Research shows that couples wait on average 6 years before seeking relationship therapy for their issues, meaning that things can be pretty bad by the time you seek help. There can be lots of resentment, hurts, and entrenched communication patterns built up. You might not be sure how to move forward. We can help!
Repair. Reconnect. Revive.
We use a combination of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Therapy, two evidence-based approaches shown to work. We help you get to the root of the problem, so you can understand why you keep having the same argument over and over again, why arguments go in circles, or why you hurt each other despite your best efforts.
Communication skills are important, and we teach you those too, but often we find that it's not as much about the communication as it is that the underlying needs aren't being met. If something your partner says or does really gets to you, it's hard to keep your cool and use your skills. We'll help you get out of the cycle of blame and unite against the problem. It might seem impossible, but I can assure you it's not. We don't just listen and help you problem solve, we help you shift the underlying dynamic of your relationship and eliminate whatever it is that keeps you from being able to solve your problems together.
We also specialize in working with high conflict couples who have a history of trauma. You CAN have a fulfilling, nurturing relationship!
