Hello! If you are here to explore BetterHelp, you are probably looking for support. I'm glad you're here. I know it is important to feel comfortable and to be able to trust your counselor, especially when you're working through personal or difficult things. Let me tell you a bit about myself to help you decide if we will be a good fit.
I have been providing counseling for over 10 years as a social worker, and have enjoyed working with many different people in a variety of situations. Some of the people I have worked with have had challenges that they never thought they could handle or work through. Typical feedback I get from my clients is that I am approachable, trustworthy, compassionate and direct in my counseling. I feel I have the ability to get a sense of where you are in your life, your struggles and where you want to end up. It's a challenging world out there and if you work with me, I want you to feel that you can trust me as I support you in this process, because feeling emotionally safe is highly important.
I have daytime, evening and weekend appointment availability. We can interact over video, chat or email, depending on your preference. On the days when I don't have appointments with you, I do check my messages regularly. I feel that maintaining a strong connection through the therapy process is also highly important.
If you feel that we would be a good fit in counseling, I encourage you to schedule an appointment. It would be an honor to work with you through this time in your life and I hope you feel empowered by taking this first step.

LCSW #8579-123 (Expires: 2023-02-28)
She’s amazing. She has helped me through so much and has validated all my feelings of what I’m going through.
Carrie is a phenomenal counsellor.
Carrie listens and understands my concerns really well however timing our calls and responding was an issue.
I got matched with Carrie 4 months ago, and she has been beyond helpful and supportive. I was in my worst condition when I reached out for BetterHelp and with Carrie’s patience, understanding, and compassion only I was able to survive the hardships I went through. She has a very friendly and caring attitude, and listens to me actively when I express my feelings. She replies to my messages as soon as she can and she addresses all my questions with compassion. She is very professional and I recommend her big time to anyone who needs support.
Carrie is an amazing counsellor. Open, relatable and has a lot of empathy. She's great at identifying core issues and pointing you towards how you can work on them.
Carrie has been a really responsive counsellor. Although we have only had one video session and some correspondence she has been open, knowledgeable and relatable.
Working on things has been amazing. Compasion, and dedication. Carrie has provided me a wonderful foundation to begin healing.
Amazing. Immediately felt comfortable and valued. Really hears you and then also validates your feelings.
Carrie has been awesome! Right away I felt completely cared for and we were able to tackle and get to work with ease.
Carrie helped me when I was in a very dark place. It isn't a silver bullet but it helps to have Carrie to reach out to when I'm struggling and don't feel supported in the right way by my family and friends. She offered me practical help but also I've benefited from just making a commitment to myself to prioritize my mental health and invest in my own well-being. Well worth it.
Very caring and supportive approach. Incredibly patient and trusting. Offers variety of techniques and guides to try and work through stresses and process thoughts. I would thoroughly recommend Carrie.
Amazing counselor, I have only been chatting to her for a short time and the difference I feel already is amazing.
