Why do we keep having the same arguments?
My approach to couples counseling is called EFT (emotionally focused therapy). Operating from an attachment lens, EFT acknowledges that we were created for connection. In relationships, partners help us navigate life and enrich our experiences. When we cannot connect with them, we may feel isolated, angry and alone. Often its our communication, or inability to communicate on important issues, that causes us to become frustrated, to disagree, and become defensive. Couples counseling can help. With the support of a therapist, couples can improve communication, deepen connections, develop mutual understanding to better meet each other's needs.
Counseling sessions can be 60 or 90 minutes long depending on needs and scheduling. For example, some couples prefer to come weekly, biweekly or schedule longer sessions in three week increments. Evening and Saturday morning appointments are also available. Couple intensives are available for couples who desire partial or half-day sessions. Session fees begin at $200 for the full hour.
Topics addressed in couples counseling may include the following:
• Managing conflict
• Improving communication
• Forgiveness and rebuilding trust
• Enhancing Intimacy
• Couple Intensives for 90 minutes
If you are in a relationship with signs of addiction, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and/or severe depression, seek guidance from a counselor immediately, for your safety and your partner.
