About me

Are you struggling with something internally that is holding you back to living your fullest potential? I may be able to help you uncover that strength that lies within you. My name is Carly Gelb and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have experience in the areas of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, substance use/addictions, stress, anger and relationship issues and much more. I use a non-judgmental client-centered approach that allows you to be in the drivers seat of your own therapy session. I love to use art, guided meditation, worksheets, journaling and other methods you may be open to using, to guide our experience together. If you need an unbiased ear to listen to you, and support you, then take the first step today in your journey.

I’ve worked with Carly for a few months now and have been pleased with each session! She has helped me through a lot already and will stick with her as long as I can!

I've only been working with Carly for a few weeks, but I found her to be very easy to talk to and very helpful with insights. I'm confident that will continue to get good progress towards my goals!
