In M4K 3K8 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

I have worked with couples for over 7 years. Very often we are attracted to our partner because they have the qualities we don't possess. And we LOVE those things about them! For a while anyway. After a period time, those qualities become the very things that drives us the most crazy. "Why can't you be more like me!", we think to ourselves (or say out loud!). When I work with couples, I explore how our partner holds the very thing we need in ourselves. I help couples find a better way to communicate, as they explore "the elephant in the room" in a safe environment. I provide feedback on what I notice, so they can find new awarenesses and new ways of being with the other.

The couple bond becomes the most important connection in adult life. This couple relationship fulfills and sustains us when it works well and can also be debilitating when it does not. Adult attachment will also be affected by childhood attachment experiences, often making the adult bond an interesting place for triggers and emotions as well as healing and a soft place to land. My work with couples involves re-discovering the reasons for choosing each other, determining what is causing their difficulties and their willingness to restore the relationship. Important tools I use to do this is uncovering emotions, beliefs and assumptions and improving emotional communication and intimacy.

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.

Therapy with couples is amongst the most rewarding aspects of my work as a therapist. Not much gives me greater pleasure than helping couples develop a deeper understanding of both their situation and of one another that leads to a more meaningful and enjoyable shared life. In my experience, couples can make incredible progress when both parties are motivated to improve the quality of their relationship and learn to love one another in healthier, more fulfilling ways.

In M4K 1P6 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

Being in an intimate relationship takes work. It is the relationship in which the highest peaks of both joy and pain can be found. I assist couples in working through the challenges to develop a deeper level of understanding, compassion and connection. My approach to working with couples is to create a safe holding environment in which couples can take risks to share their hopes for their relationship, hear each other and validate the feelings without judgment. I draw from a variety of treatment approaches including Relational Life Therapy.

Registered Psychotherapist

In M4K 1N8 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

When we run into problems in our intimate relationships, there is usually a negative pattern that has evolved. This can be painful and undermining to our connection with our partner. My first job is to help you identify and understand this pattern. Then, I will help each of you to unpack the feelings and beliefs underlying it. In the safety of my office, I will help you learn to communicate on a more intimate level. In this way, you can begin to disarm the triggers that lead to misunderstandings. Once again, you will feel you are there for one another. And you will feel a renewed sense of security in the life you share together.

Our early experiences as children shape some of our attitudes and beliefs towards being in a relationship. Sometimes this modelling can help us in our romantic relationships, other times it can get in the way. Couples counselling can help you both recognize patterns, enhance communications techniques, and find ways to better relate to each other in warm, caring ways. Remember, it takes two to tango.

In L4J 7Z9 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

Over 60 per cent of my work is couples therapy. I believe that couples bring in unresolved issues from their families which interfere with their relationship. I always see both people involved in the problem. In cases of affairs I try to understand what needs were not being met in the marriage and why the person could not communicate this to their partner. I like working with couples and the results have been very good.

I help clients understand the negative interactional cycles that they find themselves in. After and during this movement towards understanding, we get at the underlying emotions and attachment needs that are so critical to having a safe-haven relationship with one's partner. The goal is to be safe, secure, understood and compassionately held in a love relationship.

In M6S 1N6 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

In working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. This approach looks at the cycle or emotional dance that occurs within a couple relationship and it seeks to understand how one partner's emotions fuel their behaviors or coping mechanisms, which impact the other partners emotions and so on. Often couples get stuck in an emotional dance of disconnection which becomes polarizing as they each continue to push the other away. Couples often end up in my office once the disconnection has resulted in an affair which has been caught or some other attachment injury. Hope is found once the dance is understood. This initial deescalation can happen in as little as 1-2 sessions.

Couples benefit from working on communication, on practicing healthy skills, on unpacking the ways in which personal issues and triggers are interfering with active listening and healthy partnership. Clients benefit from being able to express their needs and feelings, from learning how to be assertive, and from witnessing that they are being heard, both by the therapist and their partner. Finding compromise without losing oneself, setting personal goals as well as relationship goals, learning to nurture oneself, as well as the relationship, are all benefits of therapy. Examining co-dependent patterns can lead to opportunities for growth. The therapist models respectful relating.

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.

Psychologist

In M6A 2A1 - Nearby to Oak Ridges.

I use a variety of strategies to help people learn how to nurture and maintain enduring relationships. Using EFT (Emotional Focused Therapy for Couples), along with energetic, cognitive and behavioral strategies, I help people feel, think and act in ways that are most conducive to happiness and harmony in their intimate lives. Often it is more important to repair the process of communication than it is to solve any one issue. Once partners learn how to take care of each other's sensitivities and vulnerabilities, learning to respect rather than change the person they are with, it becomes easier to solve problems and resolve issues.
