DO YOU WORK MAINLY WITH COUPLES?
As a couple therapist trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), my work is focused on couples. EFT is the leading model in the world for couple therapy. Based on the science of attachment, this empirically-proven model can help partners not only deescalate the negative patterns that have taken over their relationship but can also help them build stronger bonds that will last.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO WE NEED?
Goals of therapy and the number of sessions depend on the circumstances of each couple. The focus is to not only find short-term resolution but to create lasting change to the long-term path of the relationship. The goals of therapy will always be collaboratively reevaluated throughout therapy.
WHAT ARE THE INITIAL STEPS TO START?
After contacting me and you feel like there is a good connection, I will email you an intake form for you and your partner to fill out separately. This form will have questions that will help me understand your needs better so we can begin our work.
DOES MY INSURANCE COVER THERAPY?
As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #3164) licensed by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), most insurance companies recognize this designation. It is best for you to check with your service provider.
DO YOU OFFER ONLINE THERAPY?
Yes, I have shifted to online therapy this past year, and the couples that I see prefer the convenience of connecting from home to accommodate work and family schedules. This has also allowed couples in long-distance relationships to seek out support. Telehealth has not affected therapy outcomes nor compromised the therapist-client relationship. Evening and weekend times are available.
