NYCEFT EFT Access Program

Making Emotionally Focused Therapy available to underserved populations

New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy is dedicated to bringing EFT to any couple or family that needs it.  One of the ways we do it is through our commitment to quality EFT training to those clinicians working with underserved populations in mental health clinics, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations in the Greater New York Area.

Our Mission

To provide low cost, high quality training to clinicians who serve clients who are unable to afford private EFT - with a special interest in marginalized groups who experience discrimination and maybe cautious about engaging in therapy as a process that would hold relevance to them.


1.  Provide introduction to EFT lectures and supervision to agencies interested.

2.  Conduct low-cost EFT Externship and EFT Core Skills Training, as well as continued supervision support to eligible clinicians.
