I help couples by focusing on two goals: (1) Communicating constructively about issues; (2) Having a strong relationship friendship. I help couples achieve these goals by giving them skills from Gottman's Sound Relationship House Model and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I am trained in Gottman's model and am certified in CBT.

Carissa Muth, BSW, M.A. (Honours), RPsych

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Communication is not merely talking to one another. It involves empathy, attunement, and listening, which can be difficult for many to master. It also requires awareness of each person's triggers and expectations and what might make them defensive. During couples counselling, I facilitate healthy communication between each partner by teaching skills and guiding each partner to express not just their primary emotions but their deeper feelings. I will not pick sides in the relationship but will keep the relationship as my client with the goal of restoration.

Inspire Wellness Therapy, M.A

Registered Psychologist/Registered Clinical Counsellor

In T2Z 3W9 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Is your relationship lacking intimacy or connection? Do you feel more like roommates than partners? Are you lacking the trust to communicate your true feelings? If yes to the above, we can help you open up the doors to a healthy and more fulfilling relationship no matter what stage in the relationship you are at. We offer creative strategies to increase your connection and rekindle your love for one another through the Gottman approach. We also give your relationship an environment where your thoughts can be heard. The biggest challenge we see in couples is the missing link in validating one another while also being able to disagree. We can help develop this skill!

Kevin Fleming, Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Dr. Val helps couples appreciate what they've got that's going well, and do more of that, but also, what's pulling couples apart? How realistic are the childhood dreams you had for expecting a knight in shining armour or a princess so divine. Dr. Val helps couples to love the unlovable, realize that the human race is fallible, define for themselves what is really love and how they can communicate that to their partner and why it's worth the effort.

Glenn Rau, M.Ed., R Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Relationships can be measured on two levels: stability and satisfaction. Sometimes the first goal is to stabilize the relationship (like after an affair). But most of us want more than just stability: we actually want to get along with and enjoy our partner. Fortunately, there has been a lot of relationship research that points the way to the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to achieve this. I love working with couples, and seeing their dynamics improve. I know that things can get pretty bad at times, and you can feel like your relationship is spinning out of control in a negative way. It may take some time, but improvements are genuinely possible. I've worked with very young ....

Maureen Theberge, MACP
Couples Counsellor

Maureen Theberge, MACP

Registered Psychologist

In T3G 0B4 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

I offer counselling to couples who have experienced a loss and/or are facing transition. The loss of a child, family member, or friend can create unexpected stress on a relationship. Moving to a new city or country can mean the loss of a couple's supportive network. Job loss or retirement changes the dynamics of a couple which creates unique challenges. Transitioning to children moving away is another stage in a relationship which can introduce unexpected stress. I help couples mourn their losses and navigate transitions to create new meaning in their lives and in their relationship.

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Couple therapy (or relationship therapy) is a related and different process. It may differ from relationship counseling in duration. Short term counseling may be between 1 to 3 sessions whereas long term couples therapy may be between 12 and 24 sessions. An exception is brief or solution focused couples therapy. In add....

Couples Counsellor

Leanne Frederick, BSc, MC, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Two people's life experiences are brought into a relationship: the good, the bad, and the ugly. These unique experiences are often not part of their dialogue as they are personal, emotional and bring out vulnerabilities and fears. Still, they are often at the core of the cause of distress in the relationship. The goal of therapy is to help the couple understand why there is this negative drama in their relationship, help them see the triggers of disconnection, and validate that these stressors make sense as to why they get stuck. Through this process, the relationship can get unstuck and become more secure, be mutually accessible, and positively engaged.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction.

At Valiant Recovery, we offer couples counseling and individual counseling for the spouses and partners of clients who need help processing the impact of addiction, and who are ready to embrace change moving forward.
