Couples initiate their relationship to satisfy each member's desire to be loved, connected, respected and enjoyed. In all relationships, life's demands impede on that fun. Rekindling those good feelings, mutual enjoyment, and respect becomes our therapy work. Sometimes, communication is more hurtful than constructive. Other times, you have become strangers instead of best friends. Sexual pleasures become disappointments. Parenting becomes distracting instead of successful teamwork. Money becomes a dispute, crippling a couples pleasures and goals. With so few couples succeeding in love and compatibility, couples counseling becomes a tool to re-ignite what's missing.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

As an EFT therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

This quote from William James, an American philosopher,says a lot about couples counseling. "Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude." One thing I will do, is to help you understand what some of your "triggers" are and why they are present today in your relationship. There are many other factors in couples counseling. Call me and let's see if I can help you build a stronger relationship.
