" What do women want today? Do you realize that a woman's feminine identity is built on three generations of women in the family? Your identification with your mother, her identification with her mother and her's gets passed on from one woman to the next. Throughout the span of a women's life, a constant redefinition evolves. This depends on the totality of experiences in life, in love, in maternity, and at work. Your understanding of what you internalized from your mother's femaleness is key to your sense of autonomy. For a man, your sexual identity rest on the mother's father, and your own father for identification. Complicated."

The approach taken respects each person's individuality and the work is done in ways that are suited to each person's style and personality. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the unique needs of each person - for example, a person may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with a school or work transition, while another person may be seeking longer term treatment to understand longstanding emotional pain or a pattern of unsuccessful relationships."

"Everyone agrees life gets really hard sometimes, yet many of us grow up believing we should dig deep and tough it out. The fact is, sometimes we need a little guidance. Careers, children, relationships, friends, even exercise all compete for our limited energy and attention. No wonder we sometimes feel so overwhelmed and misunderstood that even loading the dishwasher can lead to a fight. But times of challenge--even those as painful as an affair--also offer us the chance to learn who we are and grow closer to those who matter most to us."

"Losing a loved one can be the most difficult time in your life. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. Grief often breaks a person completely from inside out. Grieving is hard work, you can get worn out, and feel battered. It can take a lot longer to work through grief than most people realize. People around you may think it’s helpful for you to not talk or cry or focus on your loss but actually this is just what people need to do. The goal is to not stay stuck, to move through it—and this is part of the process. Grief doesn’t get better by ignoring it and trying to ‘get over it.’ "

Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other.

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. McLean 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.
