Whether you feel unfulfilled in your career, relationships, or use substances, food or sex to cope with uncomfortable feelings, therapy can assist you in gaining valuable insights and facilitate lasting change.

If you are in a relationship that is in distress, therapy can greatly improve your connection. I help couples of all sexual orientations become open, mutually attuned and responsive to each other in order to re-establish their emotional bond. With this emotional connection restored, couples can heal a distressed relationship, revitalize a tired one, or possibly rescue one gone awry.

How Psychotherapy Can Help You Move Forward In Life

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy focuses on the conscious and unconscious roots of emotional suffering and problematic behavior. Its goal is not only to alleviate the most obvious symptoms but to help people lead healthier lives. It effectively treats symptoms including depression, anxiety, panic and stress-related physical ailments. According to new research published by the American Psychological Association the benefits of the therapy continue to grow even after treatment has ended.

Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, EFT, is a powerful form of therapy that increases mutual understanding of both partners’ emotions and experiences. Have you noticed how particular types of arguments often recur over and over again? EFT is so transformational and effective that it can actually turn these fighting patterns into bonding patterns and opportunities for intimacy. The therapist is there first and foremost to support the relationship and does not take sides with either partner, which creates an extremely safe space for exploration. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery with EFT and approximately 90% respond with significant improvements.
