Relationship Counselling

I help couples find each other again; Get the skills you need to make your relationship glow. Stop having the same argument over and over, resolve conflict peacefully, solve gridlock (stuck problems), rebuild trust, and get your connection back. In relationship counselling I help couples deal with conflict and distance, teaching positive skills to communicate & connect. I coach couples in a gentle, non-judgmental way that allows them to gain control of interactions and find a deeper sense of trust, understanding, and intimacy. When your relationship works, everything else in life just feels that much better.

If you are dealing with pain and hurt from the ending of a relationship, I can help you through this difficult time too. I also offer effective strategies for dealing with addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma, and I can help with grief and loss. Overwhelmed by your thoughts? Get skills to de-clutter your mind, relax, and think and act clearly.


The Key to Change

If you find the same problems keep appearing in your life, chances are there are deeper issues. In the depth of your being key issues await your attention, and, once addressed, stuck patterns transform into understanding, better communication, and life-satisfaction. In psychotherapy, I can help with the symptoms (of depression, anxiety, relationship conflict) as well as the underlying issues, so that changes are long-term.

Find your calm harbour through life’s storms

Counseling is more than just listening, it is an active process of change; expect transformation. Most clients experience significant change after just a few sessions.
