I will track your improvement and identify either an increase or decrease of desired feelings, behaviors and thoughts.

My counseling approach is wholistic and multi-theoretical. I utilize an amalgamation of approaches which are psychodynamic, dialectical behavioral, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, rational-emotive, existential, client-centered, Jungian, mindfulness and motivational. Furthermore, my counseling style is inviting, non-judgmental, honest and always confidential. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. Encouraging dialogue and reflective thinking is paramount in my sessions.

You have done yourself a great service by seeking help! We all need help in life and deserve a listening ear and undivided attention. I absolutely love helping people, genuinely care and my purpose is to guide one’s positive self-evolution.

I would love to be your therapist and together we will manifest amazing results!

Her attention to detail is uncanny. Not only does she hear everything you say, but she also hears the things you don't say.

Written by Y.A. on Oct 31, 2021 after therapy with Jeralyn for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

If you are looking for someone who will listen to you, help you see your problems as they are and give you concrete, realistic ways to work through them, Dr. Carter is that person. When I discovered BetterHelp, I needed help to break out of a pattern of negative self-talk and avoidance of my problems. I didn't need positive affirmations or a cheerleader, which was what I had gotten with other therapists before. I was at a low point and Dr. Carter was able to help me through it so that I could function and see that it was not a lost cause. She understood my problems and what I wanted to accomplish through therapy. She helped me see where my patterns began and how I keep falling back into them. She continues to help me reframe and re-condition my thinking to break out of my negative patterns and I'm so grateful for her. I highly recommend Dr. Carter for her professionalism, empathy and expertise.

Dr carter is great. She is thoughtful and a great listener. I don’t feel like she is judge mental but listens and holds me accountable. She listens with full attention and takes good notes that she later will revisit with me. She is quick to respond and very kind. Highly recommend her :)

Dr Carter is so amazing. I’ve had anxiety for years and years and with just a few sessions I was learning things about myself and how to change my thinking and behaviors that better suited me so I can live without anxious worries. Dr Carter is very welcoming, non-judgemental and truly cares about you as a person and your therapist. She’s seen me cry and just let the tears flow while I got some things off my chest and not once did I feel shame or embarrassment, I know she has my back!

Love Jeralyn as my counselor. She is easy to trust and extremely approachable with my concerns. I feel she genuinely cares as more than just a counselor but more so a person.
