About Me

One of the great aspects of working with a therapist is that you truly get to talk without hiding parts of yourself; your thoughts, emotions, feelings, beliefs, worries, and doubts can all be shared without fear of judgment, im one of the least judgemental people you will ever meet. Im described consistantly as caring, authentic,direct, funny, personal and encouraging. I have a unique ability to tune into the whole picture and take action that leads to change. My goal in working with you is to support, encourage, and help you develop and grow in ways that are meaningful to you, leading to greater happiness. Together we can explore what is going on in your life and work as a team to achieve the improvements you are looking for.

I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California and I have worked with clients experiencing a variety of life challenges and mental health diagnoses. I especially enjoy working with people who are struggling with anxiety, stress, self-confidence and self-esteem, those who are going through a transitional time in their life, and individuals who have experienced trauma. I mostly use a person-centered approach which means you will find that I accept you for who you are, honor your feelings, and trust that you possess what is needed to create the change you would like to see in your life. When it comes to family challenges, I employ a positive parenting and attachment parenting perspective and truly enjoy helping parents implement new and hopefully more rewarding ways of interacting with their child(ren).

Written by C.A. on Jan 30, 2020 after counseling with Cara for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Cara’s sessions are unique. I have never had a counselor more quickly identify the issue and move to solutions. This is exactly what we were looking for. She’s bright and bold- a perfect fit for us. I also have a taxing schedule and the app and her availability work perfect for me on the go. I feel she has my back !
