here for you 1-1 consultation

In any given moment, we have two options:  to step forward into growth or to step back into safety. - Abraham Maslow

What is it?

In my experience as an Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) clinician, I have repeatedly found myself in a place of feeling stuck and needing some help.  This is a really tough model of therapy, and whether you're using EFT with individuals, couples and/or families, you might find yourself feeling confused, overwhelmed, lost, or maybe even bored.  And you want something more.


Here For You 1-1 Consultation offers a weekly opportunity for you and I to meet together, for any EFT-related needs.  Maybe you and I will discuss one of your particular cases, or watch a video clip of your work, or talk about where you feel stuck, or refresh our memories about a step or stage of the EFT process.


Whatever needs you have, this space is here for you.
