I’ve been counseling here in Orange County for the past 20 years and helping people like you maximize their relationships.
News Flash! Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the the most successful and longest lasting therapy for couples and marriages. Research shows it helps partners become more securely attached (and, by the way, loving) with each other.
Relationships bring out our needs, anxieties and conflicts with people in our current life. And relationships are often affected by our past with parents, friends and former partners.
When we enter into a relationship (marriage or otherwise), we expect to be loved and accepted for who we are and to feel safe. Often individuals and their partners can be influenced by their personal legacies as well as by new triggers and current raw spots. Of course you want to turn your dysfunctional “dance” into a healthy one; and I want to help you do just that.
My work with couples focuses on helping partners identify their attachment style and understand how their different styles affect their interactions with one another. Couples often get stuck in disconnection. My goal is to help you and your partner actively sculpt your path back to intimacy so that you will both feel nurtured, loved, safe and connected. The EFT model is perfect for this process.
While I definitely utilize the EFT model, I will closely attune to you and your cycle and incorporate what will be most useful in helping you and your partner break out of your negative cycle (“dance”). Working together, you will develop a new heart to heart relationship. In other words, a more secure attachment, and more deeply attuned love for each other.
