I am an Emotionally Focused Therapist, and this is the work I do.
Conflict is a part of every vital relationship. If you are suffering in your relationship, it’s not because you have differences. In most cases, it’s because the way couples automatically protect themselves from being hurt - with silence, defensiveness or harsh words – builds walls between them, in an escalating cycle of frustration and misunderstanding. When even your best efforts at reconnecting just seem to exacerbate your mutual feelings of disconnection, it may be time to shine a healing light on these interactions and the hurt places that fuel them. This is the path of Emotionally Focused Therapy.

The experiences we move through in life are complex; the balance of thought, emotion, and sensation is delicate. Life experiences create a pattern that we will unconsciously replay, often leading to symptoms and suffering. In order to break an unhealthy pattern, we must first become aware of the traumas, influences, and beliefs that create this paradigm. Through self-awareness, we gain insight into our true nature, develop the ability to self-regulate, and become empowered to create a new lifestyle. True recovery is attaining and maintaining a lifestyle that emphasizes a positive relationship with yourself.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Ventura Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
