Disconnection in relationships can keep partners unseen, frustrated, exhausted, and alone. I work with couples to:
-Build trust and heal from violations of trust
-De-escalate destructive patterns of conflict
-Develop greater intimacy and closeness
-Foster acceptance of one another’s differences and appreciation for each other
-Work through the effects of stressors on the relationship (e.g., life transitions, work or family stress)
As a scientist-practitioner (15+ research publications), I am devoted to effective, scientifically proven methods that forever change lives and relationships. I have advanced training in the most effective couples therapy methods (Emotion-Focused Therapy and Gottman Method Therapy). We will develop an understanding of the pattern in which you’re caught, learn how to relate in a way that will deepen your understanding of one another, and restructure your interaction with each other for true connection. You can break out of your typical pattern and form a more secure, satisfying, life-enhancing bond. In nourishing a relationship, we build a safe haven of comfort and joy which gives the strength to face life challenges. This powerful force, called love, is the most important thing in this life. And this is why I do this work; to add more safety, love, and joy into this world.
You can expect kindness, compassion, warmth, and genuineness from me. Therapy with me is a space where you will be accepted- not judged. There is a healing power to exploring your experience in a space where you experience curiosity about your experience, being fully listened to, and unconditional positive regard. I am also enthusiastic about my work and passionate about your growth; will bring an active energy into our sessions as we move you toward your goals.
I will guide you in having conversations that will move you and your partner toward a more secure relationship with greater joy. You don’t have to live another day with a sense of wanting more and wondering how to move toward the relationship you are yearning for. Although we all face struggles in our relationships, it can be difficult to reach out for help. You may wonder if therapy will even help. I want to reassure you that if you invest yourself in the process, it will. If you are ready for a more fulfilling relationship, I am here to accompany you on your path to genuine transformation. I hope you do reach out here or at www.TashaSeiterTherapy.com. I would love to help.
