The therapeutic approach and training I have as a couples therapist is as an Emotionally Focused Couples therapy. I am currently in the process of becoming certified as an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) couples therapist. My objective as a couples therapist is to assist you in learning how to recognize and change patterns of relating to each other that have been keeping you stuck, frustrated and confused. You will realize how these "relational dances" have been preventing you from deepening the connection in your relationship and often end up leaving you feeling more distant and disconnected. Relationship/couples counseling has the potential to be the most powerful and effective therapy for both partners as individuals and the relationship.
I see my part as a "relationship process consultant".This approach provides you with the resources to be able to recognized and transcend old relational ways of relating. If you feel emotionally stuck, unsafe,disconnected,or empty in your most intimate and important relationships whether it is with your partner, best friend, or sibling Emotionally Focused therapy has the essential components to facilitate heal and transformation.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is a leading approach to couples therapy. It is one of the most scientifically researched and empirically validated therapies available for couples therapy.
