Dear Readers and Clients

I have been working with couples, individuals, families and groups since 1991. (yikes!) I bring so much experience and passion to my work. I feel grateful to have a job where I can help others have extraordinary relationships and lives. Thank you.

For over 15 years now, I have been deep in the study of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Individuals. The work is beautiful and easily integrated into one’s life and relationship.

The Work

The most common issues

Marital Distress is the single most common reason for seeking therapy. It undermines family functioning and is strongly associated with depression, anxiety disorders, and alcoholism. EFT for couples offers a comprehensive theory of adult love and attachment, as well as a process for healing distressed relationships.

We can heal the wounds of infidelity. Betrayal hurts. It usually involves some form of deception and can increase the sense of threat and uncertainty. The EFT work goes deeply into the repair of these injuries. We work on creating a new corrective experience of safe relatedness and secure connection. The attachment injury is healed, trust is rebuilt and often it feels like a new marriage with a very secure bond.

Some couples withdraw, usually from not wanting to engage in attack/attack or blame/blame kinds of conversations. It is coming from a desire to keep the connection. What happens though is the distancing leads to a feeling of distress for both partners. Sometimes both partners are burnt out and discouraged and then retreat. In EFT, we identify the pattern and get to the deeper emotions. We help couples have bonding conversations.

There are a number of important topics to discuss before marriage in order to have a strong foundation. The way you discuss some of these topics is very important. It is great to see where you begin to disconnect in having any of these discussions. Again, every couple has a pattern of the way they disconnect. It is important to the success of the relationship to be able to have difficult conversations, to understand and be able to interrupt your pattern of disconnect and to have bonding conversations to bring you back to connection and resolution. We address the important topics and we address how disconnection can happen and how to stay connected in any of these important conversations.

Our closest relationships can provide the context where we can get in touch with past traumas. We work on promoting positive coping skills and individual growth. Our closest relationships can be a crucial element in working through multidimensional problems and PTSD. We address and work through traumas in the EFT couples work.
