Relationship Therapy for Couples

Attractive couple cuddling at the beachI am a trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is one of the fastest growing evidenced-based approaches to couples therapy. Developed by Dr. Susan Johnson and Les Greenberg, EFT provides a well-researched road map for helping couples grow closer and resolve relationship distress.  Grounded in John Bowlby’s Attachment Theory, EFT combines humanistic psychology and family systems theory. EFT provides the necessary tools to rebuild trust and safety and replenish loving feelings in your relationship. EFT provides a safe haven in which to heal from old wounds and helps you reconnect with your partner and form healthier communication patterns. EFT is an empirically validated structured approach to couples therapy EFT research shows that 70-75% of couples move from marital distress to recover and approximately 90% of couples show significant improvement.

In a safe environment, I will help you and your partner renew and strengthen your relationship to move toward the relationship that you desire.

I believe that it is important for you to feel that working together will be a good fit and meet your needs for couples counseling. To set up a free 30-45 minute No-Obligation Consultation/Visit call me at 952-215-5208.
