At Align Counseling, I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. EFT is an effective and evidence-based approach that prioritizes emotions as the key to understanding relationship patterns and promoting change. It focuses on identifying and reshaping negative cycles of interaction while fostering secure attachment and emotional bonding.
In EFT, we explore the underlying emotions and attachment needs that drive negative interaction patterns between partners. By gaining insight into these patterns and emotions, couples can break free from negative cycles and develop healthier ways of connecting.
During therapy, we will work collaboratively to identify and understand the root causes of conflict and disconnection. EFT provides a roadmap for healing and strengthening the emotional bond between partners, enhancing trust, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction.
You will learn how to communicate your needs and emotions effectively, fostering a secure attachment and a deeper understanding of one another. By creating a safe and supportive environment, you will be guided through the process of rebuilding and repairing your relationship.
EFT has proven successful in helping couples overcome a range of relationship issues, including communication difficulties, infidelity, unresolved conflicts, and intimacy challenges. It is a transformative therapy that can bring about lasting change and a renewed sense of connection.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an effective therapy technique used to treat trauma, anxiety, and various other mental health concerns. By stimulating the brain's natural healing abilities, EMDR helps individuals process distressing memories and experiences.
During EMDR therapy, you'll be guided to focus on specific traumatic memories or negative beliefs while engaging in bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, taps, or sounds. This bilateral stimulation allows your brain to reprocess the distressing memories in a new and adaptive way, leading to resolution and emotional healing.
The process involves identifying and targeting negative beliefs, emotions, and physical sensations associated with the trauma. As you engage in EMDR, you'll notice a decrease in the intensity of negative emotions and the emergence of more positive thoughts and feelings.
EMDR is a collaborative and structured therapy approach that respects your unique experiences and focuses on your strengths. It can help you gain new insights, enhance self-awareness, and develop healthier coping mechanisms. EMDR is also effective in addressing issues such as phobias, panic attacks, performance anxiety, and grief.
We are passionate about helping individuals overcome the effects of trauma and reach their full potential. We will provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your experiences and guide you through the EMDR process.
If you're seeking relief from past traumas, distressing memories, or debilitating anxiety, EMDR may be the right approach for you. Together, we will work towards healing, resilience, and a brighter future.
