Emotionally Focused Therapist (EFT) in Tigard, Oregon
I have specialized education in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is one of the most recognized therapies. Some studies show it is outperforming more traditional therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)'s premise is that secure relationships serve as the catalyst to change and well-being. I as the therapist will serve as a guide to lead you from insecure or avoidant attachment towards secure attachment. Clients often say they feel they have found their true self or "come home" when experiencing EFT. Learn more about (EFT) here.
