"Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard. People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choicest words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech.” - Edwin Friedman

Individual Counselling

People seek out individual counselling for many reasons. Some want to improve their ability to manage personal challenges, such as depression, anxiety, or stress. Some people want to find ways to improve and navigate themselves in their families or workplace. Others want to find ways to get their lives back on track again and/or experience a higher level of satisfaction and enjoyment out of their lives.

Couples Counselling

Our approach with couples is to address each person as a resourceful human being who is capable of creating positive change in the relationship. We believe that each person in the relationship is ultimately responsible for the destiny of the relationship and for their own personal life satisfaction. We believe that the qualities of openness, equality, honesty, and personal responsibility make up a healthy relationship. All couples are welcome, whether you are in a relationship crisis or simply want to make your good relationship even better.

Trauma Counselling

When a person experiences a "trauma" or "negative life experience," it can get be so upsetting to the person that it gets stuck, so to speak. When this happens, the original thoughts, feelings, images, and body sensations remain unprocessed and can inhibit the person's ability to move forward in life. We help people process through trauma so that people are more able to let traumas go and move forward in life with less baggage from the past.

Our Intention

Dean and Jennifer are passionate about helping people navigate themselves through the difficult life situations that we all find ourselves in from time to time. We enjoy assisting people towards ever greater levels of personal ability, responsibility, and relationship skills to achieve the most out of their lives and to be focused on their optimal life path. We use humor and a variety of therapeutic skills and challenges to help our client's think differently about their situation, obtain more clarity about themselves, and work towards positive change in their lives. We believe that everyone has the capacity to be a true leader in their lives and to be the instigator of the change they would like to see in their world. Counselling is typically short term (3-12 sessions) but can also be longer, depending on individual need. Most insurance plans reimburse the cost of sessions with a Registered Psychologist. Please check with your individual plan for information about coverage. We suggest for people who do not have insurance plans or whose plans do not cover all of the counselling fees and who pay "out of pocket", to consider counselling a personal investment in your health and wellness and to prioritize it accordingly.

The problem of projection
Oct 11, 2017

Our partners are those who are the closest to us and see us the most regularly in our day-to-day lives.  You would think that people would treat their life partners with the utmost respect, kindness, and love…and prioritize them above everything else.  But, this type of relationship is more the exception than the rule.   Rather, we tend to project our insecurities all over...    read more...
Addressing the "weeds" in your relationship
Oct 11, 2017

  The issues that couples argue about are like weeds in a garden (the garden called your marriage).  If you don’t address the weeds, eventually they tend to get bigger or more difficult to manage.  Sometimes the weeds take over...    read more...
