"Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing, and finding deeper connection. It is a dance of meeting and parting and finding each other again. Minute to minute and day to day." Dr. Sue Johnson

 

 

 

Couples Therapy

We can’t have relationship if we don’t feel a secure, safe connection with our partner. So many couples reach out to Cypress to help heal their relationship and many times their connection feels frayed and fragile. When the foundation of the relationship seems eroded it is impossible to navigate all the rest of what the world has to throw at us. Infidelity, ongoing conflict, addiction, abuse, growing apart, busyness, loneliness… all these struggles show up when we lose sight of our partner being there for us.  

Through the Emotionally Focused Therapy model (EFT) we uncover painful patterns of interaction where deep hurt and wounding has left us fearful to let our walls down with each other. The distress of this disconnection is almost too much to bear at times and we move to angry or hurtful pursuit of our partner, or withdrawal and disconnection to get away from the pain. We can slow this emotional dance down. With EFT, we can start to create connection, and from this secure base, begin the work to repair the wounding we often find is fueling the conflict and pain in your marriage. You may not ever have your old marriage back, but what you will find is that there is the potential to have a marriage you never knew was possible. 

It’s not too late.  Contact us today so we can begin this work together.
