Are the arguments getting out of control with your partner?
Are you considering whether or not to end your relationship?
Is it clear that the communication between you and your spouse is broken?
Has cheating or infidelity undermined trust?
If you answered yes to any of the above, I look forward to helping you make positive changes in your partnership.
In my work with couples, I utilize a therapeutic approach called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), developed by Sue Johnson. EFT is based on attachment theory and its efficacy is supported by rigorous research. In EFT, it's not each partner in the relationship that is at fault but the pattern of interaction. In session, we'll identify negative cycles and introduce new ways of relating that feel organic and replicable outside the therapist's office. Ultimately, the goal of therapy is to repair and strengthen a secure and lasting bond between partners.
Couples counseling typically consists of 60-minute sessions met weekly. Sometimes, you may have a partner who is unwilling or not quite ready to engage in couples therapy. In these cases, I'm happy to meet with you individually to do the work you can do while you gently encourage your partner to take this leap of faith and hope together. Treatment specialization includes (but is not limited to):
Resolving Conflicts Peacefully
Positive Communication and Listening
Art of Compromise
Making sense of a breakup, separation, or divorce
Engaging in a loving and kind relationship can be harder than any of us would like to admit. When it comes to matters of the heart, it can be incredibly difficult to sift through conflicting emotions in order to make positive change. We will work together to find the clarity you (and your partner) need to resolve the issues that are keeping you from having the relationship you want and deserve.
