A Note From Corinne:

Hi all, and welcome to The Center of Connected Living-Fl. I help individuals, couples, and families work through relationship stress and unhappiness so you can find relief and take the next best step forward. I engage with my clients, offering insights and feedback throughout each session, and am a huge fan of setting intentions for action between sessions. The clients who are most successful in therapy spend time reflecting between sessions, making notes, and trying new behaviors to create change.

After nearly 15 years of being a therapist, my personal philosophy is that therapy is not about “fixing you,” or anyone else for that matter. Sometimes struggles can be gifts in disguise, and as your therapist, I intend to work towards that as an end goal.

Instead of focusing on only what’s ‘wrong’, and ‘why’ it’s wrong, I prefer to understand your symptoms in the context of your personal life and the patterns and cycles you are a part of. And, curiously enough, when you lean in toward your symptoms rather than fear or avoid them, your struggles become an excellent opportunity to empower you. This has proven to be one of the greatest benefits of being a therapist here in Fort Lauderdale, the self-discovery my clients find through therapy.

Through each virtual counseling session, you can learn to:

  • Attain a better understanding of yourself, your goals, and your values

  • Develop skills for improving your relationships

  • Find resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy

  • Learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety

  • Manage anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures

  • Improve communication and listening skills

  • Change old behavior patterns and develop new ones

  • Discover new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage

  • Improve your self-esteem and boost your self-confidence

Solution Oriented & Emotionally Focused

Many clients come to therapy not realizing that it's the patterns, habits, and cycles that keep us in distressing conversations and feelings with those we love. We spend time exploring and mapping your unique relational cycle or patterned ways of responding to triggers. This also supports our belief that 'the person isn't the problem, the problem is the problem'. In other words, working as a team to address problems tends to be much more effective than working through them alone. Even in individual therapy, changing your approach or making a small change can change the entire pattern!
