We are empathetic to the fact that life can become overwhelming and that sometimes we need support to grow, heal and gain a greater perspective on where we came from and what we aspire to become. My passion and interest is to help clients be attentive and open to what they already know to be right, and to tap into and assess what they uniquely bring into their relationships and address patterns and look for new ways to learn from their past.
We believe that you are the expert of your own life. Our role is to provide you with support as you discover the stumbling blocks that get in the way of your progress. Individual therapy can address life transition and life balance, work and career issues, grief and loss, trauma and anxiety.
Intensive Couple and Family Counselling
Couples seeking to strengthen their emotional connection at various stages of their relationship should consider counselling as an effective way to enhancing their connection and as a strategy for their lives. Therapy sessions are a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to their relationship challenges.
When we address the emotional pain that hold some families hostage we are breaking generational harms and essentially supporting individuals to create healthy relationships. We meet with families during some of the most challenging times in their life such as; job loss, divorce, the death of a loved one, after a family member has been incarcerated or following a recent mental health diagnosis. The importance of noticing what is working and what might be hindering the relationships amongst family members is vital and as such, I invite clients to be active participants during our sessions to gain the skills they will need to understand their role and notice patterns to reduce the distress.
We believe that obtaining therapy is proof that your relationship is a priority and that maintaining a safe and secure connection continues to be a meaningful for various couples.
