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.
