Couple Therapy

The Emotion-Focused approach to couples therapy is empirically supported. Dr. Serine Warwar and Associates have trained with Dr. Leslie Greenberg, a leading world renowned clinician and researcher who co-developed Emotion-Focused Therapy for couples. Dr. Warwar and Dr. Greenberg have also co-developed an empirically validated treatment model for helping couples resolve and forgive emotional injuries. Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy has been shown to be highly effective in creating connection and restructuring a couple’s emotional relationship in a deep and lasting way.

Some of the issues that we help couples with include but are not limited to:

  • Relationship repair following an emotional or physical affair
  • Helping couples resolve emotional injuries and let go of hurt, anger and forgive
  • Conflict and negative communication issues
  • Enhancing communication and deepening emotion connection
  • Sex therapy
  • Sexual difficulties including loss of sexual desire or function
  • Sexual incompatibility issues
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Difficulties in blended families
  • Problems with in-laws
  • Parenting stress

Rather than being guided by images of how to be, people need to attend to how they actually are and to respect this.
