What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?

The Relationship House offers high-quality therapy services through Emotionally Focused Therapy in Marietta, GA. Grounded in an attachment-based and trauma-informed approach, we create a safe and secure environment for couples, individuals, and families to work through and resolve personal and relational issues.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, is a powerful approach to helping distressed couples, families, and individuals. It is a humanistic and experiential psychotherapy that integrates the science of attachment into the treatment of emotional, mental, and relational health. Attachment science has expanded our understanding of the nature of love relationships and family bonds, viewing human beings as innately relational and wired for intimate bonding with others.

The EFT model acknowledges our biological predisposition to create and maintain strong emotional ties with our partners and loved ones. It focuses on key emotions that shape individual experience and intimate bonds. Feeling secure in our most important relationships enables us to thrive and cope with life's challenges. We all seek positive answers to questions like "Are you there for me?", "Can I count on you?", and "Do I matter to you?"—desiring assurance that our loved ones are accessible, responsive, and engaged with us.

EFT has demonstrated success in treating relationship problems, anxiety, depression, stress, attachment, and trauma. Recognized by the American Psychological Association (APA) as meeting the gold standard for the most effective evidenced-based therapy approach for couples, EFT has also been successfully adapted to treat individuals and families. At The Relationship House, we offer Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), Couples Therapy (EFCT), and Family Therapy (EFFT), as well as Emotionally Focused-informed Sex Therapy.
