Couples and Marriage Counseling

  • Do you feel alone in your marriage?
  • Do you constantly feel criticized and judged?
  • Do you feel like you are just getting by day-to-day? 
  • You can’t let go of what your spouse did to you? 
  • Do your ‘talks’ keep ending in the same old argument?

Statistics show that one spouse in over 50% of marriages will answer yes to at least one, if not more, of these questions.

How can marriage counseling help?

Marriage is one of the most important relationships we will ever have, but it can also be one of the most complicated. Despite the fact that America is the most prosperous society, we face an epidemic of depression and anxiety based on emotional starvation. Johnson County couples often feel disconnected in their most important relationship…their marriage.

Terri utilizes Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples reconnect with one another. She uses therapy and marriage counseling in Overland Park, KS, to help couples recognize the patterns they have established in their relationship and offers tools and strategies to break those patterns to create a renewed sense of safety and security with your spouse.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) research shows:

  • More than 70% of couples turned their relationship around from distressed – no matter how distressed – to happy in 15 – 20 sessions and
  • More than 90% of couples “significantly improved.

EFT is couples and marriage counseling therapy based on 20 years of clinical studies with proven results for couples in crisis. EFT couples and marriage counseling is based on therapy with your spouse in the safe environment of Terri’s office to help you create a haven of safety and strength in your marriage. Marriage is based on a connection with your spouse that makes you stronger as an individual and in your marriage.

Arguing and fighting hide the hidden agenda and focus on surface problems instead of the root issues.

Terri uses EFT to help you and your spouse move past the surface problems you face into the root issues that brought your relationship to this point. In these root issues, Terri guides you to recognize the destructive patterns of behavior and communication you and your spouse have created in your relationship. Couples recognize these patterns and behaviors are the enemy in the marriage, not each other.

It is very difficult to seek help from a therapist. You keep hoping it will change or that you will read the right self-help book that will bring about change. Yet nothing seems to work.

Terri provides a couples and marriage counseling atmosphere for couples to connect to one another, engage in pivotal conversation, listen to each other’s needs, plus articulate their own needs to their partner while drawing them closer. All in a clear, simple conversation where parties feel in control about their deepest needs to feel connected and secure in the relationship.

Many therapists work with relationships but do not specialize in helping couples. They have NOT been taught an effective relationship therapy that actually works…outcome-researched therapy.

Terri‘s passion is your relationship. Terri believes in the effectiveness of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the benefits it will offer your partner relationship. Terri recognizes that all relationships/marriages are as unique as the people who are in them. Terri allows the EFT process to reveal the unique qualities of each partner and how these qualities work in the relationship.

Research shows that most couples wait 6 years on average before seeking help.
