“Learn to reach for the people you love. Nothing grows people like love. When we are loved, we blossom.”

Couples Therapy

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a highly effective, non-blaming approach that helps couples shift from distress and conflict to connection and safety. Therapy provides you with a space to learn about your conflicts, identify and express your needs, and cultivate new ways to connect and interact in loving ways.

I’m here to help you transform your relationship from familiar cycles that lead to disconnection and conflict to new patterns of trust, safety, connection, and understanding. EFT is designed to help couples connect in meaningful and deep ways.

I will help you to:

Identify your patterns that increase distress and conflict and then guide you in increasing connection, honest interactions, safety with each other, closeness, intimacy, and feeling understood

identify your strengths so we can build on them and use them as something to stand on during our work
identify the negative cycles that you get trapped in
rebuild your friendship and sexual intimacy
identify your communication styles so you can learn new skills to effectively communicate with each other
create new shared meaning
create a new sense of secure functioning

My approach is grounded in the science and comprehensive theory of adult love and attachment. We are wired to seek proximity and a safe haven with others, and this is especially true with our partners. Working within an EFT framework in couples therapy allows you to build secure attachment bonds that create the solid, stable foundation of your relationship.

I love working with couples to help bring reconnection while creating a fulfilling, loving relationship.
