About Me

Nothing can be quite as frustrating as when you and your partner seem to be living in different worlds and speaking a different language. Most couples will fall into that gray area from time to time, but it does help to have an advocate. Someone who understands how to speak both languages and to help everyone get on the same page. The goal is not always to be together or to be apart. The goal is to understand the decision and work together accordingly. You're here! Right here, right now! Taking the next step towards improving your relationship. Towards understanding your partner and to be heard! You may not be there yet, but you have already taken a leap in the right direction. I'm here to help you. I'm here to help you expose the path to seeing positive change! Helping you make even the smallest steps towards your goal every day brings me joy and this is why I love what I do. There will be times when you feel you aren't being heard or validated by your partner. I am here to help bridge that gap of discord. I will highlight the work you are doing towards a positive outcome that may seem too small to notice. I'll notice! I can even tell a corny joke or two to lighten up the mood. You’ll be surprised how much a little positivity can help lead things in the right direction.

By the way, I have been a counselor for almost a decade. I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified rehabilitation counselor with additional experience in helping individuals get back to work to attain the highest success possible after experiencing any life changing issues. I have helped people with almost everything you can think of. I have helped those with severe mental health concerns and those with mild ones. I have multicultural experience and have lived in and visited many different countries (experience does help!). I've learned a lot about cultural differences and appreciations. I respect the variation that we have as humans. I understand that there are times when struggles and challenges approach us and we need a little extra boost to help us work through it. I am here to help! When I counsel, my style is energetic, compassionate, and supportive. I am centered to provide support to my clients and I want to listen to you and be as helpful as is humanly possible. I am a firm believer in positive psychology, as I love highlighting the strengths I can see! I love to empower my clients. I can't wait to meet you!

So far Carla has been very professional, attentive, and understanding. We're still in this counseling process but I feel like she's very qualified to be doing what she's doing.

Thank you Carla for helping me outI She understood my struggle in a very short time, and helped me point it out and solve it in a way that no one could. You're amazing Carla.

Carla is awesome and very in tune with her clients. I always feel understood and validated even if I’m the “bad guy” in the situation. 200% satisfied

Carla was instrumental in helping us save our relationship. She is an amazing listener, insightful, and very good at diffusing tension and getting me to open up and feel comfortable. She not only was excellent at helping us through relationship problems, but she also helped me recognize how a lot of my own biases and issues were affecting the way I approached the people I love. I am very grateful for her and can not recommend her enough!
