Couples Therapy: Emotionally Focused Therapy: EFT

"To be human is to need others, and this is no flaw or weakness" Dr Sue Johnson<< New text box >>

 I am a certified (EFT) Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor as approved by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.  I also teach EFT to other therapists through the San Francisco Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy (SFCEFT)


I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, which is an evidence-based therapy with research studies showing that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements in an average of 20 sessions.


Couples report that EFT couples therapy with me enhances connection, reduces conflict, improves intimacy, and moves them into a place of more comfort and joy. I work with all couples and welcome LGBTQ couples.

 I have led many workshops for couples on topics such as Enhancing Intimacy in Relationships: Infertility and its Effects on Couples, When Couple's Choose to Live Without Children, Babyproofing Your Relationship, and Substance Abuse and Marital Distress.

 EFT is the most researched and  effective approach for distressed couples.
