HeartLink Counseling with Amanda Carver: Helping people love and feel loved
Nothing can be more distressing than when our marriage or partnership has become a constant source of conflict and loneliness rather than the safe haven we anticipated enjoying for a lifetime. We all long to be seen and loved for who we really are, and need to know we can count on others through the ups and downs of life.
As a Certified Emotionally Focused (EFT) Therapist, I assist couples and individuals in navigating difficult moments of conflict or disconnection in relationships. Whether hurting from a betrayal or struggling with communication, I guide couples through new experiences of connection to a place where healing is possible and each partner is seen and felt. In times of difficult change or when processing older wounds, I support individuals in tapping inner wisdom to generate self-compassion, courage, and connection.
My passion is helping people love and feel loved. None of us are broken - sometimes we're just stuck and need a caring guide. I welcome you to contact me with any questions about how I can assist you toward creating a meaningful and love-filled life.
