Benefits of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Supervision

​We’ll help through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances. Our approach to EFT supervision comes from a strengths-based approach: believing that you can provide EFT effectively while still having your own personality and style.

EFT Group Supervision

Participants take turns showing video tape of their work. Each time you show video tape of your session in group supervision will count as one (1) hour of group supervision toward ICEEFT certification. We will meet 2x per month, for 2 hours each meeting.

EFT Supervision Options
Individual EFT Supervision

Individual EFT supervision provides one-on-one support around your most difficult cases and learning edges to help you work effectively with your clients. Dyadic supervision is possible and can be counted as individual supervision for ICEEFT.

Individual Supervision:

We can meet weekly, bi-weekly, or as needed for 50-minute sessions. I require a minimum of 2 supervision sessions per month to keep a regular time reserved on my schedule for you. I also require a minimum of 8 sessions of viewing your work, along with approval of your submission tapes, in order to write a supervisor letter of recommendation.

A Note on Becoming Certified:

Getting you certified is a primary goal of our work together. At the same time, being ready to submit for certification varies on many factors including how many couples you are working with on a regular basis, their level of distress and commitment to the relationship, and having multiple couples who are willing to video tape in stage 2. Because of this, the length of time it takes to be ready to submit for certification varies and is not necessarily related to skill level in EFT. Focusing on enjoying the journey to certification can help you maintain motivation in the process.

Supervision Testimonials

Worked with Liz for EFT consultation as well as general marriage/family consultation support for my work with couples. Have benefitted greatly from her extensive EFT knowledge base as well as her wealth of resources, tools, and community support services.
Ida Damkilde, LCSW
Individual EFT Supervsion
Liz was my clinical supervisor at the VA while I completed my fellowship program, and I can't convey how incredibly skilled she is at helping any student/client learn new skills and concepts through the process of active experience. She doesn't talk at you like some teacher-types do. She creates the space for you to discover new things and challenges you to go deeper in a gentle and supportive way. She is completely unique and talented in her style of connecting with someone and supporting them towards change in a truly collaborative and authentic way. I'd highly recommend working with her either for therapy or for clinical consultation and collaboration. I've yet to find another therapist who matches her skill.
Savannah Hipes, LCSW
Postgraduate Social Work Fellow
I joined Liz's first supervision group, and I wouldn't have guessed that it was her first! Liz provided such helpful feedback on our videos, including some nuggets on process and wording that I know I will carry with me. She will offer a compassionate and knowledgeable hand to anyone going through their EFT journey!

Just have to say this was one of the BEST ethics trainings I have ever attended and I am so happy you are offering it again!
Emma Smith, LPC
Ethics CE Training Participant
Thank you so much! That was a masterful presentation of so many aspects of what great supervision can be. What I saw you doing and what I learned from that is a true highlight from this entire Core Skills program.
