The most vital parts of our being are the bonds that we have with the most important others in our lives. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I use EFT in both my work with couples and individuals.
Research has established that having secure relationships helps us to regulate our emotions, function better, and have a stronger sense of self. As human beings, we are “hard wired” biologically to be attached to others for our survival. This is as true in adults as it is in infants.
EFT is the most empirically validated form of couples’ therapy with 90 percent of couples reporting significant improvement and 3 out of 4 couples moving from distress to complete recovery. In my work with couples, I help partners feel closer through a deepened understanding of each other and how they misread each others’ behaviors in ways that create distance between them. EFT is so effective because it’s central focus is in helping the couple to strengthen the bond between them or even reestablish the closeness in their relationship by teaching them how to be more vulnerable, responsive, and attuned to each other.
Given my experience and training in EFT, I am more tuned into your relationship fears, needs, and yearnings as these arise for you. I hone in on and provide you with experiences to help you really explore and more fully develop your emotions around these relationship themes. My experience has been that when this happens therapy speaks to everyone on a much deeper level and is quite healing.
