The EFT Resource Center seeks to make more fulfilling relationships possible for everyone. Our team of experienced therapists shares the value of strong, secure relationships as a necessary ingredient to thriving. We offer therapy services and workshops for individuals, couples, families and teens based on the highly effective approach of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

We also bring the transformative power and efficacy of EFT to mental health practitioners all around the world through professional training, supervision, and support. The EFT Resource Center cultivates an atmosphere of growth, creativity, curiosity, and life-long learning with all of our clients and colleagues.




The EFT Resource Center was established in 2011 by Drs. Lisa Blum and Silvina Irwin, both licensed clinical psychologists with 30 years of combined experience working with individuals, families, and couples. They began their training in EFT because it was, and remains, one of the most empirically supported couples' therapy models. While training with Dr. Sue Johnson, EFT founder and innovator, they discovered the power of EFT to fundamentally change the nature of distressed couples' relationships and create secure connections. Inspired by the power of EFT, they pursued advanced training and supervision in EFT, and opened the EFT Resource Center to bring EFT therapy to the local community and EFT training to professionals worldwide.
