Are you and your partner having communication issues? Are you finding it difficult to effectively resolve conflicts? Are you dealing with infidelity, lack of trust, or are you feeling as though you have grown apart after years of putting the children first?
Couples counselling can help you both gain insight into what is not working and why. I can help you understand the dynamics of your relationship and pinpoint areas of conflict. Through counselling, couples are often successful at restoring trust and intimacy, putting fun back into their relationship and renewing that ‘spark’ that has faded away over the years.

Or did you grow up in a family with one or more alcoholic parents? Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) experience very specific, typical traumas that can affect the way you feel about yourself and can make it difficult for you to feel you are leading a “normal” adult life. We can explore how the alcoholic parent’s behaviours have affected you. Click here to see how I can help you understand the coping mechanisms you developed to manage your situation as you grew up.
Are you dealing with a recent traumatic event that continues to plague you? Was there a traumatic event in your childhood that you just can’t shake? Have you been a victim of crime, such as an assault or burglary? Have you been in a car accident?
