Is this you?
Feeling disconnected and lonely in your relationship? Caught in repetitive arguments that go nowhere?
Discouraged? Helpless? Hopeless? Wondering if you’ll ever get it right?
Are you more like roommates? Is there a lack of affection?
Stuck in a rut?
Are you searching for?
A loving relationship? Feeling special with your partner again?
A way to make the hurt and pain go away?
If your relationship is stuck and filled with conflict, sadness, distance and frustration, you know how it impacts your entire life. You may find it periodically darkens your mood, damages your physical health and can upset your children, other family members and friends.
The important thing is that your relationship doesn’t have to stay this way…

Marriage and Couples Therapy That Works
My couples training and the work I do is Emotionally Focused Therapy (www.icceft.com) which has been rigorously researched and found to be one of the most effective approaches to couples therapy. A meta-analysis in couple’s therapy found that 73% of couples treated with EFT recovered from their distress and 86% made significant improvements in their relationship.

Research-proven successful couples therapy
