Relationships are a fundamental part of our lives and well-being. It is important to understand how to be healthy and effective in our individual contributions to a relationship. Many relationships consist of conflict and misunderstanding. One of the most important goals of relationship counselling is to establish healthy boundaries and guidelines. It is important to acknowledge that relationship counselling is not limited to partner or marriage counselling. It often also refers to therapy for: family, friends, or work relationships.

Psychology is the science of behavior. Based on this maxim we have emphasized in our service tradition teaching others the knowledge required to help produce the necessary behaviors to live well. Because of this, our goals and objectives are directed towards achieving that the human being can live in tranquility, in peace with himself or herself, and in harmony, not only with his or her own emotionality, reason and conscience, but with his or her immediate environment, that is, the family, as well as with the surrounding and universal society. We believe that the basis for the logical and rational good social order consists basically in positively reinforcing the appropriate behaviors of other....

"The idea that one of the best things you can do for your child is to create a loving relationship with your partner is not sentimental ... it's a scientific fact" - Susan Johnson, Hold Me Tight. More and more we realize that love is not a total mystery and that it can be scientifically understood. I will help you recognize how you are connected to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is dependent on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to strengthen families is to build secure emotional connections, and for members to be emotionally open, attuned and responsive to each other.

I look forward to working with your family to facilitate open dialogue, understanding, inward introspection, and compassion.

Do you have trouble communicating with your kids, spouse, siblings, in-laws, or parents? If you are like most of us, you probably do! Families adopt certain rules for how people are to behave within the family, and more often than not, these rules contribute to unhealthy relationships and communication patterns. It is my job to help families understand and identify their dynamics, and work towards effective and healthy communication patters.

A family is a team. When one member suffers, the entire family suffers. If the baby doesn’t sleep, nobody sleeps. Because the voice and opinion of every family member is valued and respected, family therapy helps generate solutions to problems that your family may be experiencing. I can help your family understand the problems from different perspectives and help facilitate a conversation that allows each family member to share responsibility for solving the problem. I will present a wide variety of ideas that have worked for other families and help you cater them to your own family because every family is different. A family is a team; let me be your coach.

My approach to family therapy is learning to communicate more effectively by focusing on current issues & interactions. Conflict resolution amongst family members is reviewed & the emphasis is on understanding & empathy with the goal of negotiating realistic solutions so that current family problems can be resolved. You & family members will learn to become closer & deepen family ties as well as get through difficult & stressful situations. The family will learn to solve problems & express thoughts & emotions effectively. Exploring family roles & behavioural patterns is necessary to identify issues that trigger conflict. You will learn positive interactions & reduce maladaptive responses.

Therapy can provide a safe environment for families that seek to repair their relationships. The problems generally stem from a much earlier time, when it was hard for family members to understand the nature of their conflict. Each person often has felt hurt and misunderstood, and these feelings have perpetuated over time. My approach is to encourage dialogue between them to help them understand the dynamics that have prevented a fulfilling relationship. I also try to establish the positive intentions of the work they are about to do. Therapy is intended to give them insight into what went wrong and how to repair the relationship while working through the difficult feelings and mistrust.
