My approach to couples therapy is most influenced by Emotionally-Focused Therapy (also EFT for short). I help couples reduce conflict and find safety in one another. This in turn allows to turn to one another with their more vulnerable feelings and even some of their deeper needs. In this way, partners can actually help each other heal from older wounds, as well as respond to and connect with one another more consistently and more profoundly.
