Do any of these sound familiar? You have to be strong and keep it all together even though it feels like the ground is crumbling beneath your feet. It seems like everyone around you is clinging to you like a life raft and you feel yourself going under. Your life is a tornado, everything is spinning and you are barely hanging on. You can feel yourself losing your grip and you know you will be sucked away at any moment.
You may be struggling with some form of addiction, self-sabotage, self-harm, shame/guilt, co-dependency, or the trauma of past abuse. You know something has to change, but you just don’t know how to make it happen.
I believe in the human potential to grow and change. We are amazing creatures and have the ability to over come severe adversity. Sometimes all we need is someone to really see and hear us. I am here to do that for you. All are welcome - LGBTQ+, Poly, Kink, any Race, Nationality, or religion.
I have over 20 years experience helping people just like you. I offer a compassionate, safe, and judgment free place to work on whatever is keeping from having your best life. I will teach you practical skills that you can use to decrease negative thought and behavior patterns that are keep you stuck while increasing your ability to be fully present and in charge of your life. I will draw on a wide range of approaches including CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, person centered, psychodynamic and humanistic to help you live your best life.
I understand how difficult and overwhelming it can be to reach out for help. I am glad you did. I know the peace and joy of getting to the other side let me help you get there. Let me share two of my favorite quotes:

Carrie is absolutely wonderful and helped me through an extremely difficult period in my life. She’s kind, understanding, but realistic. I’m very grateful to her.
Carrie is a great counselor.. she never missed my messages.. always reply as soon as she can.. even in the days she mentioned that she would be unavailable she responded to my texts.. she never get bothered from how long I write.. understanding.. patient.. advising.. I was struggling with therapists and psychologists through the past 14 years.. she is the only one that I found helpful and I really started to change an got hope after I lost 90% of it.. she made me understand myself and my partner more.. helped me to be a better communicator.. to express my needs in an assertive manner.. we are still beginning but I'm feeling that I improved a lot in short time..
Thank you Carrie..
