In couples counseling, the focus is on reconnection. So often in relationships, we lose sight of what brought us together in the first place. We become distant, confused, and lonely. When working with couples, I will help build back the trust, intimacy and mutual support that may have been lost.
Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a therapy modality created and tested by Sue Johnson in the 1980s. Using this approach as a guide, my aim is to get away from the superficial fights about who left the lights on, to get at what is really happening underneath the surface.
The goal is to change critical questions such as "why do you have to be on your phone all the time!?" to statements such as "I feel really disconnected from you when you are on your phone around me, which can make me feel lonely and unimportant".
Communicating about how we feel instead of hiding behind the protection of blame & criticism can be tough. My mission is to help you see the power of vulnerability, and get back that connection that every human secretly craves
