You and your partner are struggling right now…
You keep getting in the same fights over and over again.
You’re exhausted from the fighting and withdrawal you seem to keep getting in.
You feel stuck and you’re not sure what to do to make things work again.
You worry that what you once had is gone forever.
In couples therapy, I will help you and your partner learn ways to de-escalate conflict about commonly debated topics and help you express deeper feelings and needs often covered up by such conflicts. The goal is for you and your partner to be able to identify and discuss these with greater compassion, thus creating the opportunity for a deeper bond.
I use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to guide you and your partner towards closer connection. EFT involves identifying the negative cycles you keep getting caught in and using this knowledge to overcome this pattern, creating lasting change in your relationship and in your life. It is a highly researched and successful modality geared towards finding or restoring the attachment bonds that we have formed with our partner, thus finding the secure connection we long for in our relationships. Research shows that 70-75% of couples recover from their distress and 85-90% show significant improvements!
I look forward to collaborating and working with you on getting unstuck. Contact me to learn more about how I can help.
