Mending Hearts: Healing From Addictive & Exploitative Relationships With Marissa Boyce

During this session of #MentalHealthMonday Marissa will provide participants with tools, information, and resources to:
  • Better understand their own personal connections between family of origin and childhood/attachment wounding and love addiction patterns.
  • Work towards healing these attachment wounds and patterns.
  • Discern between an exploitative/narcissistic (maladaptive) relationship and a healthier (adaptive) one.
“When we are healing and learning from our unhealthy relationship patterns, sometimes the best thing to do is to be alone for a while. To learn to be alone so we can appreciate our own company. But this can’t last forever. We need healthy, secure attachments to build a template for the dating relationships we want to create! Find a dating buddy, build a strong relationship with the safest person in your life, feel safe to make mistakes! We need to heal together.” – Marissa Boyce
Join us LIVE for a Q & A session following the discussion.


Marissa Boyce is a self-proclaimed “healthy love” activist. She is a counsellor, educator, and facilitator who has degrees in Psychology, Counselling and Education. Marissa has worked as an educator and now a counsellor for youth and adults and has lived and worked in Canada, the US and Italy. She is also a person in recovery who has almost 15 years of sobriety from drugs and alcohol.

Marissa currently works as a trauma, addictions and relationship therapist with families, groups, couples and individuals in beautiful Victoria, BC as well as online with people all over Canada. She specializes in helping people understand, investigate, and re-pattern their relationship histories and has extensive knowledge and experience in narcissistic abuse and recovery from codependency and love addiction. 

Marissa runs online courses to teach people how to date in a healthier way and hopes to spread the word about “slow dating” and healthy love. When she is not involved in learning and teaching about love, sex and relationships, Marissa loves riding her motorcycle (really fast), speaking Italian (poorly) and spending time in nature.
