Are you feeling unloved and alone in your relationship? Do you long for closeness and connection, but end up stuck in the same old conflicts? Has there been a breakdown in communication, intimacy, or sex? Are you having trouble healing and rebuilding trust following an affair?
We all want to feel safe, secure, and understood in our closest relationships. We look to our partners to be reassured, know that we matter, and find safety in our relationship. When the connection is lost, it jeopardizes our sense of security.
What Goes Wrong in Relationships?
Distressed couples get caught up in negative patterns. They describe what is happening to them rather than what they are feeling and needing from each other.
They are often engaged in reactive anger and unable to listen to each other’s emotions.
Couples therapy can help
In our therapy sessions, I use techniques to help you better understand yourself and your partner. You can each learn to understand your partner’s vulnerabilities and emotional needs so that you can be more supportive of each other.
My approach is based on EFT, a form of couple’s counseling that has seen the best and most lasting results.
Through our sessions together, you can expect to:
- Create a more fulfilling and nurturing relationship.
- Discover shared goals.
- Break negative patterns by making small but significant changes.
- Increase intimacy and respect.
- Increase satisfaction in and from the relationship.
- Develop honest and open communication.
You will learn how to manage challenges and disagreements without dissolving into a fight or hurtful interaction. The skills that you learn in therapy, the listening skills, and the empathy skills, will help you navigate the challenges that life and time present.
