Larry Lander, M.S.W., R.S.W.
For thirty years Larry has offered counselling to couples who need a safe and accepting place to share and resolve hard feelings. Hard feelings often emerge on a wide variety of subjects including money, in-laws, parenting, infidelity, addictions and sex. When these feelings remain kept inside largely unspoken, frustration turns to anger which turns to sadness which turns to hopelessness and a turning away from each other. It feels like a wall has been built between two people who love each other.
