PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

Family & Couples

Couples counseling, and family therapy are ways to help you and your loved ones better understand each other. It examines interpersonal relationships, what roles are being defined, and how they relate to each other. Our goal is to explore certain patterns and identify new ways to move forward so that you can create a new understanding of the family and or marital system. We practice both Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as well as Relational Life Therapy (RLT).

 

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

This is a type of short-term couples therapy that focuses on attachments and bonding. Families and couples can benefit from EFT by learning to improve their relationships, often for those dealing with fear, anger, or a sense of betrayal. We will look at patterns within the relationship and help create an increased trust that will bring the relationship to a healthier place. You will learn to discover and express emotions in a way that will help you connect, listen and stay attuned to one another. Weekly sessions.

RLT (Relational Life Therapy) 

This is a highly effective form of couples counseling that aims to help partners resolve conflicts, develop personal accountability, improve communication, and foster intimacy within their relationship. The long-term goal of RLT is to help people establish productive environments where all relationships and partners are valued, balanced, and grounded in equality and mutual respect. Because this approach is more direct and decisive; longer, bi-weekly sessions are indicated.
