It is no secret that change is difficult. If it were easy, we would all do it in the snap of a finger. Many people struggling emotionally share the common belief that their obstacles need to be dealt with alone. Dr. and author Brené Brown wrote, "We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to." It can be vulnerable to accept help, but it is often the necessary step and support needed to help you create lasting change in your life.

You wake up it’s another day. Internally, you’re met with many emotions. The pain of yesterday, the joy of today, and the uncertainty of tomorrow. The unpredictable rhythms of life can take a toll on your mind, body, and soul. Trauma, unforeseen loss, financial problems, and relational stress are just a few facets of life that can ignite depression, anxiety, grief, uncontrollable anger, or a loss of identity. It may manifest itself as an unexplained sadness that you can’t seem to escape, an intrusive thought that you can’t erase, or an excruciating knot in your stomach that medicine doesn’t seem to alleviate.

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. Chicago 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.
