This Hart therapist is a fully qualified, registered psychotherapist who supports men, women and couples with relationship issues, attachment disturbances, and trauma. He works with individuals and couples in both short term and long term psychotherapy and counseling.
As an integrative psychotherapist, he tailors his approach to suit your needs as a couple. Rather than viewing you as a list of symptoms or problems, he takes into account how external factors such as family, past relationship history, and even your lifestyle might be contributing to the challenges you’re facing.
As a couples counselor, this Hart therapist does not see himself as some kind of magician who has the magical solution to all of your problems. You might recognize the futility of trying to “force” someone to change their bad habits and improve themselves, like your parents, friends, or even your partner! Instead, he recognizes that the best therapy happens when clients are eager to work on their challenges, face their fears, and accept their shortcomings, in the context of relational safety. This places him squarely in the role of a facilitator, assisting you in the process rather than telling you what to do.
His approach is developmentally focused, which acknowledges how events in your early life and foundational relationships may now be impacting your relationships as an adult. He acknowledges the impact that trauma and attachment issues can have on your ability to trust and feel safe with your partner. Additionally, he is influenced by the Gottman Method, Imago Relationship Therapy, Mentalization-Based Therapy, and the Enneagram of personality.
He is passionate about helping you to formulate goals for therapy and your life together, and learning how to work as a team towards those goals. He aims to foster better communication between partners, and adopts a direct, yet compassionate style when engaging with his clients.
We’ve spent the past 20+ years helping over 25,000 couples rediscover their happiness after having lost their way, through effective relationship and marriage counselling.
Your relationship deserves a couple’s therapist who is understanding and experienced in helping couples in turmoil quickly get to the core of their issues, to begin the healing process sooner.
