"I help couples who feel like their relationship sucks, to not have a relationship that sucks."
Are you feeling stuck? Tired of waking up exhausted, depressed and not ready to take on another day? Do you wonder what life could be like if it wasn't for all your anxiety? Can your self-esteem use a boost? Maybe you are in a relationship that just totally sucks? It's time to stop feeling alone!
Through individual counselling we can work through your challenging relationships, the anxiety and the negative self-talk that you have. I will give you activities (homework!) to do in between sessions that can help you. I am here to help!
Did you just spend another night on the couch? Tired of all the fighting and bickering? Are you losing hope that your relationship will last? Do you often tell your friends just how much your relationship sucks?
Couples & relationship counselling can help! I provide direct, interactive and "lingo" free therapy with a focus on finding solutions while challenging each partners thoughts and cognitions. I will not sit for an hour nodding my head telling you that everything you are doing is perfect. Expect to be challenged in a respectful and therapeutic way. We will talk alot about communication, resolving conflict, emotionally leaning in, dismissive behaviors and more! I am here to help!
Did he finally propose? Or maybe things are getting pretty serious that you can't stop thinking about your future with her? Marriage preparation and premarital counselling gives the two of you a solid foundation to build your lives together. A structured and practical program for dating couples, engaged couples and newlyweds. Best part, it's cheaper than the cake.
You probably never imagined yourself surfing the web looking for a counsellor or a therapist. Looking for help. Did it really come to this? Are things really this bad? Or maybe you have been looking for a while. A long while. But before you commit to talking with someone, things changed and improved. Or so you thought. Counselling and therapy was often thought of as being for the weak. For the uneducated. That was a long time ago. Today, it is quite the opposite. People from all backgrounds, education levels and situations come to counselling and therapy to help manage some every day challenges. Even those who have great family support. They want someone who will be unbiased. Someone that they can trust and tell all of their secrets, knowing that they will not be judged. Counselling and therapy is for everyone.
So what exactly do I offer? How can I possibly help you? Well, first off, I am solution-based. After hearing your story, I will help you find real solutions. We will track the progress and I will support you in between our sessions. I am trained in CBT. I will challenge your thoughts and processes and will teach you how to challenge your thoughts yourself. There will be tasks to complete in between our sessions. You will become an expert at recognizing your thought patterns and how it effects your behavior. I am a real person. None of this therapy lingo or constantly asking you "how did that make you feel". I ask real questions so that I can know you and your situation in a deep and intimate way. I am responsive. I actually do reply back to texts, emails and voice messages on the same day. And we do set up appointments that work with your schedule. I am affordable. I am sensitive to the financial restraints that many of us face.
