Relationship
Therapy

Is your relationship suffering due to stress, communication problems, co-parenting, life-transitions, emotional disconnection, infidelity or intimacy concerns? Couples therapy can be an effective resource while you’re going through a specific life event but it can also simply be about strengthening your relationship through professional guidance as you move through life together.

I take a compassionate, collaborative, and skill-based approach to couples therapy. I practice Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), an evidence-based  intervention and short-term structured approach to psychotherapy, with the goal of creating a more secure emotional attachment between couples. Emotion Focused Therapy has been demonstrated to be helpful for couples with a variety of problems, including  post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, frequent arguments, a history of infidelity, and chronic health conditions. EFT helps couples identify their negative patterns of  interacting  (pursue/withdraw)  and assists each partner in identifying and expressing their more vulnerable  feelings and needs and communicate their needs in a way that creates connection.

The need for
secure attachment
is seen as a life-long emotional need, beginning in infancy
and persisting through adulthood.
