Laura Reames, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Elk Grove
"Are you feeling stressed, depleted and stuck? Do you find yourself repeating behavior patterns that don't help you move forward? Are you noticing you are drifting apart in your relationships rather than experiencing the closeness you desire?" Taking a step to seek help can open the door of hope. I believe we all have the ability to change. I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist for couples (EFT) if you want to reconnect. I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), FSAP (Feeling State Addiction Protocol) for trauma and shifting negative beliefs and behavior patterns.
My passion is empowering individuals, couples, children and families to see their strengths as resources in life's challenges and to help shift patterns to more satisfying outcomes. I assist with relationship/couples counseling, family functioning, women's issues, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, life transitions, trauma and parenting.
Relationships have predictable dance steps that create closeness or distance. Do you want to dance a different dance? Are you ready to make changes that that can move you closer to the satisfaction you desire? Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples is research based and effective. Call for an appointment.
