Certified Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Therapists 

Our team obtained certification and/or advanced training in EFT. This is part of us specializing in couples therapy and marriage counseling. Dr. Greg Cheney leads our team as an ICEEFT certified EFT trainer, supervisor, and therapist. Greg is one of a small, select group of ICEEFT Certified EFT Trainers worldwide. His expertise focuses on providing an environment at Valiant Couples Therapy where couples can experience the long-term positive change EFT is known for. EFT is known for moving couples from distress to recovery in 70 – 75% of cases, while generating improvement in 90%. The academic research on EFT spans over 30 years. The American Psychological Association (APA) describes EFT as the “gold standard” in couples therapy.  EFT also treats those suffering from disorders such as depression, post-traumatic stress, chronic illness, and more.

Specialists in Online Therapy 

Finding a true specialist in couples therapy and marriage counseling that is within driving distance is difficult, if not impossible. This led us to specialize in online therapy as well. This included obtaining advanced training in online therapy. One such credential is the Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider credential. Since 2018, Valiant Couples Therapy & Marriage Counseling specialized in online therapy. This was well before the pandemic forced everyone online. We continue to be a resource for couples looking for a true specialist when one is hard to find nearby. Online therapy provides couples access to highly qualified couples therapists and marriage counselors. No need to stress about the barriers to getting the help you need and deserve. Don't worry about finding an office within driving distance. No need to drive through busy traffic, or try to work driving times into a busy schedule.
