About Me

I am a LCSW therapist with over 12 years of experience working with individuals and families in a variety of settings including a criminal court, a victim services organization, a head start program, school settings, hospitals, an out-patient medical setting, and out-patient behavioral health clinics. I have practiced in New York, Maryland, Washington DC, and Arizona, where I now reside. My experience has included working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD and other trauma related disorders, grief and loss, adjustment disorders, bipolar disorder, and ADHD. I am trained in EMDR therapy and TF-CBT.

My approach to the counseling relationship is client centered and solution focused. I want my clients to feel in control of the focus of our work together and comfortable with the pace at which we delve into topics/concerns. Most of all, my goal is for my clients to feel supported and understood.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have. I am possibly open to sessions outside of my published schedule with established clients. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you.

I have worked with Carla for five months now and I highly recommend her! She creates a safe space for sharing, has provided countless resources to reinforce our sessions, and has helped me work through some difficult emotions and relationships. She is sincere, patient, and provides helpful insights. Additionally, I appreciate her flexibility when it comes to scheduling.
