Couples are sometimes stuck in their cycle of communication where the "dance" has stopped and no one can move smoothly. Negative patterns have taken hold and both partners are caught in a rut. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand and experience where they have been caught in their cycle, where they no longer hear or understand their partner. With new insights and understanding they become able to hear the music again, join the flow and move ahead with new choices in a clearer channel of communication.

Have you been finding your relationship to be a source of frustration and pain rather than a place of safety and support? Do you find yourself locked into similar arguments with your partner again and again? Would you like to feel closer to or reconnect with your partner again? Do you feel as though you need to re-establish trust because trust has been broken in your relationship? There are many reasons why couples seek therapy. Whatever your reason for seeking support, couples therapy can be a powerful and meaningful way to strengthen trust and the emotional bond between two partners.

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist
301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7
Most of my practice is working with couples. I have over 30 years of experience dealing mostly with couples. Many people, including therapists, believe that couple counselling is synonymous with "double individual" counselling. Clients coming to my practice soon learn that there is a dynamic set up with a couple that is quite different than when they just list all of their respective issues, challenges and potential solutions. I teach them how to negotiate on every level of their daily lives together. I share with them techniques of how to avoid falling into the "blame and shame game". I have 25 years of experience as a divorce mediator and so I can teach couples conflict resolution.

Having a love hate relationship with your partner can be very confusing. You can't live without them, and are having a hard time living with them. You end up in a cycle that seems out of control, it may be one that you have seen in previous relationships. This cycle slowly starts tearing you apart. The relationship seems to be filled with pain rather than love. Understanding the cycle you engage in and recognizing it are the first steps towards healing the relationship. We will then create a new cycle that you can engage in and improve the relationship to where you want it to be.

Various locations in Ottawa, Ottawa, ON K2G 0G3
The single counsellor option is available as well as the CO-THERAPY MODEL: Two therapists - one man and one woman: a therapeutic square rather than the traditional triangle. This tends to provide a sense of equal representation in the therapeutic team and liberates each member of the couple in bringing his/her issues and positions forward. Each partner receives clinical attention and support as does the couple relationship.

Usually by the time couples come in they are in significant distress. My approach to couple counselling is built upon Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, which is cutting edge in this field. The goal is to change the climate in the relationship, the safety, the way the individuals experience themselves, and therefore what and how they share with each other. This type of change is enduring. To supplement EFT, I offer other tools which help couples implement changes at home.
