Hello, I'm Cara and I have practiced counseling for over 10 years. I have worked with those battling addiction, adults and adolescents who struggle with depression, anxiety and conflict resolution. I have experience working with adolescents, families, couples and individuals. My experiences include working in outpatient, residential and in-home counseling settings.
I believe in listening to what the client needs and at the same time challenging them. I feel the way to do this is building a good rapport and to have open communication. I use more of a client based approach but am open to adjusting to what the client needs. There is a stigma around mental health which I feel needs to change. I believe every individual should seek counseling if they feel they need help and there should be no shame attached to receiving counseling services.
I look forward to helping those who are looking to take the steps to better themselves.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, ADHD

Cara has helped me through this difficult time. She is caring and prepares well before our phone calls. I find her very easy to talk to. Even personal things. She has been a wonderful person to talk to.
