Introduction:
Applying Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy  and the Gottman Method, two research-based approaches, I collaborate with you to reverse negative cycles and find and strengthen your attachment bond.  Couples therapy can help whether you're wanting to start off together on solid footing or have been long caught in conflict or distant, parallel lives, yearning to find a way out of a downward spiral to connection again.  In the process of our work, issues such as recent or past affairs, unresolved loss or trauma, medical,  emotional or other challenges come to be met at last by the couple together.
In individual therapy, through guided focusing within, you have my support as you clarify your goals, explore options for reaching them, and attend to possible obstacles, such as anxiety, uncertainty, overwhelm,  depression, unresolved grief or past trauma that seem to block you from achieving those goals.
