Amanda Sasek has advanced training in research-based approaches to couples therapy including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is endorsed by the American Psychological Association as scientifically proven, and heralded by the New York Times and Time as the couples therapy with the highest rate of success. Rigorous studies have shown EFT has a remarkable 75 percent success rate (that’s more than twice the success rate studies have shown for other forms of couples therapy). Research also shows that these effects are long-lasting.
When love doesn’t work, it hurts. EFT identifies the basic problem in distressed relationships: emotional disconnection. Most couple disagreements are actually protesting this emotional disconnection. Distressed partners may use different words, but in general they are asking, Are you there for me? Do I matter to you? Will you be there for me when I need you?
Using EFT, we will look at your whole relationship, the patterns in your relationship, how you may have gotten stuck in patterns of distance and disconnection, and how you can shift into more positive, emotionally-connected patterns. We will work with you to identify your current interaction patterns and help you change the ones that hurt your relationship.
Rebuilding a lost connection is possible! We will work to help you experience an emotional connection you may never have felt with your partner, or rekindle an emotional bond you may not have felt in a long time. We will help you create a relationship full of love, connection, and emotional fulfillment. See the creator of EFT, Sue Johnson explain this model of therapy here
