Couples

Build a Satisfying and Loving Relationship! 

We long for connection to an intimate partner. We devote our time and energy to one person and count on fulfillment because we are in love. Our innate tendency as humans is toward secure and long-lasting attachment.

Though you feel you have found your soul-mate, you also may have experienced a rift or betrayal in your relationship bringing about feelings of anger, hurt or confusion. You wonder whether your connection as a couple can possibly be repaired. 

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, is a well-researched, highly effective method of relationship counseling that helps you and your partner shift the way you understand and interact with each other. You will learn to acknowledge your emotions, and express to each other your desires as well as your hurts. You will begin to heal your relationship injuries and diminish your relationship distress. You will begin to open yourselves to re-establishing an emotional connection and begin to rekindle the intimacy within your relationship.

 

About EFT

EFT was developed by Dr. Susan Johnson as a method of working with couples who are experiencing relationship challenges. EFT therapy involves working as a team; you, your partner, and me, to uncover the feelings beneath the unhealthy interactions within your relationship. 

As you begin to understand these behavior-reaction cycles, you can diminish the destructive interactions that are getting in the way of deep connection. You will grow to trust that when you turn to your partner for the desired, loving bond, your partner will be there for you. 

You may choose private, weekly couple sessions or you may consider attending my intensive workshop.

EFT is based on the observation that our most important relationships can trigger strong feelings. And relationships can be both a source of massive stress and pain - or a source of great comfort and joy. EFT helps couples learn to deal with these feelings together - in a positive way.
