What is EFT?
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, is a highly researched, and evidence-based therapy that focuses on the emotional bond between partners, and presumes that most relational problems arise from a disruption in this bond. It helps partners learn not only to be more open and trusting with each other, but also to reach out for one another and take emotional risks more effectively.
WHAT IS EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective therapy for the treatment of both past and recent trauma. EMDR can help relieve emotional distress, reformulate negative beliefs about self, and can help you to feel more overall well-being in your life.
I use EMDR to help with:
- Trauma & PTSD
- Anxiety & Stress Reduction
- Anger Management
- Self-Defeating Behavioral Patterns & Beliefs
- Low Self-Esteem
