Effecting change in your relationship is hard, but therapy can help.
Experiencing problems within your intimate relationship can be very isolating and can take you further away from the one you love the most. Making the decision to work on your relationship may be the most important thing you ever do.
When I work with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, known as EFT. This way of working will allow each of you to share openly so you can give and get the love you need. For couples who experience the pain that is inherent in constant conflict, I will assist each of you in finding your way back to connection.
I am passionate about working with conflictual couples who desperately want to get along better. I treat relationships of all orientations through a sex positive perspective. I am LGBTQI-friendly and polyfriendly.
More about EFT and the process of therapy
EFT couples therapy assumes that interdependence is not only healthy, but essential in loving relationships. When our love is threatened, it is as if we are in actual physical danger. When we feel threatened, we develop strategies that protect us from threat. These strategies often become repetitive and we end up getting into the same fights over and over again. Sound familiar?
EFT couples therapy will help you identify the pattern of interacting in your loving bond and will show both you and your partner that these strategies make a lot of sense given the fear that is present when bonds are threatened. Once the pattern is identified, both partners will practice sharing unacknowledged emotions and fears that accompany their behavior in the pattern. This leads to feeling closer and better understood; allowing for both partners to be responsive to one another.
