While working with couples, Dontrell supports partners who may feel distressed, overwhelmed or exhausted from trying to fix their relationship. He is ICEEFT trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) which is the research based method used at Wellness. EFT focuses on repairing rifts and strengthening relationship bonds.
Relationship distress is best identified when partners feel invisible, distant, unheard or unappreciated by each other and typically find themselves stuck in a negative cycle; having the same unproductive recurring conversations.
When couples can get unstuck and step out of their negative cycle, they can heal from relationship distress. It’s not easy, but when partners can track their negative cycle, see their patterns and make sense of their hurtful interactions, things start to change organically.
In addition to working at Wellness, Dontrell’s background includes working with neurodivergent children and their families. He also teaches ballroom dancing. These experiences help make him a keen observer of human behavior..
