At the core of our closest relationships is the desire to feel that our loved ones are there for us. When we experience disconnection, it can create sadness and fear which in turn are often dealt with through anger and/or withdrawal. Partners then often enter into and perpetuate a negative cycle of interaction that can sometimes feel impossible to escape. Using Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT), I treat the couple as my client and begin by identifying the negative cycles between partners. Together we confront problematic interactions and create new ways for each partner to respond to one another. Whether your relationship has experienced a betrayal such as infidelity or you’ve simply drifted apart, EFT can be used to help couples heal from disconnection and hurt, and develop a healthier, more secure bond.
I work as an Independent Contractor with the Washington Baltimore Center for EFT and treat couples out of the Falls Church location.
