Meet Us, join us
We're the therapists
with some of the best training in the world to help relationships.
Therapists trained in EFT have been trained using the "gold-standard" of couples therapy. This model, grounded in attachment theory, is currently the best-delineated and most empirically validated approach to relationship distress of the past 25 years. It is present-focused, non-blaming, humanistic and helpful to couples with diverse cultural backgrounds as well those who are LGBTQ.
Let us help you live and love better. Reach out today!
What is EFT?
EFT is based on clear, explicit conceptualizations of marital distress and adult love that is supported by extensive research on relationship distress, attachment and romantic bonds. This model is collaborative and respectful of clients. It is a combination of Rogerian (client-centered), experiential, and systemic techniques and interventions. The change process has been mapped into three stages and nine steps. EFT has also been applied to different kinds of problems (for example, individuals, families, trauma, addiction, etc.) and populations.
Who We Are
The South Florida Community for EFT provides opportunities for mental health professions to learn the practice of EFT.
We are also a supportive network of local therapists with varying amounts of training in EFT who wish to support each other clinically and create a referral network.
All official professional training events are led by certified EFT trainers recognized by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (ICEEFT.com) directed by Dr. Sue Johnson. Additional events, training and social activities for therapists and/or clients to promote EFT are hosted by professionals in the community.
We are committed to fostering the development of a community of EFT trained couple and family therapists in this region to fill the community's need for competent therapists. We work to increase public awareness of EFT as an effective treatment for strengthening relationship bonds. We are dedicated to promoting the learning and practice of EFT and we encourage therapist certification in EFT and lifelong learning. We promote collegiality among EFT therapists.
