• Do you feel like nothing is changing?

  • Are you looking for answers, and fed up with just getting more questions?

  • Or have you been in therapy before, and felt like you were only spinning your wheels?

There are three related components to our therapeutic approach that allow us to accelerate ways to get to the answers, with a focus on getting unstuck, unlocking the real feelings at the heart of the issue, and dealing with the core of the problem.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) – By working with the real feelings underlying a problem issue, Emotionally Focused Therapy is used to help move couples, families and individuals in a structured way from pain to recovery. Research validated over the past 20 years has shown that 90% of couples receiving EFT made significant improvements. EFT has been used with a wide variety of people and problem situations. EFT is based on clear conceptualizations of adult relationships and feelings, uses a collaborative method between therapist and patient(s) and is structured on specific key moments of change. The main goals of EFT are to expand long-established emotional responses, to shift relationship dynamics, and to create new secure attachments.

Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) – The AEDP model of psychotherapy is oriented on transformation and healing. Its roots are in many psychotherapeutic disciplines including attachment theory, affective neuroscience, and body-focused treatment. AEDP works with the intense emotional experiences that are part and parcel of being alive and the foundation of joyful living, but that also can lead to unproductive defensive strategies when they become overwhelming. The main goals of AEDP are to nurture the emergence of new and healing ways of being through the in-depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experiences.

Relational Psychotherapy – this approach to individual psychotherapy is “bottom up.” Our experiential modality focuses on the here-and-now moments in therapy sessions in which your true relationship and emotional patterns emerge. By using the therapist-client relationship as a forum in which to explore your experience of the world, our clinicians are able to trace your emotional responses back to past trauma to help you identify the emotional logic of your current relationship strategies and develop a new, self-affirming relationship with yourself that is vital and growth-oriented.
