Sound like a fairytale? With intensive couples therapy with Figs & Teale, it’s ordinary.

Figs & Teale: Wounded Healers
Discover why silicon valley’s geniuses come to this ordinary, messy, wounded couple for relationship help.
We had no business ever making love and relationship work.
Of course not! Deep down, Teale and I are just two rejected, abandoned, fucked-up little kids from broken homes.
No matter how hard we tried, every relationship failed. Making love work was my main focus and I was crap at it!
I remember confessing to my mother on a beach in San Francisco, “I’m sorry. I am never going to make you a grandmother.”
Most people are in a better place than we ever were to rewrite their stories.
How much does couples therapy in San Francisco cost?
Couples counseling in San Francisco ranges on average from $120 to $250 per therapy hour. Some skilled therapists are in higher demand, and so have a higher rate. Skill and training also play a large part in the pricing of marriage therapy in San Francisco. Some therapists cost more, but these tend to be specialized experts in their field who have a high success rate.
At Empathi, we offer a range of pricing. Our experienced, licensed couples counseling professionals provide you with personalized guidance and give you the tools you need to restore vibrancy to your relationship.
The Empathi perspective changes everything.
A secret narrative had taken over and corrupted every one of our relationships, forcing us to recreate the pain of our childhoods… and only with EFT were we able to see it clearly.
It genuinely changed our lives.
So we got really, really good at doing it.
Teale and I are now able to offer you a more accurate, more rewarding narrative of what’s happening than either or both of your individual stories.
And here’s the magic bit: that story will trigger a multi-dimensional empathy that will be a pathway for you, together, through any mess.
Our intensives are the most powerful vessel for relationship transformation.
Even an amazingly compelling perspective isn’t enough on its own.
You need to feel it in your bones.
Our couples therapy is the most effective — even amongst other Emotionally-Focused Therapists — because we are expert experience-makers.
Now, Teale and I are breaking free from the limits of a weekly one-hour session.
Because if you give us 3 or 5 days, we will win.
We will take 15 years of experience just crafting emotionally huge, profoundly transformational experiences, our mastery of EFT, refined instincts, chemistry, and humor, and we will change your life.
"With Empathi, Figs has created a fun and creative way to help people feel more connected in their relationship and to become acquainted with the transformational power of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy."

Answer Your Couples Therapy Questions
Opening up to a stranger about relationship difficulties isn’t easy. Why don’t we go first?
Yes. We at Empathi believe that most couples can make their romantic relationships, friendships, and relationships with themselves better through skillful and compassionate counseling. This belief is founded in direct experience, respected insight, and extensive research.
Our methods tend to work just as well for low and high-conflict couples, across a range of relationship difficulties.
Your Empathi therapist will work with you to build a roadmap that suits your needs, no matter the circumstance. The process is what transforms you and makes the outcome possible.
Our methods tend to work just as well for low and high-conflict couples, across a range of relationship difficulties.
- They just can’t seem to stop arguing
- The relationship’s “spark” is lost
- Growing distance and lack of affection
- Recovering trust after infidelity
- Struggling with addictive behavior
- Conflict over parenting style differences
- Preparing for marriage
- Long distance relationship strain
- Financial hardship and disagreements
- Sexual and emotional intimacy changes
We even offer individual relationship counseling if your partner isn’t open to therapy. (Tip: try getting them to just one therapy session.)
Your future isn’t set in stone. There’s no way of knowing exactly how you and your partner will feel when you close your chapter with Empathi. But our counselors do know healing is possible—they’ve seen it first-hand, time and time again.
In recognizing you’re suffering and seeking out help, you’ve already taken the first step. It’s okay to let in a little hope right about now, it will help you take the next one.
In addition to being licensed counselors, our therapists go through the Emotionally-Focused Therapy certification process and partake in weekly training sessions with Empathi founders and master therapists Figs O’Sullivan and Teale Taxis.

Couples counseling can extend anywhere from one highly-productive session to a years-long relationship, but the Empathi Method is specifically designed to prepare you to function happily without our help as soon as possible.
To experience the benefits of Empathi counseling in your relationship even sooner, start today.
Let’s start with what success isn’t: never fighting or suffering with each other again. Not only is that an impossible goal to strive for, it can lead to unhealthy suppression and denial in the name of maintaining an artificial peace.
Truly successful relationships are built on resilience: an ability to bounce back from hardship and hurt, more connected and more trusting of each other. “The magic is in the repair.“
If you and your partner are suffering in love, Empathi can help you become stronger than ever.
Here's how our intensive couples therapy works.
Your expert counselor is here to guide you back to connection using Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy and the Empathi Method.
The hardest part is just getting started.
Healing starts with accepting you need help, booking a free consult, and showing up as you are. Everything that comes next will be easier as you’re held by an Empathi therapist and a proven process. From now on, you’re not alone in this.
Feel like you’re on the same team again.
Explore your process and discover a unified narrative where neither of you are wrong or right, “the good one,” or “the bad one.” Learn to approach suffering and conflicts as an “us” problem instead of a “them” problem or a “me” problem.
See the hurt and love behind their reactivity.
Strengthen your new narrative by accessing empathy to recognize the root of each other’s reactivity, how much you matter to each other, and what love is. Understand the cycles you get into with the help of your expert Empathi counselor.
Share the hurt and love behind your reactivity.
Get to know, live in, and share your vulnerable feelings. Then, learn to let in the ways that those feelings are understood and accepted by your partner through the power of the Empathi method and Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy.
Feel deeply and securely bonded to one another.
Mend your relationship and your wounds through the understanding that you matter to each other. Learn to grieve, show up for, heal, and accept the most vulnerable parts inside of each other without sacrificing those parts in yourselves.
Rely on your bond to get out of stuck moments.
Having proved your ability to resolve long-standing issues, heated conflicts, and negative cycles, face your future together with a certainty that you will not only survive those moments, but grow stronger and more connected because of them.
The Empathi Discovery Quiz was created as an alternative access point to Empathi’s relationship-healing wisdom, but the truth is, no self-help tools will be as effective or as efficient as the one-on-one guidance of a trained Empathi counselor.
To discover how we use these tools in coaching with one of our therapists, schedule a free consult.
Yes! You can retake the couple’s therapy quiz and it will update your reports with your new answers. When you’re logged in, click Settings, then select Retake Quiz. To get the most out of your reports, when you retake the quiz, take your time and just be as honest as you possibly can.
Empathi can help you no matter what your current relationship status is!
Although this initial launch of the Empathi Quiz speaks to a “couples experience,” you can still participate fully in the self-discovery process. When you take the quiz, have one important past relationship in mind.
To take it a step further and examine your former relationship system, invite your “partner” using a second email that you own, click the link in that invite, and then complete the quiz in the mind frame of your ex. This can be tricky, but just do your best. It’s not the same as getting the details from the real person, but we think it’s still possible to create a framework and use the reports as a tool to examine that past relationship through a more empathetic lens. The two completed quizzes activate the relationship report.
As a single person, you’ll also get a lot of value by listening to Figs’ podcast Come Here To Me, reading his articles, signing up for his online course, joining his membership group, and taking his in-person workshops.
After you take the quiz and are logged in, you can send an invite to your partner from your Dashboard, which you can find under your name in the Empathi header. There you will see Your Relationship Roadmap with tools to help you . Under Discover click Invite Partner. From the Invite page, add your partner’s email and a personal message, and then click Send Invitation.
Your partner will receive an email with a custom URL that links your Empathi accounts once your partner completes the quiz and creates an account.
Click the Sign In button in the header above. On the sign in page, click the Forgot Password? link. Then enter the email address you used when you created your Empathi.com account to receive instructions for resetting your password.
We recommend that you invite your partner to take the quiz.
In couples therapy the most important first task is to help a couple see that their relationship problems are systemic problems, not just one partner’s issues (as is commonly believed).
After your partner takes the Empathi Quiz, we combine your answers to provide you both with your own personalized Relationship System Report. You and your partner can then see your relationship through a new perspective and learn how to feel more connected to each other.
You are in this relationship together. And you can make it better together.
