Great communication in a happy couple involves many things: A willingness to remain open to your partner's perspective, empathic listening, a capacity to sometimes bear strong feelings without lashing out, and a desire to share in each others' lives in a direct and engaged manner. All couples struggle with repetitive cycles of communication breakdown.
We seek to help you break those cycles and improve the quality of your bond. Our approach to couples therapy is active, compassionate, and involves intentional effort to make space for both partners to speak their minds and arrive at a better place in life. We recognize that couples therapy can also be a particularly vulnerable time for those couples who feel that the continuity of the relationship is in jeopardy itself at the time of initiating treatment. All of our therapists will work with you to work towards the best possible outcome for all parties affected under the circumstances. Our couples therapists are trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. Couples entering our practice are encouraged to read Dr. Johnson's book: Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.
