Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

11 Basin Court (In Arlington Woods), Nepean, Ontario K2H 8P2 | 613-726-3636

Most of my practice is working with couples. I have over 30 years of experience dealing mostly with couples. Many people, including therapists, believe that couple counselling is synonymous with "double individual" counselling. Clients coming to my practice soon learn that there is a dynamic set up with a couple that is quite different than when they just list all of their respective issues, challenges and potential solutions. I teach them how to negotiate on every level of their daily lives together. I share with them techniques of how to avoid falling into the "blame and shame game". I have 25 years of experience as a divorce mediator and so I can teach couples conflict resolution.

Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

99 Kakulu Rd, Kanata, Ontario K2L 3C8 | (613) 402-9002

In couples counselling, unhealthy or unhelpful relationship issues, such as anger, conflict, or communication issues can be explored. In this exploration, patterns of interaction are revealed and discussed. The first step for minimizing the unhealthy or unhelpful patterns of interaction is to identify them, understand them, and understand what triggers them. Couples counselling will examine these triggers and past experiences that have encouraged these triggers to develop.

I support one individual in a relationship and do not communicate directly with the other individual unless I receive permission to do so. This approach to couples counselling is especially helpful in situations where one person is thinking of leaving the relationship or in cases where emotional, verbal or more obvious forms of abuse may be happening. I can support you to take a step back, get clear on what you would like for yourself and the relationship, and take action to get where you want to be.

Online Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Our most intimate relationships are where we are often challenged the most to grow. Much of my work with couples is helping each person feel entitled to their feelings and feel able to advocate for their needs within the relationship. So often we have expectations of how our partner or spouse is supposed to be, how we are supposed to be with them and there are unspoken expectations to navigate between us. These assumptions can easily lead to very destructive patterns that we act out with the person we want to feel the closest to. Our work is to strengthen ourselves from the inside out so that we can meet our partner "full of ourselves" and then find ways to be together that are a win win!

Registered individual, Couple & Family Relationship Therapist

300 March Road, Kanata, Ontario K2K 2E2 | 613 832-3040

Couples today have multiple challenges they must address to retain the safety and comfort of a trusting, intimate and caring relationship. With the pressures and time constraints of our dual career world, we can lose connection with each other. Couples therapy / coaching requires each partner to examine their own needs and dreams, to listen without judgement to their partner, and to take action that supports both their needs. We do this together with goal setting, planning and action that brings laughter and security back into your relationship, & solutions to specific relationship challenges. The process goal is to achieve a deeper connection that brings mutual respect and love for life.

Relationships are important to our well being.

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?

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

53 Shouldice Cresent, Kanata, Ontario K2L 1M8 | (613) 447-5041

In my work with couples I adhere to the philosophy that relationships are at the core of human experience. Research indicates that emotionally fulfilling relationships are integral components of mental and physical health, and that emotionally focused interventions have the power to establish and re-create supportive bonds among individuals. I am therefore dedicated to the understanding and enhancement of couple and family relationships through an emphasis on emotions and their interpersonal impact. I believe that all people can maximize their potential given a nurturing social environment, which I endeavour to foster in my work with clients.
