Follow Me



Marilyn Barnicke BelleghemAsking for help with a relationship can be difficult.

Marital therapy can help you discover ways to enhance your marriage through improved communication so intimacy can be increased and long term goals can be shared. Some couples want help to discover if they want to save their relationship. When appropriate, I assist couples to separate with dignity,  parent children to maximize long term positive effects and maintain extended family relationships through the process of divorce.  

Family therapy deals with issues in extended relationships across generations.

I actively incorporate stress management, conflict resolution, goal setting and communication skill building into my work. I help clients increase their self awareness, enhance their self esteem and accept responsibility to create balance and harmony in their lives so they are able to work toward creating the life they want. Practical solutions are suggested.

I only accept new clients by referral.

  • Consultations are based on a fee of $200.00 per hour plus 13% HST.
  • Missed appointments are billed if 24 hours notice is not given.
  • Consultations are available by appointment only. You must have a referral.
  • Individuals, couples, groups and families are seen in Burlington, Ontario. Special arrangements can be made for me to meet in other locations, however travel time and transportation costs will apply.

You can find help by learning the skills I often use in marriage and family therapy that are blended into my easy to read self help memoirs. I share my life experiences and travel adventures so readers can see how I;

  • cope with unexpected change,
  • deal with marital and family conflict,
  • recover from issues resulting from being an adult child of an alcoholic, 
  • survive legal bullying,
  • parent my three children into adulthood,
  • make my way in the workplace,
  • build intimacy,
  • overcome my fear of solo travel,
  • recuperate after financial abuse,
  • and much more.

My books are available online at Quest Publishing in hard copy and digital formats.
