Welcome, I am Deborah Grossi LPC, a Professional Counselor licensed by the State of Michigan. I specialize in healing love relationships: including marriages, dating couples, and family relationships using Emotionally Focused Therapy. My offices are located in Bloomfield Hills and Novi, Michigan.
Emotionally Focused Therapy gives me the tools to help couples and familes reconnect in warm and loving marriages and family atmospheres once again.
Why try Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy™ (EFT)?
Because science now shows us the secrets to adult love
Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) is the new scientifically validated way to get help and is a 9 step tested intervention to help you get your needs met in your marriage. I use these powerful techniques to improve your marriage or love relationship quickly. Many of us have a very hard time getting the love we need in our marriages. Many times we may try to help our spouse/friend understand what is not working for us and very often it turns into an argument/total meltdown and nothing gets resolved. The same problems are often brought up over and over again. Why are these problems brought up time and again? Our spouse does not seem to understand the feelings they have caused. EFT is the perfect solution to help you with these issues and many more.
EFT is a blend of coaching and therapy to lead the way to a happier, more loving marriage or any love relationship. Unlike traditional couple’s counseling it looks at the problems your relationship is facing now and the ways you can correct them, rather than spending much of your time looking at your childhood. It has been shown to create LASTING change long after the EFT 9 steps are completed.
- Learn Important lessons “Sometimes the role of something is to be like the grain of sand in the oyster –it’s there to create such an irritation that it will cause us to grow to our greatest potential.” I have seen that love relationships can be one of those irritants. So what are the secrets of turning irritants and sorrow into oysters and pearls? The secret is to learn from the pain and frustration. So you end up in a stronger, happier marriage than ever before.
- Remove Obstructions to rebuilding your love relationship which may have been challenged by actions that were not supportive of your true feelings of love and connection with yourself, your partner and, family members such as:
Recovering from Infidelity
Disillusionment with relationship
Loss of love or affection
Separation and divorce issues
Assertiveness training as a means to improve relationships
One partner unwilling to attend therapy
Did you know nearly half of all marriages end in divorce – And not because couples did not try to repair their marriage. Hostile communication is a predictor of divorce. It’s not if you fight it’s the way you fight. Most fights do not lead to resolution.
Four common obstructions in communication:
*Belittling and criticizing
*Clamming up and refusing to talk
*Talking with contempt
*Defensive behavior i.e. unable to listen to or understand your partners feelings.
