Marital Therapy / Couples Counselling

One way in which we find meaning as humans is through our relationships. However, conflicts arise in every relationship. Ongoing relationship distress is harmful to each romantic partner’s mental and physical wellbeing, and in addition, can negatively impact the kids. Difficult conflict can lead to things being said that hurt us at our core. The growing emotional distance can leave us feeling like we are stranded on a boat in the middle of an ocean - desperate for connection, safety, and security. 

Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy focused on helping a couple work through challenges, understand their relationship better, and develop healthier ways of relating to one another.
