Director and Therapist
Counseling in Reno with Cornelius Sheehan, LCSW
I specialize in attachment-based, emotionally focused therapy for marriage, couples, families and individuals in the Reno area.
The empathy, curiosity, and non-judgemental stance of attachment theory fit my natural style perfectly. I have significant expertise in what I do. However, you the client are the expert in your life circumstance and aims. This is why humility and openness are of utmost importance. Emotionally Focused Therapy, the gold-standard for attachment based therapy, is a perfect fit for me in my work with couples, individuals and families.
From a young age I’ve been naturally psychologically-minded. I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t curious about the interactions between people. This curiosity, a commitment to helping others and a passion for learning are what drive the work I do. I have been fortunate to have some really wonderful training experiences over the years, benefiting from the guidance of expert mentors globally.
I am a licensed clinical social worker, a certified EFT therapist and supervisor, and the founder and Director of Emotional and Relationship Health Associates in Reno. Additionally, I serve as a clinical supervisor for interns in Nevada. Through intensive study, practice and consultation with experts in this therapeutic model, I have established myself as a provider of highest quality, focused, impactful individual, family and marriage counseling in Reno.
I also have experience on the client side of therapy. Consequently, I recognize the profoundly positive impact of therapy, offering psychological ease and flexibility as we navigate life.
Additionally, I find training students and therapists to enhance their clinical skills very rewarding. Finally, contributing to our community through participation in state and local mental health initiatives has become another fulfilling aspect of my professional life.
