In couple counseling I regard the clients both as two separate individuals as well as a unit. I am aware that they each bring their own fears and expectations to counseling. Together we focus on understanding the development of the problems and and the length of time these issues have been part of their relationship. Often the issues are related to lack or inappropriate communication. Using empathy and compassion and various therapeutic techniques I help the couple develop positive ways of dealing with each other in a safe environment. However, at times, we come to the conclusion that separation may be healthier for both and I help them through this very difficult process.

Couples often need a little support as they navigate the challenges that exist in every relationship. There are many complicating factors that impact the success of a relationship - children, finances, and different childhood experiences can all create a rollercoaster ride of emotions that can add confusion to the love that two people feel for one another. Learning how to communicate clearly, how to argue appropriately, and how to demonstrate appreciation and value for one another are the essential building blocks to a loving and intimate relationship that will last.

Registered Psychologist, Marital and Family Therapist

In T9E 7H8 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

When two people come together, their individual beliefs and expectations form the background of what could eventually become a committed relationship. Couples therapy at Karunia helps couples communicate effectively their personal stance to each other. From there the couple can work on their common goals and strategies to work together effectively in their daily setting. Are you frustrated with your partner's behaviour? Hurt by expectations in the relationship? Unappreciated by your spouse? We can work with you to clarify what is most helpful to you and how this can benefit you both as a couple.

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

I often work with couples who are struggling in an effort to develop effective communcation, express feelings appropriately, overcome infidelity, deal with parenting conflicts, address unresolved issues, establish more of a connection with one another, adjust to various life transitions (such as having a baby), and deal with day-to-day struggles (such as housework). I use a variety of techniques to address these difficulties, with the ultimate goal of establishing a sense of goodwill and connection, so that each partner has empathy and support for the other, and they can create a sense of being a true team as they navigate life together.

Registered Psychologist

In T8A 3X1 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

Men and women deserve love and happiness in their intimate relationships. It is possible to be loved in the way you desire. When I work with couples I always talk about love languages and how you can help your partner meet your love needs. I use a Gottman approach to couple counseling. My goal is to help people strengthen their relationship, build connection, learn effective conflict resolution skills and repair their relationship. Most of us do not learn important communication skills growing up, and so we need to learn them as adults, so that we can have happy, healthy and enduring relationships.

Sometimes we can lose hope in our relationships. Once this has happened, it can be very hard to stay motivated to invest in the relationship. What if... what if there was a version of reality where you are happy together? What if you could feel love for your partner again? What if you could feel loved by your partner again? What if it would require to learn a new skill? What if you didn't do this?

In a time and place where over 50% of marriages end in divorce, it is to be expected that couples need support in their relationships! Research indicates that couples often wait as long as seven years before seeking professional help. Don't delay, couples counselling can teach you new ways of communicating, so that you truly feel heard; can teach you ways to reconnect with your partner, and to stop replaying old arguments and other negative patterns.

In my work I am enabling couples to resolve disagreements, or agree to disagree, without becoming disconnected or abusive. Given that different couples might need different types of intervention, the mechanisms of change vary accordingly. Therefore, in order to achieve change and enable growth, I am using an integrative approach, which I tailor to suit the needs, experiences, and personal circumstances of the couple.

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

In T8A 3M7 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

I have a significant caseload of relationship therapy clients. I am comfortable with essentially any type of relationship taking place between consenting adults. I accept the orientation(s) of the parties to a relationship, and am as a rule able to come from there. If I have a bias, it is to preserve the being of the relationship, the "we" that emerges when one and another form a bond. My bias notwithstanding, I am able to assist parties to a relationship to achieve a more peaceful separation/termination when that is their choice.

It is within our relationships that we experience the most joy and the most pain. Most relationships begin with a deep connection and people anticipate a future that continues to be passionate and fulfilling. It is inevitable, however, that disappointments and misunderstandings arise. Learning to communicate in an effective way that bridges differences and leads to respect and understanding are essential to a happy relationship.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

I define a couple as any two people involved in ongoing interaction. When things go wrong the relationship is unfulfilling and may be hurtful to the participants. All too often things go wrong when the individuals focus on what they want from each other and they become enmeshed in a power struggle. In couples therapy there are no “rules of engagement” but there are skills which can be developed to make the relationship mutually rewarding and personally empowering.

Relationships need care and attention. When our relationship goes off the rails, it is hard to feel connected to feelings of joy, love, and enthusiasm. Each individual in a partnership contributes to the relationship’s health. When you come for couples counselling support, I work for your relationship, and address any individual behaviours that undermine its well-being. I help you find ways to clarify issues, communicate effectively and reconnect.

The duty and function of a relationship counselor or couple's therapist is to listen, respect, understand and facilitate better functioning between those involved. The basic principles for a counselor include: Provide a confidential dialogue which normalizes feelings; to enable each person to be heard and to hear themselves; provide a mirror with expertise to reflect the relationship's difficulties and the potential and direction for change; empower the relationship to take control of its own destiny and make vital decisions; deliver relevant and appropriate information; changes the view of the relationship; and Improve communication.

Love is the most mysterious of truths; therefore, to discover the mystery of love one has to acquaint themselves with truth. Relationships in general, but love relationships in particular (because of the greater physical proximity, psychological intimacy, and emotional intensity) will inevitably reveal you back to you. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that the purpose of relationships is to find out who you are, but the possibility of ever coming in contact with you and seeing you for what you are would be inexistent without relationships. This is because the way we first come to recognize ourselves is through the other.

The context of a relationship brings much more information to the surface then if we were alone. This can be very challenging and counseling can help sort this out. Couples counseling provides the opportunity to examine things as they play out within the couple. This arrangement can leads us to see first hand the strengths we have to connect with others. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of couples issues and look forward to working with you.

In T5N 1R7 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

In a relationship, each member is responsible for an equal share of the dynamic. In a family, that means it splits between the amount of people, and in a couple it’s 50% created by each partner. This 50% is the result of the individual’s needs- both functional and dysfunctional. Functional needs relate to biological drives, culture, relationship goals, values, etc. Dysfunctional needs come from limiting beliefs, which are internalized in our childhood. They create needs like: the need to be in control, or the need to protect oneself. The needs, whether functional or dysfunctional, can balance each other out, creating a “stabilizer” or they can become unmet needs.

Grow as an individual and as a couple in couples counselling. Learn how to understand each other's emotional "hot buttons" and communicate loving support to deepen connection. Each of us has our leftovers from previous relationships that have an impact on our desire for closeness with our partners. You and your partner can learn to ask clearly for what you need, and understand how each other feels with mindful attention to your own feelings and desires.

Working with couples is a particular love of mine. Being in a relationship that continuously grows and evolves I know the value of a good relationship. When it does not thrive it can be miserable. Having an objective outsider who is skilled in pointing out negative patterns and helping you work through hurts and grievances can often save a relationship that appeared doomed. We always need to be able to express our wants and needs and feel heard and equally we need to do the same for our partners. The latter is not always so easy but that can be where the gold is! Of course we often feel its a one way street and then different strategies have to be applied.
