Couples Counseling


BY TRULY UNDERSTANDING YOUR PARTNER, YOU CAN ACHIEVE LASTING CHANGE

Many times, couples become caught in negative spirals of interaction that slowly chip away at the foundation of their love, leaving them confused, angry or shut down.
Emotion focused couples therapy (EFT) is a structured process that helps you better understand your own and your partner’s emotional responses and needs and learn how to relate in more a heartfelt way. 

In our work together, we will focus on really feeling what your partner experiences and recognizing their pain and vulnerability. As you gain that understanding and move towards your partner, you will learn how to express your deepest fears and needs, often in new and powerful ways that draw your partner towards you, not away from you. 

Just as importantly, EFT will help you control negative interactions and spirals that create pain and distance between you and your partner. Gradually, you will be able to shape positive responses that create a secure bond. Out of this more secure place, you can then begin to find solutions to old problems and experience a deeper and richer connection with your partner.

EFT is an extensively validated and effective approach to couples counseling. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.

WHAT COUPLES SAY ABOUT ME

“The way that you guided us through the EFT sessions was just what the doctor ordered to help us recapture our commitment to each other and restore the peace and harmony that our relationship had been lacking. Our love for each other had taken a back seat to petty arguments and button pushing, which often led to explosive results. You brought us back from the edge and helped us develop a framework for enhanced communication and mutual satisfaction.”

- J & L

“We are in love with each other again, at the same time. We are a positive example that, even working through very tough times (two years), if you really love each other, it can be worked out. Patience, love and really listening to the other - with a lot of your help - kept us together and happy again.”

- D & K
