Worn out from never-ending conflict at home? At your wit’s end over your kids’ behaviour?
Struggling to communicate with the people you love the most? Feeling guilty about your knee-jerk reactions to these problems?

I can help. I am a marriage and family therapist and can teach individuals, couples, and parents of children between the ages of 6 – 18 the tools and strategies to communicate effectively and help today’s families to: 

> communicate effectively and easily,
> equip you with effective tools for any discipline challenge,
> lower stress by getting your family working as a team – as well as
> overcome stress, guilt, anxiety and depression.

To take the first step in regaining control at home, contact the Oakville Family Institute receptionist at (905) 491-6949 for more information, or to book an appointment for a time that’s good for you – day or evening.
