Couples Therapy

All   relationships   go   through   changes   and   bumps   over   time.   Major   crises   such   as   infidelity,   loss,   or   lack   of   passion shift   the   dynamics   of   the   relationship,   where   both   parties   need   to   adapt   or   risk   stagnation   and   possible   break-up. Couples    Therapy    can    be    very    effective    in    helping    the    couple    move    forward    from    discord,    pain,    and disappointment.   It   can   create   lasting   meaningful   change   in   the   relationship   as   both   of   you   start   to   discover   the pockets of emotion and humanity that originally attracted you to your partner. Emotionally   Focused   Couples   Therapy,   which   is   the   approach   that   I   use,   has   emerged   alongside   the   science   on adult   attachment   and   bonding.   It   has   a   strong   research   background   and   a   90%   success   rate   for   couples   who   are motivated for recovery. In   this   therapy,   we   will   set   goals   that   are   unique   to   your   relationship   problem.   Our   overarching   goal   will   be   to   shift your   negative   interactional   style   and   create   a   new,   more   positive   cycle   of   interaction.   We   work   towards   replacing fear, dread, mistrust, and pain with a secure bond that re-establishes your trust in your partner.
