Sarah Newcomer, MS IMFT
Sex and Relationship Therapist
As a relationship specialist, I am different. My client is your relationship. I will work with you to help you get unstuck from old patterns. I use Emotion Focused therapy as well as Gottman method in a structured and focused process to help you get back on the path to connection. Getting unstuck looks different for everyone, but this is where I can help with my training and expertise.
This isn't a "one size fits all" situation, this is your relationship, so treatment is tailored to you.
I will provide insight on research, approaches, and options that we can look at together. I will be your guide in learning how to better communicate and create better intimacy, based on goals we create together based on interviews with you and your partner as well as the Gottman Relationship Check-up. I provide the science but you are the expert in your relationship. My goal is to "work me out of a job". I want you and your partner(s) to feel empowered to create lasting change and create greater connection.
I am an active therapist
I won't sit there and look at your blankly for 90 minutes, where you question if I am even paying attention. I will engage you in the process because we are in this together.
I will ask things that take a deeper look into your situation, your experiences and thoughts like:
What is your experience when you argue?
What happens in you when they walk away?
I will reflect back to make sure I understand, because YOU'RE the expert
I am a direct therapist
I will challenge things that are keeping you and your partner(s) from getting out of the old patterns that feel familiar, but are painful.
I am defiantly not a "stereotypical" therapist who uses psychobabble. I will laugh with you and cry with you. I have an authentic and laid back personality, but am not afraid to get to the heart of what brings you to me.
I invite you to look over my training and experience to see the difference seeing a relationship specialist can bring to your love life. See it here.
