Are you having trouble getting the love
you want? Maybe you’re feeling lonely
and disconnected from your partner.

Maybe you’re tired of always having the same
fight. Maybe you’re alone right now, and are discouraged
by past relationships that didn’t work out.

I would like to help you. First, I will listen to the struggles in your relationship.
Then, I will suggest how you and your partner can express your ideas and feelings
in ways that the other can understand.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) - a scientifically tested approach that gets excellent and lasting results. According to EFT, the main problem for most couples is the loss of a secure emotional connection. To get more connected, most of us try to pull our partner closer or avoid conflict. But the way we do it often feels like criticism, anger or indifference to our partner. This sets-up a negative cycle. In therapy, I will help you create a positive cycle. You will learn how to express your needs and fears in a way that encourages your partner to come closer and give you the love and compassion that you want. You will both learn how to understand each other better, and how to create more trust and intimacy.

I provide EFT and other kinds of Relationship Therapy in my Orange County office. It is often better to work with a couple, but individual therapy can also improve your relationship.
