Creating Healthy Connections within and with those that matter most

Carol H. Corcoran, Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist, has been passionate about helping couples and families become deeply connected for over 20 years, and she wants to help you. 

If you have landed on this website, it’s because you are in search of help for your important relationship, a relationship you may be slowly giving up on.  Your relationship deserves the best help possible and that hope comes in the form of Emotionally Focused Therapy, one of the most profound forms of relationship therapy on the planet.

Couples struggle with a variety of issues, everything from communication blocks to intimacy problems, infidelity, parenting challenges and more.  Knowing where to turn for help can be a daunting task.  Most couples don’t seek help until six years into the relationship because it can be so challenging.  Investing in your relationship with Carol Corcoran, LCMFT, LMFT and Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist will pay dividends for years to come.  On this journey together,  you will learn more about yourself,  your partner and your relationship, which will help you stay connected for years to come.  Helping couples is driving passion, as Carol shares:  ‘There is such a sense of fulfillment when I see couples reconnect and create a heart bond that runs deep and wide and can sustain the partners for years to come.” 

Emotionally Focused Therapy has been found to be one of the most effective couple and family therapies on the planet.  It has been in existence for over 25 years and has provided  internationally all over the world.  How does EFT work?  The process involves having a skilled, trained and certified EFT therapist, with a warm, supportive and compassionate space in order for you and yours to feel safe and secure with the therapeutic process. Without the safety, the therapy may be stalled or ineffective. During this process, we will explore your respective emotions, the behaviors fueled by those emotions, and the perceptions you have about each other, in order to better understand your negative interactive cycles. Once there is safety from the negative cycles, we can work to deepen your connection and healing old wounds that may be still be hurting, in a safe, compassionate, collaborative way.

I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist specializing in working with couples in distress. There is an entire section of this website devoted to ‘EFT’
What is EFT and why is being a Certified EFT Therapist so important? EFT, when provided in a safe, compassionate and supportive way, is a form of therapy that is specifically focused on helping partners and their loved ones create deep levels of love and attachment, which is unlike any other form of couple therapy I have utilized in the past. I should know, I was trained in many other forms of therapy and found Emotionally Focused Therapy to be far more effective in creating positive change and connection for partners struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD and adjustment issues, to name a few. EFT also has substantial research to back it up. It is for these reasons I work exclusively with this well researched and efficacious, attachment, based therapy known as Emotionally Focused Therapy rather than applying an ‘eclectic’ approach.
Please be aware, even if the therapist is EFT trained, it is necessary for the therapist to provide a warm, supportive and compassionate space in order for you and yours to feel safe and secure in the therapeutic process. Without the safety, the therapy may be stalled or ineffective. During this process, we will explore your respective emotions, the behaviors fueled by those emotions, and the perceptions you have about each other, in order to better understand your negative interactive cycles. Once there is safety from the negative cycles, we can work to deepen your connection further by healing old wounds that may be still be hurting, in a safe, compassionate, collaborative way.
