You often feel like you're shouting into the wind, and no one is listening. What does it take to have your inner voice be heard and respected? It helps to get out of the echo chamber of our own heads and find someone to bounce ideas off of. This first step is truly the hardest, but it pays off quickly! Reaching out for help can be scary, and procrastination so easy to justify - but taking that first step, and resolving to change your life, starts paying off right away. When you're clear about what you're thinking and feeling - and why - it's much easier to know what to do next. Therapy can help you do that, and you won't feel alone.

"Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of up and downs. It's a journey of discovery - there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair"- Rick Warren. We all struggle with past or present situations that can get in the way of us living our lives wholeheartedly and that have an impact on the connection with oneself and others. Whenever you are going through a difficult time and you are confused about what is your next step, connecting with a trained therapist can be very helpful.

First, know that I am here to help you. There are important questions that you may have about your relationship and about yourself that relate to COVID 19, and some that have been in your life before this crisis. How can I make sure that sheltering in place with my partner doesn't overwhelm our relationship? What can you learn about yourself under this condition? Am I tolerant enough? Does my partner irritate me more now than before or am I discovering a new breadth of his or her functioning that I didn't know was there? Do we help each other deal with family and couple problems or do they bring out selfishness and defensiveness?

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. New York 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.
