Emotionally Focused Therapy helps 90% of couples. 

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) helps address the core questions we often ask ourselves about our most important relationship: “Do I matter deeply to my partner? Will he/she be there for me when I need them most? Do I feel safe and secure enough in this relationship to be my full and authentic self?”

These questions are typically at the root of what couples fight about: the emotional bond and security in their relationship. When we fear that the answer to one of the above questions may be “no,” it can cause us to feel isolated and alone, and sometimes as though we are fighting for survival itself.

Common Questions


 
Can we heal from an affair?

Many couples feel hopeless after discovering infidelity, but there is hope.  We often work with couples who have experienced traumatic injuries or betrayals.  With careful attention and understanding couples can forgive and build trust.  Here is a link to an article with more information on healing hurts. 

Do you accept insurance? How does insurance work?

We are not on any networks of preferred providers, but can give you a form to submit to your insurance company.  They will reimburse you if you have out of network mental health coverage.

 

 

How can I help my spouse understand me?

Most relationships improve dramatically when couples  feel understood by their spouse.  In couples counseling we do more than teach communication skills.  We want you to feel safe with each other so you can be deeply understood.  Get more ideas for creating understanding here.
