About me

I have been counseling adults, teenagers, and families for 10 years, using a positive strengths-based approach. I specialize in a number of evidence-based therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy. I am committed to helping people of all ages with a range of challenges such as relationship problems, self-harm, suicidal ideation, divorce, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, attachment/adjustment difficulties, and general family conflict.

My counseling style is generally to show a lot of warmth, compassion, and acceptance, while also challenging you to change unproductive thinking patterns. People come for help coping with many different stressors and mood issues. It takes a lot of strength and courage to reach out to someone and talk about your feelings. I am hear to listen without judgement, in order to help you understand your past and bring mindfulness into your present and future.

I absolutely adore Cara! She is always there to give perfect advice and is so great with my crazy schedule. She is so easy to make a video appointment with and I love that she is as keen as texting most of our conversations as I am. She is very understanding and is a great listener. She never shoves anything at me or makes me feel self-conscious or obligated. Every time I talk to her, I feel like I'm talking to a friend I've had forever. I couldn't recommend her more!
