EFT Communication Assessment with Dr. Bordieri
Over time, all couples develop negative communication patterns that can leave partners feeling disconnected and misunderstood.
This structured assessment draws from the wisdom of the EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) approach and will help you and your partner understand why even small arguments can escalate so quickly. You will gain insight into the needs that drive your negative cycle along with strategies to escape these rigid patterns that keep you and your partner stuck in conflict and disconnection.
The EFT Communication Assessment is psychoeducational in nature but can offer you and your partner insights into your relationship even without additional services. It can also serve as a foundational step for starting EFT therapy (Research has consistently shown that EFT therapy helps 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery with 90% reporting significant improvements in their relationship). This assessment is equally appropriate for couples in current relationship distress and couples seeking to prevent future distress.
You and your partner will each complete a brief assessment form that Dr. Bordieri will review with you and your partner in-depth during your 90-minute assessment session along with some initial strategies for overcoming these patterns.
You can also upgrade to a 10-Hour Intensive that will continue to expand your skills of de-escalation utilizing the EFT model and drawing from some additional communication resources from the Gottman Method. The total service time for this package is 10 hours and intensive sessions are scheduled in blocks of 90-minutes or more within 1-2 months.
