Emotionally Focused Therapy

Emotionally Focused Therapy is:
  • a short-term approach (average 8 to 20 sessions)
  • empirically reliable
  • expands & reorganizes emotional responses
  • creates new interactions and new relational patterns
  • fosters the creation of a secure bond between partners

As a Marriage and Family therapist, I primarily use Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you discover what is happening behind the stress and anger that both you and your partner experience when there is marital discord. I can help you recognize your familiar patterns and negative interactions that send you into a downward spiral, and help you learn to respond to one another with less anger, and greater empathy and insight. With EFT, as a couple you will be able to create a safe emotional connection so that when emotional stress hits, you will be able to turn toward each other to support one another.
