Curious about the key differences between Sue Johnson’s EFFT and other forms of EFFT?  

  • Our approach focuses on transforming patterns and blocks related to emotional engagement.
  • Our approach is rooted in attachment processes, including caregiving and meeting attachment-related needs.
  • Our approach focuses on working through relational blocks with parents and children in session together.

You need to have completed the EFT Externship and preferably (but not mandatory) have attended a training in EFFT. There is also an initial commitment of six-months, after which you may cancel at anytime with 30-days notice. 


As mentioned above, this group requires a six-month commitment. We offer two payment options for your convenience: (1) we can set up monthly payments of $75 for a six-month period; OR, (2) we can collect a one-time payment of $420 which includes six consecutive groups (this options lowers the cost to $70 per group for each of the six group), and after the first six months you will be billed automatically at the rate of $75 per month. 

Billing occurs once every 4 weeks on a Saturday. All billing occurs at the beginning of the month or last week of the prior month for any given group. Thus, you are paying for the groups before they happen. One you enroll, you will be automatically billed monthly until you inform Jen Siladi that you want to terminate your EFFT group attendance. Note: all cancellations require 30 days notice; see more details below.

Payment method: Credit or Debit cards only. We need a card number on file in order to enroll you in auto-bill. Because of the constant changing supervision needs of each clinician, we will automatically bill you and invite you to groups until you let us know that you no longer want to attend these groups.


This group requires a six-month commitment. After the initial six months, you can cancel, pause, or skip groups without being charged if you let us know 30 days in advance
