Relationship Counselling Services

 

Relationship conflict and ruptures can be a source of much distress in lives.  It is also through relationships we learn to heal provided the right therapeutic conditions. I offer counselling services for couples and families who are looking for support in repairing relationship ruptures and learning skills and strategies to manage conflict.  

A relationship conflict can arise in an intimate relationship setting, a friendship or a family.   I specialize in addressing the common challenges that can arise relationships.  Relationships can encounter various issues, such as frequent conflicts, communication breakdowns, emotional distance, infidelity, and struggles with intimacy. Families may also seek therapy to navigate issues arising from a rift or estrangement, the effects of substance use, and significant transitions such as a divorce or separation.  I provide a safe and supportive space where people in relationships with each other can explore these challenges, deepen their understanding of each other, and develop healthier patterns of interaction.
