Life is a journey that this full of experiences which challenge and inspire us. We don't have to face the challenges alone. It is important to be able to communicate our feelings, experiences, and needs in a safe environment. Sometimes we need a guide to navigate the difficulties that stand between us living fully into our best selves. I believe counseling should be a collaborative approach. It is vital that you have a a safe space, without judgement, to understand and explore how to live into your authentic self. I am passionate about creating a nonjudgmental, safe place for you to find support.

Words can’t describe how beneficial this has been! Definitely having to work through some horrible things, but at least I feel strongly supported and heard

Carrie is kind and listens so intently through our sessions, most which I end up dominating. When she speaks, it is often a very insightful comment or question she has to share. I’ve learned that these often become nuggets to mull over. Would highly recommend her! I’ve never felt judged in her presence, no matter how much I felt I should be. Good luck in your search for a therapist, dear soul! You may not need it with Carrie.
