Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing
and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing and finding
deeper connection. It is a dance of meeting and parting and
finding each other again. Minute to minute and day to day.

Resolving conflicts without heated arguments or going silent
Create a feeling of openness, emotional safety and love
Research on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)* shows that over 70% of couples reported a complete absence of distress at the end of therapy and 90% reported significant improvement in their relationship.
You have the same arguments over and over without any lasting change
You feel like roommates
Sex and intimacy feel strained and like a chore
Past events continue to come up but remain unresolved
Do any of the following sound familiar?
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy does this by helping couples to:
When couples experience this type of emotional safety,
there begins to be more openness and flexibility in problem solving and communication
and couples experience a deep sense of trust and connection.
You feel that your partner doesn't care about you or that you don't matter.
You feel like you're growing apart and want to get the relationship back on track.
It feels like your partner should know what you need after all of these years without you having to say so.
There has been an affair and you aren't sure what to do to heal the relationship.
You have a good relationship but the stressors of life; kids, family, work, finances, moves or an illness have taken a toll. You want to take time to prioritize the relationship and get back that closeness that you once had.
