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.

I use a variety of strategies to help people learn how to nurture and maintain enduring relationships. Using EFT (Emotional Focused Therapy for Couples), along with energetic, cognitive and behavioral strategies, I help people feel, think and act in ways that are most conducive to happiness and harmony in their intimate lives. Often it is more important to repair the process of communication than it is to solve any one issue. Once partners learn how to take care of each other's sensitivities and vulnerabilities, learning to respect rather than change the person they are with, it becomes easier to solve problems and resolve issues.

In the downtown Toronto area, people come to see me for help with marital and couples-related conflicts. I am very comfortable helping couples who are in straight, gay, or lesbian relationships. Conflicts often come up between partners in relation to difficulties with intimacy, conflicts surrounding extended family members, and disagreements around family goals and priorities.

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couple problems begin when you experience an absence of positive intimate interactions: a knowing smile, an affectionate wink, making the other laugh, a gentle touch or unexpected hug. You start to feel like you are in a room mate relationship. If you are like most couples, as a man, you will tend to experience this by feeling rejected, inadequate, or like a failure. As a woman, you will tend to experience this as feeling abandoned, alone and disconnected. Many couples come for couples therapy long after emotional responsiveness has decreased and when affection is in short supply. I am an EFT Couples Therapist with 30 years of experience helping couples who don't wait until it is too late.

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.

All relationships hit rough patches from time to time. However couples who have the skills to identify and talk in a mature and calm manner are able to manage these rough patches before they become mighty marriage mountains to scale. When couples struggle to communicate, be active and present participants in their relationship, take responsibility for their part of the problem and the solution we end up with a breakdown of the relationship. It is possible to learn the skills that will improve your relationship. Working on improving communication skills, conflict resolutions and negotiating skills, stress and self management skills and much more will help grow your relationship.

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.

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?

I love working with couples, because often the problems you see as insurmountable are just a problem of communication. People disagree... this is a given. It's HOW you deal with disagreements that makes the difference between a strong marriage and a weak one. I can show you how your current approach to communicating is working against your interests, and give you a better method for getting your needs met in the relationship. This isn't about giving in or compromising. It's about being honest and authentic, and feeling relaxed and fulfilled with your partner.
