Secure connection to others is perhaps the most important aspect of our lives and it can be devastating when the bond between partners breaks down. I practise a form of couples therapy that directly targets that bond, helping the couple to take control of what is happening in the relationship and to create the type of connection where they can both feel safe, valuable and loved.

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, Ontario K1H 5T7 | 613-733-1422

Couples are sometimes stuck in their cycle of communication where the "dance" has stopped and no one can move smoothly. Negative patterns have taken hold and both partners are caught in a rut. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand and experience where they have been caught in their cycle, where they no longer hear or understand their partner. With new insights and understanding they become able to hear the music again, join the flow and move ahead with new choices in a clearer channel of communication.

I work with couples in a variety of ways, depending on what the couple identifies as their priorities for work in therapy. As with my therapeutic approach in individual therapy, it's most important that both partners feel comfortable with me and feel safe to share their emotions and experiences. I offer a non-judgemental space in which couples can explore the complex feelings, patterns of behaviour, and strengths they share together as a couple. This process ultimately leads to couples achieving greater understanding, mutual compassion, deeper intimacy and informed choices.

Residential Addiction Program

Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario K0A 1K0 | 1-613-518-8131

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction. The frustrated partners of addicts often despair when communication efforts and sincere efforts to help fail. It is critical for addicts to receive the rehabilitation they need, but without counseling for their spouses and partners, the addict will not return home to a healthy environment. At Valiant Recovery, we offer couples counseling and individual counseling for the spouses and partners of clients who need help processing the impact of addiction, and who are ready to embrace change moving forward.

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.

The couple relationship is a very close and intimate bond between two partners. When hurdles arise within a couple relationship, it can be very beneficial to seek the professional support of a third party to offer a fresh, unbiased perspective. Counselling support aims to strength the connection between partners while inviting each member to be curious about recurring patterns and behaviours in their lives together.

278 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, Ontario K2P 1V4 | 1-613-238-2222

Couple Counselling Therapy involves learning how to do the following and much more: love your partner and be loved in return, reconnect with that person you fell in love with, communicate and be heard, transcend the spoken words to truly understand the meaning and importance of your partner's communication. This process necessitates a vision that neither partner is right or wrong and that the other has very different needs that we will probably not understand but that we will need to make central.

It is my privilege to have been helping couples of all manner work through relationship difficulties. As an attachment therapist informed by Sue Johnson Phd, and John Gottman Phd., Couples enter into goal directed, evidence based work toward improved attachment and friendship. Couples therapy is non judgement, supportive while also educational. Couples come to counselling looking for "skills", and reduced conflict. This is the focus while also seeking improved friendship and intimacy. It really is a privilege to work with couples and achieve these results.

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!

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.

Much of life satisfaction depends on our ability to create and maintain meaningful and mutually satisfying relationships. Our attachments to partners can be a great source of love, comfort, soothing, and pleasure. Emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy together form the cornerstone of couple bonds. The CFIR couple therapist will create safety in the therapeutic environment. He or she will not ‘side’ with any one partner, but instead will explore how emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy has been blocked and how each member in the couple inadvertently may be contributing to the disconnection.

I have had 5 years of training in Emotionally Focused Therapy an Attachment based modal of therapy that has been shown to be highly effective with many couples. Helping couples understand the issues which are underneath most arguments. By learning about the 'Negative Cycle' clients learn to speak to each other about their attachment needs and to become a real 'team' as they go through life together. In some instances a Psycho-dynamic approach allows a couple to move forward more quickly. Each couple is assessed and the most effective model is used in resolving their issues.

The single counsellor option is available as well as the CO-THERAPY MODEL: Two therapists - one man and one woman: a therapeutic square rather than the traditional triangle. This tends to provide a sense of equal representation in the therapeutic team and liberates each member of the couple in bringing his/her issues and positions forward. Each partner receives clinical attention and support as does the couple relationship.

Couples can often feel disconnected and can have long standing patterns of interaction which feel like they can't move away from, no matter how hard they try. Couples work can help unlock this feeling of 'lock down' and help people understand the pain and fear under the behaviours -their own and their partner's. Through exploring together couples can heal old wounds and begin to feel safe, understood, connected, engaged, and fulfilled bringing vitality back to the relationship.

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).

The level of challenge a couple deals with in a relationship, and the ability that each couple has to overcome these hurdles depends on a number of factors. My goal is to help you both develop strategies in order to: better communicate; identify the direction you want to take in your lives as a couple; and most importantly, to grow together, as individuals in a relationship with each other, on your journey through life!
