Treatment Approach
Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT fosters the creation of a secure bond between partners. It helps individuals become more aware of their emotional experiences and better communicate their emotional needs and longings. Couples can recognize their negative patterns and, as the treatment progresses, create more positive experiences, leading to more meaningful conversations.

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

In a relationship where one partner has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), both individuals may encounter unique challenges. However, they can work together as a team while practicing skillful strategies. At times, a partner can help or be involved in exposure exercises, whether during therapy sessions or at home. The goal is to help the couple stay connected while facing OCD struggles, thereby fostering values-based and fulfilling relationships.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT focuses on cultivating psychological flexibility. It helps individuals develop a different relationship with difficult thoughts, make room for unpleasant feelings, and learn new ways to interact with them. Our ACT-trained therapists will assist individuals in identifying their values in romantic relationships and learning how to make values-based choices, moving towards more fulfilling relationships.

"I highly recommend Kulliki. As a therapist and a mother, she is empathetic and warm, which helped me connect right away with her and share my story. When we met her, I had unresolved anger and grief at becoming a mother and losing my independence that were impacting my relationship with my husband. Kulliki helped me express these emotions while realizing I was judging myself too harshly and provided me with tools and strategies for the times when I felt falling down in a rabbit's hole of self-judgement. I was able to reconnect with my husband and regained confidence and acceptance as a woman, a mom and a professional."
