Creating Healthy Connections, within and with those that matter most.

Welcome to Creating Healthy Connections (CHC), the place to find help and healing for your most important and treasured relationships!

Remember when you just clicked?  It was like you got each other.  Sadly, this isn’t the case anymore and you are left with sleepless nights, difficulty concentrating, and not knowing what to do next. Worse yet, this feeling of numbness can shut you down and cause you to merely exist or give up. Let’s face it, when we are lonely, not feeling heard, or feeling like a failure, many times we feel depressed, have anxiety, and even PTSD along with adjustment issues.  All of this not only affects us, but our kids as well. This is how important those closest to us are.

Here’s the good news . . .

Carol Corcoran, LCMFT, LMFT  is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist with almost 30 years of experience working with relationships and attachment.  Carol safely and supportively guides couples towards reconnection by bridging the gap of loneliness and disconnection.

What Couples Say When They’re in Distress

“What happened and how did we get so far off track?!”


“I feel as though I am just going through the motions of a relationship without any real intimate connection.”


“It is as though we are constantly having the same arguments that go nowhere but in circles.”


“I feel more alone in the relationship than when I am physically alone. I love my partner, but I am not in love anymore and haven’t felt that sense of connection for a long time.”


“I don’t know what to do. Can we ever get the feelings back we once had?”

These concerns and many others can be helped and healed at CHC with EFT where therapy can lead to the following:

  • improved communication, connection and closeness
  • feeling supported and understood by their partners
  • finally being able to connect deeply with each other, maybe even for the first time.
  • understanding the types of cyclical, intense, heated, fights they get into and learning how to stop them, thereby allowing them to enjoy their relationship and begin to get closer

Carol Corcoran, LCMFT, LMFT, has trained under Dr. Susan Johnson, the Director of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Ottawa Couple and Family Institute Inc. for her initial externship. Watch Sue Johnson’s EFT presentation here at HoldMeTight to learn more.
