Relationship Therapy

At ML Family Counselling our therapists welcome and enjoy working with all couples and all types of reationships. Our clients are monogamous, polyamorous, kinky, queer, trans, and everything in between. We are LGBTQ+, kink, and poly-friendly, aware, and informed.

Relationship therapy can help partners express needs, worries, and desires in a neutral and comfortable setting. Many issues are rooted in ineffective communication or strained connection, which often leads to unclear expectations, conflict, sexual issues, or emotional withdrawal.

  • Feeling lonely and disconnected
  • Communication problems
  • Sex and intimacy issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opening up a relationship
  • Feeling emotionally trapped
  • Transitioning from partners to parents
  • Jealousy and trust issues
  • Needing help ending the relationship

As humans, we long for connection – we want to be understood, cared for, heard, loved, and appreciated by our partners. We enter relationships, no matter how many or for how long, to receive friendship, admiration, or love. Let’s face it though – life happens. Things change we grow older, enter new chapters, or life goals change. Sometimes, we encounter hardships, like illness, deaths, or infidelity. Relationships aren’t static – they change and evolve with time, just as we do. With that, difficulties happen, and we forget the passion and love that brought us together in the first place.

Whatever the issue may be or how it started, we want to help you reconnect, repair your relationship wounds, and begin to move forward feeling more connected with your partner(s) and in your relationship.

Therapy can help! It is 100% possible to go from feeling hopeless in your relationship to feeling hopeful and connected. Identify your relationship patterns, learn communication skills to help you work through conflict in constructive ways, rebuild trust, focus on friendship, build intimacy, increase play in your relationship.
