"Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing and finding deeper connection.


It is a dance of meeting and parting

and finding each other again minute to minute and day to day"

Dr. Sue Johnson


Understanding The Dance

Couples go through seasons of difficulties when partners feel distant, unloved, and caught in a "dance" or pattern of fighting and pain.


Learning how to connect at a heart level to our lover is a way of engaging differently in the "marriage dance" that can bring about healthier communication, deeper connection, and overall healing. 

There are very few therapists who are both certified in EFT and certified as a sex therapist. 


Helping couples learn to connect emotionally and physically is a core part of my practice

Why go to a Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist?

EFT is scientifically based to help couples thrive.  In fact, studies show that over 70 percent of couples in EFT went from distressed to happy, and 90 percent significantly improved, in 15 to 20 sessions. Perhaps more important, the results were stable two years later.
