Professional statement

Carrie works with clients to explore and unpack core beliefs about themselves and the world in order to live a more meaningful life according to their values. Carrie strives to create a space for people to feel seen, heard and understood on a deep level, with the opportunity and safety to explore their inner worlds.

Many of Carrie's clients navigate feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and perfectionism that have become overwhelming, and impact how they show up at work and in relationships.

Carrie’s therapeutic approach is rooted in mindfulness, self-compassion and values based work. She draws from her training in Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and the Enneagram in order to expand clients’ capacity for connection, empowerment, and joy. Carrie also incorporates EMDR to help clients let go of the pain from their past and live more mindfully in the present.

Carrie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and received her Master’s of Science in Social Work from The University of Texas at Austin and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Carrie is also a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and has completed additional training on trauma-informed yoga and yoga in talk therapy.


Message to clients

I help high achieving and sensitive millennial women to stop doubting themselves and start feeling grounded and confident.

Often, I work with people who are tired of keeping it all together and holding things in. People like you who are done putting themselves last and ready to step into themselves and own their worth. Perfectionists who are ready to let go of having to be perfect all the time.

Maybe you’re always the one people can count on, yet you have a hard time accepting help from others.

Or you feel as though something is weighing you down, though you can’t quite pinpoint what it is.

You look like you have it all together from the outside but you aren’t satisfied with your relationships and know there is more to life.

You long to feel seen, heard and understood.

Together, we will create space for you to get in touch with yourself and your needs. In working with me, people find themselves having the confidence to make decisions that align with their values and lead to desired change.

In sessions, I strive to create a space for people to feel seen, heard and understood on a deep level, with the opportunity and safety to explore their inner worlds.

I create offerings that encourage growth, self-discovery and healing through the practices of talk-therapy, EMDR, self-compassion, mindfulness, the Enneagram and yoga.

It is my deepest belief that we all have the capacity for healing, growth and to live a meaningful life .
