New Westminster, British Columbia
I’m Andre, a Master’s level counsellor, therapist, coach and consultant for intimate relationships.
For established relationships which both partners want to improve, I do Couples Therapy (otherwise known as Marriage Counselling). When either partner is unsure or doubtful about remaining in or working on the relationship, I offer Discernment Counselling, a short-term process for the two of you to gain clarity and confidence about your choices for the future.
For growing relationships, I do premarital or early Relationship Counselling.
If you are not partnered, you want to see me alone, or your partner does not want to participate, I can work with you on relationship matters as an individual.
Unlike general counsellors, I don’t reduce my focus by also taking on individual mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, etc. I am more able to help when such concerns are in response to relationship problems or are manageable background factors. However, when they are primary or significant, I may treat the relationship and refer individuals to other specialists for simultaneous care. This way, you get the best service for all your concerns.
I will help you discover, understand, and practice how to repair, strengthen, grow, and preserve your love, so that you can have the most fulfilling life possible. We can do so much together to give you and your partner the happiness you each deserve.
