I will listen and assist you with compassion and work together at your pace as we find solutions to your issues at hand. My approach varies according to your issues and needs but some include cognitive behavioral therapy as well as solution focused and rational-emotive therapy. Every session is individualized and tailored to your needs at the time of the session. We will work together to identify your needs and work on achieving your goals.
It takes a lot of courage to seek help, that is the most difficult step, once you take the step, I will help and guide you in being able to work through your issues, and feeling comfortable within yourself, and empower you to face any issue that comes your way with positivity and open mindedness. Once you decide, I am here to support and empower you.

Amazing listener. I feel like I'm talking to a friend rather than a therapist. She makes it easy to vent and access and get a grip on my life!

Carmen just gets me. She has approached therapy with me in a playful and unorthodox way and talking with her feels like a weight has been lifted.
