Specialized Relationship Counseling | Couples Therapy | Marriage Counseling in San Diego, CA
In your relationship, do you experience emotions going from zero to sixty in a split second? Are you stuck in a rut, returning to the same conflict over and over with the same results every time? Do you feel unsuccessful in your relationship or marriage? You are not alone. Many couples have trouble with communication and conflict resolution. Don’t make the mistake of letting these issues go unresolved. Take a proactive approach to get your relationship or marriage back on track. Relationship Counseling can help.
If you are at a place where you are searching for ways to repair, rebuild or preserve your relationship– contact me. Think of me as your expert counseling guide. As a Licensed Couples Therapist, I provide a comfortable, nonjudgmental and safe environment to discuss your goals and the obstacles getting in the way of connection in your relationship. During Relationship Counseling, I will help you discover the tips and tools you need to experience a healthy and truly rewarding relationship.
What I have learned from experience and ongoing education is that underlying most of the conflicts that couples experience is a missed opportunity to feel listened-to and accepted. Couples get into trouble when they don’t have a full sense of safety and security with each other. Without emotional safety and security (ex: “When I need you, you’ll be there.”; “You’re responsive to my needs.”) it’s almost impossible to maintain a sense of closeness, belonging and intimacy. That is why my focus as a therapist is on your primary needs – feeling close, secure and understood.
Using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), we will identify rigid patterns preventing true closeness in your relationship. We’ll explore those patterns to discover what is really going on inside, individually and in the relationship. Next, I’ll guide you to more effective communication. Through this process, you’ll develop the closeness you want and make your relationship that ‘safe haven’ you deserve and need. Through our efforts, you’ll become the expert of yourself and your relationships.
