What is emotionally focused couples therapy?

  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is a structured approach to couples counseling created by Dr. Sue Johnson.  

  • EFT considers the importance of adult attachment and our individual needs for bonding and connection.

  • EFT has been validated by over 20 years of empirical research including research on change processes and the nature of marital distress.

  • EFT focuses on patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and reorganizing emotional responses to create a secure bond between partners.

  • My training as an EFT therapist helps me to work effectively with a couple as they discover and come to understand their negative “dance" and disrupt the patterns of that dance.
