About  Kelly Heard

Do you feel that you can never get your partner to understand?  Does it seem that you are missing each other’s intent all the time? Are you caught in a nasty fight or a silent cease fire on many days? Do you feel misunderstood and unappreciated? Are you lonely in your marriage? Do you wonder why you feel so anxious or depressed on most days? Maybe your faith puts a high value on marriage, and you are confused as to why yours seems so difficult? 

If you feel tangled up in your distress—unable to figure out how you got in and how to get out, I   will help you unravel yourself from the negative patterns that hold your happiness hostage. Safe and loving relationships are the most potent source of healing available to us, and my hope is to help couples experience this in the therapy process.

I know that healthy, life-long marriage is good for individuals, families, communities—hey, the WORLD—that is why I dove headfirst into a career that focuses on helping marriages thrive. I hold a balanced pro-commitment stance regarding your marriage.   I believe that preserving your marriage is a desirable outcome to be pursued during therapy, albeit I am completely aware that some marriages are dangerous to personal well-being.

My understanding of relationships is informed by attachment science, EFT, my faith in a loving God who chose to reveal Himself mysteriously through the marriage relationship of man and woman, as well as my personal experience as a wife since 1983, a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, and friend.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  EFT is used in marriage counseling, marriage therapy, couples counseling, couples therapy, family therapy, premarital counseling and even individual counseling.  EFT  prioritizes the ability to turn toward significant others in times of distress. EFT is based on attachment theory, but most importantly, it is backed up by decades of research.  Do you want your marriage to get better and stay better?  I certainly do! EFT has a proven success rate. 70-75% of couples who complete EFT move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. 

I want to help you improve your marriage for good.  I’m not saying I don’t love you, but when you leave my office after your last session, my hope is that you don’t ever need to come back!
