Kerena Lam RCC

Image

People typically think there is one reality, but actually there are two realities between a couple. We think our own reality is based on facts but actually it's based on perceptions. Therefore, it's important to understand both of those realities, and see if there can be a mutual understanding and respect of each other's experience. In couples counselling, Kerena (she/her) will help you gain more awareness of what's working and not working in the relationship, what are the underlying needs that are potentially not being addressed, and find shared meaning together again. Therapy will deal with couple conflict and resolution, but also build and repair friendship and love within the relationship.

Kerena is certified in Gottman’s Couples Therapy and provide couples counselling for those in monogamous, non-monogamous, polyamorous, and kink relationships. Kerena is also certified in Adlerian Parenting (also known as the STEP approach to parenting), and offers counselling to parents/caregivers.
