About

I use primarily the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy for couple counselling. I have the privilege of helping reconcile couples whose marriages/relationships, were on the brink of breakup as a result of infidelities or other issues, like for instance addictions. I believe that whatever the issues, the couple can work toward reconciliation and marital harmony. For the "healing" from betrayal we will work through Gottman's 3 steps: Atonement, Attunement & Attachment. You are encouraged to take an online assessment of your couple's relationship which is an important tool to help work through the deep issues in your marriage.
My areas of work include marriage preparation and family therapy. During the couple's counselling sessions, to make any meaningful headway, it may be necessary to engage in individual counselling. This may include resolving issues like mood [depression] and thought disorders, borderline personality, OCD, ADHD and others. With marital betrayals, it is often helpful to undergo grief therapy with me.
When there are betrayals in the relationship, the betrayed partner can be "traumatized" with PTSD symptoms. We will do an assessment using the DSM-5 (PCL-5) a PTSD Checklist for trauma. I can assist you in assessing the severity of the trauma you are experiencing as a certified clinical trauma specialist and help resolve the symptoms. As a trained Multichannel Eye Movement Integration [M.E.M.I.] therapist, I will also be able to help you resolve, extinguish, desensitize or integrate your traumatic memories/experiences. The psychotherapeutic counselling approach I use is "Salutogenic" which focuses on the wellness of individuals. I value the therapeutic alliance with clients which plays a great part in the client's healing journey. I am a cancer survivor and I believe that both mental and physical health are important. I have been certified as a whole food plant-based diet coach since 2019. I prepare couples for marriage, as a SYMBIS facilitator.
