A Community Network for EFT Couple Therapists
in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area

The Northern California Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy (NCCEFT) has a mission to:


  • Fill the community’s need for competent EFT therapists
  • Promote the learning and practice of EFT
  • Encourage certification in EFT
  • Enhance the satisfaction of therapists practicing EFT

Donations help NCCEFT to continue providing the breadth of service that it does. To make a tax-deductible charitable contribution to help support NCCEFT’s mission, please visit the Donations Page.

We are thrilled to announce the recipients of the NCCEFT 2016 Spring Scholarship to promote the continued development of professionals who service underrepresented people.  The NCCEFT established this scholarship program to award funds for EFT trainings to candidates that either identify as members of underserved populations or work as a mental health professional that serves underserved populations.

Please join us in congratulating Albert Wong who will be attending EFT Core Skills training and Allegra Lucas who will be attending EFT Externship training!

They are both already great assets to the communities they serve and we and are proud to have them as EFT clinicians.

Please stay tuned for the next scholarship application in Fall 2016!
