It is vital that we stay connected during this pandemic, and that support is available to help get through this challenging time. I’m currently offering TELETHERAPY to couples and individuals via securevideo.com, a HIPPA compliant, live video conferencing.


In-person workshops are on hold for the time being. However, do email me to inquire about

You are not alone. I am here for you to help you and your loved one get back on track in your relationship with a sense of closeness, connection, and healing. When stuck patterns take over our relationships, we can feel alone, misunderstood, and blamed. Find the path back to secure connection guided by a map laid out in attachment science, the study of human love and connection. 

 

I am here for you in your personal growth. Individual therapy is a safe place to soften the blocks to joy, connection, and authenticity in your life. When life becomes overwhelming, know you are not alone and there is support to navigating what otherwise feels unbearable in isolation.

Counseling Approach

Emotionally focused therapy is a research-based approach that helps couples, individuals, and families access their softer feelings beneath stuck relationship patterns and share them successfully to build secure, meaningful, and healing connection. We are truly healthier and happier when emotionally connected to our special other and to ourselves.

 A family systems perspective: Recognizes not only your own emotional processes and stuck patterns, but also the interpersonal relationship patterns in your primary relational experiences—both currently and in your family of origin.

 

An attachment framework: Recognizes the deep importance of our emotional bonds with primary relationships in our lives (ie spouse, parent, inner self). Helps us explore our deep longings to be loved for who we are and the fears that arise when we don’t feel secure in these relationships. Explores how we see ourselves, how we believe others see us, how we view the world; why we long to connect, why we don’t; how we love; why it matters. (Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT); see (www.iceeft.com).

Resilience and Strength-based framework: Informs the belief that each person and family has personal strengths, resources, and/or faith to bring to their counseling experience and their journey towards a healthier and more satisfying life pattern.

Responsibility: In this safe and supportive relationship with their therapist, patients will be expected to collaboratively create their treatment goals, and to learn to use their strengths to work towards identified goals.

Team approach: Patients can also expect, with their permission, that their counselor will make an effort to collaborate with other members of their healthcare team (ie: primary care provider, other counselors, other identified support) in order to provide whole-person care.

EFT Supervision Consults

I am an ICEEFT certified EFT Supervisor which means I can effectively help you deepen your EFT skills and work towards EFT certification if you choose.

My EFT supervision style is focused and warm. Our meetings are designed to meet you at your level in learning the model of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and to help you grow and develop as an EFT Therapist. I provide both one on one and group consults. My ICEEFT supervision counts toward your EFT certification from ICEEFT. (minimum of eight are needed).

Email me at reclark@lifespanfamilyhealthcare.com to chat about your needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
