About Me

Hello! I know starting therapy can be difficult. The first step is the most difficult and you have already done that! It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist. As a therapist, my style is collaborative and adjusted based on each person’s individual needs. My approach to therapy is individualized often integrating Adlerian, cognitive-behavioral, and rational-emotive counseling.

It is my priority to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you. I have over 15 years of clinical experience in various settings. My experience includes anxiety, stress, parenting, grief/loss, Autism, ADHD, and PTSD. I have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University. I am licensed in Florida as a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC). Also, I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor.

In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages at least twice daily Monday through Saturday. Also, I offer live chat, phone, and video sessions on select days.

I look forward to working with you!

Carrie is the best therapist I've ever had. She's a great listener who really gets it and has a great way of guiding you and truly helping you find your way. I am so grateful to have found her.

I was skeptical at first, trying online therapy , but after one session with Carrie I was pleasantly surprised at how she is able to use insight and knowledge to get to the root of the issue! I have had more progress with her in 4 sessions then I had seeing any other therapists for sometimes years! She has made me a believer and I feel so fortunate to have been paired up with her.

Carrie Longest is the first therapist Ive ever consulted live or in person. i am very pleased with our interactions. At first I thought four sessions would be sufficient but Carrie was able to bring out issues that were important to discuss. I'm very pleased with her. She's like a girlfriend who wont repeat your secrets

Carrie has been able to identify a lot of the challenges I have faced in my situation. And I have felt understood and identified with because she explain things in a way that I hadn’t thought of before. She is an excellent counselor and I am glad to have her help me through this.

I know a therapist is supposed to be a good listener, but Carrie has so far exceeded my expectations. She is extremely easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. We have done 2 sessions so far and I look forward to more.
