Couples Therapy

I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.

Emotionally Focused Therapy - founded by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg, draws upon attachment theory which asserts that humans are hardwired for strong emotional bonds with others.

According to EFT, couples have relationship problems when they’ve “experienced emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments".  This leads to negative cycles that often include criticism and anger (among other emotions and reactions). The aim of EFT is to help couples overcome these negative cycles, re-establish their connection, and strengthen their emotional bond. 

Together, we will work to uncover the patterns in your relationship that lead to conflict, distancing and defensiveness.  Simultaneously, we will create new ways of communicating your needs and understanding your partner's needs.  When we can attune to our own needs and the needs of others, we are able to achieve a level of emotional safety that opens the door for greater trust, security, intimacy and love.
