Emotionally Focused Therapy Couples Counseling

EFT is the most thoroughly researched couple therapy modality and has numerous empirical research studies confirming EFT as being the most effective couple therapy long term. Together, we will work on the areas where you feel “stuck” in your marriage and will work through your emotions on a deeper level.

In-person and telehealth appointments available!

Start Your Healing Journey Who Needs Couples Therapy?

Recognizing that something needs to change is the first step in seeking couple therapy. I work with couples to gain a better understanding of the underlying motivations that fuel negative patterns in the relationship. 

Couples Therapy May Help If You FEel:

  • Unresolved hostility or resentment towards your spouse

  • Upset about your partner’s infidelity, addiction or other destructive behaviors

  • Guilt about things you do or don't do in your marriage

  • Stress due to parenting differences and difficulties

  • Feelings that your relationship is unequal

  • Stress or anxiety about financial burdens

“If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl, but by all means, keep moving.”

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

EFT for Couples How Can Therapy Help?

My goal as and EFT therapist is to support couples in their healing journey, while helping to identify each partner’s emotional distress signals more accurately, to communicate your needs safely and effectively, end feelings of loneliness and isolation, and ultimately creating and strengthening the kind of secure emotional bond we all desire.

You can find information about EFT, including research articles at www.iceeft.com.
