Couples often complain that their partner doesn’t listen to them, doesn’t show consideration, or doesn’t show them they are loved. Couples often feel judged or disconnected from their partner. Sometimes they question why they are still together. Many couples either don’t talk to each other when they are upset or seem to argue all the time. They may feel trapped in a pattern that keeps repeating and they don’t know how to get it to stop.
Couples seek therapy for these reasons and others. All couples experience relationship challenges and conflict. And, all couples go through trying times. Yet there are times when a person, a couple, needs help because they just can’t find the solution on their own. And, their relationship no longer feels like a “safe” place for them to be with each other.
I provide a safe space where the two individuals in the relationship, both partners, feel understood and heard. And, by better understanding the bonds between them, the triggers and patterns that exist in their relationship, how they communicate with each other, the truth about their potential “disconnect”, they can go on to potentially create a more fulfilling, intimate relationship.
Using several different approaches, including EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, I help couples see their repeating and negative patterns/cycles clearly; reconnect with each other at a deeper level; heal any wounds; and be able to express who they really are with their partner in a strengthened and more connected relationship. EFT is an evidence-based therapy that has been proven to help a large percentage of couples.
With this and other processes, I can help couples:
Change negative patterns relating to conflict
Enhance the ability to communicate and really hear each other
Increase intimacy and feelings of connection
Address sexuality and sexual issues in their relationship
Handle parenting issues
Deal with whether they should stay in the relationship or go
