In sessions I work with the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT for couples) model. Based on bonding theory, EFT can help you build better and stronger connections with your partner. The focus is on your in-the-moment feelings and experience, and on the ongoing “dances” between you and your partner or spouse. This provides a powerful and effective way to work towards feeling heard and understood.
A goal of Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples is to clear the air of “emotional contamination”, and to create an emotional climate conducive to getting your needs and wishes met. Using the empirically-validated EFT model as a “map”, I assist you and your partner to feel closer and more connected, and to feel heard, validated and understood. In our therapy sessions, I guide you through the often rocky, emotionally dangerous, and confusing terrain of intimate personal relating.
