About Me

I understand, it's hard to know how to select the right counselor to help you and your partner at this time in y'all's relationship. It is my goal to help your process be as easy as it can be by providing y'all a safe, supportive, and accepting environment to begin this unique journey. I offer compassion and objective listening; together we can orchestrate the best plan to help the two of you through this time or to simply strengthen y'all's relationship.

It is my goal to empower families and couples to overcome personal obstacles in order to improve their relationships by using clinically tested interventions. Healthy relationships can improve overall well-being. I enjoy working with families and couples. I take an eclectic approach when formulating a customized treatment plan that best fits y'all's specific needs and goals. Examples of approaches I might work from are cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused. I believe people are constantly seeking to grow and renew themselves and blossom into their fullest potential.

I would be delighted to help your family become engaged again with positive communication, better understanding of one another, and even the return of laughter.
I have a passion for restoring intimate relationships to their healthiest state. Relationships with respect, trust, and love with the most important people in your lives.

I hold two Master's Degrees; one in Leadership and another in Counseling; and I am also a nurse. I believe my educational background and work experience assists me in approaching and treating the 'whole' person. I look forward to working with you and your partner.

Cara has been extremely helpful during therapy. She listens attentively to our concerns and tailors her work with our needs.

Cara is a wonderful, thoughtful counselor that really took the time to listen and assist my partner and I. We have greatly benefited from our sessions together and are very grateful to have been paired with her! She gave me the confidence and reassurance I needed to continue growing as a person and a partner and I highly recommend her as a Regain counselor.

We have only had one session with Cara, but we both felt heard during our session. Some of the suggestions that Cara made seemed simple, but really helped. For example, have a "safe word" when we are in a disagreement about something HELPED! We used the strategy and it worked.

Cara is wonderful! She's a balance of professional and personable, and has been a joy to work with. We're able to flexibly make appointments and have our sessions correspond to what works best for our needs, whether its video or voice calls, or simply messaging back and forth in between sessions when we have any questions or concerns. She's been a tremendous help in enabling me and my partner to better communicate and support one another to further strengthen our relationship, and she herself is great at communicating to us her insights and methods for us to use in order to introspect and improve. I couldn't recommend her more!
