Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
Relationships are what makes life meaningful. We can clarify what patterns might make it challenging to connect with other people. Sometimes the way we say things or certain behaviors end up pushing people away, perhaps because we’re feeling angry, afraid of getting hurt, or overwhelmed. By slowing things down, we can discover deeper emotions, wants, and needs and find ways to express these in a way that invites connection and empathy.
We’re so happy to have worked with you and are, at the same time, sad that it has come to an end. For now. We can’t thank you enough for the genuine kindness, compassion, humor, gentleness, expertise, and insightfulness you brought to our premarital counseling sessions. Working with you has truly deepened our love for—and our understanding of—each other; not to mention that it has also deepened our understanding of ourselves as individuals. You far exceeded every expectation and working with you proved to be the ultimate wedding gift to each other!
