Carrie specializes in trauma recovery and couples therapy.
Carrie is passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families to find healing through self-discovery, breaking negative patterns, and finding hope. She believes that people find healing through discovering self-love and self-compassion, as well as through connection with others. She strives to create an environment of respect and compassion where her clients are comfortable to “come as they are” as they grapple with the realities of suffering and pain on their journey to healing and wholeness.
Carrie received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Auburn University and then went on to receive her Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She integrates an understanding of how biology, psychology, spirituality, and social situations influence the human experience. She primarily uses an approach rooted in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (a research-based treatment for trauma), the Gottman Method for couples therapy, and Attachment-Based Family Therapy.
She is happiest when spending time with friends and family, and also enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with her cat.
Her specialties include: Couples therapy for general distress, life transitions, affair recovery, and premarital, as well as, treatment for trauma as it relates to family of origin/childhood trauma in young adults/adults, sexual trauma, and EMDR.
