“There Is No Greater Source Of Joy And Meaning In Our Lives Than Our Relationships With Others.”

- Ester Perel

Healthy relationships are incredibly important to our emotional well-being and happiness. They single-handedly improve the quality of our lives. Intimate relationships also require work and skillful attention to be successful and fulfilling – and most of us are rarely taught or shown how to do that.

Our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors sometimes get in the way of our connection with our partner. Communication breakdowns, feelings of rejection or abandonment, and unresolved conflicts can lead to feelings of hurt, anger, and disconnection in our relationships.

Couples therapy can be an incredibly powerful tool for helping partners explore, restore, and revitalize their emotional bond. It helps couples achieve improved communication, foster a deeper level of intimacy, create a more satisfying sex life, and build a more secure connection.

“Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) Is A Short-Term, Systematic, And Tested Intervention To Reduce Distress In Adult Love Relationships And Create More Secure Attachment Bonds.”

- Dr. Sue Johnson

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is a highly effective form of couples therapy that focuses on the emotional connections between partners, helping them to identify and change negative patterns of interaction, and promoting greater intimacy and closeness.

Through EFT, I help couples learn how to communicate more effectively, express their needs and emotions in a constructive way, and deepen their understanding and appreciation for one another. By working together in therapy, couples develop the tools and skills they need to create a stronger, more loving, and more fulfilling partnership.

“I Am Encouraging You To Be Courageous, Look Hard, And Identify Your Usual Response. It’s The One That Pops Out Before You Have Taken A Breath. This Is The Response That Can Trap You In A Vicious Cycle Of Disconnection With The Person You Love Best.”

- Dr. Sue Johnson

Safe Space For Exploration And Sharing

One of the primary ways in which couples therapy helps rebuild emotional bonds between partners is by providing a space for each partner to explore their emotions and feelings, in a safe and supportive environment. During our couples therapy sessions, you will explore and identify your attachment needs and feelings and learn to openly and honestly share how your needs are or are not met by your partner.

As a couples therapist, I work closely with couples going through relationship challenges to help them identify their emotional needs and desires and develop strategies to overcome communication issues to foster connection. This can involve exploring past experiences, revealing negative emotions that take a toll on the emotional health of the relationship, identifying triggers for negative patterns of interaction, and implementing new practices for responding to one another’s needs and emotions.

Guidance To Identify Your Emotional Needs And Desires

Tools To Revitalize Any Type Of Romantic Relationship

Couples therapy is inclusive and LGBTQ+ friendly as it works with all gender identities and sexual orientations. It focuses on the unique needs and challenges of every couple. Whether you are a couple questioning an open relationship or trying to establish the necessary boundaries in a polyamorous relationship, couples therapy can help you and your partner deepen your emotional connection, improve communication, and build a more satisfying and committed relationship.

Do you keep having the same fight over and over again, stuck in the same depressing loop of relational issues? Maybe your connection and closeness to your partner have disappeared and you fear separation.

A committed relationship takes work, and most of us have not been taught how to be attuned to our partner’s needs, or how to even express our own needs. Research has shown that couples therapy can be highly beneficial in helping couples work through conflicts, (re)build trust, and develop effective communication between them.

We can get to the root of your current challenges, explore the cycles that keep you distant and disconnected, and develop better ways for you and your partner to communicate with each other. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or building a new one, living together or separately, or exploring a difficult transition, I can help. I work with couples of all genders and orientations who want to face their challenges with honesty and compassion and (re)build a secure base of connection and trust.

frequently asked questions

Emotionally focused couple therapy (EFT) is a powerful and highly effective approach to couples therapy that focuses on the emotional connections between partners. This type of therapeutic intervention is based on the idea that our emotions are at the core of our relationships, and that by understanding and working with these emotions, couples can create a deeper, more meaningful connection with one another.

EFT fundamentally works to change negative patterns of interaction that keep you and your partner stuck in conflict and disconnection. EFT is a structured approach that involves identifying the negative patterns of interaction causing problems in your relationship, managing negative emotions, promoting greater emotional safety and trust, accessing new ways of communicating and responding to one another’s needs and emotions, and creating a plan for maintaining your emotional connection and strengthening your relationship.

EFT is a short-term form of psychotherapy, typically starting with a commitment to 8 sessions, and can go longer depending on the nature of the relationship and degree of distress. Couples typically do see some improvements in their relationships relatively quickly. Studies have found that up to 90% of couples who undergo EFT experience significant long-lasting improvements in their relationships, even after therapy has ended.

EFT is suitable for all types of relationships: heterosexual or same-sex, married, pre-marital or dating, young or old, EFT meets the specific needs and challenges you and your partner face in your relationship.
