Couples Counselor

Dana Simard, MC, RCC, ATR, RYT (200)

Registered Clinical Counsellor

3025 Shakespeare St, Victoria, BC V8R 4H6

I believe couples counselling to be a healthy way to both prevent significant problems, and an important method of addressing and sifting through already challenging dynamics. Communication, intimacy, trust, respect and shared ideas, beliefs and life direction are some of what often bring couples to counselling. I am non-judgemental and objective in my work with couples. It is of the utmost importance that each person feels safe, respected, valued and able to express themselves during sessions. Strong healthy relationships add meaning and satisfaction to life. I hope to assist couples in their journey to remain connected to one another.

Corrinne Allyson, PhD

Registered Professional Counsellor

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, BC V8N 1L6

Couples counselling (gay, straight, male or femaie) addresses problems arising from adult sexual or intimate relationships. The couple may or may not be in a marriage relationship. Even conflicts between best friends can respond to couples counselling. Have you come to counselling to stay together or to break up? We first meet to answer this question. It' not about who is right or wrong. There are three clients in the session: each of the individuals AND the relationship. We work together to restore trust and communication when the strain of work, family, money and health takes its toll.

Couples Counselor

Oscar Trad-Pizarro, MA, RSW, CCC, RRP, SEP

Registered Social Worker and Certified Canadian Counsellor

550-2950 Douglas St., Victoria, BC V8T 4N4

Using my unique approach, I help couples identify and separate the issues that belong to their relationship from the issues that belong to them personally. This approach allows couples to identify the issues that each person brings to the couple's relationship. My approach permits couples to work safely on the issues of their own while minimizing the impact on their relationship with each other.

Couples Counselor

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, BC V9A 5S1

Dr Sloat's couples counselling is based on the belief that we are all in this world to be happy, and in order to be happy we must have our needs met. When in relationships, people sometimes fail to get their needs met, and when this happens there is conflict and discord. Dr Sloat helps people to clarify and articulate their needs in relation to their partners, and thus facilitates harmony between them. She does not take sides, but instead focuses on helping partners to renegotiate and/or redefine their relationships such that they become viable on both sides. Also see -

Couples Counselor

Mark Watts, RTC, CH

Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Certified Hypnotherapist

228-1175 Cook Street, Victoria, BC V8V 4A1

Couples seek counselling for multiple reasons – from fighting and frustration to affairs or intimacy. Sometimes partners sense their relationship could just be better. Virtually all challenged relationships can be improved with better communications. Together we will explore and expand our communication skills, and practice them in a supportive and safe environment. Talking through the personal issues that each partner brings to the relationship can help couples build intimacy and grow closer.

Couples Counselor

Misha Gitberg, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

2571-B Penrhyn st, Victoria, BC V8N 1G2

I very much enjoy working with couples as the benefits of this work are very rewarding. As a couple therapist my main task is to help couples understand the negative cycle that is formed in their relationship; help them see how they each contribute to it and how to develop new constructive patterns of communication: open, honest, compassionate, respectful, loving. Once we realize that our partner is trying their best to protect themselves from emotional pain (rather then have their mind set on hurting us), we have a better chance at feeling true and deep compassion for them, disarming ourselves and learning to find a way to contact them in love.

Couples Counselor

Erin Laird, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

201-1600 Bay Street, Victoria, BC V8R 2B6

Thinking about getting married? Not the marriage type? Together learn more about yourself and the other you want to be with as we explore hopes, dreams, values, and beliefs. Master the art of negotiation and compromise in conflict, as well as the maintenance of healthy boundaries around those "big deal-breaker" issues. Couples of all types of configurations will learn about being an ally for each other as we work towards respect, love, collaborative problem solving and mutual understanding.

Couples Counselor

Michelle Iulianella, MBA, MA, RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

202 - 2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, BC V8R 1G3

In working with couples experiencing all types of distress, I use the empirically validated Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to facilitate the creation of new emotional bonds. By slowing down, exploring and stopping destructive cycles as they play out for each couple, I empower each partner to begin to understand the other's underlying attachment styles and emotional needs in profound and transformative ways. As a result, couples feel closer, more emotionally connected and more fulfilled in their relationships, regardless of the level of distress they entered therapy with.

Hannah Caradonna, MSW, RCSW, RCC

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Registered Clinical Counsellor

#318-1175 Cook St., Victoria, BC V8V 4A1

Couples come to therapy for a variety of reasons. The goal with couples therapy is to strengthen the friendship between the couple, improve communication particularly on ongoing conflictual issues and to create shared meaning and future plans together. My style is based on the Gottman couple therapy. The benefit of couples therapy is a stronger relationship based on trust and intimacy.
