Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling in Fort Lauderdale

Successful, loving relationships do not just happen to lucky people, they are the result of continuous effort.

Whether you are a married couple of 20-plus years or a pair beginning a new journey, couples therapy can help relationships. It’s not uncommon for some couples to shy away from therapy due to the belief that counseling is reserved for those on the brink. Although couples therapy is often sought during an intense point in the relationship, it’s also an effective tool early on to increase connection and relationship satisfaction.

Couples Therapy teaches partners how to manage conflict, increase effective communication, and enhance intimacy & friendship.

Our therapists work with couples of diverse backgrounds and are experienced working with gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, polyamorous, and heterosexual relationships.

Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFCT)

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a well-known humanistic approach to psychotherapy, formulated in the 1980s, and based on the research of couples. It is an empirically validated intervention that was developed in tandem with the science of adult attachment. EFCT is used with varied cultural groups and educational levels, as well as with traditional and non-traditional couples, including same-sex couples.

Emotionally focused therapy can benefit couples by working on the attachment relationship of the couple. Attachment views individuals as innately relational, social, and wired for intimate bonding with others. The EFCT model prioritizes emotion and emotional regulation as the key components in the individual experience and relationship interactions.

In intimate relationships, you bring your own understanding of love relationships that often don’t line up with that of your partner. EFCT allows the couple to restructure their emotional experience and develop a structural approach to interactions with one another.

Imago Relationship Therapy

Imago relationship therapy was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and his Wife, Dr. Helen Hunt, as a highly effective therapy modality for couples.

The term Imago means “image” in Latin, it is a reference to the “unconscious image of familiar love.” It suggests that there is a semblance between the aggravations couples experience in adult relationships and early life experiences. For instance, if one partner was parented with criticism as a child, then he or she will be reactive to criticism in a committed relationship.

In Imago therapy, clients learn how to use the Imago Dialogue, a tool to change the couple’s communication from blame and reactivity to empathy and understanding, promoting healing and growth in a relationship.
