Relationship and Premarital Therapy
Transitioning your relationship to marriage is very exciting and can also be quite stressful. When you add wedding planning into the mix often lots of big feelings and complicated family dynamics can arise. As you form your new family nucleus, premarital therapy will support you to communicate effectively and form a deeper connection in your partnership.
Based on the work of John Gottman, PhD and Julie Schwartz Gottman, PhD in the book Eight Dates, I not only help couples understand one another more, I can co-create a love story that pulls together past experiences with their present lifestyle and future intentions to express yourselves authentically and uniquely to your community.
In a couples therapy session I aim to help my clients experience one another in a more intimate manner through the use of Emotionally Focused Therapy interventions. Based on Attachment Theory, EFT emphasizes healthy adult bonds and guides clients to feel safe within their relationship to change their reactions to ones that respect each others boundaries and needs.
