Residential Addiction Program

Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3T3 | 604-998-4688

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. 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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

West 16th Ave and MacDonald, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 4M1 | 604-9169606

My role as a couple's therapist to create a safe haven, a calm bay, for you to make the repairs as needed, for you to re-embark on your journey together, stronger, more connected and back on the same team. The storminess of relationships is as natural as waves in the ocean, our ability to stay connect during the swells and crashing waves is what makes or breaks a marriage, not the wave itself. Our work together focuses on identifying our patterns and our partners patterns as we run for cover in the tumult of the wave. We then work on understanding, supporting and staying reconnected.

Even the best relationships face challenges. No relationship is conflict free. The couples who say they have good relationships are often the ones who find ways to communicate effectively, manage the inevitable conflicts, and feel like they are on the same team even when times are tough. Couples therapy can be an opportunity to take advantage of having a neutral space to explore your concerns and to learn about what other couples have done to build a strong relationship. Knowing how the research on couples can benefit your relationship, and ways that you can make a good relationship even better can be inspiring. A better relationship is possible with the right tools and knowledge.

Even the best of relationships can be challenging at times. That’s why couples counselling can make sense at any stage of a relationship. I work with heterosexual and LGBTQ couples to help them overcome various barriers in communication, emotional connection, parenting, or other issues. Often, small changes can snowball into big changes, so it’s worth addressing relationship issues as they arise and gaining tools to apply in your relationship for years to come. I am trained in the effective, research-driven Gottman Method Couples Therapy, which offers practical tools for creating improved connection and communication, and for addressing conflict and problems as they arise.

My couple counselling practice integrates the Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT).

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Registered Social Worker

206/217 - 1118 Homer St., Vancouver (Yaletown), British Columbia V6B 6L5 | 604-763-5340

Most couples get stuck at some point in their relationship. Intimacy is challenging for most us! I have a 2 pronged approach: I teach communication and conflict resolution skills as well as going deeper to discover the driving forces which lead to conflict. Conflict, once resolved, can lead to greater intimacy. The struggles you are facing now are the key to future deeper happiness and fulfillment and an opportunity for growth. I work with all types of couples.

Safe Haven Counselling, Claire De Boer, M.A.

Registered Therapeutic Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

My work with couples is founded in attachment theory. Our romantic relationships mimic our first relationships as infants. I will help you to understand your individual attachment styles (ways of relating) and how these may be currently working against you. With this new understanding of your partner, you can begin to work together as a team.

Devorah Peterson, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 1Y9 | 604-807-3900

The research around attachment tells us that having a sense of closeness with others is essential to our well-being. When partners feel a lack of connection, it can touch on past wounds that may even exacerbate the present difficulties. All couples go through challenging times, and it is important that both individuals remain allies, even through trouble. Skilled couples counselling can support this, and help the relationship become stronger than ever before. I draw from a number of approaches when working with couples, especially Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and communication approaches such as Non Violent Communication.

I welcome the opportunity to work with couples, whether married or not, LGBTQ, coupling or uncoupling. My goal is for partners to become more curious about themselves and about each other. We explore how unfinished business in one's family of origin and past trauma can affect emotional initmacy between partners. We will address ways of lessening emotional reactivity in order to work on relationship issues in a calm and respectful way.

Lynne Jones, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#205, 2902 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2J8 | 604-375-2446

I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method and Family Systems. Typically I meet with the couple together for the first session to get an understanding of the presenting problem from both perspectives. From there I meet with each person individually to take a brief relationship and family history and to form a relationship of trust and safety with each partner. The goal is to identify the negative cycle of communication between partners, identify underlying feelings and fears that drive this cycle and finally to create a more secure bond between the couple. I am very experienced with working with couples where one or both partners have experienced trauma

Aleksandra Dobric Stanosevic, MA, BSW, RSW

Registered Transactional Analysis Practitioner

7243 10th Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia V3N 2R7 | 16045055345

Most people choose a partner who reminds them in a way of their parent/caretaker with whom they had an unsatisfying relationship. So often they try to re-play the past relationship in the present, and the two different scenarios usually interlock, resulting in re-enactment of the past relations. So, instead of having someone who will help 'heal our wounds', we end up with somebody reinjuring us through defensive behaviors. I use a 'mirroring' technique: it consists of helping the couple to paraphrase each other and then offer attuned empathic responses. What this means is that partner B is invited to make an emphatic statement to A about what he/she imagines A is feeling.

Do you look at your partner and wonder what happened to the sense of connection and intimacy that you once enjoyed?

Couples counselling is an opportunity to re-connect and re-discover yourself and your partner. It is a safe forum to air difficult issues , develop skills for effective communication and enhance emotional and physical intimacy.

Relationships are hard at times. Even the most "perfect" couples have difficulties when their own issues get in the way of developing and maintaining a strong emotional bond or connection. Feeling vulnerable in our sense of security in a relationship can be scary, and having a safe space to openly discuss these fears and concerns can provide you with the support you need to courageously express your needs and emotions and grow together as a couple.

West Vancouver, British Columbia V7V 1B7 | 778-990-0823

Relationships are challenging. No question. But they're incredible teachers. They teach us where the places lie that need healing within each of us, that is, if we're willing to learn. If we are, then the relationship becomes a gift. Both of you win in this case. That doesn't necessarily make conflict any more enjoyable. It's not. But it's possible to work with it so you can identify the root of ongoing struggles, and find ways to put them to rest. Let me help you find purpose in your conflict(s), and find ways to move forward with significantly more clarity about where you'd like your relationship to go.

Relationships can become tense, defensive, and hostile. Sometimes, ruptures in trust occur that leave us questioning "should I still be with you?" When our relationships feel insecure, we react often through becoming critical/nagging, or shutting down and checking out. I practice a form of evidence-based couples therapy called Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT). Through EFT, we identify the negative cycle that has come to define your relationship, and work to repair this ruptured attachment bond, helping partners feel safer and freer around one another. This leads to improved intimacy, better communication, and a stronger emotional connection.

Kitsilano, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 2H1 | 604 620 2030

I have worked with couples in conflict for over 20 years. I can often identify and highlight the common ground even where negative communication patterns have buried it. Sometimes the members of a couple are afraid to share the positive feelings they have for each other for fear that they will "lose ground" in a struggle between them. In the counselling room, we create a safe space for each member to express their positive feelings and to ask for what they need. By identifying some stuck communication patterns, we can often open up paths to better communicating and healthier relationships.

Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 1H2 | 1-877-606-6161

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?

Loving, successful relationships need to be carefully and skillfully nurtured in the following five areas: Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Sexual, Financial. Couples who are ready to do ongoing work on their relationships are richly rewarded with a loving, meaningful and joyful life together. Committed relationships that have the possibility of morphing into long term relationships benefit greatly by being guided by the Gottman research on relationships as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

I help couples who are struggling with communication issues or who would like to gain a better understanding of each other. It is not uncommon to find your self stuck in a negative communication pattern which is leaving both parties frustrated and confused about how to make a constructive shift. Counselling can be helpful because it can help dislodge this logjam as well as teaching the couple new communication techniques that will enable the two to communicate without blame and judgment.

Couples counselling offers a safe environment in order to begin the process of making decisions for the future of your relationship. Many people often find it easier to say the things that they need to in front of a counsellor. Sometimes it is impossible to step back from the problems in the relationship with a view of moving forward when you are embroiled in turmoil. Having an objective helper in the room can allow each party to release themselves for healing and growth. Whether you have a specific problem or are just feeling disconnected, counselling can help.
