Is Therapy Right for you?
Seeking and maintaining close contact with loved ones is a life-long need. It is only human to yearn for a relationship that feels like a safe haven. Yet many couples feel disconnected and find themselves in repetitive struggles that lead to anger and resentment. Even if they want to come close, they can't.
Couples often find that therapy helps them stay connected through life's challenging moments. Adjusting to events such as the birth of a child, job change, illness, retirement or infertility can cause a disruption for many partners.
Therapy is also helpful for couples in crisis. This includes those who are suffering from loss of intimacy, experiencing high levels of conflict, recovering from infidelity, or partners whose relationship is characterized by poor communication.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a proven approach developed by Sue Johnson Ed.D. that outlines the roadmap to a more secure and satisfying relationship. As an EFT Certified therapist, I can help you slow down, recognize your negative pattens, and restructure your bond. This will allow you to reach for each other in new healthy ways and respond to each other with empathy and tenderness.
In this environment, couples can learn to work together to heal wounds and create a greater sense of trust and connection. EFT is distinct from other couples therapy models in that there is no focus on resolution of content issues. Instead the goal is to promote safety and emotional engagement and ensure that partners can readily respond in a reassuring way to the universal questions of "Do I matter?" and "Can I count on you?"
