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.

As a trained Marriage & Family Therapist, I see many couples each week. If two people are motivated to make changes, I have many tools to help you achieve greater joy and satisfaction in your relationship. I work in a way that helps you experience change in session, rather than just talking about it. Why settle for a mediocre or conflictual relationship when you could have so much more?

As a relationship progresses, it is important to recognize that intimacy ebbs and flows. It is not a constant, and requires work on behalf of both partners. When couples are together for extended periods of time, they will undoubtedly go through various personal and emotional changes. In these times of uncertainty, partnerships may benefit from discussing intimacy related issues with a professional to help them understand the changes their relationship is undergoing.

I specialize in helping couples to have a greater sense of intimacy and improve their communication. In relationships people often hold on to past resentments, which can erode the quality of happiness in a couples relationship. I can help couples communicate so that the resentments are lifted and individuals begin to connect again in a meaningful way.

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!

Couples argue because their underlying needs are not met. Usually, couples in distress do not have the tools to effectively communicate their needs and/or to receive what the other is attempting to say. This can result in frustration and anger towards one another, which can lead to disconnection. I offer practical tools and strategies to help decode the messages of the other and to more effectively get your needs met in a more productive and effective way through role playing, assigned tasks and homework as well as on the spot, in-session training. I also recommend readings and books that couples can work on at home, in order to deepen their knowledge and to advance the process.

What is love? More than anything else, love forms an emotional bond where the connection leaves you both feeling that you have someone that you can trust and depend on. How do you get this? Open and transparent conversations and the common goal of a sacred and intimate relationship are foundational. I will guide you in healthy communication, rebuilding trust, solving difficult problems and setting goals for a lasting relationship.

Eglinton and Kipling (two minutes east of Highway 427), Etobicoke, Ontario M9R 1Y4 | (416) 487-9129

My approach is to help people recognize that relationships are two-sided and understand how each individual contributes to the couple’s dynamic. With that understanding, we work toward reaching a win-win situation, aiming to restore the satisfaction of the relationship. Together, we create a safe space for you to grow past the areas of “stuckness” -- that is, the old patterns that are learned when we are young and are brought to our current relationships. This is true for all of us. Therapy enables us to form new and healthy attachment patterns that are nourishing and nurturing, providing opportunities for new growth and satisfaction.

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?
