Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Dr. Silvina Irwin is certified by ICEFFT as a Trainer in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT), and offers the entire series of trainings required for therapist certification in EFT. Dr. Irwin was trained and mentored by Dr. Sue Johnson, founder and developer of EFT for couples. She offers trainings throughout the year in the LA area, and in other select US and international locations.


Silvina’s endless encouragement and support were vital to me...I am now more able to be accessible, responsive and engaged with my clients, even in the toughest moments of therapy.
