Marriage can be very difficult as well as very fulfilling. Marriages have ups and downs and sometimes can get stuck. There may be problems in communication, the sex life gets stuck in a rut, the couple are dealing with problems such as in-laws, children, work stress or other problems, or there may be hurts that have happened such as lying, cheating or affairs. At the Bay Area Center for Couples, we work with couples around all sorts of issues related to problems within the relationship, problems outside of the relationships, or the individual problems that affect the relationship.
At the Bay Area Center for Couples Therapy, we work with our couples using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a highly effective form of couples therapy. When a relationship is going well, you feel you can turn to your partner and they will be there for you as well as feeling loved and accepted by your partner. When relationships aren't going well, we may feel like our partner isn't there for us when we turn to them to discuss our needs or when we need them for support. We may not even feel like they really love or accept us. With EFT, we can help change this as well as help you develop tools for communication.
