When couples start to grow apart, the reasons are usually quickly uncovered in therapy. Most often when one or both members of a couple have emotional needs that are not fully met (such as affection, financial, sexual, parenting, conversation, etc.), by their partner, the relationship will struggle. When we fall in love, we do so because of pleasure and we fall out of love because of pain. Once we learn how to reduce painful exchanges with our partner and get our needs met more effectively, love can grow again. You will learn the art of making more effective requests, lowering defensiveness, and improving how you listen and respond to each others needs. All types of couples are welcome.

Healthy relationships take commitment & work. I help couples increase emotional intimacy & connection. I help them stop unhelpful ways of interacting, achieve resolution to their unresolved conflicts, & take responsibility for their negative contributions to patterns. Couple relationships require re-committing ourselves to each other repeatedly throughout the length of our relationship. I will help you to learn to "turn towards" one another. I will also help you to eliminate the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, a phrase coined by couple researches John and Julie Gottman. Lastly, all couple relationships include pursuer-distancer patterns. I will help you identify these and work to stop them.

A committed relationship has its ups and downs. People change and life challenges can cause stress. I help couples explore their individual needs and what they want in a relationship. Sometimes a quiet hour to reconnect with your partner is all it takes to rekindle the love that brought you together. By exploring how a couple manages communication,conflict and division of tasks can also eliminate stress that interferes with intimacy. However, I also offer a safe place to process the end of relationships.

If you are coming to couples therapy, you and your partner have developed unhealthy patterns of relating. I will help you overcome your toxic communication patterns. If there has been an affair, I will help you recognize and acknowledge the deep emotional trauma it has caused. I will help you move from self-focus to partner-focus, and finally I will help move you from blame to understanding and empathy.

In our ‘significant other’ partnerships we want what we've always wanted: friend for life, passionate fulfillment, unconditional acceptance and love, loyalty, refuge from aloneness… So why do we stop ‘dating’ her/him? Getting this close to someone often has unexpected but predictable consequences: we eventually discover significant differences that ‘disturb’ us. How we interpret these then act toward one another accordingly, is key. However, this can be complicated. Good ‘Couple/Marital Therapy’ respects our complexity. And seeks to transform it from conflict into ‘richness and abundance’, (or end it gracefully). I bring many reliable methods/ resources to support couples desiring growth.

Just as J.F.K. said: "Ask not what you can get form your country, but what you can GIVE to your country", so is a couple's relationship. It is not what we can get from our partner, but how do we learn to love them and care for them in a way that makes us feel good, dignified and respectable. Love may not have much to do with this: do we LIKE each other? How do we co-create a safe heaven, a secure base in which we feel nurtured, liked, respected and protected, yet free to be who we really are? What kind of communication is most effective? Adela has been working with couples for over 10 years. Her creativity and passion for good, healthy satisfying relationships can be contagious,

It is known by many that relationships are not always easy to manage as they require dedication and commitment from each partner. I assist couples during counselling to learn skills to communicate more effectively, resolve their issues in a safe environment, strengthen their emotional connection, and learn strategies to preserve healthier relationships.

I offer both couple and family counselling to help you learn to better navigate healthy relationships and experience the intimacy you need in your life. I am able to offer both short-term skill-building, activity-based couple counselling as well as a longer-term, dynamic approach that generally lasts 5-8 months, depending on the couple and scheduling. I see heterosexual, gay and lesbian couples, as well partnerships involving people with non-binary gender presentations. I also see couples in open and polyamorous relationships.

Over time we fall into communication patterns with our partners. Those patterns become most evident when we are stressed, as we can default to ways of relating to each other that doesn't serve us or our relationship. Learning to build new patterns of communication, more supportive and more connected communication patterns, can promote a healthier relationship, a deeper sense of connection and joy, and a more hopeful future.

When a couple is struggling, they are often coming from very different places. They may find it impossible to understand each other's point of view. Tensions mount and arguing may increase. Counselling helps by creating a framework for understanding and communication. With this framework in place, problems can be properly claimed and addressed. I welcome couples that want to make their relationship healthier and stronger, as well as those in crisis.

Couple counselling is available for heterosexual and homosexual couples who may or may not be married. Many people are choosing to live together and are finding themselves having relationship issues. Couple counselling will assist you in sorting through issues and making sense of the issues. Areas that often come up in counselling are communication, intimacy, trust, extended family, finances, problem solving, and parenting styles (if children are involved).

I believe that a healthy couple's relationship is one of the most challenging types of relationships to develop and sustain. This is because a couple’s relationship requires that the couple juggle and balance well at least three types of relationship with each other. When all 3 types of relationships are functioning well between a couple, each individual will feel loved, valued, and respected; and the couple will be able to resolve conflict well and set and achieve common goals collaboratively. Through counseling, I can help you improve how you relate to each other as friends, partners and lovers. Instead of being and operating as individuals, you can be and operate as a true couple.

Couples counselling can be a little daunting to some, with the prospects of bringing out the skeletons in the closet can be scary and unforgiving. However, it doesn't have to be. My approach involves couples bettering their understanding of one another as individuals, strengthening their bond as a unit, and rekindling the spark that brought them together at the start. Through couples counselling, my goal is to help you improve communication, manage stressful times, and find appreciation for one another, regardless of the hurdles in your past.

Couple counseling in both hetero and homo sexual realtionships has the same starting point of communication, trust, and respect. As a professional using Interpersonal Communication techniques I would help the couple come to understand not only each other as a couple but also themselves as an individual in the couple's relationship. By role modeling an unbias position I will help lend a new perspective to the couple's relationship issues that may not have been seen through the day-to-day routine of their busy lives.

You might not be married but you are a couple. :) I believe relationships require empathy, openness and effort. I embrace diversity of all kinds and encourage a couple to seek therapy at any stage if they wish to increase their understanding of each other's needs. Even one visit to a therapist's office can help you see that change is possible and achievable with even a small amount of effort.
