Couples seek therapy because they feel disconnected from each other. The distress caused by the disconnection affects the couples daily lives and is strongly associated with depression and anxiety. Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is an approach to couples therapy designed to help couples create emotional safety between them. When the safety is increased, trust and openness between partners will also increase. EFT is also designed to help couples learn how to reach for each other when partners need each other. Let me help you create the relationship you’ve always wanted.
