Couple Therapy

Couple's Therapy

Sometimes couples get stuck not feeling heard or understood. This can contribute to feelings of loneliness or not being enough, leaving both feeling disconnected.

Emotionally Focused Therapy

With couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy. EFT is empirically based and has a 75% success rate, while couples therapy, in general, is 35% by an individually trained therapist and 66% if done by a marriage and family therapist. EFT brings understanding and logic to motions that you feel in your relationship. I create moments of secure attachment in the therapy office, which helps couples feel emotionally safe and like their partner is there for them.

Couple's Therapy Timeline

For informational purposes only. Individual plans may vary.

Couple's Therapy Assessment and De-escalation Phase

We identify the relational conflict issues between you and your partner. We identify the negative interaction cycle where these issues are expressed. We access attachment emotions underlying the position each partner takes in this cycle. We reframe the problem in terms of the relational dynamics, unacknowledged emotions, and attachment needs.
