When our marriage, or primary relationship is struggling or over, it can call everything up for question. Turning our life upside down, we may lose a sense of who we are. It can be a painful time of recognizing dynamics we have been caught in, patterns that limit us and feelings that are overwhelming. This territory encompasses many challenges within ourselves and within all our relationships.
Often the patterns we get caught in we learned from our childhood or earlier relationships in our lives. Whenever we find ourselves behaving or reacting in ways we don't want, yet struggle to respond differently, the past is present and gets in the way of our clarity.
Tressa works with you to take care of whatever past is present and support you to feel more agency in your life now. She draws from many areas of therapy such as attachment, relational psychotherapy, trauma, family systems and more, to guide you. She knows which therapy or modality is appropriate to use for the particular issue being addressed and seamlessly draws from her many years of training and experience.
Tressa is a skilled down-to-earth therapist and an excellent guide through this painful and challenging territory. She brings a natural warmth, humour and an open approach to therapy. She provides a non-judgmental, accepting and confidential online space where you can safely share the complexities of what you are experiencing. She is committed to support you to feel better about yourself and your life and discover your own unique ways to navigate this period of your life with greater empowerment and clarity.
