Experience Change with Family Tree Counselling
What To Expect At Your Visit
I am passionate about change and strongly believe all individuals have potential for personal growth. I believe counselling plays an important role providing hope, guidance, reflection, and a new perspective for people as they navigate the inevitable ups and downs. In my understanding, counselling gives opportunities for everyone to change their relationships with significant others, change their inner self, and generally live a more fulfilling life.
“That which is created in a relationship can be fixed in a relationship.”

In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.
It is a common misconception that seeking couples therapy means your relationship has serious problems or is headed for divorce (or a breakup). All relationships have issues and conflict, and we have professionals who can help you manage them in a way that improves your quality of life.
Families are complicated – people have different temperaments, sensitivities, and communication styles. Navigating those differences can be challenging. It is very difficult to find balance between supporting the people we love and honouring our own boundaries.
