Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

My passion as a therapist is working with couples who feel stuck in the conflict of their relationship. My goal is to work collaboratively with each couple to help them understand their relationship dynamic and create a new pattern of interaction that fosters comfort, care, and connection. I specialize in relationship issues including (but not limited to):Me&Sue

  • constant conflict
  • infidelity
  • betrayals of trust
  • emotional traumas
  • infertility
  • loss of connection
  • substance use
  • civil co-parenting
  • divorce

Me and Dr. Sue Johnson, 2015

I utilize the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) approach, which is theoretically based and empirically supported to alleviate couple distress.  EFT, created and developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, works by looking at how partners construct their emotional experience of relatedness and how they engage each other in order to expand emotional responses, create new kinds of interactions, and foster secure bonding between one another.  The overall process of change is from isolation to connectedness. Studies on EFT showed a 70-75% recovery rate in 10-12 sessions and an improvement rate of 86-90% across a variety of populations and settings, faring considerably better than other problem-solving types of couples therapy.  I completed the EFT Externship in 2014 and am continually attending trainings to hone in on the skills of this extremely effective approach. I am currently listed as an EFT provider on the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) directory.

My fee for for a 50-minute couples therapy session is $80.
