Emotionally Focused Therapy with Kelly Bourque, LMFT – Episode 104

Emotion is like our north star. Emotion gets us where we want to be. In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Kelly Bourque. Kelly is a founder of Red Therapy Group, a group practice in the Nashville area. She is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and supervisor with over a decade of experience, working with couples in private practice. Together they discuss this theoretical orientation being emotionally focused, understanding protective patterns, attachment systems, and the disowned part of self. And the approach to working with couples to contextually understand their reactivity of emotions. Kelly speaks about her shift to working with couples within the context of intensives, the collaborative process, and a walk-through of the client experience. As an EFT, you learn to trust to follow emotion. And it takes us to those places that have not been processed.
