Afua Forson, MD MFT Associate

Afua Forson specializes in Marriage and Family Therapy. She has been schooled in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) (Sue Johnson), and has obtained her limited permit to practice. She has a background in medicine, which has allowed her to serve as an effective consultant to the recently given Cannabis Webinar. Her training in medicine allows her to understand the difficulties that chronic medical issues can cause in relationships.
One of her immediate goals for the organization is to have BPTI apply to be a continuing education provider to the LMFTs in New York State. She believes the BPTI trainings about substance use have been helpful for her focus on relationships, since substance use disorders affect one in five families.

Her enthusiasm about couples’ work is contagious. We’re happy to have her with us.
