This Hart therapist is an empathetic and supportive therapist who has been working with people for over 10 years. He provides a calm and collaborative space, allowing couples to fully understand and heal from the conflict and hurt they have experienced in their relationships. His hope is that couples leave therapy with an understanding of their difficulties, better approaches to conflict, a greater sense of support, intimacy, and mutual enjoyment in their relationship, and a renewed and strengthened love for each other.
With experience working with individuals as well as couples, he understands some of the underlying issues, such as attachment and trauma, that might contribute to problems in relationships. He aims to work in partnership with both members of the couple, identifying dysfunctional patterns instead of judging or blaming.
Having trained in Integrative Psychotherapy, he is skilled in tailoring his approach to each client and couple, drawing on models such as Emotion Focused Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, Existential, Somatic, and Psychodynamic approaches. He has seen many couples who felt satisfied after just a few sessions, and others who have come for longer periods.
With a passion for couples therapy, he enjoys both short and long term work, and can often find something inspirational in the efforts of couples to do the work to repair their relationships. He has helped couples struggling with a range of issues including persistent conflict, substance use, trust issues, recovery from infidelity, use of pornography, emotional disconnection, communication problems, mismatched sexual desire and lack of sex.
