Working from the approach known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I help couples rebuild the trust and safety necessary to have a deeper connection and more satisfying relationship.
I help clients recognize that they do not have to be victims of their circumstances or history. Sometimes we are faced with painful circumstances. Sometimes even everyday life begins to feel overwhelming. The unfortunate reality is that we cannot always control what happens in our lives. We can, however, choose how we respond to the difficult things that occur. I believe that all of us have the ability to grow and to make positive, lasting change in our lives. My role as therapist is to help facilitate this process.

Sometimes, we get stuck. A problem that may seem small at first just seems to get worse and before you know it, you have gotten lost in a dark place and can't figure out how to get out. As a therapist, I want to be a flashlight that can guide you through. It takes courage to reach out for help, and doing so shows you are ready to find your way back- or to a new, better place! I meet my clients with understanding, non-judgment, and collaboration. Whether it's depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or life transitions- you deserve to find peace, and I look forward to helping you meet your full potential and reach achievable goals.

Everyone faces challenges in life, and at some point we all need help. My approach to counseling provides a supportive, growth-oriented professional relationship. I help you access your own strengths and resources in order to cope with overwhelming problems, as well as teaching new skills that can add new dimensions to your ability to heal, grow, and change. Recognizing this, I seek to create an individualized approach to helping your with your problems. While each case is unique, it is also important to use evidence-based treatment approaches. I use a wholistic approach that takes mind, body, and soul into consideration.

I am a strong believer in healthy relationships. When our relationships shift towards dysfunctional, they can become more stressful than comforting. I work with adults in individual, couple, and family therapy to create more balanced relationships, with themselves and others. Together we explore issues arising from anxiety/conflict related to intergenerational trauma, dysfunctional relationship patterns, and family issues. Often times these issues arise in the form of disconnection, unresolvable issues, uneven work-life balance, and burn-out.

Appointments available, no waitlist! Couples are my specialty. Is my partner there for me? You may feel isolated, abandoned, powerless, and hopeless in your relationship. But good news - I help couples develop warmth, the feeling that “I am lovable and he/she loves me,” that “I can count on them, and I matter to them.” I'm trained in Gottman couples therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy, two of the most effective methods out there today. I also offer the Gottman workshop, “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.” It’s for any couple, married/traditional or not. (See FrancesPattonTherapy.co.)

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. Charlotte 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.
