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.

Carmen has helped me immensely in such a short period of time. I feel like she truly cares about my recovery and helping me process my trauma. I really feel as though she was the perfect match for me.
I have just started working with Carmen. So far my consulting is going better than another counselors I have seen in the past. I believe Carmen is very invested in my success. I finally have a counselor that will help me make positive changes in having a better outlook on life.
I find Carmen to be very understanding. She is patient when I cry and let’s me scream if I feel like screaming. I have made real progress with her in a short time.
She is helpful in giving me insight and at the same time letting me figure things out
for myself. Reach my own conclusions.
Carmen is very kind and patient. She allows me to think in ways I would have never though of, she is truly helping me bring my true character out to life. She’s helping me find my voice I thought I had but didn’t, I am very thankful for her.
The support Carmen has given me has been a great encouragement. She reminds me that I have value and helps me reflect on my own worth. I am surprised actually at her availability and the responses that I get from her. My schedule is a difficult one and I can trust that she will be able to respond to me even late into the evening. I feel like I really have someone in my corner.
