The Therapy for Families Approach to Couples Counseling

Couples 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 essential to healing and mending problems.

Together, we will identify patterns that cause emotional distance in relationships. Additionally, we will work on building secure attachment as a couple. We will teach you healthy skills to increase intimacy in all areas by addressing and healing from attachment wounds and core issues.

Our Couples Counseling Process

We utilize therapy models individualized for each couple. The most common modality used is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT has 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. EFT is based on principles of attachment theory and focuses on deepening romantic connections. This approach helps partners identify negative cycles that can erode trust and security in relationships. Counselors help couples learn to identify and communicate their needs while discovering how to express emotions in a healthy and positive way. This transformative approach allows couples to appreciate each other and connect on a whole new level.
