My Approach to Helping
Carrie employs a warm and engaging style in her approach to therapy. She seeks to connect with each of her clients in a way that makes them feel comfortable and understood. Carries philosophy is grounded in psychodynamic psychotherapy, meaning that therapy is utilized to understand not only the symptoms presented, but also the roots of the symptoms, leading to longer-term change. Carries hope is that she helps clients not only resolve the immmediate challenge for which assistance is sought, but that she can also help them develop the tools necessary to carry the skills forward and apply them to other challenges they may face in the future.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
One of my areas of expertise is couple/marital therapy, which occupies at least half of my psychotherapy practice. Couple/Marital Therapy is way to help couples who are working through relationship/marriage challenges or seeking pre-marital assistance. Couples Therapy attempts to enhance a relationship or marriage to make it better, stronger, and more likely to endure its inevitable challenges. This can be accomplished by a blend of joint and/or individual sessions as determined by the couples’ specific needs and goals.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
One of the first objectives of therapy is to develop a "container" in which painful emotions can be held for the duration of therapy. A container symbolizes a "holding" place for feelings within the therapeutic relationship and within the therapeutic experience. Over time this capacity will develop in which emotions can be held inside the therapy, making everyday life more manageable while issues get worked through.
