If you are having the same arguments over and over again, you are not alone. I will be with you every step of the way. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples to interrupt repetitive Cycles where one person reaches out in frustration, causing their partner to withdraw and hide out. Couple Therapy doesn't have to be torture, and there doesn't have to be a "bad guy". I have helped couples with a range of issues from Domestic Abuse to infidelity to communication issues. I even use humor sometimes, but we don't waste a moment! I welcome couples who have been in couple therapy before and have almost given up.
I have a plan, and I care. We can do this together. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples and with families. I have a proven track record, and. I have been named one of the three best Marriage Counselors in Boston a number of times. (ThreeBest.com) Please see actual Client statements on my website: paulazerfosseft.com.
EFT is a short term method, about 30-35 sessions. The method works for any couples, any sexual orientation, any age, married or not. It's for anyone who wants a stronger connection with their partner. Some reviewers have said that when they are with me they feel that "they are my only clients". That's one of my favorite comments!

Paula Zerfoss, LCSW, Couple Therapy That Works's Groups

Introductory group: Should We Get Married?

This is a 1-3 session group aimed specifically to help those couples who are trying to make a commitment decision but are undecided. I use the MBTI (Myers Briggs) as well as elements of Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples understand their ambivalence, or feel comfortable with the commitment decision they have already made. Participants should be willing to understand their personality type and their partner's as well.
