Deciding to seek counselling can feel like a difficult step to take, but the results can be hugely rewarding.  I am committed  to helping you discover new ways to bring a sense of trust, safety, connection and possibility to your lives and relationships. Whether you are a couple or individual seeking help with your relationship struggles or wanting to recover from loss or anxiety and to bring more balance and happiness to your life, making an appointment to begin your journey, is an important first step.
Despite your greatest efforts, you may find yourself moving from hope to despair, over and over again, as you desperately try to reach your loved one.  Often when we are needing our partner to open up and let us in or to acknowledge our efforts instead of seeming to notice only the places where we somehow disappoint them,  we get caught in a painful negative cycle that feels like attack and withdraw or throw up the barricades. Slowing down and unpacking the negative dance is the beginning of the healing journey.  This paves the way for you to discover a new way to communicate and a new language of love that begins to bring you closer rather than leaving you feeling lonely and further apart.
My therapeutic approach involves one of the most successful approaches to couples and relationship therapy available,  EFT - Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.

Research shows that 86% of couples completing couples counselling based EFT, a highly researched attachment-based approach, report experiencing greater happiness in their relationship with results that last. I can support you and your partner to discover effective ways to reach for each other, that bring you closer rather than leaving you caught in a negative dance.
There are three stage and nine steps in the EFT therapeutic map.
In Stage 1. I will help you discover how to calm the negative cycle that seems to take over your relationship, setting the stage for a new way to communicate with each other.
In stage two,  I will help you to continuing creating the safety to look beneath the surface and discover a deeper reality that brings you and your partner closer - into more loving understanding and connection. As you find new ways of communicating you will deepen the bond of safety and love, inviting the spark of  intimacy back into your relationship.
In Stage 3 we will be consolidating the gains you've made to last for a life time of love.
My therapeutic approach to couples counselling is based on the work of Dr. Sue Johnson and  Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, a highly researched, successful, evidence-based approach.  I recommend that my clients read her book, "Hold Me Tight".  Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love and her second book, "Love Sense" The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships.

 Do you feel stuck in feelings of anxiety and worry or find it difficult to cope with the pain  of loss?   Finding effective support to begin to move through your recovery process and to create the life and relationships you want is an important first step.

I can help you to bring balance and a sense of well being into your life and to unpack and  move through painful blocks that keep you feeling frustrated and in pain.   Drawing on many years of counselling experience and proven therapeutic methods,  I will help you examine limiting beliefs of your childhood that may keep you stuck and to take steps toward a life of self-acceptance, happiness and expanded possibilities.  
You can begin to change your life now.  For a 15 minute consultation or to set up an appointment, phone me at 604.219.2690 or email   For more dertailed information on my therapeutic background and approach, please visit my website at
