Whether you are in crisis, working to build a new life together, or simply hoping to improve your communication, couples therapy can be an invaluable tool to help you move forward.
My approach to couples therapy draws on Dr. Sue Johnson’s emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT), which is based on the notion that secure, lasting couples must understand and meet each other’s deeper emotional needs. As we examine the behavioral patterns and cycles you and your partner experience, we can discover where exactly each of you is feeling unsafe, and where your emotional needs are being ignored. We can improve your communication and emotional attunement toward one another, and change old patterns for good.
