Couple Therapy

Preparing for marriage?  Feeling disconnected?  Not sure about the relationship?  We work with couples to create trust and safety so that they can reconnect and gain a deeper understanding of their relationships as we explore with them how to rekindle the love, strengthen the bonds, or dissolve a relationship.

We believe human beings are wired for connection.  In an intimate relationship, partners long for comfort, love and security from each other; and when these deep longings are not met, they feel disconnected, isolated, alone, and hurt, wondering if their relationship is sustainable.  If the relationship is further challenged by any of the following, the distress can really feel unbearable:

  • Communication breakdown
  • Parenting
  • Conflicts over money, sex, time, health
  • Extended family issues
  • Life transition
  • Infidelity

In couple therapy, your relationship is our client.  Utilizing Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFCT or best known as EFT), we aim to help you make sense of your relational distress so that you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner, and your relationship.  In doing so, we help you recognize your patterns of getting stuck (how you fight and disconnect) in light of the content (what you fight about) so that we can deconstruct these patterns and restructure new patterns that foster connection, intimacy and safety.

EFT is an evidence-based gold standard for couple therapy.  Research has shown that 70-75% of couples experience positive shift from their distress and 90% shows significantly improvement in their relationships.  

Whether you want to strengthen your relationship, resolve conflicts, rebuild a broken relationship, or contemplate a separation/divorce, let us journey with you.  Your are reaching out because your relationship is precious.  Don’t struggle on your own.
