Couples or marriage counselling enables the relationship to become restored, strong emotionally and work through any issues that have caused the relationship to be stressed or destroyed. Working through these issues must be a joint effort to gain the benefits of counselling. Separation, divorce and family issues can be approached in couples or marriage counselling.

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).

I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, an approach that involves exploring the attachment/bonding between two people and how they navigate and communicate their need for each other, especially following a disconnect of some kind. I approach difficulties in a relationship as a "couple" issue and help couples identify where and how they get into difficulty, what they are each doing that fuels their disconnect and keeps them stuck and help them find ways out of their disconnect to a place of greater connection and relationship satisfaction.

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.

235 Lakeshore Road East, Oakville, Ontario L6J 1H7 | 289-837-3227

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.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist Online

Available for Online Therapy

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!
