Couples Counseling

Regain a Nourishing,
Secure Relationship

Being in a healthy, secure relationship nourishes us as much as the food on our plate. Stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) go down, feel-good hormone (oxytocin) goes up, our internal organs function more optimally, and the body more effectively digests, absorbs and utilizes nutrients.

So when we truly feel loved, accepted, and supported, we are naturally more motivated and confident to face our health and life challenges. The world becomes a less scary and lonely place, and we have less of a need to resort to food or other harmful behaviors to cope.

To help you and your partner regain a nourishing, secure relationship, we focus on reestablishing emotional safety with one another and rebuilding your bond. Using EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy), we teach you how to break toxic behavior patterns (fighting, withdrawal, blaming, defensiveness) and move into safer ways of communicating and relating that foster greater closeness and trust.

Research on the efficacy of EFT show that over 90% of couples improve in their relationship following 10 – 12 sessions. More importantly, these results were consistent two years later (other couples therapies show improvement in 35% of couples, on average, with 30 – 50% relapsing in two years).
