“We repeat what we don’t repair” – Christine Langley-Obaugh. It is interesting that, despite how much we try, often times we are left repeating the same situation, ending up with the same outcome and wondering, “Now, how the heck did that happen again?” Counseling is a great way to explore our hurt and troubles and learn ways to overcome so we no longer feel stuck anymore.
My name is Carrie and I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in Maine with 15 years of experience in counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of struggles and diagnoses including depression, chronic anxiety/stress, obsessive compulsive disorder, LGBTQ+ needs, relationship issues, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, beginning stages of dementia, self-harm behaviors, sleep disorders, PTSD, and trauma-related issues. Populations I have served include adults, adolescents, college students, LGBTQ+, military service members and veterans, couples, and individuals caring for a loved one with some form of dementia.
My counseling style is warm and hands on in the sense that WE are in this together, you no longer have to feel alone with your struggles! I take a laid back approach in my sessions, humor and speaking freely are highly encouraged, I do not get offended easily. I believe in treating everyone with complete respect, compassion, and unconditional acceptance. I am well trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, prolonged exposure therapy, and am certified to treat insomnia from a cognitive-behavioral approach.
You must realize that you have done half the work already by deciding to pursue counseling! Let me help you get to a happier place in your life where there is hope and excitement about your situation and your future.
