Welcome to the Pittsburgh Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy

The Pittsburgh Community for EFT is a network of psychotherapists located across the greater Pittsburgh area in private practices and in larger agencies who all share an interest in practicing Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). It was founded by Karin Arnds, Dipl. Psych, LMFT as a way to build community, share struggles and triumphs in our work with couples, help each other learn and grow as therapists, and encourage new generations of couples therapists to utilize Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. 

Starting as just a concept in her office with one or two members in 2015, the Community has grown in numbers and interest month to month. It is run by a board made up of therapists who volunteer our time to further the mission of building the EFT community, providing trainings in EFT, and increasing the number of therapists who offer EFT to couples in the greater Pittsburgh area.

Our Mission Statement

  • Connect and build a supportive community for therapists who are interested in working in the EFT model
  • Provide quality learning resources, trainings, and certification opportunities for therapists in our region
  • To build a referral and provider network for the larger Pittsburgh area to find competent EFT trained therapists
  • Facilitate the promotion of secure and resilient relationships
