Couples who seek counselling support will find that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation that enables them to address their immediate problems and clearly understand how to alleviate their current issues. Wade is well versed in couples-based treatment modalities, including the Gottman Couple Method, systemic, and strategic-based therapies. Wade has worked with many different types of couples, including those from interracial backgrounds, the LGBTQ2S+ community, and those in polyamorous relationships.
Couples seek counselling for many reasons. Wade has worked with couples who are encountering major life changes, including premarital support or the desire to start a family, the loss of friendship and intimacy between the couple, ineffective communication, infidelity, addiction, mental-health challenges, money stressors, and support on their journey through separation and divorce. Regardless of the couple’s needs, Wade helps them to make the necessary improvement in their lives by changing maladaptive patterns and enhancing their resources and coping strategies. The duration of each treatment session is typically 50 minutes, but this time can vary depending upon the couple’s needs. Clients who require additional support might wish to book a 75-minute appointment.
