Knowing who I am, where I come from, and what I stand for is necessary to see if we are a good fit. For starters, I have a MSc in Couples & Family Therapy from the University of Guelph, I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist. My areas of expertise are in communication problems with couples, cross-cultural relationship conflict, infidelity, and addictions.
I see the world relationally. That means, to me everything is about relationships. Your relationship with yourself, your relationship with your partner, your relationship with your community, the world, or even your relationship with a substance. All around us there are relationships. In a nutshell, I have a direct, goal-oriented approach where I look to unpack and understand these relationships in a collaborative way. In my experience, doing so reveals recurring patterns, themes, and assumptions. Once this is known, it can be appreciated for what it is or it can be changed.
