Hi! My name is Carla and I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for almost 30 years. I recently moved to Texas from California to be near my grandchildren which has provided me an opportunity to be licensed in both States. I have been married for almost 30 years and have raised a step-son and two daughters. I have personal and professional experience on how to manage blended family situations. All couples need help at some point in their marriages. I am here to help you sort out the issues and improve your communication and relationship.
I believe in a person-centered counseling approach encouraging each member of the couple to be the expert in their own life. I believe that true change comes when a couple is able to clarify what it is they want to be different in themselves and within the relationship. Next, help couples develop strength-based interventions and strategies for achieving and maintaining that change. I am confident I can help walk you and your partner through that process by treating you each with respect, provide you with honest and open feedback, compassion and unconditional positive regard.
I have extensive experience working with couples where one or both are in need of addiction counseling, help for depression, anxiety and trauma related issues and overcoming infidelity. Most of my clients have been with me on and off for long periods of time and regard me as someone who is warm, available and extremely engaged. I know that some of what we discuss during a session needs to be practiced during the week, so I am happy to have short communications in between sessions so you and your partner can get the most out of the counseling experience.
Asking for help is a big step and I am here for you 100%!

I've reviewed Carla before but I will say it again and again and again. She is an AMAZING therapist! She really understands both of us and helps us communicate so much better!
I've tried many therapists but Carla is so empathetic, smart and caring. She has always been there for me and I trust her completely.
We have had 2 sessions with Carla so far and I feel like she is very experienced with our type of issues. she has a great bedside (or computer-side :)) manner and I appreciate her humor, empathy and overall approach. very thankful we found her!
