I am a Couples Counsellor and Relationship Psychotherapist in Vancouver, BC for Couples, Families and Individuals who want help with repairing broken relationships and living a more fulfilling life together.
Is your relationship keeping you up at night?
Many of my clients come to me after sleepless nights in excruciating distress and pain with the worry that their relationship is on the verge of ending. Often couples are caught in a repeating patterns of rehashing old arguments, dirty fighting, stonewalling, emotional disconnection and isolation as if poison is dropping on their relationship over and over pulling them further and further apart.
Some clients are in such a conflict avoidance pattern that they feel so disconnected and can sense something bubbling under the surface that they just cannot figure out and name. Sometimes couples are struggling with relationship traumas like early childhood attachment issues and emotional and physical infidelity and don’t know how to heal from this kind of relationship rupture. Sometimes couples are confused how the person they felt passionate about and so loved and respected can seem like a distant stranger and are unsure of what to do.
If this sounds like something you are struggling with my message to you is that you and your partner can heal your relationship pain and get back the passion, respect, fun and connection that initially brought you two together. Everyday it is an honour for me to have the privilege to be invited into my clients relationships where I can help them see the issues that may be driving a wedge and poisoning the connection that initially brought them together.
Where there are strong, sturdy relationships - life thrives.
While working with clients, I see over and over their walls come down, conflicts dissipate, compassion and empathy for one another reemerge and a reawakening of connection and intimacy that was painfully lost. As their relationships get back on track I see reduced anxiety and depression, increased self-esteem and hope and confidence that they are building a strong and fulfilling future together.
