A Collaboration of Independent Clinicians 

Resa Eckhart, LMFT 

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 

 

Couples Therapy | Individual Psychotherapy

 

Resa earned her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Iowa State University and her Master's Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University. She has worked in both collegiate and private practice settings. 

In graduate school, Resa specialized in Marriage and Family Therapy, which focuses on how relationships influence one’s ability to function individually and vice versa. Resa does individual, premarital, marital and family therapy and has experience working with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma/PTSD, life cycle issues, transition issues, personality patterns and disorders, and relational distress. With individuals, she uses the clinical approach(es) that is(are) most appropriate given the presenting concern. Resa believes that addressing a client’s emotional experience is vital in the therapeutic process. She also believes the therapeutic relationship is a key factor in the success of therapy, so she strives to connect with each client with whom she works. 

Resa uses Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples, an empirically proven approach that helps couples change their interactional pattern from one of anger and distance to one of security and closeness. She has advanced training in this model. 

Resa is a Christian and learned in graduate school how to integrate a client’s faith into the therapeutic process.  She is willing to do this with the client’s consent, and will respect any client’s preference to exclude this from the therapy process.

Resa is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Clinical Fellow in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
