Our hearts long for connection. Sadly the place where we should be intimately connected – our marriage – has been damaged by much of what life brings our way. My passion is to journey with couples to discover how to transform their marriage and recapture the longing of their hearts with the one they have chosen to share life.
Within the safe haven of a counseling relationship, I partner with couples to help them with life’s uncertainties by getting beyond the frustration of reactive emotions to discover each other’s deepest needs and longings so that they experience the transforming power of an intimate connection.
In my partnership with each couple, I use empirically validated Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), founded by Sue Johnson. EFT therapists adhere to the philosophy that relationships are at the core of human experience. Research indicates that emotionally fulfilling relationships are integral components of mental and physical health, and that emotionally focused interventions have the power to establish and re-create supportive bonds among individuals.
