“We tried counseling before, and this first session was already a thousand times better.”

“Since we started coming, I actually have hope that we can get back to the kind of loving relationship we used to have.  It’s been a really long time since I felt any hope.”

“I can’t believe we were actually talking about the ‘D’ word just a few months ago.  Now our friends are asking how we get along so well!”

Relationships Matter

The quality of our relationships can impact our mental, emotional, and even our physical well-being.  A strong emotional bond allows us to feel supported and appreciated, and sets us free from the natural anxiety of relationship distress. When we feel unheard, unimportant, or attacked, we can develop a sense of isolation even in our own home.  That emotional distance can create a downward spiral, where couples grow further and further apart.  And yet, emotional bonds can heal and become stronger than before.

 New Possibilities

The field of psychology has recently developed new approaches to healing relationships based on advances in neuroscience and attachment theory.  Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is a research-validated approach that is changing how we understand and how we work with relationships.  Its focus is to develop strong bonds in new relationships, help rediscover connection where couples have grown distant, help heal from long-lasting injuries and betrayal, and give couples the opportunity to reconnect at a deep, emotional level.
