Are you feeling hurt or overwhelmed by something that happened to you? Do you find yourself stuck in upsetting patterns of thinking, feeling, or behaving that make it difficult to move forward and make decisions in your personal or professional life? Considering making changes in your life can feel daunting, and counseling can provide support and guidance as you continue building a more fulfilling life for yourself. In my practice, I strive to create a safe, collaborative, non-judgmental atmosphere that will help you better understand the difficulties you're experiencing and learn about ways to overcome them. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery that will help you connect with your inner life, unbind from the past, and live fully in the present. As you learn about and acknowledge different aspects of yourself, you will find rough spots, as well as resources. All parts of your experience play important roles and we can understand what has been useful, what parts might be modified, as well as parts that offer strength and support that can be built upon. These discoveries remove potential obstacles to your growth and open avenues for connection and well-being.
I believe that therapy can not only alleviate specific hardships or teach more compassionate self-care, but that therapy can be emotionally transformative. I practice this belief with rigor, I believe my role is to provide a supportive, yet challenging environment that fosters emotional well-being, new insights, and change. I am an active participant in the therapy session. Together we will be able to set therapeutic goals and follow a clear path to achieve them. I hold emotions and affect in the highest regard and pay particular attention to non-verbal communications. I address a wide variety of difficulties and issues in my practice, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, mood and personality disorders. I also have extensive experience helping those dealing with significant life changes such as education, employment, marriage and divorce, or loss and grief.
I have been a licensed clinical social worker for the State of Rhode Island for 18 years, working in the community mental health field as well as private practice for over 9 years. I have a very flexible schedule and will check and respond to messages several times a day throughout the day, seven days a week. I also offer live chat, phone sessions and video sessions as needed and these can be scheduled based on need and at our convenience.

Karie is literally so amazing , she knows all the right things to say and listens. Always there for you!
Karie has been everything I could have asked for - attentive, super reliable, flexible (which was really helpful given I'm in a different time zone), and just overall really, really helpful. She helped me through a very rough year and I could turn to her anytime anyday knowing she'll be there with the best advice. I never for a second felt judged by Karie - which I have experienced with other therapist before . Could not recommend her more.
Karie is a fantastic counsellor. We were working together on my ongoing relationship anxiety and I can now confidently say, I don't feel even close to how I used to feel before I started counselling. It was not been an easy journey and had its ups and downs but Karie has always been able to keep me motivated and get me back on track. She is extremely understanding, intelligent, kind and honest. She is also very professional and knows exactly what she is doing. I couldn't recommend Karie enough - I truly would have given up if this wasn't for her hard work.
Karie is amazing and a total badass. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Also I accidentally pressed the wrong button on one of the questions on this survey - I meant to give her straight As but I accidentally pressed the opposite answer so plz disregard that!!! Love her.
Karie is the first psych I have felt comfortable really opening up to, for the first time I feel like I'm being listened to and understood rather than just being labelled a name and a number brushed aside and hardly listened to.
Katie has been a huge help to me the last few months! I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and found her expertise and calming demeanor to be an immense help during a hard time. While I feel ready to take my next step away from therapy, I know Karie has set me up for success and taught me many lessons I will carry with me for a long time to come. I cannot recommend her services enough, thank you so much Karie!!
Karie is great, she’s a extremely gentle and very kind. I feel very supported when I talk to her and that she will be able to help me get better.
She’s amazing all around!!!
Karie Leduc is encouraging, kind, understanding, and so helpful. I’ve never been in or used any sort of therapy service before, but Karie has made this first experience comfortable and easy. It’s clear from the start that there is no pressure, and that she is only there to help you. I would highly recommend Karie to anyone in need of therapy.
Karie is responsive, empathetic, and supportive, and although we worked together only briefly, I would recommend her.
Karie, has been great so far. She has listened to everything, and has given me tools to help manage my difficulties. I would strongly recommend her to anyone else in need of some help.
Karie is a true professional! Her prompt, thoughtful and insightful replies buoy me and I feel fortunate to have connected with her.
Responsive and great!
Lovely and professional. I felt at ease with Karie, and in good hands, from the first session. Feel very lucky to have found such a great counsellor.
I found Karie to be very kind, thoughtful, and a wonderful listener. She helped me gain a better understanding of anxiety and provided several effective strategies to keep it from hindering my every day life.
Karie has been so wonderful to me! She has made counseling such a great experience! She is so kind and thoughtful with everything she does, and always checks in, in between sessions! She builds such good relationships and really supports you in every way possible!
Karie is the best therapist I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She is a great listener, she asks the right questions to help get to the root of the issue, she is caring and supportive, never judgmental, she also helps give great tips on how to work through my issues that has helped me change so much in just a few short months. I would recommend her to anyone!
Starting to bond really well with Karie, she’s very friendly and understands exactly what I want to achieve.
In a very short time Karie has gotten to know me pretty well and has been very supportive. I know she "hears" me, even though I'm typing!
I am so grateful to have Karie as my online therapist. In just a few exchanges she got to know me and how to help me through my problems. She knows what questions to ask, she empowers me to recognize my own strengths and make positive changes in my life.
I feel in a short period Karie was able to assist me in understanding how to empower myself in my difficult situation. I appreciate her genuine style and openness in session.
I haven't been seeing Karie for that long, but thus far she has been absolutely fantastic. She is incredibly supportive, insightful, and has an eye towards goal setting and actionable steps that translates perfectly into tackling challenges head-on in a manageable, non-intimidating way. I would highly recommend Karie to any of my friends or family.
100 % Best way to get help in a busy world.
Karie has been nothing short of brilliant since we met one month ago. I've thoroughly enjoyed our talks and feel so listened to. I couldn't recommend her more. Thank you Karie!!
Karie is absolutely amazing.
Karie is amazing. Counseling isn’t just a job for her; she knows that there is a person on the other end. She doesn’t just jump in to solve problems, she also gets to know the other person and is really sincere and enthusiastic when talking to them.
Karie is a very understanding person. She also offered me a lot of useful information on how to overcome my fear of anxiety. She gave me some hope when I was most desperate. I really appreciate it. It's just text counseling sometimes could be a little not so accurate. We haven't had a video counseling yet, maybe I want to have a try in the later session.
Amazing. Understanding. Professional.
