Suite 225, Building B8 (Currie Barracks), 2526 Battleford Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta T3E 7J4 | 403-922-9966

Couples bring different sets of experiences into a relationship, with each person having their own needs and belief systems. When working with couples I allow each person's perspective to be heard. Communication and understanding are very important factors in a healthy relationship. Often when problems occur it is because communication breaks down - strengthening this aspect of the relationship as well as the connection between both partners are important focuses in my work with couples.

One of the biggest problems with marriage counselling today is that counsellors use methods that haven't been proven effective by research. Many marriage therapists have worked with systems of therapy that they thought would be effective, but unfortunately they are not. This can then leave couples feeling like 'its them' when really it's just the therapy. Both Jennifer Watts & Dr. Patrick Keelan use Gottman-based marital counselling, which is based on 40 years of research and is proven to yield results.

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Couples therapy can help address areas of difficulty such as communication, being able to relate and support one another, intimacy, demands of work and family, and understanding the differences between one another. By learning how to effectively address these areas a relationship or marriage can develop into a secured trust and friendship. Couples therapy is a unique way to talk to one another with the support of a counsellor. This type of mediation can help to support the process of change by redirecting old habits and creating new ways to embrace and support one another. Creating new patterns, allows for powerful outcomes.

Being in a loving, caring relationship is one of the most desired life experiences. My specialty is helping couples recapture or create this. See FAQ on my website. Early on in the infatuation phase communication seems so easy. You feel special and understood by your partner. Overtime you may begin to feel misunderstood, taken for granted or unable to reach your partner. Disagreements become frustrating and repetitive. It is hard to know what to do. The good news is that there are newer and powerful advances in couple therapy that offer ways for real communication to become normal. Please contact me to experience a change in your relationship. I am happy to help.

Throughout the course of any relationship there will be ups and downs. Some of these can be caused by your relationship, and others can be external and have a direct effect on your relationship.

Registered Psychologist

10 Discovery Ridge Close S.W. , Calgary, Alberta T3H 5X3 | 4032499337

Relational issues are central to the struggles and challenges that people bring to therapy. Many couples just want to enhance their relationship by learning better ways of coping with stress, increasing the intimacy that they experience with one another, or learning more effective communication skills. We often get stuck in patterns that no longer work for us and they get in the way of our relationships. Couples counseling can be a proactive way of changing the way you are doing relationship. Emotionally Focused Therapy is central to the work that we do in couples counseling. Identifying patterns of communication that no longer work and incorporating new ways is key.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction. The frustrated partners of addicts often despair when communication efforts and sincere efforts to help fail. It is critical for addicts to receive the rehabilitation they need, but without counseling for their spouses and partners, the addict will not return home to a healthy environment.

The challenges couples face, including difficulty communicating, conflict, trust issues, blended families and work rotations can precipitate significant relationship distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

Marcey Heschel, B.A., M.A.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

7370 Sierra Morena Boulevard SW, Calgary, Alberta T3H 3B8 | 587-356-6656

I will work with couples to discover breakdowns in communication and put in place the scaffolding necessary to create more healthy patterns. Partners must be willing to go deep and re-connect as friends first and foremost. Learning to listen is a key part of this work as we often listen only to respond or to argue. Listening to understand someone else is a skill that can transcend relationships. We don't need to agree with someone in order to understand where they are coming from. Often couples need a safe space and a mediator to be able to communicate effectively. Practice and commitment to result in incredible re-connection.
