Would you like to energize your work with couples?

  • Learning EFT was personally and professionally transformational for me. EFT makes sense of human connection like no other way of understanding and being with couples. We have a new understanding of the value of staying present, in the here-and-now process and in the experience of moments of emotional vulnerability. I am most grateful for the times of witnessing when couples navigate differently the “ups and downs” in their lives.

    Lucy Raizman, LCSW, LMFT
    EFT Certified Therapist
  • EFT colleagues and the international community and well-focused supervision provide all kinds of personal and professional benefits, helping me become the kind of psychoemotional healer I want to be – not the least of which is a sense of security, the knowing feeling that I can reach resources that support this risk-taking work I am doing.

    Nancy Logue, Ph.D.
  • I love doing EFT with couples because I love to see the hope of intimate connection being rekindled. I feel privileged to be part of the hard work couples do in session, and I am often moved by their ability to risk reaching out and letting each other come closer.

    Cheryl Sparks, MA, LPC
  • Practicing EFT gives me the opportunity to be truly emotionally present. I am able to create a safe place in which the couple can find their way toward greater heartfelt connection. EFT provides a map for this bonding to take place, and witnessing this occur is remarkably rewarding.

    Debra Rosenberg, LCSW, BCD
    Certified EFT Therapist
  • Learning and practicing EFT has revolutionized my life, both personally and professionally. With this elegant, deeply humanizing model, I am able to help couples make sense of their often longstanding distress and offer a road map to the secure bonding we all long for.

    Wendy Merson, LMFT
    Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor
  • When I first heard Sue Johnson [creator of EFT] speak 15 years ago, it was as though a bell rung, and I instinctively knew this model got to the truth more than any I’d ever known. As a therapist, not only are these results heartening, but the process of EFT has allowed me to see what’s at the heart of the problem and gives me a clear map to address it.

    Fran Neali, RN, MSN, CS, LMFT
    Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor-in-Training
  • Being emotionally present with couples as they access their longings for closeness and share their vulnerability with their partner is very touching. There is a bit of magic in the room as they create a more secure and loving bond. I always feel honored to be part of their process. I often say that with EFT I am helping the world…one couple at a time.”

    Robin Sesan, Ph.D.
    Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor
  • Working with distressed couples often used to feel like I was lost in the woods, around midnight, with just a small flashlight…Learning EFT was like having someone hand me a high-beam flashlight, a GPS and a back-up crew to call in emergencies.
