About Me

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 wonderful. I’ve had terrible luck with therapists in the past and at 30 years old she is the first good therapy I’ve ever received.

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 a true professional! Her prompt, thoughtful and insightful replies buoy me and I feel fortunate to have connected with her.

Written by K.A. on Apr 13, 2020 after counseling with Karie for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I can confidently say Karie is a great counsellor who is honest, fair, understanding and trustworthy. I've been working with Karie for about 7 months now and can definitely see the results. She always replies within hours (we are located in different time zones) and never fails to find a suitable time slot for me. I couldn't ask for a better counsellor.

I would recommend her to anyone!

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 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.

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.

Written by E.L. on Jun 28, 2019 after counseling with Karie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and compassion fatigue

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.

Written by G.L. on Jun 14, 2019 after counseling with Karie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

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.
