My Clients

I provide relationship and marital counselling as well as individual counselling to those who believe that “happily ever after” is possible outside of fairy tales.

In Person

I see clients in my Edmonton, Alberta office. Day, evening and weekend appointments are available.

Telephone and Online Marital and Relationship Therapy

Telephone and online counselling offer all the help you need with complete privacy and convenience.

You may wish to have phone or online relationship therapy sessions with me if:

  • You are not from the Edmonton, Alberta area.
  • You are traveling, on vacation or away on business.
  • You have limitations due to an illness or disability.
  • Any other circumstances prevent you from coming to my office.

Telephone and online marital counselling have the added bonuses of:

  • no traffic or parking problems
  • no need to be concerned about your appearance
  • no need for a babysitter
  • working with a counsellor in the comfort of your own home or office

All you need is a telephone or Internet connection, and a quiet time to talk or chat.

“Jean is amazing. We were separated and had been living hundred of miles
apart for over a year, so we needed a counsellor who would be willing to work
with us without the benefit of face-to-face sessions. We had no need to worry
because Jean rose to the challenge. Through creative use of conference calls,
email, take-home exercises and web resources, Jean helped us navigate through
the damaged and troubled parts of our marriage to discover the ways in which
we still loved each other. She challenged us confront the changes we needed
to make, and helped us regain our confidence in one-another. We are back
together and we owe it to Jean’s creativity, patience, and uncanny ability to
get to the real heart of the problem. We endorse Jean wholeheartedly.” ~S.D.

Length of Relationship Therapy Session

I generally meet with individuals and couples for a 1½ hour initial session followed by one hour sessions thereafter.

Length of Therapy

Length of marital and relationship therapy differs for each client. It is difficult to initially predict how many sessions will be needed.  I will be better able to discuss the probable number of sessions after we have explored and gained some background and insight into the problems you are facing, usually by the end of the first session. If you are interested in doing intensive work to increase your chances of living “happily ever after” additional sessions may be required.

Public Speaking

I offer talks on a variety of topics including: forgiveness, conflict resolution, and self-esteem.
If you are interested in having me speak for your group or organization please contact me and we can discuss what I can do for you.

During a ladies conference, I attended a mini workshop on forgiveness offered by Jean Mackenzie.  I always had a misconception about forgiving….I thought I had a problem with forgiving ………that when you forgave someone all the bad & uncertain feelings left and that was the end of it forever.  Not so with me . . . I figured I was not forgiving because all the feelings of frustration and anger would return now & then.  I learned from Jean that this indeed was normal and to forgive does not mean you forget.  From time to time feelings may bubble up inside you, but you have indeed forgiven, it is the act that is important.


Call today for a free, no obligation, 20 minute phone consultation . We will discuss your problems and together decide how I might be able to help you through marital or relationship therapy.  I look forward to hearing from you
