Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based method for helping couples to identify their negative patterns and find a deeper connection. EFT has more evidence supporting its efficacy than any other type of couples therapy. In addition to the empirical evidence, I use it because I see time and again that it works.
EFT starts from the premise that we are wired to connect, to depend on each other, and to seek closeness. Sometimes the wires get crossed as we seek these things in relationship and we end up locked in a negative cycle with our partner where our actions generate further disconnection instead of connection. Using EFT, I will help you identify how your negative cycle works and what drives it. We'll slow things down enough to find the positive intentions and bids for closeness and connection that get lost in these cycles.
The couples who have gone through EFT counseling with me report feeling they have a better handle on where they get off track and are able to catch themselves before they end up deep in a negative cycle. As they get further along in the process, many tell me that they feel closer than they've ever felt, and are able to have conversations they never dreamed they'd be able to have without fighting. Their sex lives improve, and they feel like better parents, partners, bosses, and employees. All this is due to finding a deeper and safer connection with their partner.
I can't wait to share all that EFT has to offer with you and your partner. Call for a free consultation today and let's get started!
