restore loving relationships
- Are you feeling disconnected, dissatisfied, or disenchanted with your relationship?
- Do you feel stuck, or have difficulty finding common ground?
- Are you unable to connect with your partner in meaningful ways?
- Would you like to enrich your relationship, and rekindle the attraction you once had?
- Do you want to create a solid foundation for a lasting loving relationship before saying “I do”?
- Are you both willing to reflect on how your communication and attachment styles inhibit mutual understanding, love, compassion, empathy, and affection?
YOU CAN FEEL CLOSER AND LEARN TO LOVE MORE
You may feel like you should already have all the skills needed to make a relationship work. However, many of us grew up in households that did not model healthy, safe, secure, and loving interactions where real listening and real empathy guided those communications. Sometimes the hardest part of couple’s therapy is acknowledging the need for counsel and making the initial call to start.
We are wired to securely attach to a significant other, feel safe in emotional bonding, and enjoy a loving relationship. Positive and healthy human interactions are vital to our wellbeing. In couples counseling you will learn how to create a long-lasting harmonious way of being together. We identify the negative cycles and patterns that perpetuate the hurt and suffering, make sense of protective defenses, uncover the more vulnerable emotions and feelings, and safely have intimate and honest communication with more kindness, compassion, and empathy. All of which help build the kind of relationship you are seeking.
HOW RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING WORKS
My work with couples is grounded in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a holistic and structured approach to couple counseling. EFT is an empirically supported and evidence-based treatment model with roots in attachment theory. There is a substantial body of research validating the effectiveness of EFT that finds 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery, and approximately 90% show significant improvement.
You can transform your relationship, learn to resolve conflict, understand your differences, know how to emerge from negative cycles, emotionally attune and connect with your partner, restore intimacy, and engage in the loving and meaningful relationship you desire. I am here to help. Call for a free consultation today.
