“Love has an immense ability to help heal the devastating wounds that life sometimes deals us. Love also enhances our sense of connection to the larger world. Loving responsiveness is the foundation of a truly compassionate, civilized society.”
― Sue Johnson
My approach to Couples Therapy is informed by the modality EFT- Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples.
As with individual therapy, many of the tools you need to thrive in your relationships are already within your possession. It really comes down to learning and understanding how to access them.
Some of the goals couples and I work on are:
Deepening connection, trust, and hope
Identifying and working through negative patterns
Reframing negative patterns and stuck points
Learning skills to strengthen the connection as partners
Identifying and expressing needs and values, in order to co-construct new patterns in the relationship
There is value in relationships and we can flourish within them. A couple does not need to have problems to reap the benefit of couples therapy. We can strengthen and build on things that work well and plan for what is next
