Couples - Carol J Henry PhD
Acceptence Therapy (formerly called Integrative Behavorial Couples Therapy - IBCT)

Acceptence Therapy combines techniques of action oriented behavioral change with strategies to cultivate acceptance.

This framework assumes that relationship problems result from: This therapy strives to achieve greater acceptance and intimacy between partners, as well as to make deliberate changes in target behaviors.

Each partner becomes more open to adapting to the other and accommodating in ways that reduce conflict. Partners communicate more clearly and negotiate and problem-solve more effectively since they are no longer adversaries.
In my work with couples I also help them to make positive behavioral changes, learn effective communication strategies and become more effective at solving conflicts.

For five years I was a research therapist through a nationally funded study of the Acceptence Therapy, through the University of Washington and UCLA. Since we proved the effectiveness of Acceptence Therapy I have used it as a main orientation of my couples therapy.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Emotionally focused therapy assumes that emotions which arise in response to relationship issues are the result of the wish for deep emotional connection with the partner. Using EFT I can help clients understand and manage their emotions while forming a closer emotional attachment with their partner. As the positive emotional responsiveness to each other increases, the result is a more satisfying and happy relationship.
