Dr. Carrie Willey

(Ph.D., LPC)

About Me

Hello, Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Carrie L Willey, Ph.D., LPC. I am also a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (retirement status) in New Mexico. I have worked extensively with The Meadows treatment facility in Wickenburg, AZ. During my tenure there, I learned the Post-Induction-Therapy process from Pia Mellody who authored "Facing Codependence". I facilitated the intensive Survivor's Workshop that was designed to assist participants in moving past childhood and adult trauma.
I have also worked extensively with Shades of Hope where the specialty is All Addictions and Eating Disorders (from anorexia, bulimia to compulsive overeating). I worked with Tennie McCarthy, founder and author of the book "Shades of Hope". I was the Clinical Director and therapist for Shades of Hope.
Culturally diverse populations are also part of my background experience. I worked for Indian Health Services in various tribal locations where I provided assessments and treatment for addictions and other mental health issues.
I have worked in the field of counseling/therapy for 34 years and have acquired an eclectic approach to counseling clients. Primarily, I employ the techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I have training in Peter Levines' Somatic Experiencing, as well. I find giving assignments a valuable tool to engage the client in active participation. I draw on the strengths of the individual and focus on what is working for them and help extinguish behavioral patterns that are restricting a person from becoming all they can be.
I am an avid bicyclist and average 15-30 miles on my bike per weekend. I have ridden as much as 75 miles in one day.
I am not a religious person, but I am very Spiritual and I honor all Spiritual paths. I believe that we are not Humans trying to have a Spiritual experience, rather that we are Spirit Beings trying to be Human.
I would very much enjoy the challenge of working with you to help you become the best human that you can be.
Namaste

Dr Willey, in addition to being a certified counsellor with many titles, is also very well read and updated on the latest therapeutic methods. She is an intuit that can sense much about you without you telling her beforehand and can bring stunning insight to areas of your life that needs improvement. Highly recommended!
