About Me

Are you feeling depressed? Overwhelmed? Anxious? Confused? Difficulties communicating effectively? Problems with relationships? Stressed out?

Want easy to understand support you can use right away?

This is what I offer and it includes making the most of your time and money.

How I work is that I focus on the outcomes you are looking for. It’s a collaborative effort. I am always listening to what it is you need support with that session on that day - and the take-aways that support You.

I use what is often called a multi-modality or multi-theory approach. Primarily, I use CBT, cognitive-behavioral therapy, DBT, dialectical behavior therapy, both proven to be very effective for people. They address how our thoughts impact our feelings which then impact our behaviors, and, how to manage our emotions and improve our relationship skills.

I also use Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Adlerian Therapy. Solution Focused therapy helps keep you focused in the present, thinking about solutions, and on specific actions you can take towards the outcomes you are looking for. Motivational Interviewing keeps you motivated and as you work with your strengths creating daily successes of all sizes. Adlerian theory helps eliminate outmoded or negative imprints from childhood that are weighing you down or are triggering feelings of guilt, fear, and resentment. When you look at these it helps reduce any default or go-to reactions and behaviors that keep you in situations and relationships that you want to get out of – and as time goes by - wonder why you keep getting yourself into.

The advantage of this approach is that I am able to select from a variety of theories and utilize what will be most useful for you and your particular situation or circumstance. We will start with whatever you think most important, create a plan you can start on, and come up with at least one thing you can begin doing differently, or stop doing, until your next session, and go forward from there.

I am here to help! Ready to start with a counselor who cares and utilizes an effective approach? Get it touch with me now - yes now is a good time for me too!

If I don't get back to you within an hour, I will within 24 hours.

Carrie is the best counselor I have had. She doesn't just listen to me talk. We work together on goals and she encourages me throughout the process. She's amazing!!!
