Family Counsellor

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

Family therapy is a process for everyone to feel heard, understood and that their needs matter. From the youngest to the eldest all our needs matter. Through a process of growing empathy for each other, we can explore creative ways where everyone can get their needs met and everyone can have space to be themselves. Sometimes we all get confused about what we are really wanting. So often conflict and misunderstandings create isolation in even the most loving families. Our work together is to make the time and space to understand each other and find the way back from conflict to connection.

All families are unique. I work with any configuration of a family system (intergenerational, siblings, one parent, same- sex parents). My approach to therapy is to promote enhancement of individuals' strengths and family resources (support systems, membership in the community). I assist each member of the family identify changes they desire for the family and explore positive solutions for change between members. It is my hope that in the end all members feel more connected and stronger as a whole while participating positively in family life and the community.

Strong families assist each member to venture into the world as responsible and confident individuals. Counselling can help families build the strong foundation of understanding that’s required to do this.

Family Counsellor

Ingrid Dresher, RP

Registered Psychotherapist (College of Psychotherapists of Ontario)

Within Driving Distance of Oakville, ON

Therapy can provide a safe environment for families that seek to repair their relationships. The problems generally stem from a much earlier time, when it was hard for family members to understand the nature of their conflict. Each person often has felt hurt and misunderstood, and these feelings have perpetuated over time. My approach is to encourage dialogue between them to help them understand the dynamics that have prevented a fulfilling relationship. I also try to establish the positive intentions of the work they are about to do. Therapy is intended to give them insight into what went wrong and how to repair the relationship while working through the difficult feelings and mistrust.

Family Counsellor

Reta Walker, Ph.D, MCC

Registered Counsellor

11 - 1155 North Service Road West, Oakville, ON L6M 3E3

Families don't have to be perfect but when a family functions well, parents and children fulfill their roles, enjoy their life together and develop in a healthy way. A healthy family means that all of the members are involved, children are empowered and self esteem develops. As a therapist, I can assess family issues, direct you in appropriate roles and responsibilities and help you communicate more effectively.

Henry Gulabh, M.A., RP, (C) OACCPP, (C) ICADC

Certified Counsellor/ Certified Addictions Therapist

345 Lakeshore Road E, Suite 208,, Oakville, ON L6J 1J5

All families are the same and all families are different. Therapy is based on the family as an organised social unit that goes through phases of gradual but emotionally-charged change. Roles and functions often collide with personal needs and changing individual needs and hormonal behaviours that will clash with parenting styles triggering power struggles. Family dynamics must find a way to balance the conflicting childrens' needs to assert distinct identities while integrating conflicting parental values. Family therapy is difficult but growth-inducing for all but I find it helpful to see individuals separately for them to express ideas and feelings freely as it helps with communication.

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

1401 Golden Meadow Trail, Oakville, ON L6H 3H1

Everything relates to everything else, and families in all shapes and forms are no exception. Different ages, developmental levels in children, genders and or cultures need to be considered, when we try to establish a loving, respectful. proactive and supportive family team. I do believe, that the HOW, WHAT, WHEN and WHY of communication is what makes or breaks a family .... any relationship. Allow me to help you establish reasonable goals and find manageable solutions to challenges, which will improve your family's wellbeing. 905-842-3626
