Practice Description

Carol Corcoran, Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist, is licensed in the states of Maryland and California and specializes in working exclusively with couples, whether just beginning a relationship, engaged, newly married or together for many years. Carol also provides limited family therapy. As a couples and marriage therapist for almost 20 years, Carol has also been married for over 30 years and can personally attest to the effectiveness of Emotionally Focused Therapy in her own marriage.

Carol's area of expertise is Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy where as a Certified EFT therapist, she provides a safe compassionate setting focused on improving the quality of relationships and creating a deeper more lasting connection for couples struggling with relationship challenges. This involves helping the couple understand their negative interactional cycles and how this cycle highjacks their relationship which keeps them stuck in an unending loop of disconnection. Once the cycle is better understood the couple is assisted to help deepen their connection in order to safely work through wounds that have blocked their ability feel love and compassion.

Theraputic treatment is also focused on helping couples and partners better understand their patterns of communication, how their attachment styles affect their relationship and how this can be shifted to create a more secure attachment.

Areas of focus include: Communication problems, anxiety struggles, depression, infidelity/affair issues, anger (not including domestic violence issues), self-esteem, life transitions, parenting struggles, blended family concerns, grief and loss, trauma in the relationship and prior. Other areas of knowledge involve assisting couples with life challenges and transitions, adjustments of new situations. Carol helps the partners better understanding their attachment longings and how accessing those longings can help move them into healthier patterns of connection. Couples and family members are able to feel safe and supported which allowes for the opportunity to work through the difficulties and challenges that life presents.

Therapeutic approaches include:

EFCT/EFT - Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy for couples who yearn for and achieve a more deeply connected way to attach and feel safe with significant others. See
