I have been there. The truth is, there is no need to keep riding that emotional roller coaster—things can ease up. I specialize in couples therapy because I have experienced the power of a skilled well-trained therapist who is dedicated to guiding couples out of the stuckness.
Ready to take the next step?
I didn't see my own role in the patterns I was a part of in my own relationships. This led me through a series of relationships that ended up doing more harm than good. It negatively impacted my own mental health and created a lot of stress that bled into other parts of my life. I was anxious all the time and struggled to be able to focus on things outside of the relationship...
It took me a while to see how these toxic relationship patterns were tied to my own behavior and how my attachment style impacted how I approached relationships.
Struggling to cope with the aftermath of these relationships led my current partner and me to seek couples therapy. In sessions with a therapist specialized in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, everything just started clicking. I began to grasp how my past experiences shaped my behavior in relationships, contributing to damaging cycles that kept repeating.
Discovering where I fit into this cycle and understanding my own attachment style unlocked a new level of closeness and vulnerability in my relationship, ultimately leading to an engagement with an incredible person. It was a journey that taught me to tune into my own emotions and the transformative impact of having a skilled couples therapist by our side.
We've become familiar with our patterns, creating a sense of security that empowered me to pursue a career I'm passionate about. I've embraced being a real-life example of how Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has genuinely influenced and enriched my life.
