 “We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love,” Tim Robbins

Tami Chelew is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #79759 and practices at the Alliant Couple & Family Clinic. The Alliant Couple and Family Clinic is the Research and Training Institute for Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Tami is specially trained and certified in two distinct styles of therapy and also has special certification as a sexual addiction therapist (CSAT): The two styles of therapy Tami uses are Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). Both styles have substantial benefits in helping individuals, families and couples understand and deepen their connections and relationships with their spouse, family or friends.

I strongly believe that secure attachment bonds formed early in life are essential for a healthy sense of well being and in maintaining healthy relationships with others. At the same time, I realize that for many, this may not be a reality. The good news is that even if one did not receive healthy, safe attachments early in life, there is still hope. Healthy love and connection with secure attachments can, and indeed does, happen later in life.  My heart is to help my clients achieve this individually and with one another – as spouses, partners, parents, adolescents and children.
