About Me

You're here! Right here, right now! You may not be there yet, but you have already taken a step towards facing challenges with a strength you never knew you had. Besides, it doesn't hurt to get a little assistance on the way. I'm here to help you. Let me tell you something. Nothing is as remarkable as seeing positive change in my client! Helping you make even the smallest steps towards your goal every day brings me joy and I like to do these silly dances when I've noticed your progress. Even when they seem too small to notice, I'll notice! I can even tell a corny joke or two. You’ll be surprised how much a little positivity can help.

I have been a counselor for almost a decade. I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified rehabilitation counselor with additional experience in helping individuals get back to work to attain the highest success possible after experiencing any life changing issues. I have helped people with almost everything you can think of. I have helped those with severe mental health concerns and those with mild ones. I have multicultural experience and have lived in and visited many different countries (experience does help!). I've learned a lot about cultural differences and appreciations. I respect the variation that we have as humans. I understand that there are times when struggles and challenges approach us and we need a little extra boost to help us work through it. I am here to help! When I counsel, my style is energetic, compassionate, and supportive. I praise your progressions, and I can show you how to be proud of your efforts and steps in the right direction. I am client-centered and I want to listen to you and be as helpful as is humanly possible. I am a firm believer in positive psychology, as I love highlighting your strengths! I love to empower my clients. I can't wait to meet you!

First time trying therapy so it was embarrassing for me to tell someone some of these things, but she made me feel comfortable and trust that I could talk her.

Carla is relatable and she makes it easy to be open with her about anything

Carla has been very helpful to me. She listens to me and is so receptive to what I am sharing. She is attentive to detail and sometimes questions me and pushes in ways I have never thought of. Multiple ways of communication are always offered and the one I choose is always respected. She is so encouraging and pushes me to reach further and to achieve some of my goals!

So far I have really appreciated Carla’s advice and support. She has helped me see things in a new light and calmed some of my anxieties.

Carla is a wonderful person to talk to. She listens to me and my problems, and give me tips and tools to help me deal with some things when life gets a bit much from time to time. She knows how to brighten even the worst of days with her charm, humor, and wit. She cares about your problems as well and genuinely wants you to make progress towards fixing them. I am beyond glad I joined BetterHelp when I did, because I would still be struggling if not.

Carla is very helpful and seems to have an understanding of what I am going through. She asks a lot of good questions that gets me thinking about possible solutions. She is thorough and not pushy. I feel listened to and understood.

Carla’s great at checking in with me and helping me find the crack of light when life seems a bit dark. I love having Carla on my side helping me forward on tough days!

Carla is truly a blessing. As someone who was hesitant about therapy, especially online, I cannot recommend BetterHelp and Carla enough. She quickly is able to identify your problems, reiterates them to you, and provides her input in a very calming manner. She has provided me with positive, yet realistic, ways to view my current problems. I cannot recommend her enough!

Carla has been very detailed and specific. It has been comforting to speak to her and to know that she's always available for me.

Carla is a fantastic listener and does a wonderful job of not only reinforcing your positive thoughts, but helping you to understand your negative thoughts and supply you with the tools to deal with, and eventually, overcome them.

Carla is up beat and easy to talk to.

Written by A.L. on Aug 04, 2018 after counseling with Carla for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Carla has been great so far. She has really assisted me with getting through a rough time. She's able to put things in a different perspective that I was unable to because I was solely focused on some negative things. She brought me out of the negativity and has continued to help me get through life. She's incredibly understanding and very positive. I personally cant thank her enough for what she's done for me.

Even though I have never met Carla in person, I really felt like she was reading and understanding my concerns. I didn't question her expertise, I really believe she makes a difference, being able to read, write back, and most importantly, answer my concerns. I never used this method before, but I recommend it because she touched on some things that changed my perspective and she gave me the boost to really believe in myself and that the changes I made were positive. When I get an email from her, it really makes me confident that I'm not alone and sometimes, it's almost like talking to a friend.
