I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) when working with couples. EFT is an evidence-based model developed by Dr. Sue Johnson.
- EFT helps to create a secure emotional bond with your partner.
- EFT has over 20 years of empirical research.
- Studies have shown that 70%-75% of couples “recover” and almost 90% improve significantly.
- EFT is effective for all couples, straight or LGBTQ.
We all need secure emotional bonds so the healing process is similar for all of us, but emotion will be expressed differently by each couple. EFT focuses on the unique interactions within each relationship in order to rekindle your bond with your partner.
Haven't had your big day yet? I very much enjoy working with couples -- straight or gay -- as they prepare for marriage. Premarital work focuses on issues such as marriage myths, relationship expectations and goals, finances, communication, living arrangements, sexual and emotional intimacy, family, and children. Premarital counseling is psychoeducational and time-limited, usually 6-8 sessions.
I am happy to answer questions about couples counseling or EFT. Give me a call at 404.666.2166 to let me know what's on your mind or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
