The Atlanta Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy was founded by ICEEFT Certified Trainer Michael Barnett, ED.S., LPC. We envision transforming the world one relationship at a time by helping people experience the power and promise of love as a universal force for deep healing within their everyday lives. Our dedicated leadership team and member volunteers work hard in support of this mission by offering training opportunities in Emotionally Focused Therapy; facilitating communication and connection among EFT trained clinicians; encouraging and supporting adherent and effective use of the EFT model; and promoting awareness of this valuable approach for creating and sustaining secure relationships among both the general public and the therapeutic community.
