Welcome to the website devoted exclusively to Creating Healthy Connections, within and with those that matter most

Hello and welcome to Creating Healthy Connections LLC. My name is Carol H. Corcoran, LCMFT, LMFT, and I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist, licensed in both Maryland and California with 20 plus years of training and experience. Should you chose to work with me, I will assist you and those you love, turn to each other, by creating safe, healthy, loving, connections within, and with those closest to you.

While I realize my site looks a bit sunny and hopeful, it is designed to look that way because I want to impart hope for distressed relationships. We all need hope, and this site is created to better help you understand what is involved in order for couple therapy to be truly effective. It is also designed to help you better choose a well trained therapist that is supportive and knowledgeable, especially when it relates to relationships that are most important to you. The following are several areas I specialize in.

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.
