How Does Couples Counseling Work?
Couples therapy and counseling is a process and takes effort from both parties! The individual and the couple will identify goals they want to accomplish in the healing process. Goal-setting is extremely important to healing and mending problems.
Together, we will identify patterns that cause emotional distance in relationships, while, at the same time, we will work towards secure attachment as a couple. We will teach you healthy skills, that will bring about an increase of intimacy in all areas by addressing and healing from attachment wounds and core issues.
Our Couples Counseling Process
We utilize therapy models that are individualized for each couple. The most common modality used is known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT has been known to have a 75 percent success rate. Sue Johnson, the creator of EFT, has written many successful books such as Hold Me You and The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy for clinicians.
