Couple Therapy

"Love and Compassion are Necessities-Not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive."
- Dalai Lama

Do you often find yourself...

  • feeling that you just can't talk to or be heard by your partner?
  • having the same argument with your partner again and again?
  • wondering if your relationship can ever be close again?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Emotionally Focused Therapy can help. Using EFT, I can assist you in building a strong and lasting connection. Relationship distress is often caused by insecurity in the emotional attachment or connection between partners. I am certified to practice Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a state-of-the-art therapy which research shows is the most effective therapy for helping distressed couples to restore closeness and intimacy.

EFT helps couples understand their relationship dance. In my Palm Beach office, couples learn to recognize their dance and become aware of how their emotional signals for connection are getting distorted or lost. Instead of bringing the other closer, sometimes these attachment behaviors trigger insecurity and reactivity in the other, in a vicious cycle that creates distance and isolation in relationships. Research shows that it is the feelings of alienation and loneliness that cause most marital separation, rather than overt anger or conflict. EFT can help you recognize and change your negative dance and create a secure bond based on responsiveness to each other's needs and fears.
