About me

Hi there! I am glad you took this step towards healing and growth. Whatever your specific struggles are, I can help lead you towards their resolution. My approach is to create a safe and grounded space for you while getting to the root of your issue. Healing from a foundational place will create lasting changes over time. As we uncover these deeper layers, I make sure that you feel grounded and maintain a sense of calm and safety. My goal is to help you heal, grow, become more resilient and feel confident in facing whatever life may present to you in the future. I also work with you to help you move from simply surviving to actually thriving. I look forward to beginning this journey with you.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have a master's degree in counselor education. I have 6 years of experience in anxiety and trauma counseling and have run anxiety groups in the past. I utilize a holistic approach to therapy and pull from multiple counseling disciplines in order to tailor the therapy for each individual. Some of these include: Emotion-Focused Therapy, CBT, ACT, Existential Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused CBT, and Schema Therapy. I am also a dance instructor and know the importance of movement and art in the healing process. I am able to incorporate my training in this area with some clients as needed as well.

Cara has been helping me navigate through one of the most difficult family challenges I have ever encountered. I am so thankful for her support, help and expert advice. I feel so comfortable talking to her. It’s like have a LMHC as a friend. She is amazing at what she does and I appreciate how she goes about it. Better Help is lucky to have her on their team. This is a great platform to aid you in difficult times and or personal struggles.

Cara is absolutely amazing! She helps me work through issues in life one at a time so that I can get to the root of things. She also listens to me and what I need and offers me real advice that will help my situation and mindset. She's super sweet, but very straightforward, and she always makes sure I'm comfortable with executing the solutions she gives me.
