- Conflict Resolution
Emotionally fulfilling relationships are essential to our mental and physical health. Research has shown that supportive marriages and positive relationships reduce the negative impact of severe stress.
Utilizing emotionally focused couples therapy we improve patterns of communicating and restore intimacy between partners. We help couples move from a “blaming stance” to learning how to identify and request their needs in the couple relationship. Strong emotions of anger and acts of distancing are explored in a safe, contained environment.
The goal of therapy is to address unmet emotional needs underlying conflict and subsequently strengthen attachments and foster healthy relationships.
“… maybe emotional connection between people is like oxygen .. maybe isolation is actually dangerous for us. Attachment theory turns this mystery of love into an open book ...” (Dr. Sue Johnson)
