Using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), our goal is to repair what is there, bringing the attachment and love to the surface.
We all experience the same feelings, so why do we sometimes feel so misunderstood? Speaking our emotions is not always considered valuable in the worlds we have to inhabit and yet our desire to connect is one of our most primary urges. I want to join you in finding the language to communicate the wants, needs and boundaries of your experience, and with others. Therapy can be a space to engage with those parts of self truthfully and without judgment.

My approach blends Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Modern Analysis.
Couples come to see me when they are caught in an escalating, upsetting pattern which they need help to get out of. They need better connection, communication, and cooperation with each other. Individuals come to see me with emotional pain and self defeating patterns of thinking and behaving. Working together as a therapeutic team I am able to help create a safe space in which recognition, understanding and validation and changes in outlook, attitude and behavior are learned and applied to create satisfying interpersonal and internal connections

Emotionally Focused Therapists

Who is emotionally focused therapy for?

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is for couples who are emotionally distressed, stuck in an unsatisfying relationship pattern or feeling deeply alienated. They may even believe the relationship is beyond repair. Very often, the partners display intense anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal in the relationship. In addition, EFT is helpful to couples and individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and those who have trouble regulating emotions.

Why do people need emotionally focused therapy?

People need emotionally focused therapy because the need for others is built into the brain, but the pressures of daily life can erode feelings of love, and couples often do not have the skills to find their way back to the comfort of each other. Instead, they may be stuck in repetitive patterns of anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal. Emotionally focused therapy regards such strong negative feelings as expressions of protest over the loss of connection and turns them into pathways of reconnection.

What happens in emotionally focused therapy?

Over the course of eight to 20 weekly sessions, couples de-escalate their negative emotional reactivity to one another so that they can listen to each other and be responsive to each other’s needs. Then the deep emotional and physical bond is restored, giving partners a sense of comfort and security, which they can use to solve whatever problems come their way. The therapist plays an active role, helping partners understand how anger and withdrawal are actually misguided cries for connection.

What problems does emotionally focused therapy treat?

EFT is designed to help couples stuck in dysfunctional relationship patterns regain closeness and rebuild their relationship. Typically, such couples experience considerable distress, with partners feeling alienated and distrustful of one another, not certain their relationship can survive. EFT is also helpful to individuals experiencing attachment-related fears of loss; it helps them learn to use their fears as a way of eliciting the closeness they desire.
