There is nothing like the feeling of safety that comes from a deep and trusting connection in a relationship. There is a foundational security in knowing that no matter what happens, you are with someone who has your back, and you have theirs. If your relationship is struggling to find that kind of connection it can be devastating. This feeling is no accident. We are born wired for connection with others, and when we feel an emotional distance from our partner it can trigger a deep sense of fear and other strong emotions.
The good news is that it does not matter how much distress your relationship is in, therapy can help. In my practice I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to transform communication and create safety and connection in relationships. EFT is the gold standard approach for couples therapy with over 30 years of outcome research. Over 90% of couples who go through EFT significantly improve their relationship, and 75% are able to maintain their improvement over two years. EFT helps couples to interrupt their cycles of distress and disconnection, and prevent the same argument scripts from replaying over and over again. EFT helps us to be seen and understood deeply by our partner, creating the kind of care and trust we long for.
I strongly believe in the power of couples therapy because it creates opportunities in the moment to heal our hurts, and reconnect with one another. If this is what you’re looking for, reach out for an appointment today, I’m looking forward to meeting with you soon.
