Couples, Marriage and Family Therapy  

For Improved Communication and Stronger Relationships

Each person in a relationship has a deep need to feel they are secure and belong. The trust in the dependability of the relationship is essential. The foundation of this program is a series of skills addressing these needs and deepening the sense of unity.

This program offers couples, marriage and family therapy services to help improve communication and strengthen relationships. I use evidence-based techniques to address common concerns such as infidelity, parenting issues, money management and conflict resolution. I understand that every relationship is unique and I will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. Whether you are experiencing challenges in your marriage or are looking to enhance your existing relationship, this program can help bring closeness and understanding.

Take the First Step Towards a Healthier Relationship


Couples Therapy

In couples therapy, the focus is on creating a sense of security and trust within the relationship. Each individual has a deep need to feel safe and welcome within the partnership. This trust in the dependability of the relationship serves as a foundation for couples to work through conflict and improve communication. As couples therapy progresses, individuals learn to address issues and express their needs with honesty and compassion. Ultimately, the goal is for couples to create a secure bond where both partners feel supported and understood. By addressing underlying issues and promoting healthy communication, couples therapy can help bring stability and strengthen the bond between partners.

Individual Counselling

Marriage Therapy

Marriage therapy, also known as marriage counselling, can be a helpful tool for couples seeking to improve their relationship. It is often a space for couples to discuss and work through conflicts and challenges in their marriage, with the guidance of a trained therapist. Couples may seek marriage therapy at any stage in their marriage, whether they are experiencing difficulties or simply wanting to further improve the quality of their friendship. Through open communication and problem-solving techniques, marriage therapy can help couples learn how to better understand and support each other and presents an opportunity for couples to work towards a healthier and happier life experience.

Family-Children Counselling

Family Therapy

Family therapy is a form of therapy that involves the entire family unit, rather than just one individual. Family dynamics can have a large impact on each individual’s mental health, and counselling aims to address and improve these dynamics. I work with all members of the family to communicate effectively, understand each other’s perspectives, resolve conflicts, and build healthier relationships. Family therapy can be helpful for families dealing with a variety of issues, such as difficulties blended families might face, parenting challenges, communication problems, or even substance abuse. Family therapy sessions often involve discussion and role-playing exercises aimed at improving the functioning of the entire family unit. It can be a valuable tool for creating positive changes within a family dynamic. The Satire techniques are an integral part of this program.
