Sean and Luana offer supervision to licensed clinicians in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). Sean is an ICEEFT-Certified Supervisor and Luana is a Supervisor Candidate, currently working toward certification with mentors Sam Jinich, Michael Barnett, and Gail Palmer.
Our strengths as supervisors lie in our clear understanding of the steps and stages of the model and a deep investment in building safety and trust in the supervisory relationship. We remember how nervous we felt showing early tape to supervisors. This work is so very challenging and it humbles all of us. To learn EFT, we must own our strengths and our successes, and we must also get curious about where we miss, fail, and make mistakes. For many of us, this brings up anxiety and even shame. We have found our background as certified Mindful Self-Compassion teachers to be particularly helpful in supporting our supervisees in the process of learning EFT. There is something powerful about holding a couple as they turn toward the places that scare them and then learn to hold each other. There is something equally powerful in the supervisory process when we can hold a supervisee as they turn toward the scary places and learn to trust themselves there.
Fee: $170 for 60-minute session (sliding scale available)

“Sean is simply the best – a master EFT therapist, and also just a normal person. He is rock solid in attachment theory, and oh so crafty with interventions. He taught me all his little tricks. Sean’s compassion and support made it so that he built me up while helping me refine my skills.” –Jeff Reznicek-Parrado, Ph.D., Sacramento, CA
