Why Therapy

A systematic empirically validated theory of adult bonding

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) has the highest success rate of any form of couple therapy. With extensive research showing its positive effects on relationship satisfaction, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and PTSD to name a few, EFT is recognized by the American Psychological Association as an “evidence-based” therapy for couples distress.

What is EFT?

Additional individual benefits include living longer, wounds healing faster

And with couples divorcing and splitting at the highest rate in modern times, quality couple therapy is a must. Finding a qualified couple therapist is essential.
