Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Families | Denver, DTC, Centennial
Escalation, defensiveness, and withdrawal are common interactive patterns that occur between partners in conflict. Many couples begin to feel stuck and the present issue tends to go unresolved, creating resentment, blame, helplessness, and distance. These unresolved wounds plague future interactions and discontent sets in. This is one example of an unhealthy interactive cycle.
We can help!
We will help you identify the negative interactive patterns that have been created and reinforced through repetition over time. This will allow you to begin the process of healing. Our goal is to help partners and family members to engage emotionally with one another rather than minimizing, labeling, blaming, criticizing, or controlling the other. We will help you understand your personal emotional experience as well as your partners or family members to create new healthy responses and interactions. This is called a corrective emotional experience. This new way of relating can naturally facilitate deeper intimacy and attachment. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has been researched extensively with favorable outcomes and long lasting change. It is our goal to personalize your experience and to create a warm, safe, and structured environment to promote secure attachment bonds and healthy patterns of relating.
Maxine Hong Kingston
To me success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world — that I am able to change it in positive ways.
Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered there is opportunity for growth.
