About Me

As co-founder of Couple Enrichment Inc., I have been a marriage and couples co-therapist in private practice with my husband David Rubinstein, MA, for over 14 years. Couples seeking our services may feel that they are in an emotional disconnect. They may struggle with a lack of intimacy, differences in sexual desire, escalated arguing, or infidelity. Or they may have difficulty coping as parents, relating to in-laws or dealing with elder care. Our private "Couple Intensive Retreats" give clients the time to reconnect, and to create safety and security within their couple unit. As a husband-and-wife co-therapy team, David and I understand the emotional challenges inherent in any relationship. We set the stage so that our clients can rebuild trust, gain deeper understandings, and develop new skills that will help them face life's stresses together. We have recently integrated into our practice a dynamic counselling approach that has been very effective: Dr. Stan Tatkin's Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy® (see "Wired for Love"). While I work mainly as a marriage and couples co-therapist, I maintain an Individual Counselling practice for women seeking relationship or trauma-related counselling. I work in office, but also provide telephone and videoconferencing sessions for some clients. I have provided individual and group counselling as well for women survivors of sexual, physical and emotional abuse at Family Transition Place in Orangeville. Prior to becoming a couples therapist, I was a career counsellor. I presented workshops on communications skills, parenting skills and career planning, and have facilitated group programs for recovering alcoholics. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Manitoba, and an M.A. in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I am a certified Life Skills Coach, Journal Writing Instructor, and Myers Briggs Certified Practitioner (Myers Briggs Type Indicator™).
