My approach to therapy for those struggling with intimate relationships is integrative and tailored to the individual's unique situation. I utilize a blend of therapeutic techniques, including Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which are designed to uncover and address the psychological underpinnings of relational difficulties. These methods help clients identify and change detrimental patterns, improve communication skills, and foster emotional resilience.

During sessions, we work together to explore personal histories, communication styles, and emotional responses that may be contributing to current relationship issues. This exploration is aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of oneself and one’s partners, which is crucial for building healthier and more satisfying relationships.

I also focus on enhancing emotional intimacy by helping clients express their needs and desires more clearly and confidently within their relationships. This process involves building skills for managing conflict constructively, developing greater empathy, and nurturing forgiveness and trust between partners.

By providing a safe space for individuals to discuss and work through their relationship challenges, my therapy sessions are designed to empower clients to forge more meaningful connections and to experience greater fulfillment in their intimate relationships.
