Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)

Based in atttachment theory, EFT addresses the underlying dynamic that keeps many couples stuck. This cycle creates continual and unresolved polarizations. EFT works to identify and de-escalate this dynamic so that a more connected, loving and fulfilling relationship can emerge. 

EFT effectively addresses :

  • Communication issues
  • Destructive patterns
  • Disconnection and distance in the relationship
  • How internal dynamics from each individual's history can negatively impact the relationship
  • How to deepen connection and foster a loving and nurturing relationship
  • Excessive anger and polarizations
  • Diminished emotional and sexual intimacy
  • Infidelity
  • Value conflicts such as money or parenting
  • Approach/Avoidant dynamics
  • Abuse or lack of respect
  • Intimacy and sexual issues
