Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

is a research-based approach to treating relationship problems with individuals, couples and families. EFT is based on attachment research which shows that humans have an inborn need for reliable attachment figures to whom they can turn for comfort and support. EFT has been shown to be effective in helping three out of four couples recover from significant distress. EFT is very effective for helping couples recover from relationship problems due to infidelity, medical crises, trauma and addiction. EFT is an experiential therapy based on creating moments of connection between partners.

I am especially skilled in the area of relationships.​ I have advanced training in EFT. Successful couples therapy facilitates significant positive change for the individual as well as the couple. I aim to help my clients reduce conflict and enjoy more secure relationships.

New conversations

We work together in a collaborative process to identify the obstacles and eliminate the perpetual negative cycle. I help facilitate new conversations that are deeper and safer. I help couples become vulnerable with each other. It is my job to keep my office calm and productive and safe for everyone.
