Deciding on a marital therapist is an important decision. It must be someone with whom you and your spouse can relate to and respect because you are about to discuss some very private issues. The next decision is to know where to start.

My services are somewhat unique because I have a strong background in conflict resolution. I am comfortable managing and containing conflict that can feel unmanageable to spouses in the relationship.
In the beginning clients can expect to meet three times within the first two weeks. As clients show progress the sessions are scheduled further apart. When the goals established in the first session are met the process is complete however there is always a session booked three months later to address relapse and affirm the behaviours that are working.
The Resolvology Marriage Counselling Process:
Session one: informed consent, history and goal setting
Session two: time with each spouse individually to screen for affairs, violence and to be clear on perspective, During that time the other spouse completes standardized testing to identify strengths of marriage and examine motivation to change.
Session three: Education about conflict styles and identify your primary conflict style. Examine the use of power in relationship and the resulting communication difficulties
Session four: Engage clients in deep conversation uncovering the deeper issues motivating the disharmony, continuing to work towards goals established in session one.
Session five onwards: Increasing understanding and providing strategies aimed at helping clients meet their goals.
