And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (NIV)  1 Corinthians 13:13


The Average Couple Waits 6 Years Before Seeking Help for Marital Problems.
Most couples live with unhappiness for far too long. Marriage can be one of the most challenging relationships that we have in this life, but we also know that it should be one of the most wonderfully fulfilling relationships. 

Have you been feeling like

  • You've become just roommates?

  • You're exhausted from trying so hard?

  • You're distant from your spouse and long to connect? 

  • Do you lack communication?

  • You have the same fights over and over again without resolution?

  • The love you once felt has been replaced with tension and frustration?

  • You constantly fight over the kids, household chores, sex, or money?

Then I would like to help!

Using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), one of the best validated and most effective approaches to changing distressed couple relationships, we will work to recreate those secure, loving bonds. EFT is usually a short term, structured approach to couple therapy formulated in the early 80′s by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg.

Is EFT Successful?

EFT is remarkably successful, and targets the core emotional bond of the couple. EFT reflects the most recent research on the nature of relationship distress and satisfaction, the nature of the bonds of adult love and the power of emotion. Based on the neuroscience of adult love and bonding, EFT is validated by 25 years of scientific research. Studies find that more than 7 out of 10 couples treated with EFT move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvement. At the cutting edge of the new era in couple and family therapy, EFT offers a systematic map, not just to conflict reduction but to the creation of safe emotional connection and recovery.

Even if you’re feeling hopeless right now, it is possible to shift your relationship and get it back on track…

Want to Find Your Bests Friend Again?

Have you been feeling lonely, depressed or anxious because of relationship problems? You are not alone. Do you find your relationship is marked by conflict, sadness, distance and frustration? This affects every area of your entire life. You may see how it darkens your moods, damages your physical health and even upsets your children, other family members and friends.

The Important Thing is that Your Relationship Does Not Have to Stay This Way…

Together, we can work to save your relationship and open the doors to those lost feelings of love for one another.

Through marriage or couples therapy, you can save your relationship and:

  • Reconnect with your partner

  • Be that “soft place to fall” for each other again

  • Communicate what you need and want in ways your partner can hear

  • Make up quickly after disagreements

  • Communicate so that you both feel valued and cared for

  • Trust each other again

  • Create higher levels of intimacy, trust and satisfaction

Your Relationship can be a Joy Again, Not Draining You Emotionally!

In fact couples or marriage therapy can help you have a positive, loving relationship that will strengthen your confidence, lighten your mood and fill you with energy and hope. It can help you:

  • Hug, kiss and cuddle frequently
  • Have fun together and comfort each other
  • End the feelings of loneliness and isolation
  • Have a better-than-ever sex life
  • Ask for and receive the support you need and
  • Value and appreciate your differences and what they bring to your relationship.
