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 to help us navigate life. 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 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 clients' needs and availability. For example, some couples prefer to come weekly, biweekly or schedule longer sessions in three week increments. Evening and Saturday mornings appointments are also available. Hourly fees range from $160-200 depending on duration. Couple intensives are $500 for a half day.
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.
