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.

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 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.

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.

Couples counselling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Couples counseling gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way. No matter the cause, distress in a relationship can create undue stress, tension, sadness, worry, fear and other problems. A bad relationship may lead to physical or psychological problems, such as depression. A bad relationship can also create problem on the job and affect other family members or even friendships. Couples counseling can help couples to strengthen their partnership and gain a better understanding of each other.

Registered Psychotherapist

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).

Relationships can be difficult to manage when there is a pile of problems. Couples therapy can improve communication and provide a safe environment to approach difficult topics. My practice is informed by The Gottman Method, the works of Dr. Brene Brown, and the Response Based Approach for those who are experiencing violence. I believe couples work can only be done when there is a space where all parties feel worthy and dignified.
