Our therapists draw from many therapeutic modalities during their sessions with couples but primarily use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). Most of us tend to argue with our partners about the same things, over and over again. EFT helps draw awareness to some of the underlying emotions you may be feeling in your relationship but may not be aware of. Therapy is a safe place where you can learn to be vulnerable with your partner about your unmet needs and deeper emotions. You will learn how to communicate these in more effective ways and help initiate new cycles of interaction with your partner.
Our therapists also draw from Dr. John Gottman’s work which integrates research-based interventions to help couples improve the friendship in their relationship and resolve conflict in a positive way.
Our therapists also incorporate Imago Therapy with couples, which is based on the theory that there is a connection between frustrations in adult relationships and early childhood experiences. Couples can learn to understand each other’s feelings and “childhood wounds” more empathically, allowing them to heal themselves and their relationships.
