Registered Psychotherapist (College of Psychotherapists of Ontario)

Toronto West, Ontario M9M 1B9 |

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.

The miscommunication, the ongoing arguments, the desperation to be heard, the lack of intimacy, the anger, the lack of support and affection, the dilemma, the stuckness and the longing for freedom, are all different states and feelings couple are often complaining about. Therapy makes it possible to shift the dynamic. With the help of a therapist you can connect to your deeper needs and desires, find and support that inner voice and get a chance to feel again that there is space for both of you to really hear each other. Opening to new possibilities and making peace with old or new realities will be an empowering result of therapy.

Registered Psychotherapist-Individuals and Couples/Marriage Counselling

120 Carlton Suite 413 (Cabbagetown/Downtown area), Toronto, Ontario M5A 4K2 | 416-528-8657

So much of what life hands us can cause us to feel isolated and lonely: our partnership/marriage shouldn't. Using the framework of EFT Couples Therapy and analysis in psychodynamic psychotherapy, we will be looking at cycles that occur in your partnership and explore why they have been happening particularly in your relationship. You will learn how to communicate your needs and wants in new ways. You will begin to feel heard, understood, supported and supporting and learn how to communicate feelings and thoughts, whether they be difficult or tender, in new ways. This process will unfold quickly and the results will be lasting and palpable. Being together shouldn't mean having to go it alone.

Registered Psychotherapist

Pape & Danforth, Toronto, Ontario M4K 3K8 | 6474014887

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.

Toronto, Toronto, Ontario M5E 1W7 | (647) 479-4347

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.

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.

When one person is leaning out of the relationship and the future of the relationship is uncertain, discernment counseling provides clarity and confidence in order to make a decision about how to move forward. It is a short term intervention where both partners are supported to gain understanding about the issues in their relationship, and based on that understanding, make a choice about whether try to move forward as a couple or not. It is not couples therapy and "fixing" the relationship is not the goal. Discernment counseling is like taking a step back in order to help each partner assess if repairing the relationship is a feasible and worthwhile endeavor.

You can have an even better relationship! I work with you to identify what your issues are. We learn what your communication issues are, what is working and what is not in your relationship and implement practical action plans to improve this. Further, we identify your negative patterns of relating to each other and how this is a habit that hurts the relationship, and we learn how to get out of that pattern, shift behaviors, and relate in the most respectful, loving, kind manner which ultimately often improves your sex life, your happiness, and your fulfillment.

Relationships are one of the most fulfilling experiences a person can have in their life. Couples may find themselves faced with challenges that are not always identifiable and can cause you to question your relationship. Couples therapy can provide guidance, support and help you build upon your relationship/bond with your partner, and strengthen the connection that the two of you have so that you can continue to enjoy and appreciate your union. I work with couples in all stages of their relationship. I provide a neutral, supportive and collaborative environment so that you can feel comfortable to express yourself fully.

I work with couples in the framework of the gold standard of couples work, Emotionally Focused Couples therapy. Empirically validated, it is the most contemporary method to bring relief to distressed relationships, and a loss of connection. Clients benefit from having their patterns of behaviour brought out into the open so they can have relief that "it takes two" and that we are not alone in our couples relationships.

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!

One of the biggest decisions we make in life is choosing our partner. And then the real work begins. Divorce rates speak to how difficult sustaining a healthy marriage can be. Evidence-based studies have shown essential elements to a healthy and nourishing relationship. Couples counselling focuses on a variety of these areas including, communication, conflict management/resolution, and connection. Presenting issues include communication, conflict, infidelity, parenting issues, separation and divorce.

Are you unhappy in your relationship? Would you like to learn how to treasure each other again? There are many ways to improve things between you and restore caring, IF you are both committed to the outcome. I believe in the work of Harville Hendrix and also in the value of agreeing to disagree sometimes, and to work around it. Forgiveness is a gift to ourselves as well as to our loved ones. Let's get started -- the sooner the better for the health of your relationship.

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?

Do opposites really attract? For some of us this is so true! And if we are so different, how do we be a couple and not let those differences drive us crazy? Being in relationship is always with its challenges. If you begin with (or learn how) to communicate in a productive, respectful and loving way, your differences can become opportunities to grow both personally and in the relationship. Effective communication that cares for your partner and gives you both positive and helpful outcomes is a learned skill. Relationships come in all forms and shapes! Sometimes we choose them, other times we are born into them! Either way, learning to be a skilled communicator is the key to success.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

324 Bloor St. West, 2nd Floor, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1W5 | 647-271-6364

I work with both heterosexual and same-sex couples dealing with infertility, communication problems, and trust and intimacy issues. I also help couples using assisted reproductive technologies (ART) with decision making about their family building strategies. Whether or not a couple is facing a life crisis, such as infertility, communication problems often cause the relationship to break down. Often learning new ways to manage conflict can allow couples to reconnect. I try to offer couples opportunities for discovery and experience in session, as well as giving them the tools to rebuild intimacy and trust independently.

2248 A Bloor Street West, 2nd Floor, Toronto, Ontario M6S 1N6 | 416-901-1199

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 counselling focusses on enhancing your relationship with your partner. You may do this type of therapy with, or without, your partner. Benefits to your relationship still can come from attending couples sessions on your own, such as, improving communication skills, developing assertiveness, overcoming resentments, improving intimacy, learning new ways to deal with your partner. When attending with your partner: * Learning how each of you are in relationships (early influences, patterns, self-defeating styles) * Increasing self-expression * Learning constructive ways to argue and fight * Better understanding of the each other (who you are really dealing with)

Are you contemplating divorce? Does your spouse want a divorce? Has your relationship reached the breaking point? Are you feeling disrespected, mistrustful? Is your spouse (or yourself) looking outside the marriage? Do you suffer from lack of intimacy or sexual desire? Believe it or not, these are all good signs that you still care and and have the intention to save your marriage, if you could. What if you found a way to make your partner understand your needs and created a relationship that was long-lasting and mutually fulfilling? Divorce Prevention has saved countless families from the harm and permanent aftermath that a divorce could inflict on your life. Even after infidelity.

When a couple is in trouble, the act of seeking out a counsellor has to be motivated by the desire to stay together through hard work. Therapy is not for those who need it but for those who want it. This is even more true when it comes to working with couples. The journey is one of finding once more what brought them together in the first place. We work with forgiveness and building trust. We find ways for the couple to once again feel a sense of warmth and compassion as we break down the walls of resentment. We look at what is triggering the couple to fight. We go through the anatomy of a common and repetitive fight. i also teach the couple some body centered techniques.
