“I couldn't connect with most of my family, and often felt like the family scapegoat. The cultural and generational differences made us feel like strangers.”

Relationship Therapy

Important note: This service is for individual counselling only. I do not offer couples or family therapy.

Our interpersonal relationships influence who we are and who we become, both for the better and the worse. Relationships can be challenging to navigate, and not just in intimate or romantic settings. Difficulties can arise in relationships with siblings, coworkers, friends, and acquaintances. A healthy perspective on these relationships is essential because they form a meaningful part of our lives and can significantly impact our emotional well-being.

How can therapy help improve your relationships?

Therapists can be instrumental in helping clients improve their psychological well-being, particularly when it comes to relationship difficulties outside of intimate or marital relationships. With empathy, patience, and skill, therapists can help clients develop skills and strategies to better understand and navigate challenging relationships, and manage their emotional responses to stressors in their social lives.

Anyone seeking greater wellbeing can benefit from therapy

to reduce stress and anxiety related to their relationships.


Therapists will typically use a range of interventions to help you improve your psychological well-being when it comes to interpersonal relationships. One common approach is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to relationship difficulties. Another modality is dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), which emphasizes mindfulness, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. A third approach that therapists may use is psychodynamic therapy, which aims to help you explore the unconscious dynamics that may be contributing to the relationship challenges. All of these can help you develop more effective ways of communicating your needs and emotions while also improving your ability to manage intense emotions.


Working with a therapist to understand and improve challenging relationships is an act of empowerment and a personal commitment to optimizing your mental health. Therapy can be an incredibly helpful guiding resource for individuals who are ready to be seen, heard, and validated on their own terms.
