Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT, Johnson) helps couples secure the lost attachment. Then, you can resolve conflict without escalating or withdrawing. How you argue is more important than what you argue about. Sessions resolve content of problems using a validation concept which allows both to be heard.
Solution-Focused Therapy assesses problems and goals to help you move ahead as quickly as possible. Clients often know exactly what they want to see changed, and we work together to reach your goals.

Couples Therapy... Trust and communication... are restored as resentment is healed. The endless cycle of defensiveness is replaced with validation, mutual respect, and forgiveness. As both partners confess and forgive, peace is restored. Suspicion falls away and freedom to be yourself with each other returns. Therapy helps unmarried couples... to focus on enjoying the relationship rather than power or insecurity. Demanding love destroys the gift of Love. You can love extravagantly without fear or extreme self-protection. Curiosity... in the relationship is critical in avoiding isolation, chronic conflict, and cheating.
Marriage Therapy... Emotional Intimacy can be restored... As resentment is healed, forgiveness happens. The focus shifts to the qualities that attracted you, and passion returns. You can become best friends and lovers with your own spouse.
Individual Therapy... Life can be overwhelming with no time to recover from multiple losses and problems. If you feel depleted of emotional and physical energy and motivation, CBT helps get perspective on what is within or beyond your control. You can heal from abuse, addiction, anger, depression, divorce, unhealthy relationships, codependence, and eating disorders.
