About me

It can be scary when memories of abuse and trauma refuse to stay in the past and insist on interfering with your present. There is a frustration and confusion that comes when you want to be close to others, but you've also learned that people and the world aren't safe.

I am an individual, family and adolescent counselor licensed in Michigan and Ohio with 6+ years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including, trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, depression, emotional abuse and anger management. I love helping individuals find their voice and reclaim the narrative of their lives in beneficial ways.

My counseling style is warm and attentive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am skilled in creating treatment plans that will help you meet your individual needs.

It takes a tremendous amount of bravery to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and I commend you on taking the first steps towards a change.

I look forward to working with you!

I've only had one session with Carmen so far, but from the start she is a therapist who I can tell is truly supportive, encouraging & simply yet profoundly here to help me.

In only a few short weeks I'm beyond satisfied with the results I've experienced thus far. She asks all the right questions to spark the response needed jog your thinking and gives an honest assessment of how she feels things are going. Last, but not least he voice is very calming as well, which helps to relax any anxiety that you may have coming into your session, which is very appreciated!

Carmen is a great therapist! I always feel supported when I communicate with her and she gives me further insight to my point of view or thought process when I get stuck on a situation. Carmen also asks questions that help me see a different point of view to situations that I don’t think about in the first place. She offers many suggestions to help decompress and listen to what my actual needs may be. Overall, I would highly recommend Carmen as a therapist to others if they’re looking for someone compassionate and open-minded!
