Steven Kessler is a licensed Marriage & Family therapist who developed deep expertise in the study of personality patterns and emotional freedom techniques (EFT).

In this episode, we explore his work with the 5 Personality Patterns – they’re the patterns we developed we all go to now when we’re feeling ‘unsafe’ as a way to feel secure. Understanding these patterns can help us have better relationships and free ourselves from the expectations we put on ourselves.
