Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT, an experiential therapy based on creating moments of connection between partners, has been shown to be effective in helping three out of four couples recover from significant distress.


Emotionally Focused Therapy can be used to help families improve the parent-adult child relationships. When the family members live in different states, I use technology to include them in the sessions.

Penina is a remarkable and gifted professional, and she is a delight to collaborate with. It is a pleasure to have her on our team as a talented and seasoned Building A Lasting Connection™ (BLC) Facilitator and Trainer. She has an amazing ability to educate and inspire couples in her workshops as they learn the skills necessary for greater joy in their marriage.

Penina was an excellent trainer for the Building a Lasting Connection course. She was able to explain and model the course material extremely well and had patience for the many questions asked. She has also offered to be available for any future support needed as well. The team work of Dr. Gilmore, Dr. Jorgenson and Penina Flug made the course interesting and a wonderful and highly educational experience. I fully recommend the course for other therapists and community workers.
