couples therapy

I work with couples using Emotionally-Focused Therapy for Couples, an empirically-validated approach based on adult attachment theory. This approach helps couples identify their negative cycles, the places where they get "stuck" time and time again. 

Communication, compassion and relationship stability are improved. Ultimately, couples are able to move away from the negative cycle and interact in a more loving and effective way.

Please see the "Resources" section for links to more information about EFT for Couples.
