Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy in Marietta GA
Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) helps treat emotional disorders and childhood trauma in adults. We understand that the survival skills we developed in childhood to cope with family dysfunction and relational insecurity no longer work for us in adulthood, in fact they limit us. In adulthood, we can feel stuck in survival states of fight, flight, freeze, shutdown or collapse. We can also find ourselves in repetitive patterns of avoiding, people pleasing, criticizing, blaming, and demanding. These adaptive patterns intended to help us survive block our growth and give rise to emotional disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
EFIT cultivates emotional fitness within the Self. It helps us to:
approach and fully listen to our inner experience,
improve emotion regulation and self-awareness
refine decision making, and
engage in behavioral responses that promote connection and agency in our lives.
EFIT will help you to create a compassionate and safe relationship within the Self that ultimately promotes connection with the people in your life. Our Marietta Therapists are trained and supervised in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
