Catherine Hacker, PhD, Psychologist in Nashville, TN


Creating the capacity for true healthy attachment leads to building healthy, fulfilling, and lasting relationships. Often, couples misfire in their communication styles and don’t understand the needs of each other, or even themselves as individuals.
Safe, honoring, and loving communication is a key building block in stable and happy partnerships. I am here to help facilitate the shifting of patterns that feel stuck, or communication that has come to a painful impasse, so that there is renewed movement and enhanced capacity for deepening your attachment to one another.
What I can do to help heal your relationship is to use my skills and experience to work with you and your partner to safely find the causes of relational problems and navigate to a healthier place for both of you. Most issues can be resolved if there are two willing parties.
I offer Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples as well as other informed therapies that have been shown to facilitate healing and closeness with couples.
Treatment Options for Couples:
  • Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples - helps find the source of conflict or miscommunication underlying emotional and communication difficulties, and teaches couples to relate to one another effectively beyond the therapy office, taking with them effective relationship skills.
  • Many other options are available for helping couples address needs, whether they are related to emotional or sexual intimacy; communication styles, or going through difficult transitions. marriage & couples counselor
