Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy
HOLISTIC | INTEGRATIVE | EXPERIENTIAL
“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.”
Hi, I’m Carrie.
Whatever is happening in your life right now, we can face it with care and find authentic, effective ways to handle it, together.
For over 20 years, I’ve worked with people, groups, organizations, and communities in making positive change. I have also experienced my own healing journey from childhood abuse and family dysfunction, so I’m intimately familiar with the terrain. My life’s passion is for healing trauma and transforming pain into wholeness, and that’s what I’ve trained to do.
My approach is:
Holistic — we are mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and relational beings. When we have a problem in one of these areas, it affects the others. There can be multiple ways in.
Integrative — including Bowen family therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic and Mindfulness work, Trauma-informed care and EMDR, attachment-orientation, Recovery and the 12 steps, Transpersonal psychology, Gottman, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Imago dialogue for couples, and more.
Experiential — techniques that engage our whole selves to heal, learn, and grow, not just relying on “talk” therapy alone, within your comfort level.

Individual Therapy — Kids and Teens
All the same things that adults go through, our kids and young people do, too, only with the added strain of intense phases of growth, and without the cognitive or emotional resources. I use experiential techniques including play therapy, art, and narrative to help kids and teens communicate their inner experiences, and begin to gain a sense of control over what is theirs. I also work with families to address the dynamics that may be important, and create support for positive change.
