I believe every individual holds the key to their own happiness and possesses the power to change their lives for the better...

Sometimes we need guidance and support in evaluating a situation, understanding our needs, recognizing our thoughts, and identifying what needs to change. Developing healthy coping strategies and improving our overall mental health requires mindfulness in our present day life.

I approach counseling and psychotherapy from a non-judgemental, empathetic, logical, person-centered perspective. Through a collaborative effort with the individual, couple, or family, I incorporate principles from behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, psycho-educational, and solution-focused modalities. Each treatment plan is highly tailored to the needs of the client.

Successful therapy starts with choosing a therapist you feel comfortable with and that can be a difficult task. A therapist's gender, age, specialties, education, and experience are all factors that should be taken into consideration.

I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 10 years and have a solid foundation in working with families and adolescents for over 20 years. Please look at my specialties on my profile to decide if they reflect your needs and if they do, please call or send me an email with your contact information and I will be happy to set up an appointment with you.

I have been seeing Carrie for several years now and am so grateful to have found her. She is the most thoughtful and supportive provider I have ever been to. I have seen a few others who meant well but did not take the time to understand my experiences like Carrie did, and it has made all the difference. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone that I can because she has had such a positive impact on my life.

I have been seeing Carrie since 2012 when I was 22 years old, all the way up to now, and I must say she has been the best therapist of the bunch! I've had a hard time finding someone I feel comfortable with to talk to and I trust Carrie 100%. She helps me find coping tools to help me work through my grief and my PTSD. Carrie is kind, understanding, easy to talk to, and efficient! Sometimes I feel like I need guidance cause I don't have a plan or a clue, and she helps me so much with finding purpose in my life. She also is very quick to respond when I feel I need to bump up an appointment and see her sooner. She will sometimes go from seeing me monthly, to bi weekly, to weekly, sometimes even twice a week depending on my needs. Because of Carrie, I feel I have become more self efficient, and more in control and confident in myself. I would highly recommend giving her a try if your new to therapy and worried about finding one that works for you!
