People who have re-married often run into issues that come with blending families and step parenting. Keeping everyone happy, maintaining some degree of organization and remaining sensitive to the needs and demands of everyone is often a daunting and exhausting job. Jan can lend her expertise to these issues and help you find a better way to manage all the conflicting emotions and issues.
