We Are Model-Loyal
Following the Empathi Method
We encourage therapists with a range of expertise to apply, but our employees must be committed to the Empathi method, a proprietary set of practices and exercises we’ve developed over decades of relationship healing work.
Our counselors use Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) to guide clients to alleviating the pain of their relationship issues through understanding their significant attachment bonds to each other and the ways their relationship cycles form around that significance.
A sizable body of research has supported the theory EFT helps couples create lasting relationship satisfaction and attachment change for those experiencing a range of life difficulties and co-morbidities.
