Emotionally Focused Therapy is an attachment based model of counseling based on validated outcome research, that focuses on helping disconnected couples and individuals restore emotional safety, connection and intimacy in their lives and relationships. EFT Therapists have a clear road map to help get to the heart of a person's distress, and help them create change that lasts. It has earned the current Gold Standard of Mental Health Counseling Models, with research demonstrating it's efficacy and long lasting results more than any other model of counseling.

EFT is effective for couples, individuals and families. Based on attachment theory and pioneered by Dr. Sue Johnson, the need to form close bonds and connect to a close loved one is a universal human need. It can feel very painful and hopeless when we experience disconnection in our primary love relationships. Get connected with an EFT therapist today and start on the road to healing your connection and restoring intimacy to your relationship.
