Carissa is the partner I've been looking for in my journey with therapy. She's straightforward yet caring, she probes yet with a clear/kind intent, and she really takes care to build on past sessions. I've been to a few therapists who were very validating but didn't challenge me to grow. Carissa does both!

Absolutely amazing. She gives me very good advice, listens to me and is probably the one thing that I look most forward to in the week is talking to her.
