I see clients dealing with various challenges, but I primarily work with couples who wish to have a better relationship and individuals struggling with anxiety and the use of sex and pornography as coping strategies. Many of my couples have not connected as they would like and are looking to build a deeper connection. Those individuals I see may be reaching the bottom after years of pornography use and sexual "acting out". They are ready to make a change in their lives. I am proud to partner with my clients in creating meaningful relationships, which are the most important aspects of our lives.

I'm skilled in attachment styles, Imago Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, PREPARE/ENRICH, & EMDR, which I implement with a balanced, dynamic, Christian approach.
Are you searching for relationship satisfaction? Has dating been difficult for you? Do you feel unable to experience a mutually loving bond with someone who wants the same things as you do? As an attachment therapist, I love helping people achieve relational fulfillment. Intimacy is challenging, yet rewarding, when you have healthy and secure attachments with others. Whether you're single, dating, or newly married, I'd love to work with you! I can help you understand your attachment style, and how that plays a key role in the formation and development of a healthy, fulfilling relationship with the person you love.

Currently Out On Leave Until 3/1/23. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and offer counseling for individuals and couples. I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidenced-based model that has been validated through decades of research. With a 70-75% rate of recovery for couples in distress, and about 90% of couples showing significant improvement, EFT assists couples in improving communication, changing patterns, strengthening the relationship bond, and (re)establishing connection and trust in the relationship. This powerful approach may be used in couple, family, and individual counseling.

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.)

My therapeutic approach reflects influences derived from my training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), family systems therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness based therapy and energy psychology.
Selecting a therapist is an important decision. Creating a therapeutic rapport with a perfect stranger and discussing very personal issues can be intimidating. I'd like to help make this process more comfortable. I have been working with individuals, couples, and families for 28 years. My integrative approach helps you utilize your skills and strengths to identify and solve current problems. It also affords you the opportunity to resolve long standing issues by learning new skills, tapping into your own inner resources and recognizing the body, mind and spirit connection.

Life can be hard. Counseling can help. My goal for therapy is to create a space where you may rediscover hope and engage in the hard work of reshaping and reclaiming your life. I most often take a Psychodynamic approach however, I utilize techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, Solution-Focused, Narrative and Rogerian theories. I believe that counseling is a unique relationship, constructed within a supportive, warm, and safe environment. You are the author of your own life story and the expert of YOU ... so we'll work together to determine what you want that life story to be.

Ready to learn more about yourself and finally connect the dots? I am passionate about working with clients who are anxious, overwhelmed, and want more out of life. Also those who have a desire to be spiritual but don't know where to begin. I work with clients to process their lifelong timeline - reviewing attachments, childhood, relationships, traumas, family cycles, etc. I want to help people learn how to be in their body, improving the relationship with themselves. I want people to know that everyone has a mental health and many diagnoses are the body/mind's way of protecting us, the way human bodies respond to stay safe.

The client-therapist relationship is one of the most powerful vehicles for personal growth and change. In my practice, I offer an accepting, non-judgmental space where you can explore how your life experiences have helped shape who you are and move towards healthier ways of being. The process of psychotherapy is a sacred journey that is co-created by the client and therapist, and I recognize the courage it takes for the client to embark on a rewarding, but sometimes difficult, path towards self-awareness. My approach to couples counseling focuses on creating safety and connection between partners.

It can be difficult to make the transition into therapy. I work with clients to identify and change areas of life that are not working. That can range from clinically significant anxiety and/or depression, life changes, issues surrounding infertility, prenatal/perinatal/postpartum concerns, congenital concerns, parenting skills, childhood trauma, and adjustment problems. I work with teens and adults, as for younger kids- I will work with their parents. Therapy involves hard work, that is why it's difficult to initiate, and why I want to be there to support you.

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. 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.
