About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia, with over 12 years experience. My approach is client centered, transparent, genuine, & empathetic. I like to meet clients where they are & I enjoy helping them reach their goals. This is achieved by mostly utilizing Cognitive Behavioral therapy with a mix of solution focused therapy, family systems & a very effective strategy known as Motivational interviewing.

While I specialize in working with clients who are having difficulty coping with stress, loss, neglect, and abuse; I also am very good at working with clients who are dealing with self esteem, relationship, OCD, depression, chronic health conditions, and Substance Abuse.

From time to time, we all need a listening ear & someone to reflect what you have experienced. Let me applaud you on taking the steps needed to overall have a better quality of life & ultimately, to feel better & have more insight. I look forward to meeting and talking with you.

I have really gotten a lot from talking with Carla. She is direct and talks to me like a good friend who doesn’t hold back. She has given me general guidance while allowing me to maintain control over my own course of action. Her strategies and reading recommendations have been spot on. I am grateful to have her as I walk through this rough phase of my life.

She has been a blessing during my difficult times. I was reluctant to talk to someone and see that I would gain some positive perspective to my life. Well Carla made all that happen. Easy to talk to, look forward to my sessions with her but most of all I am doing great. She is the best in what she does no doubt

Carla is an amazing person to speak to. There have been many times where she have listened to me ramble about so much and still found ways to help understand and empathize the feelings I have been feeling. She's very understanding, she listens, and knows how to relate a lot of the things I've been experiencing and sharing. I highly recommend her to a lot of people who doesn't know too much about her and her practice. She's very honest, open, and transparent which makes relating her experiences to yours very easy and it just makes it that much easier to open up to her without feeling judged.

Carla has a way of communicating with me that compares to the feeling of talking to a true friend. She listens, offers insight to why I might be feeling the way I do, provides me with tools and techniques to help me work through the feelings and worries I have, and has a way of being relatable without making me feel unimportant or second to the conversation. I’ve only had a few sessions with her so far and can already see the positive affects that her therapy sessions have had on my behavior and emotional well-being. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for help!
