Therapy should feel comfortable and safe for optimal progress to take place. That’s why as a client, you can always expect patience, kindness, respect, and non-judgmental support as we work together to heal relationship pain. During couples therapy, this means we treat you as equals, and we are respectful of each of your experiences in your relationship. We work to support you as individuals and as a couple to ensure that you are both heard, seen, and supported while we work to improve your relationship. As experienced therapists, we also provide grounded and authentic feedback when required.
As your therapist, our work begins before our first appointment. Before booking with one of our team, we discuss your goals for therapy and ask you and your partner (for couples therapy) to complete a confidential questionnaire to help your therapist understand both of your perspectives ahead of time. Doing this work beforehand saves you time and money, as once we assess your answers, we can begin work as soon as your first session begins.
We have experience counselling clients from the entire spectrum of sexual preferences, and from multi-ethnic backgrounds. we respect, welcome, and celebrate the diversity of our clients, and work hard to ensure you feel safe, understood, and accepted during our sessions.
As a result, our clients stay with us throughout their challenges and return to us if anything arises later in life. This loyalty comes from their trust that we have the tools and knowledge to help them solve any problem that comes up in their relationships. Typically, our patients who relocate choose to continue to work with us via online virtual platforms. We deeply treasure the relationships that we have built with our clients over the years and look forward to many more.
Jillian and Rebecca
As a therapist, parent, and spouse, I understand how challenging relationships can be and how difficult it can be to break old unproductive patterns of relating. In my early life, I was unable to connect beyond the surface level with my partners due to limitations and fears within myself. Fortunately, I worked determinedly to forge a deeper, more conscious connection with myself, which has helped me to open up to others and forge warm, connective, joyful and lasting relationships. As a result, I am not only a much better partner; I am also a better parent, therapist, and friend.
My personal and professional experience with parenting, co-parenting, mediation, multi-cultural problem solving, and my sexuality training, help me relate with my clients and give meaningful guidance to help them solve a problem
I have been working in field of counselling and Social Work for over 20 years and have experience with individuals presenting with a variety of needs.
Drawing on my experience, education and continued training, I am able to help individuals navigate issues related to relationships, work/life stress, self-esteem/self-acceptance, motivation, and anxiety/depression.
Together we will set achievable goals and move your life in the direction that you are wanting while understanding and removing the barriers that have been present up until now.
