Our most intimate relationships are where we are often challenged the most to grow. Much of my work with couples is helping each person feel entitled to their feelings and feel able to advocate for their needs within the relationship. So often we have expectations of how our partner or spouse is supposed to be, how we are supposed to be with them and there are unspoken expectations to navigate between us. These assumptions can easily lead to very destructive patterns that we act out with the person we feel want to feel the closest to. Our work is to strengthen ourselves from the inside out so that we can meet our partner "full of ourselves" and then we can each advocate for our own needs.

Our relationships are often the most important things in our lives. When they’re going well, they bring us the joy and comfort of feeling connected to someone else on a deep level. But when you're going through a difficult time, relationships can cause a great deal of distress. If you're working through a rough patch in your relationship or marriage, you may be struggling with things such as communication, lack of connection, loss of affection or intimacy, lack of excitement, or feeling judged, misunderstood, rejected, or abandoned by your partner. If you're having some of these problems I can help you resolve your issues and move forward to start building a stronger, healthier relationship.

If your partner is open to attending counselling, even better!

My Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey will allow you and your partner to compare your individual emotional needs in your relationship. You first must understand each other's emotional needs before you can dance in synchrony. Clients often are surprised to learn which emotional needs their partner rate as high or low priority, for example, conversation, admiration, affection, power-sharing, emotional closeness, and sexual intimacy. Excellent enrichment exercise for couples!

Can your relationship be saved?
Couple relationships offer excitement, comfort, amazing growth opportunities as well as the risk of stress, pain and unhealthy coping. If you find yourself lately experiencing the down side of your relationship, LISTEN AND ACT on this red flag. It's so sad when people sense the urgency of their difficulties but wait so long to seek help. LISTEN TO YOURSELF and/ or to your partner who requests counselling. It means that they care.
(Please be warned that I won't take sides.)
Call me at 519-632-7444 to schedule a free 20 minute session so that you may better decide whether we share "a good fit"
A healthier, happier way of life is waiting for you.

Most relationships will become strained at some point and will begin producing maladaptive patterns. Relationship problems are rooted in our distorted egos, insecure attachment, emotional immaturity etc., which create to the many issues that develop for couples - infidelity, financial stress, poor communication, ill health, sexual divergence, household responsibility conflicts, addictions, etc., .... or just simply growing apart. Relationships can often be restored if help is sought soon enough. A counsellor can help reorient perceptions and emotions (how we look at a situation and how we feel about it) and assist the couple in adopting conscious structural changes.

In my practise I often work with couples on a variety of issues. Learning how to communicate effectively in a relationship is a must when a couple is trying to improve or save their relationship. Through therapy I help couples explore their own individual issues that may be contributing to the issues that brought them to therapy as well as sort through behaviours that each person may be exhibiting that is causing difficulty for one another.
