Who I am

I am Angela Nelms-Griffin, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am passionate about helping individuals and couples have rewarding relationships with the people who matter the most. My therapy approach in working with clients is attachment theory. Attachment theory states that we thrive when we have secure attachment with significant others.  I utilize Dr. Sue Johnson’s model, Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)  to work with couples who have ongoing conflict that they can’t seem to resolve, have experienced an attachment injury, (such as an affair, the person not being there at a vulnerable time), difficulty expressing and meeting attachment needs. I also utilize EFT to work with individuals who may be dealing with depression and anxiety that seem to be related to relationship stemming from insecure attachment with significant others. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), an effective therapy to help individuals resolve past traumatic experiences that tend to undermine secure attachment with others and within the self.
