I work with many couples who are going through the distress of sex addiction and infidelity. My approach is to begin the therapy with each partner individually. Once they have each gained some traction in the chaos, I bring them together to do couple's sessions. If separation is necessary or unavoidable, I guide couples through a conditional (planned) separation. When a couple is ready to reconcile, I use the six pillars of marriage to help them rebuild a brand new relationship.

Happily married but want a deeper connection? Or, tired of arguing and not being understood? There are many underlying issues that affect a relationship. Childhood experiences often impact how each partner communicates or copes with conflict, stress, emotions, etc. Life events and transitions can also stir up overwhelming emotions and tax resources affecting the quality of a relationship. Through therapy, you will discover how past and present life experiences are affecting you, your partner, and your relationship and identify harmful patterns that are hindering the intimacy you long for. Through effective communication techniques you will gain the tools to understand one another better.

Couple counseling is a type of psychotherapy for a married couple or established partners that tries to resolve problems in the relationship. I am trained in psychotherapy and family systems theory.One of my focuses in couple counseling is to gain an understanding of my clients' symptoms and their perspectives on the relationship. I respectfully explore with clients their relationship patterns and interactions. One area of focus is to help clients understand how their interactions are contributing to problems in their relationship. New patterns of relating can then can be developed.

Positive relationships have a remarkable impact on our lives. A sense of well-being and emotional health can be impacted heavily by relationships. Sometimes, when relationships are no longer positive, it can be distressing, leaving individuals feeling betrayed, upset, cut off and even angry. Working with couples in a supportive, caring way, together, we will explore your issues to improve communication and to discover a rekindling of your relationship.

Couple counselling can assist with the issues and patterns that get in the way of intimacy espescially if experiences of hurt have been stored or left unresolved. Couple counselling can assist with identifying the blocks to intimacy and then finding ways to express what each partner needs, slowly move towards resoloving conflicts and reduce relationship distress. An emotion focused approach is utilized for guiding the therapy process.

Using biblical principles I help couples get to the core of the problems they are experiencing. Most marital conflict stems from inability to communicate effectively. I offer a safe environment where couples can be open and honest about their feelings towards each other and together we discover new and better ways to communicate.

Working with couples is a dynamic process because each one arrives with their own set of family rules, messages, patterns and beliefs that they grew up with. Understanding each others behaviour within the relationship can be very useful for understanding your role and that of your partner in creating the dynamics in your life. All blendings of couples are welcome in Donna's practice.

Understanding the couple relationship is crusial in having a loving, long lasting relationship. Learn that a relationship is like a two sided coin, both sides make up a coin. The two sides of a relationship are the functional side and the intimacy side. Are both sides getting equal attention? Learn what men want in the relationship and what women want in the relationship. How are you at meeting each other's needs and understanding how you want your needs met? Learn communication skills that really work towards resolving conflict and being heard. Both partners in the relationship need to be heard and understood.

All of us were created for relationship. Marriage is the most intimate form of all relationships. It, therefore, can also be the source of our most agonizing pain. It takes maturity, dedication and insight to make such a relationship successful. Every relationship is imperfect and can benefit from deeper work. Sometines, we get very much off track. I can help by looking at communication, conflict, misunderstandings, betrayal, intimacy, wounding and abuse. I can help couples identify their individual personalities and love languages. I can help couples come to a place where each of their needs are being met. I also love to do premarital counselling where much prevention can occur.

Couples so often drift into habits of not recognizing each other's attempts to connect. Sometimes a fresh look can help see the blind spots - the things you've stopped doing; the missed opportunities that are essential to a deep bond. I work with couples on identifying and recommitting to love - which is a choice of the will, at the heart of it all.
