About me

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas with 14 years of experience working with children, teens and their families. I use a collaborative approach, working with the client to identify issues affecting their lives and working together to facilitate hope, healing and growth.

I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, anger, & parenting challenges. I also have experience working with concentration, memory and focus (adhd).

I use a variety of techniques based on client strengths and needs to focus on current concerns and past experiences to facilitate healing and change. I assist clients in recognizing negative thinking patterns and behavior, to change those patterns and move towards growth, increased quality of life and healing. Treatment approaches are all strengths-based and include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT& Person-centered Therapy.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Carrie is exactly who I've needed to talk to for a long time. I feel safe talking to her. She has heped me work through a lot of my trauma. We still have a long way to go, but I'm confident she will be by my side through it all. I am so grateful for how she has helped me.

I love my sessions with miss Carrie. She’s very respectful, intelligent and informative. She knows how to get you to focus on problems and helps you work through them in a positive meaningful way

You can tell she listens by the way she summarizes what you tell her. She was able to help me see things from very positive perspectives which helped me come out of my depression. The best part is that her advice and recommendations are given in a Christian context which is very helpful to those on a Christian journey.
