“Love is a constant process of tuning in, connecting, missing and misreading cues, disconnecting, repairing and finding deeper connection.”― Sue Johnson, Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships
Are you a gay or bisexual male couple struggling with communication issues? Are each of you having trouble getting your own needs met in your relationship? Do you often feel like you’re speaking entirely different love languages or struggling with competing attachment styles? All of this can easily make you feel depressed, anxious, and isolated. Relationship are supposed to be your secure base and when it is not going well it colors all else in your life.
Many of the couples I work with come to me in the states I just described and after working with me report having relationships where they can take up more space, communicate effectively, advocate for their needs, and where they end up replacing isolation with playfulness, creativity, and closeness in their relationships.
As a therapist trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), which is an evidence-based model for couples rooted in attachment theory, I take the time to go deeper with clients to create changes that will stick over the long term. I work in a conversational, interactive way that empowers couples to replace old narratives for empowering ones.
If any of this resonates, I’d be glad to set up a free initial phone consultation below:
