Ellen Splaver, MSW, LCSW, LCADC, Certified EFT Therapist
I have been practicing in the field of social work since 1994. I am a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor. My extensive experience in the area of addictions includes the treatment of drugs, alcohol, sex and gambling addictions. As a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist (EFT), I specialize in treating couples in distress. EFT is based on attachment theory and focuses on creating safe and secure relationships. I am one of only nine certified EFT therapists in the state of New Jersey, and the only certified EFT therapist in Southern Jersey. I am extremely sensitive to the special needs of individuals and although my primary treatment approach is based in EFT, intervention is adjusted to the needs of each person. Other treatment methods include cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. In addition to having operated my own private practice since 2004, my work experience also includes employment at Atlanticare Behavioral Health and the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug dependence of New Jersey.
