Carol Corcoran, LCMFT, LMFT began working with couples, families, children and individuals fifteen years ago, by providing psychotherapy at seven, diverse, non-profit agencies prior to starting Creating Healthy Connections in 2007. She graduated with a degree in Marriage and Family Psychology, which combined a Family Systems Approach with CBT and attachment theory. After grad school, Carol continued to study and train in many other forms of therapy and settled on an ‘eclectic’ approach to treatment.
In her continued search of a more effective forms of therapy, Carol began studying Emotionally Focused Therapy in 2002 by attending her first training with Dr. Susan Johnson, the primary developer of EFT for couples. She continues ongoing frequent training in EFT learning from many different EFT trainers.
At the same time she pursued her training in EFT, Carol also became a Certified EMDR Therapist in 2005, one of the few in Anne Arundel County. She further deepened the EMDR trauma work with a two-year intensive training by meeting weekly with an expert in Trauma and Ego State therapy. This helped her better understand early childhood trauma and it was there she began focusing more heavily on the impact of attachment.
