Welcome to Attachment Nerd

Hello there! I'm Eli,

Nothing in life matters to us more than our close relationships.

Keeping those relationships secure + connected isn't always easy.

Throughout my entire therapy career, I've been nerding out on the art and science of attachment relationships.

And now, my mission is to share all of that goodness with you.


  • I am a licensed therapist with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology
  • I have three children
  • Two of them hung out in my uterus at the same time
  • I had an insecure ambivalent attachment pattern until I figured this stuff out
  • I married someone with an avoidant pattern
  • We both worked our butts off and have created a secure attachment
  • I have serious earring and lipstick habits
  • Gummy candy over chocolate. Sorry. I know I lost a few of you over that.

My goal is to make this journey as fun and stress-free as possible, by sharing all the amazing research and healing I've learned along the way.

I am so glad you are here.

“It's changing the way I parent and it reinforces the relationship and trauma work I've already been working on. It complements my efforts and it brings me so much relief knowing I am not alone in this and having frequent reminders so I don't forget what is important to me. Thank you so much Eli!”


“You are helping me setting my boundaries as a person, as a family of 4, and your suggestion on gentle parenting are inspiring.”
