About Me

Hi my name is Carilyn Rego, but I go by Carrie. I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Maryland who has been working in the mental health field for 15 years. I have my MSW from Monmouth University and have worked in a variety of different settings and in different states. I have worked in therapy settings with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance use, PTSD, DID, and schizophrenia.

I consider my theoretical approach to be eclectic, since no two people have the same needs. I believe in giving clients the time, space, and resources they need to discover their own path to healing. I start with a person-centered approach to help clients identify their goals and then work from there to determine if a more specific type of therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is appropriate.

I have experience working with clients from all types of backgrounds and belief systems, and I pride myself in maintaining a non-judgemental atmosphere. I have specific experience and training in working with LGBTQ clients, including in supporting transgender individuals in their own unique journeys. Another area in which I have significant professional and person experience is in working with survivors of suicide.

I firmly believe that every person can live their best life given the right tools and support! It is the job of a good therapist to help each client see that potential in themselves and achieve their goals! Together, we can do this!

Carrie is amazing. She has excellent expertise in the areas that I need. She is accommodating and understanding, while being direct, logical, and honest where needed. We are a great therapeutic fit.

I look foreward to every session with Carilyn. She listens to me, gives sound advice and we also exchange ideas. I live in a rural area considered part of Appalachian America. Wonderful people just not a lot of stimulating conversation or thinking. Part of Carilyn’s “therapy” for me is unexpected opportunities to hear another’view point! I NEED someone to exchange ideas with. It becomes part of our conversation during “therapy” and I come out rejuvenated and unstagnated in my ideas! The best gift my daughter has given me is my counselor at BetterHelp!!!!

It’s been just over a year now with Carilyn in therapy and it has transformed my life for the best. She has taught me valuable life skills I will use for the rest of my life. Still so much more to learn about myself and that excites me. Carilyn is so quick to respond to me and you can tell she cares about what’s going on. I’m truly thankful for her.

Carilyn responds quickly and is very open to just communicating via text which is my preferred method.

Written by E.V. on Mar 23, 2021 after counseling with Carilyn for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and adhd

Carilyn is a fantastic listener and gives me a ton of space to talk about whatever I'm thinking or feeling in the moment. She lets me go off on tangents and then finds things to talk about within those tangents, rather than trying to keep our conversation within a certain topic or structure. She's also incredibly sweet, and always reminds me that I can always message her even during a week where we can't have a live session.
