Recently, Marilyn expanded her knowledge base by completing an Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples. The basis of Emotionally Focused Therapy or EFT is that the most important characteristic of a healthy relationship is a secure emotional bond. According to Susan Johnson, Ed.D, the co-founder of EFT, most human beings crave secure emotional bonds Many times, a couple can get into a pattern or “dance” that does not work for them. By learning that it is the pattern and not the individual who has created the dysfunctions in the relationship, the couple can recognize it and learn to “step” out and develop new behaviors and intimacy.

Marilyn has also been trained in Couple Communication Training. . Research has shown that this couple communication course has helped more that 600,000 couples improve their communication skills and their relationships.
