About Me

Hello!
I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Therapist (LIMHP) and I have been working in the mental health field since 2007. I have experience working in residential and private practice with clients of all backgrounds. I have extensive experience working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting, teen concerns, life transitions, and a wide range of challenges, including grief/loss, trauma, abuse, bipolar, and crisis and adjustment issues.

I work from a perspective of person-centered, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and believe that the process of building rapport may be the most important step of building a therapeutic relationship. I am also trained in TAC and considered a Adoption Competent Therapist working with both children and adults with adoption issues. I believe that each individual is just that, an individual and therefore need individualized treatment plans to meet your needs. I am looking forward to getting to know you and beginning or continuing the journey you are on. When you meet with me you can expect to be treated with respect and patience, free of criticism or judgement.

For my professional growth, I continuously attend training, read literature, research special areas individualized for clients, and keep up to date on all ethical, cultural and legal guidelines in the field. In addition I supervise other therapists as well as hold group supervisions and consultations with other colleagues to be the best therapist we can be to the clients we serve.

I understand it takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help or support in working through various life issues. I look forward to working together with you to identify your goals and build a treatment plan that meets your needs.

I look forward to working with you!

I have been working with Carrie for just a few weeks now, she is very attentive, shares her knowledge to the best that she can, really helps focus on the positives and really listens throughout. I leave every session feeling that tiny bit better.

Carrie has helped me to be kinder to myself and process trauma that I previously couldn’t face.

Carrie has been a brilliant source of help and support throughout what was a hard year, to say the least. She has provided me with resources and an outlet to build strength and resilience while I tackled some real challenges. Carrie always sent me through relevant resources and connected me with some great assets. She's been amazing and I can't thank her enough!

Carrie is the best person anyone could ask for. She is incredibly open, non-judgmental, very easy to talk to, incredibly supportive, understanding, and kind. She is simply an amazing human being. She has helped me overcome so much in such a small amount of time. She is a very talented and remarkable psychologist. I am very grateful to have been paired with her.

Written by A.N. on Jun 18, 2020 after counseling with Carrie for 3 months on issues concerning parenting issues, and self esteem

Carrie has been through a very hard journey with me. She's been very kind, patient, professional, non-judgmental, and I could feel like I'm talking to a friend and can be myself with her. Her support has helped me go through very dark times and face past trauma. I'd definitely recommend her !
