HOLISTIC THERAPY FOR THE MOTHERS, THE FATHERS, THE COUPLES, AND MORE

This is for the couples, the mothers and the fathers. For the new parents who have lost themselves and their connection with one another; who reminisce and resent when thinking about the passion and chemistry their relationship used to have. Who feel unseen and under-appreciated by one another. Who grieve the old while looking for hope in the new. For the mothers who feel like life is an uphill battle and fathers who keep missing the mark. For those wanting to develop more cohesive structure in their life together. For those wanting to prioritize change and do the work.

For those who enjoy a whole person approach to healing without expecting someone or something to fix them (pssst - you're not broken).  For those looking to better understand the connection between birth trauma and relationship disconnect. For those looking to prevent helplessness in birth and labour and learn about autonomy, options and rights in pregnancy birth and labour.

YOU DESERVE TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS DURING YOUR BIRTHING EXPERIENCE

MORE INFORMATION

You have the right to decide how, where and with whom you give birth. As a birth rights advocate and birth trauma therapist, I have seen the impact of obstetrical violence. As a birth trauma survivor myself, I feel very strongly that families need to know how to interact with the information provided to them through midwives and physicians. Language rooted in fear, coercion and threats creates compliant but traumatized parents. Additionally, medical professionals don't always engage in evidence-based practices; this needs to end. You deserve transparency and support in making decisions about your pregnancy and birthing experience. 

Facilities do have a right to say who can be in the facility which can mean that your doula or support person could be forced to leave. Your birthing preferences may be harshly judged by family, friends, or providers who may employ coercive tactics to make you change your mind.

 Autonomy isn't about where or how you birth your baby, it's about knowing that the decisions you make about this chapter of your life are YOURS to make. Educating you on potential interventions, coercive tactics and the difference between policy and law is important in preventing obstetric violence. I have coached many new parents through their first and fifth pregnancy and birth experience. I want to show you how to use your voice and stand in your power.

BOOK YOUR SESSION

For the men who are hesitant to “do therapy” but really feel they are missing the mark at home with their partners and kids. From relationship skill building to psycho education on topics such as attachment, nervous system, communication , and developmental expectations. Building confidence and assertiveness in your life, while earning the trust and respect from your partner is key to nurturing a happy healthy family. Might seem like common sense, but there's no sense in continuing patterns that are keeping you stuck. Coaching sessions can be great for brainstorming and guidance acquisition. I promise this you won't be asked “And how does that make you feel”

WHO I SERVE

THE MOMS

01

Mind Online was created for the moms who struggle to feel peace and contentment in their day. For the ones who cry in the kitchen while cleaning the dishes for what feels like the 12th time, for the moms who feel lonely yet irritated by the company they keep, for the moms who feel resentment towards their partner for the unhealed wounds inflicted in the past that are being torn open daily. For the moms who buried their grief, the grief of their needs and wants, of their relationships with their own mother, for their birth hopes, for their autonomy, for their visions of motherhood. When your partner's needs seem to be more important than yours, and the division of labour in the home seems unfair. For the moms who desperately need their partners love and nurturing touch, but recoil at the thought of using sex as a currency to feel appreciated. For the moms who struggle with their self worth, self esteem, and need to heal from layers of hurt and suffering.

Your partner has come to you, with rage in her belly and tears in her eyes. She is communicating the best she is able that she needs more from you. That's because life with a newborn is so chaotic that things, like working on the relationship, or remembering to switch the washer to the dyer, just slip through the cracks. But more often it’s because the postpartum woman has historically been the Do-er of the emotional labor in that family, and in the days following labour, the sleeplessness, the feedings, and the sheer physical recovery that has to happen for her, women are simply unable to continue with the burden of that “invisible work” / emotional labour any longer. Your role the minute you find out your baby is on its way, is to stand in your power as protector, supporter, provider and, strong steady assertive energy. To ensure there is equity in the partnership, to learn the importance of pregnancy and birth advocacy. To face your fears of conflict avoidance with your family and understand that pleasing people will not nurture your relationship with your partner. She needs you to make sure you are grounded, in alignment, mindful, and aware of your own wounds, triggers, and traumas, so that you can choose her. Therapy might not be of interest to you, but I know a healthy relationship is. Together we can work to get you educated and understanding birthing rights and the importance of advocacy. Help you in being able to identify what obstetric violence is and how you can intervene. Understand the emotional weight your partner carries and how that is different from the weight you carry. Address your feelings of inadequacy and loneliness, while finding new ways to gain momentum in your intimate life. Start having hard conversations with your family and friends to set better boundaries and learn to work in unity with your partner. I know you want to do better, and sometimes you wish it wasn't so complicated. Lacking communication skills, and self awareness puts you in a sticky spot with your partner and your kids. So let's remedy that together, with my personal and professional expertise and your willingness to work, we will get your relationship exactly where you need it.

I often hear from couples when they are desperate to repair their relationships. I frequently see fundamentally resilient clients that may be facing a specific crisis and want the aid of a professional.
Partners come into couples counselling with a variety of issues to address, including sexual desire discrepancy, communication & conflict resolution, resentment and anger problems, identity and role conflict, dependence vs. independence, values, jealousy, family and in-law struggles, gender roles, and much more. 

Therapy shouldn't be the last resort for a couple, in fact, when used early on in conflict, the couple’s time and patience seems to be more available, therefore giving them the ability to ride out the storms. 
Relationship enrichment can also extend beyond partners to family friends and colleagues. Setting boundaries is a skill we are not taught as budding young adults learning who we are in the world. As a result, unless we are mentored by caregivers with healthy boundaries, many of us struggle to set boundaries, build confidence and learn essential interpersonal skills.

If you're seeing a theme of conflict, dissolved friendships and viewing the world in a negative light, chances are your relationships need some enriching.

HOW MIND ONLINE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT:

CONTACT ME HERE

As a client-centered, holistic therapist, I use a range of therapeutic approaches to support my clients. Through the years, I have found that an eclectic approach allows for the therapeutic relationship to evolve at the pace that feels right for the client. A holistic approach is based on the idea that when one part of our health is off, it’ll have a direct impact in the other areas.The overall goal of the holistic approach is to create an intense sense of self-awareness. My goal is to collaborate with you to help foster your awareness of the connections between emotions, thoughts, relationships, physical symptoms and past experiences. When done properly, holistic therapy can help you connect important aspects of your life that are working together in some way.

For example, clients may present the issue of “desire discrepancy” or a mismatch of libido in their relationships. This isn't a straight forward issue, many factors need to be taken into consideration; trauma (birth, sexual, attachment, childhood), attachment style, emotional safety, communication skill, mineral and nutrient deficiency, nervous system health and function, sense of purpose and fulfillment, sleep hygiene, childhood wounds etc. 

Ensuring that the body is supplied with the right ingredients to foster healthy emotional experience on both an intrapersonal and interpersonal levels happen with the assistance of central nervous system education and skill implementation. 

In addition to my own values, I stand by ensuring that all practitioners of Mind Online will uphold the confidentiality of each client and treat as confidential all information learned in the performance of their professional duties, while observing relevant requirements regarding disclosure (abuse and/or imminent danger to self and others). In addition all Mind Online practitioners will strive to be sensitive to the boundary needs of individual clients. Clinical social workers and psychotherapists of Mind Online do not make medical diagnosis nor prescribe medications without appropriate training and licensure. 



Sexual Enrichment for couples, what is it and do you need it?

Sexual enrichment is taking what you already have and know, and expanding it. It is utilizing the pillars of Intimacy, Energy, and Needs and Skill to create the relationship capable of withstanding any chapter of life. Sexual enrichment may not look very sexual at all. It may look a lot like basic skill interpersonal skill application or it may look like sexual education. 




Couples who have lost their chemistry amidst the growing, nurturing and supporting their family may benefit from acquiring sexual enrichment. 
Couples who are needing to relearn one another's bodies after pregnancy and birth (including birth trauma), may also benefit from the pillars of Sexual Enrichment. 
Couples who choose to enrich their sexual life's benefit from:
Assertive Communication
Affection and Good Feelings
Trust and loyalty around Agreements and Commitments
Intimacy and Emotional Connection
Acceptance of transitional chapters of life
