Charisse Ferrer, MEdLPC-S

I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist awarded by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy, which is considered the gold standard in scientific research and treatment for couples and relationship therapy.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of  Texas. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Houston and a Bachelor’s degree with a double major in Psychology and Sociology from Baylor University.

I want to help you connect with your truest self, even the parts of you that are difficult to embrace. When that happens, you can genuinely make meaningful relationships with those around you and experience the world in more courageous ways. I help my clients heal and recover through Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). The goal of EFT is not just to manage your daily stressors, but to create a more secure attachment bond using the power of emotion.

I like to use all the parts of your stories – the hurt, the anger, the joy – to help you gain an understanding of yourself and your partnerships. I believe that you are the expert in knowing your unique experiences, and I trust you have very good reasons for doing the things you do. I will assist you in finding aspects of your stories that you usually don’t pay attention to (or maybe don’t want to pay attention to).
When you come in for a session, I will guide you on how to resolve the pain and hurt by getting out of your negative cycles of interaction. Then, we will work together to replace this cycle with corrective bonding moments that address your needs, fears, and longings to create a more secure connection.


I specialize in couples who:

  • Get so caught up in reactive behaviors that they can’t seem to feel close
  • Feel like they “don’t know” each other anymore
  • Have trouble recovering from an event of betrayal


I believe that in the process of repairing things that have been broken, you can create something stronger, more beautiful, and more resilient.

I provide online counseling to couples and individuals all over Texas.
