Sage Counselling in Waterloo, Ontario I try to provide a warm, sensitive and compassionate environment to work through troubling issues in your marriage. I have specialized training and experience in working with couples, including those who are suffering deeply or who feel the relationship is over. I believe there is always a way forward, even if you are feeling hopeless, sad or angry, full of despair, or completely disconnected from your partner.
I work mainly within the framework of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a therapy model with impressive results. Through your work in the marriage counseling sessions, you may soon discover the real source of pain in your marriage, find the love you thought was gone, and build your own unique path forward.
This work is usually based on eight or ten weekly sessions, with suggested exercises and activities between meetings. For trauma around affairs and infidelity, I use the highly acclaimed approach of Dr. Kevin Skinner and the ADDO therapy network for sexual betrayal and recovery.
If you feel you are ready to try couples counseling, feel free to reach out to Sage Counselling today.
