Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples is based on attachment theory. The goal is to rebuild the deep connections that make relationships satisfying and strong. Most couples come to me asking for ways to improve communications. The reactive communication pattern is an indication that deep emotions and needs are being triggered. I help partners to validate their own, and each others’, primary emotions and attachment needs, turning vulnerability into strength. Healthy attachment says: I know you will be there for me . . . and you need me, too.
