Individuals are provided a safe, nurturing environment where they can explore their feelings without judgement. My goal for my clients is that they feel comfortable sharing with me. They need to feel safe as we engage in the process of uncovering old wounds. As self-awareness grows, clients become more at ease with themselves and others. I help my clients to become stronger and more resilient when dealing with life's stresses in order to have more emotionally connected and fulfilling lives. I do not give advice, but guide and assist clients in making their best choices.
My goal is to help couples reconnect and to restore the intimacy they once enjoyed. We seek to build better bonds. Partners are viewed as coping as best as they can given their current circumstances. The interactions of distressed couples are characterized by negative cycles where, for example, one partner pursues while the other withdraws. The therapist helps the couple go to the underlying emotions that keep them stuck in those rigid positions and negative interactions. It is normal for couples to struggle. EFT allows couples to de-escalate conflicts and restore intimacy to levels they may not have achieved before. For more information on EFT, please go to http://www.iceeft.com.
