Arizona’s EFT Specialists

The Arizona Relationship Institute provides Emotionally Focused Therapy and integrated treatment to individuals, couples and families seeking to create, repair, or strengthen their relationships.

ARI therapists specialize in helping people overcome isolation and threats to their relationships, and to repair breaks in their emotional, sexual and spiritual connections with one another.  EFT is integrated with other complimentary modalities based on client’s interests and needs (yoga, acupuncture, therapeutic massage, chiropractic care, EMDR, EMDR/EFT hybrid)

EFT Intimacy Experts:   Couple, Family, Sex Therapy

Whether you are struggling with Infidelity, infertility, religious differences, faith crises, sexual issues, or LGBT issues, you don’t have to lose your connections to your loved ones. You don’t have to agree in order to create, repair or strengthen your connections.

Respecting All Faiths, Cultures, & Sexual Orientations

ARI therapists respect and honor all people’s faiths, spiritual beliefs, cultural traditions, and sexual orientations.  We understand these beliefs, traditions, and experiences shape the way people make meaning of their lives and relationships.  These are often the most intimate aspects of people’s lives:  the aspects to which they turn for strength and resilience.  When couples and families are unable to share these most intimate beliefs and experiences, it can be incredibly difficult to navigate the sadness, hurt, fear and shame that can arise.  It can be especially difficult to do so in a way that helps maintain, repair, or strengthen their relationships.

Perfect Love Casteth Out All Fear

We help people navigate their differences in ways that respect and honor each other’s beleifs, even when their beliefs are in conflict with each other.

Our goal is not necessarily to resolve the differences, but to assist people in being authentically themselves in supportive connection with one another.  It is vital to help people identify and honor the things that are most important to themselves and each other, and help them build upon what they share, rather than focusing on trying to change each other.

When we are only able to show the parts of ourselves to each other that we believe will be acceptable, we rob ourselves and each other from ever really knowing one another.  It is this fear and shame make intimacy- real love- impossible.  Perfect love casteth out all fear…
