Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Fort Collins, CO
Our therapists are trained in sex therapy techniques that allow you to feel greater emotional intimacy and improve your physical connection. We treat a variety of sexual concerns in talk therapy, including desire discrepancy between partners, struggles with sexual desire, and more specific sexual issues.
Our clinicians are trained in evidence-based methods for healing from trauma, including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS). The experience is still remembered, but the fight, flight, or freeze response from the original event is resolved. Extensive research on EMDR in particular supports that we can heal from traumatic experiences in body, mind, and spirit, if you’ll join us.
We are especially experienced in working with couples to: Build trust and heal from violations of trust De-escalate destructive patterns of conflict Develop greater intimacy and closeness Foster acceptance of one another’s differences and appreciation for each other Work through the effects of stressors on the relationship (e.g., life transitions, work or family stress) Grow sexual intimacy and satisfaction
With over 300 cumulative hours of direct training in EFT and over 100 hours of mentorship from the best-of-the-best supervisors in the model, we love this method. EFT is the most evidence-based couples therapy method, with 90% of couples improving their relationship with this method and 75% no longer meeting criteria for relationship distress after treatment. You will learn how to have connecting conversations that keep you out of destructive and painful patterns.
asha is also trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 2), and can teach you the communication skills known to be associated with happier relationships as a supplement to the our deeper work with EFT. Using the most effective methods, we will develop an understanding of the pattern in which you’re caught, learn how to relate in a way that will deepen your understanding of one another, and restructure your interaction with each other for true connection.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) has been demonstrated in many research studies to be an effective way to help the brain process and heal from trauma. When distress remains, the upsetting images, thoughts, and emotions may create feelings of overwhelm, of being back in that moment, or of being “frozen in time.” EMDR therapy helps the brain process these memories and allows normal healing to continue.
