Dr. Neha Pancholi Patel & Dr. Joanna Chango-James both specialize in marriage and couples counseling. They draw from Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) which is considered an evidence-based treatment for marriage and couples therapy.
Emotion focused therapy is a form of treatment in which couples learn about attachment styles that influence interactions in the context of relationships. Our therapists help couples form more secure attachments that lead to improvements in intimacy and connection. In this approach, couples learn to better respond to one another’s emotions.
Dr. Amanda Skowron draws upon Acceptance & Commitment Therapy to conduct couples therapy with her clients. In this approach, couples learn to be mindful of their own distress and the ways in which they’re responding to their distress in the context of marriage. Dr. Skowron helps clients understand their shared and mutual values to work to respond to their emotions and thoughts in a way that is consistent with their values.
Dr. Diana Gaydusek also treats couples using an Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy. In this approach, couples work on acceptance of each others’ emotions while working on identifying changes they can make in the relationship to accommodate the needs of their partner. Dr. Gaydusek uses this couples therapy approach to help partners communicate more effectively and find ways of relating and interacting with one another that gets them out of the patterns they often find themselves stuck in.
Dr. Katy Higgins Neyland treats couples using Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for couples. This approach works on identifying each partner’s personality, cultural influences, life circumstances/stressors, life transitions and environmental factors that may be affecting the relationship. Dr. Higgins Neyland focuses on helping clients manage these various factors by helping them identify their thoughts, the way their responding to their emotions, and what behaviors they are engaging in within the relationship context. She helps clients understand how they can modify their emotional reactions and behaviors in a way that strengthens the relationship.
