Couple & Marriage Co-Therapists
We are a married couple who have lived and worked together for over 46 years. As individual therapists, as co-therapists, as parents and grandparents, we have acquired a rich source of theoretical and practical knowledge to help couples develop secure-functioning and emotionally-committed relationships. Since opening our practice over 20 years ago, we have worked for the most part as a husband-and-wife co-therapy team focusing on 3-day Couple Intensives for both married and non-married heterosexual and same-sex couples.

Individual Counselling – Women’s Issues
In addition to my work as an Intensive Couple therapist, I maintain an Individual counselling practice for women. Through private, in-person, telephone or online videoconference sessions, I help my clients gain a deeper understanding of how their early childhood experiences unconsciously frame the way they see the world. Together we develop ways to build self-esteem, strategies to communicate more effectively, and coping mechanisms to deal with traumatic loss. I focus on helping them create healthy and secure-functioning relationships with family, partners, friends, employers and colleagues. I work out of home office in Ottawa, Ontario and online via videoconference.
Vibrant Beyond Sixty
More recently, I have been working with women facing late-in-life challenges as they transition into their retirement years. In addition to my role as a couple and individual therapist, I am building an online community dedicated to the spiritual and emotional growth of women in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Here, women from all over the world will share their knowledge and life experiences, building a circle of friendship, and encouraging others to lead creative and healthy lives as they grow older. My podcast and blog will provide a platform for women to share stories, offer wisdom, and inspire others to live to the fullest what could be the best third of their lives.
