Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based method for helping couples to identify their ineffective cycle(s) and find deeper connection. EFT has the best, most long lasting outcomes over time of any 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.
