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

The NCCEFT along with TRI EFT and SFCEFT have established a scholarship program to bring EFT to underserved populations in northern California.  This fall, five scholarships will be awarded including 3 full scholarships to attend EFT Externship and 2 full scholarships to attend Core Skills.  To qualify, candidates will either identify as members of underserved populations or work as a mental health professional that serves underserved populations.  Both pre-licensed and licensed therapists may apply.  Membership in NCCEFT is not required to qualify for the scholarships.  Please view the application for more information and to submit:  https://goo.gl/forms/7PXZKYZ2qx3dRULS2

Sam JinichSL2_4642NCCEFT is proud to announce that our own Sam Jinich, PhD, NCCEFT co-founder and certified EFT therapist and supervisor has been certified by Sue Johnson and the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy, as an EFT trainer. Sam has already opened our new San Francisco Center for EFT (SFCEFT) and is offering EFT trainings to our local community. In addition, Sam is offering EFT trainings in Spanish, both in the US and in Spanish speaking countries. As a native of Mexico, bi-cultural and bi-lingual, he is uniquely qualified to bring EFT to our neighbors. We are thrilled for Sam and for our vibrant and growing San Francisco Bay Area EFT community.
