Couples therapy can be very intimidating for a couple who is having problems. I have observed that using the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) model for couples, I have helped couples reconnect with each other and stop blaming each other for their conflicts. EFT focuses on the negative cycle that occurs between couples and places the blame for problems on the cycle itself, rather than on either individual in the couple.

The goal of couples therapy is to reconnect couples. We do this together, taking control of the negative cycle that has been created between you. I will guide you to explore your feelings and needs more openly, and together, you and your partner can rebuild a foundation of trust and intimacy.

One of the best things about EFT is that it has years of research showing its effectiveness on couples. Studies show that 90% of troubled couples who complete EFT treatment report significant improvement in their communication and connection. Additionally, about 75% of couples report “recovery” and never again classify themselves as a troubled couple after completing EFT. Couples who have completed EFT report that the benefits obtained during the therapy have persisted with them even 5-10 years after completion of the therapy.
