It's Time for Growth

You love being a couples therapist and you know that Emotionally Focused Therapy can transform a couple from distressed and miserable to in- love and happy.  However, there are sessions that are so disheartening, you just want to throw in the towel.  These painful moments, where you are filled with self-doubt and disillusionment, are points on a trajectory and not the undisputed final chapter in a tragic story.  Your couples can overcome whatever historical and present day challenges they are facing and you can help guide them.  We will show you how.

What if you could feel confident in EFT and change lives.

You've completed every EFT Training and devoured every resource.  You felt like you were understanding the EFT map, connecting the dots between theory and practice, and you were feeling refreshed in your practice.

Then… Your next new couple had signs of trauma. De-escalation never seemed to stabilize. One might struggle with alcohol dependency. The other feels ambivalent about the relationship. Your clarity and enthusiasm started to wane. Then, your own emotion came alive and you didn’t know what to do with it. You reacted badly, which made you feel like a fraud. How can I help my couples if I am still emotionally reactive? Your professional fatigue and isolation crept back and, in your quiet moments, you found yourself wondering if you really have what it takes to be an EFT therapist.

Then you remember something ... the only thing that has ever been healing in your whole entire life was feeling VULNERABLE and LOVED in the exact same moment.

Kathryn and Jennifer will discuss their struggles and their triumphs so you will feel less alone in your own. Held the first Wednesday of every month at 9am PT/12pm ET. If you can't make the live webinar you will find the recording, transcript and session summary in the member program for review.

Committment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

We work toward being culturally humble, acknowledging mistakes, and growing our capacity to center those in the margins. Trauma due to racism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny are wholly relevant to our field and we unequivocally stand behind Black Lives Matter. We are doing our own anti-racist work, working with a diversity consultant, and committing ourselves to continually be more inclusive of a wide variety of people. We also offer a Diversity Scholarship, awarded to underrepresented minorities in the field of psychotherapy.

"Magic! I love Kathryn's words, the way she says things that make so much sense, and I love how Jennifer repeats and clarifies, making it all even more likely that it will settle into my brain (and often my heart), in a place where I can retrieve it." ~ Karen Michelson LPC

Helping you grow your capacity to do EFT

EFT Cafe

"Seeing 'the master' at work, having her input about her own work with explanations - as well as suggestions for improvement. Exploring the questions posed by Jen to get at the nuance. The discussion of questions helped me understand how EFT can be most effectively, and flexibly, applied in real time. Yes. It brings so much to life. It helps to bring things into accord with the theory - and with sometimes more rigidly held ideas (on my part) of how EFT should be done." ~ Pat Layman, PhD

EFT Cafe

"I love the questions that were asked by Jen during the filming of the couple because they often reflected my own questions. I think this will give other therapists more confidence knowing that not everybody feels comfortable with EFT for quite a while! And the steps start coming together and they make sense after watching the café.~ Deb SchnackLMFT

EFT Cafe

""IT FINALLY SUNK IN! I've stopped imagining that if my couples were only with a more experienced EFT therapist, they would surely have gotten to their bonding event by now! Watching Kathryn so gently, calmly and relentlessly wade in and out of the pool gave me more courage to do this with my couples. I found I can lean in to their discomfort with them, be more empathic than I knew was possible, stay in the fear or hurt or pain and in those spaces, just by being there with them, something magical has started to happen in my sessions." ~ Victoria Holroyd, LPC, LMHC, PhD
