Registered Psychotherapist

26 River Valley Drive, Kitchener, Ontario N2C 2V6 | 519-716-9092

Couples who come for counseling often report poor communication as the reason for the breakdown in their relationship. However, poor communication is typically an indication of a deeper, underlying issue that affects healthy communication. Unresolved hurts between people create rifts. When there is a rift in the relationship, communication can become defensive and reactive which results with intimacy and trust disappearing. I bring both expertise and experience into our counseling session.  I am hopeful for relationships. I believe when both partners are committed to change; intimacy, trust and love can again thrive.

Can your relationship be saved? Couple relationships offer excitement, comfort, amazing growth opportunities as well as the risk of stress, pain and unhealthy coping. If you find yourself lately experiencing the down side of your relationship, LISTEN AND ACT on this red flag. It's so sad when people sense the urgency of their difficulties but wait so long to seek help. LISTEN TO YOURSELF and/ or to your partner who requests counselling. It means that they care. (Please be warned that I won't take sides.) Call me at 519-632-7444 to schedule a free 20 minute session so that you may better decide whether we share "a good fit" A healthier, happier way of life is waiting for you.

Despite whatever level on the continuum of "issues" you are struggling through, I believe I can help you and your partner get things back on track, or make other decisions that benefit your future. You will feel respected as I value both parties contributions about the present state of the relationship. I like to explore each parties experience growing up, and how that contributes to their understanding of their relationship today and the struggles they are facing. Through exploration or your stories, how you communicate, how you deal with conflict, and what your values and needs are in a relationship, etc. we will discover and create a new plan moving forward in your relationship.

Karen Maud Coca, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker & Psychotherapist

151 Charles Street, Kitchener, Ontario N2G 1H6 | 2263365787

At times we lose touch with our own identities and get caught on the role we are expected to perform, or that we tell ourselves we "should" be performing. I work with couples to re-connect with themselves individually, while also re-connecting with each other. Creating strong and healthy bonds is a must in a relationship. This includes understanding each others values and respecting them. A relationship where communication and boundaries flourish can naturally lead to feeling more in tune with one another.

No relationship is without obstacles. Life’s daily challenges can strain our partnerships, leaving us feeling frustrated and misunderstood. Inviting the perspective of both partners, couples counselling can help to restore communication and intimacy. Making the decision to begin couples counselling can feel like a big step. It involves both members admitting that things are not perfect in their partnership, which can be extremely difficult and scary. At Exhale Therapy, we provide a safe space for both you and your partner to be open and honest with each other. Our counsellors can equip you with tools that will help you connect, hear, and understand each other much better.

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

My practice has included extensive couples counselling where partners have found their way to healthier communication, trust and intimacy. To move away from blaming, score keeping and 'right' fighting. I invite couples to look at what each one is responsible for in the conflict and the relationship. Once couples are able to put their issues on the table and agree to negotiate them, there is room for movement and healing. I've seen couples re-connect, re-commit and re-verse the damaging communication and feelings from the past.

Not all couples are alike and therefore should not be treated the same. The Gottman couple therapy approach includes a thorough researched based assessment on your relationship that helps to target the specific issues that need to be addressed, creating a tailored couple therapy treatment approach. This helps to reduce wasted time on trying to pinpoint the source of the problems in the relationship. Once the assessment is completed, research-based interventions and communication skills are used and taught so that couples walk away with a greater understanding of their relationship and how to communicate with one another to create a deeper sense of connection and closeness.

28 Weber Street West, Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario N2H 3Z2 | 519-914-5026

Couples Counselling Most relationships will become strained at some point and will begin producing maladaptive patterns. Relationship problems are rooted in our distorted egos, insecure attachment, emotional immaturity etc., which create to the many issues that develop for couples - infidelity, financial stress, poor communication, ill health, sexual divergence, household responsibility conflicts, addictions, etc., .... or just simply growing apart. Relationships can often be restored if help is sought soon enough. A counsellor can help reorient perceptions and emotions (how we look at a situation and how we feel about it) and assist the couple in adopting conscious structural changes.

David Holan, MA

Counsellor & Life Coach

Available for Online Therapy

My primary specialty area is in working with couples and relationships. It is my belief that the relationship I have with myself is the best predictor of every other relationship I will have. So doing couples' work is also, in some ways, doing individual work. Your relationship does not exist within you, or within your partner, but is a separate entity that exists in what I call 'the space between.' If you tend the relationship and feed it positive energy, it will stay healthy and positive. So whether your relationship is in a difficult state, or you just want to make it better, contact me and we can address your goals. I work with hetero, same-sex and alternative lifestyle couples.

My Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey will allow you and your partner to compare your individual emotional needs in your relationship. You first must understand each other's emotional needs before you can dance in synchrony. Clients often are surprised to learn which emotional needs their partner rate as high or low priority, for example, conversation, admiration, affection, power-sharing, emotional closeness, and sexual intimacy. Excellent enrichment exercise for couples!

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

Being part of a couple can be the most exhilarating feeling in the world. Paradoxically, It can also be the most lonely experience when things are not going well. Working from an emotionally-focused perspective, I help couples understand attachment needs and how these unmet needs can create difficulties in their relationship. It really isn't about the housework, children, or sex, it is about the connection a couple has (or doesn't have).

Working with couples is actually working with two individuals. Each person brings their own unique personality to the couple relationship. Where those personalities clash, and a clash is inevitable, there is an opportunity to learn something about the Self. Why is it that I react the way I do to this aspect of my partner? Do I like this about my Self? Would I like to be able to respond rather than react? Moving into this territory is moving into the land of personal growth which is possible through being in a relationship. It's moving to a place where you have the opportunity to become the best person you can be and to move beyond the personality you inherited through your history.
