Carla Fort, LPC, LPCC
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!

Carla is fantastic. I've been working with her regarding my divorce and the death of a parent, and all of the feelings that come along with those events. Carla listens, asks questions that make me think. She really pays attention and follows up with things we touched on in previous sessions. She even checks in with me during the week when she knows I have something going on, just to make sure I'm doing ok. I feel a positive change in my life and Carla has been a big part of that. I look forward to continuing my therapy with her.

Carla is the best hands down! She has helped me grow so much! She’s a great listener, easy to talk too, she’s relatable, she pushes you to become a better person with out even knowing your being pushed. She has helped me grow so much! I love our conversations! I have been with Carla for quite a few years now and I don’t know where I’d be without her. She truly is amazing.

Carla has been so helpful to me over the last few years. When I started therapy with her my anxiety levels were high, over time though, as I learned how I was being gaslighted, my anxiety decreased gradually. She patiently helped me process anger and sadness and even help make sense of some of it all. She asked a whole lot of questions too that made me do some thinking. I feel like I'm ready to move forward now to new challenges and make new decisions that will be good for me.
