Virginia has a Masters Degree in Social Work, Post-graduate Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy, and has been practicing couple and family therapy for over 7 years. She loves working with individuals, couples and families in need of support for stepfamily life. Being remarried into a blended family herself, she has a wealth of personal, professional and practical knowledge in working with remarried and recoupled partners with children. Within this specialty, she also specializes in working with individuals transitioning through divorce, dating, and relationship ambivalence, as well as parents needing support with parenting/step-parenting/single parenting issues. She is passionate about helping clients navigate the very normal and mostly unavoidable challenges in blending two families together. Virginia is empathetic, non-judgmental and loves to use humor with clients in the crazy wacky world of stepfamilyhood! She is also goal oriented, educational, and has a directive approach to help clients meet their goals and feel more connected and cohesive as a family.

The ultimate goal couples therapy is for couples to experience less distress and more happiness in their love relationships. Virginia’s focus is typically to help change destructive patterns of communication and facilitate new experiences to feeling closer and more understood by one another. With remarried/recoupled partners, stepfamily challenges can put tremendous pressure on a couple’s relationship. Differing parenting styles between parent and step-parent, step-parenting challenges, and high-conflict ex-partners are all common. Pragmatic problem solving based on stepfamily best practices and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) helps to change distressing patterns of communication so couples feel more understood and supported by one another. Virginia loves working with parents to first help them examine their own fears associated with their children and how these fears might be contributing to conflict, and then give tools to regulate their own internal state when their kids are acting out. When parents can “put on their own mask first”, they can respond in a more productive way that results in less conflict and a deeper connection with their children, both ways! Within child-step-parent relationships, the child’s developmental stage, grief over their parents divorce, loyalty to their other parent, and a step-parent disciplining too soon are common causes of conflict. She helps step-parents identify the reason behind the specific challenge and what changes might be helpful. When working with individuals who are in the divorce/life after divorce transition, she implements strategies to manage the big feelings (anger, anxiety, grief) associated with divorce as well as identifying things they would like to do differently in romantic relationships going forward.

Understanding EFT Couples Therapy Training

There are three levels of training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) that you will notice listed on our therapist profiles: Externship, Core Skills and Certification. It’s important to know what these levels of training are in choosing the right therapist for your needs, whether with us or someone else. All information below was taken directly from the accrediting body ICEEFT website.

  • Externship: A four-day, 30-hour training that includes the observation of live and video recorded couple and individual therapy sessions, presentations of theory and clinical techniques, skills training exercises, and discussion of specific cases, clinical material and issues.
  • Core Skills: Next level of training after Externship that includes 48 hours of advanced training over four 2-day workshops spanning over a year timeframe. A fifth optional 2-day workshop is often offered.
  • Certification: Requires Externship and Core Skills completion, 8 hours of supervision by a Certified EFT Supervisor, 4 letters of recommendation, and review of therapy excerpts by ICEEFT (accrediting body).
  • Supervision: It is essential for therapists to consult with other professionals in their field of expertise to ensure they are not only sustaining, but also continually improving their skill. The more consultation and supervision a therapist engages in, the better therapy they often provide.

You will also notice that our therapists’ rates are discounted by 15% for 75 minute sessions. It is important to explore both partners’ perspectives and go to the depth needed for long-term core change. For these reasons, couples therapy is regularly conducted for 75 minutes instead of the typical 50 minute sessions individuals typically utilize. We want to make these longer sessions affordable for everyone and have discounted these rates to make them accessible to all. (If you plan to submit for insurance reimbursement, be sure to ensure 75 minute sessions are covered by your insurance.)
