I believe in the ability of people to heal from difficult events and to make positive changes in their lives. Therapy (individual, group, couples) needs to be a safe place where a client can feel supported in addressing their issues. I have seen how a psychotherapeutic relationship, in combination with other relationships in the client's life, can aid in those processes of healing and self-change. As a therapist I offer insight and other assistance where helpful but the focus remains on the client, the client's experience and the meanings that she/he/they draw from that experience.

1. Are you or a loved one experiencing hardship because of a threat of deportation? If you need a hardship evaluation for immigration, you must be able to prove that you need to stay in this country for your family. A psychological report that you can exhibit to immigration, documenting the emotional trauma you and your family have endured is a necessary step in helping you stay here in this country.

A successful therapeutic relationship will be supportive, empowering, positive, but also difficult, at times uncomfortable, and often challenging. We rarely find ourselves seeking therapy when everything is comfortable and going well; instead, we are feeling helpless, unlovable, angry, isolated, and stuck in situations without solutions. Things that once made sense no longer do, we are confused, fearful, and just want to feel better. Imagine not feeling so afraid, understanding how/where your thoughts come from, or just simply being able to be happy; these are the expectations of our work together.

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.
