Couples Therapy

All Couples are welcome. Your therapist ‘tunes in’ to both partners’ experiences in order to understand the needs, longings and patterns of relating that you each bring to your relationship. Relationship difficulties often stem from patterns that were learned in the past as a means of coping. Negative repetitive cycles can leave partners disconnected and at an impasse, or in the turmoil of conf... Read More

All Couples are welcome. Your therapist ‘tunes in’ to both partners’ experiences in order to understand the needs, longings and patterns of relating that you each bring to your relationship. Relationship difficulties often stem from patterns that were learned in the past as a means of coping. Negative repetitive cycles can leave partners disconnected and at an impasse, or in the turmoil of conflict. We truly believe in the real potential for growth and building new patterns together.

We offer calm, non-judgemental, and warm presence which supports couples to feel heard and to gain empathy for each other so that they can free themselves from the painful snags, barriers, or breakdowns in trust and safety that they experience. We are also ready to connect and assist with the intense emotional distress that couples may be struggling with.

This one day workshop will give you the tools to assess what isn’t working in your relationship and pointers on how to improve communication and intimacy.  In six hours we will cover much of the ground that would be explored in as many sessions of couples therapy.   This information may be all you need to improve your relationship but if expert guidance is required you will be well ahead of the game when you begin therapy.

The format of the workshop is largely educational, with opportunities for practice.   However, there is no requirement of participation and no expectation that you share any personal information with the group.

The fee our Living in Connection Workshop and is $250 for Individual Registrations and $450 for Couple Registrations.

Cancellation policy: Payment is due at time of registration. The fee is entirely refundable up to two weeks before the event and 50% refundable up to one week prior. There are no refunds given the week prior to the event, but fees paid may be transferred to a future event, or to services rendered by either of the facilitators.

My experience over the last 27 years includes private practice, community non-profit, community health care and teaching as an adjunct field supervisor with the University of Toronto Graduate Studies Social Work program.

In supervising and supporting therapists I repeatedly experience profound respect for the energy, capacity and commitment my colleagues offer to their clients’ wellbeing. I easily lean into the role of being supportive, encouraging, challenging and protective.

The cornerstones of my theoretical framework include the centrality of relational practice, attachment theory, relational neuroscience, embodied mindfulness, developmental psychology, trauma theory and an inclusive anti-oppression framework.
